okay, so

beckylevine  passed on the honest scrap award to me and a few of her other friends. I think being an honest writer is one the most important things we can do for our readers. 

Hmmm….here are a few honest scraps about me.

I never understood what anyone else saw in the Seinfeld show.

I probably buy way too many things on Ebay.

I have a serious problem with delayed gratification.


I always assume the best about everyone else and the worst about myself. This creates numerous problems as you can imagine,
especially with my own self-image.

When I was in my 20s and 30s I had a lot of fears. I mean A LOT. I was terrified of being home alone at night which was made more difficult by the fact that my first husband was gone a lot, hunting, airshows, camping, all sorts of things where he left and I stayed home with the kids. One year my fears were so bad that I slept in the chair in the living room facing the front door (because of course the bad guys would come in the front door) with a loaded gun on my lap.

I am terrified that when I die, no one will come to my funeral.
