12/17/09 - I'm still alive.
After all those months of hormone therapy hell, I never did have the surgery. My DIL's mom was killed in a car accident in Sept. [8 months after her father was killed in one, not 10 miles from the same spot] being that I'm the last grandparent standing I canceled the surgery.
It's been one heck of a year and I've seemed too have misplaced my urge to draw/craft/whatever.
I do miss all my friends here. I don't even know who's left. If you're on Facebook, look me up - Nancy Hale in Reno Nevada.
9/12/09 - This is taking a lot longer than I thought :( Thank you all who have left me notes, they mean a lot. I seem to have lost my self and don't know where to find her.
I'm going to be out of commision for a few months, long story. SORRY. If I owe you something or you haven't received something please send me a p.m.]

As far as labels go, I'm Christian,a single parent, divorced, happy, live in Reno Nevada, USA. I adore my four children, grandson, sisters and mother. Family is very important to me. Most of my children are grown; my youngest is 16, the rest are adults. My grandson is 5 and completely adorable, especially when he's naughty. He tells me I'm the best girl in the whole wide world, and I tend to think the same about him. I take care of him while his mom is at work, so we get to spend a lot of time together. I work from home as a computer tech. I work odd hours/long hours [96 a week] and sometimes go a little mad for want of a few minutes to myself. Crafting helps, reading helps too. I lost 47 pounds on Weight Watchers in the begining of the year, it's a great program.
Bible. Night by Elie Wiesel. The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls. Franny and Zooey by J.D. Salinger. A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius by Dave Eggers. I don't read a lot of fantasy or science fiction, but I have in the past. I love Christian fiction, all types. I like travel writting [why do they call it that?], like Driving over Lemons. I like books. :) Also, I home school my teenager [10th grade] so I read a lot of classics [to make sure he really read them]
Amazing Grace. Bubble Toes by Jack Johnson. old rock. Don't Know Why by Nora Jones. I don't like rap and techno...
Altering Journals. Altering Books. Scrap booking. writing, short stories and poems. blogging. ATC, drawing, painting. Getting my hands dirty.
I love blues and greens, browns and light pink... rich earthy colors; but, I also like hot pink and orange together. I'm not much into cutsy stuff, but sometimes something like that will catch my fancy.
I don't watch too much television, it's mainly on children's shows for my grandson. But I do take over the tv when LOST is on. I like documentries, travel channel shows, history channel shows.
I have some weird allergies! I am allergic to tea and nutmeg... My kids love tea so if you really want to send some send away. I am also allergic to cats and dogs, but a stray cat hair or two won't hurt me so don't worry over it at all. I'm also 'allergic' to lima beans, hominy, blind dates, ferocious tickling, rude drivers and monotonous conversations :)
