About Me

I'm a wife and working mother (Aren't we all?) of 3. I've been married since 1993 and have seen the inside and out of "for better or for worse." But we're still at it. I was born and raised in the Midwest and am raising my family in the great state of Indiana, where we have considerably more than corn, soybeans and race cars.

I am a good Catholic girl, which means I've got guilt -- feeling it and dishing it -- down to a science. I've been a "woman of size" since I was 9 years old, though my weight tends to fluctuate depending on my willpower, discipline to exercise and how many good shows are on television. If I could only eat one food for the rest of my life, it would be ice cream.

I've been blogging since July 2008 and am a regular contributor to several other blogs (see the links on my home page). I love Facebook and have a fleeting admiration for Twitter.


How I became the 4th Frog

I decided to start blogging in June 2008. But several weeks went by and the blog was still a figment of my imagination because I was stuck on what to call it. Then my husband told me this riddle:

Four frogs were sitting on a log. Three decided they were going to jump off. How many were left?

All four. Three frogs said they were jumping, but no one took any action.


I decided I wanted to be the one that jumped. So I became the 4th Frog.
