Curious to know more about the Avon lady, eh? Let’s cut to the chase: you can read about my Avon journey here.
Oh, you want to know more about me personally? Well, read on!
SIDE NOTE #1: I am not cool – and I am okay with that.
By day I work at a Portland, Oregon general practice law firm as a legal assistant/bookkeeper/office & marketing manager. I write blog posts for the firm too – a completely different subject area than this blog!
SIDE NOTE #2: Despite my formal writing style (you did read what I do for a living above, right?), I don’t take myself too seriously, nor do I have any difficulty in making a fool out of myself.
I am happily married and a mother of two adult children. My daughter was born in 1992 and my son was born in 1994. I’m insanely proud of them both – they each inspire me in different ways.
My husband and I have two cats and he’d love to add a dog to the mix, but so far I’ve managed to keep that acquisition at bay. Don’t get me wrong, I love dogs, but I ain’t got no time for that – dogs are WAY needier than cats!
I am terrified of grasshoppers and crickets – I don’t do random. My fear probably borders on a phobia. I refuse to admit it is a phobia. I’m probably on the OCD scale – I don’t care enough to find out for sure. I am Type A, an overachiever and Irish – which basically means I do things with relish and a temper. I swear like a sailor in person and have a dry, sarcastic wit. I’m your run-of-the-mill smart-ass soccer mom.
A few of my hobbies include hiking, bowling, playing pool, singing karaoke, doing crosswords, reading, eating nachos, running and taking naps. A few of my hates include traffic, chaos and most veggies. I’m also a salt fiend rather than a sugar hound.
In January 2012 I began a journey towards bettering my health and by mid-2013, I had reached my weight loss goal of 40+ pounds! In January 2013 I started running/power walking and it has not only changed my body, it’s changed my life!
SIDE NOTE #3: Despite exercising regularly and being generally being healthy, I still possess a mama belly, flabby triceps and cellulite. These facts irk me, but I seem to care less the older I get.
