About Julie

Stuff about me that you may or may not want to know:

I can make great frog noises

I love almond cookies…and am able to eat more than my fair share if no one is looking.

I sing so badly that my own children have asked me to stop…and in some cases while crying.

I was once bitten by a squirrel..yet continue to feed them anyway.

If I could be any animal, I would be a lemur because they always look so happy.

I find it close to impossible to find a good pizza…and I live in NY! It’s time to admit that I actually don’t like pizza.

I won’t swim in the ocean because I’m afraid of jelly fish. It’s not the sharks, it’s the jelly fish.

I flew in a C-14 to England from Germany and didn’t throw up once!

I flew to Denver and threw up the entire way.

I love polka music to the chagrin of my family.

I drink way too much coffee…way too much coffee….did I say way too much coffee?? 😉

ok, serious stuff…

I have 4 kids, 4 dogs and 2 cats and a messy house.

I used to be a teacher, back hoe operator /pipeline technician, circuit board tester, electronic calibration specialist, technical writer, insurance agent, pipeline worker, student teacher supervisor and education professor, Geologist, news paper owner, professional seamstress, CEO of a publications house, waitress, corrosion technician, lost runaway, homeless mother, and dreamer. None of that crap matters because all I ever really wanted to be was a good mother.

I met my husband on eHarmony over a decade ago and will tell any single friends that it really does work! He’s the man I was waiting for my whole life. He’s good and kind and makes me laugh.

In my perfect world I would grow all my organic food yet live close enough to a real city to spend the day in museums and super cute cafes drinking lots of coffee. I think I would need an assistant.

I was in the Air Force and have hundreds of stories that I someday really want to tell. The good, the bad, and the stories of creeps in uniform who think you should respect them just because they put on an extra stripe. (aka a#$@#les who don’t deserve to be in the same room as a female) I was able to live in Germany for a few years. For that, I’m eternally grateful.

I’m a lot of things to a lot of people.  I am worthy of my happiness and I’m more aware of my blessings than I could ever explain.

I want to thank the late Dr. Wayne Dyer for changing my life and teaching me the keys to happiness. I found him on a PBS channel over 20 years ago and my life hasn’t been the same. I own every book he’s written and the old cassettes and VHS’s. (showing my age) If you are reading this and don’t know who he is…please Google him.
