Welcome to Memoirs of a Memory! I hope you will find something here you enjoy and that you will return again and again.
I was born in Texas, and grew up on the Kansas plains and the Wyoming mountains; and in 1995 I made Colorado my home for over twenty years. I also spent a couple years in California, had a five year stint in New Mexico (Roswell sux) and spent several months in Salt Lake City while my daughter was in the hospital. (Beautiful place.) I still call Wyoming home, though.
Recently, I sold everything I own except a twin bed and a few necessities, quite my job with the county, grabbed my faithful pal Captain (My German Sheppard mix) and headed for the Ozark mountains. I only took what I could pack into a small U Haul trailer and the back of my pickup truck; which I have affectionately dubbed Tawanda. (If you haven’t seen the movie Fried Green Tomatoes, you need to!)
I lived in a tent for a few months and now that I am in a house, I like to write in my spare time between looking for jobs and working temp jobs. The market out here is terrible! (Unless you’re a nurse or can run a chicken farm. Guess that leaves me out!) It is my dream to be an author and I figure I may as well practice here. Thanks for being my guinea pigs! haha
At thirty five years of age, I found myself single, laid off from my job as a paralegal, and decided to do one thing I had always wanted to do. I went back to school, and this time, after five fun filled years because they didn’t want to take even half of the credits of classes I had already taken, I actually graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree. I figured I was going to be forty in five years whether I had a degree or not; may as well get the degree.
I don’t think I am anything special or that I am smarter than anyone either. In fact, I thought I was dumb most of my life. I think I am an average everyday woman who has had plenty of obstacles to overcome, trials, and some tribulations along the way. I still haven’t “made it.”
These are some of the things I write about in my blog! To find out a little bit more, take a look at my “About” page!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you come again!
