At last I've braved the depths of my technical ineptitude, and here is my first post. (Please forgive the sloppiness!)
Here's the cliff notes of the last 18 years:
Moved to the Kansas City metro in 1990; Started working for KC's electricity monopoly in 1991; spent about 4 years in the now disbanded "Renegade Theater Company" in Lawrence KS, doing sketch comedy shows & original dramas, had a blast; then had a baby, and the acting came to a screeching halt. Tristan is now 12, and was a good trade for my acting hobby. Finally realized that husband #1 was a narcissistic control freak, and moved on to greener pastures in 1997. Met wonderful Jack, my friendly neighborhood pharmacist in 1999, and we got married in 2000. My job at KCPL evolved into a dream of event planning, internal employee communications, and even skit writing & production. Skits? In a stodgy utility? It was a good gig, but when Quinn was born in 2003, I fell out of love with my job. In 2004 I quit earning a paycheck, and now I work for the Mighty Quinn.
I have so enjoyed reading this blog, and seeing pictures of all these familiar faces. I'm stunned how gently you have all aged! I've thought of you all over the years, and it's so nice even to see your names again. Takes me back to the fun SU days....oh so long ago!
Jack, me, Tristan & Quinn at SeaWorld in January '08. This was their birthday trip; Tristan turning 12, Quinn turning 5.
Tristan with Sophie, our 105 lb. Rottie (lap dog). Quinn with his best friend Izzy, our chubby kitty.
More tales of of my domestic endeavors & adventures in Oz will hopefully follow....when the call of duty allows me to take a break!
Until later, your truly from the Kansas suburbs,
