Personal Information:
Born in Kansas. Grew up in the SF Bay Area. Living in the Sacramento, CA area which I love. Married with two mischievous yet loving kitties. Worked in public service for 26 years and proud of it. Recently retired and working on taking care of myself and finding out who I am after being work-focused for much of my life.

Other Information:
I love to run but have had injuries over the past years so mainly walk, hike, cycle and swim. I was training for my first triathlon when I broke my ankle (getting into a kayak!) I hope to be able to train for one again. I also like being outside, the ocean, the mountains, animals, especially our two kitties, reading, watching movies and TV series, spending time with my good friends.

    Bets, There are always two sides of the story...Yes, your description of out there is real, but as you said, I tend to look at the brighter side of life. After all, with what is happening out there, I would hate to add to the misery.

    What a kind thought! But I scored today with the coconut mocha coffee! Still, that macadamia nut mocha sounds awesome. I've never seen that around here!

    One thing these "substitutions" and rolling shortages have done for many of us is force us to try something new. I have discovered a new dishwasher detergent, in the process. Still not sure I like the liquid soap they substituted, as I seem to think it dries my skin out more. Oh, well... it's a learning adventure, right?

    Have a great Friday & thanks again for thinking of me! Must be a hard time for you as well with anniversaries of loss?
