“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undeatable.”– Helen Keller

My life has been full of adventures….here are a few.

Having 3 brothers and 3 sisters.

Growing up in a house with 1 bathroom and 9 people to use it.

A father that taught at the same high school you attended.

Working the candy stand at the RKO(Rotten Krummy Old) movie theater

Moving to Minnesota from Iowa and starting my first “real” job.

Learning to drive on a freeway in a canary yellow Pinto.

Meeting Harold Spooner, getting married to him and then 5 yrs later divorcing him.

Living by myself for the first time…with no siblings, roommates, or husband. Liked it.

Working in the operating room at old St. Lukes that became United Hospital.

Met and married my work buddy…Clyde Warner…he was a living adventure!

Parenting…an adventure not for the weak of heart!  a never ending adventure.

Living in Texas for 5 years… Yall come back now ya hear….I don’t think so.

Burying my husband and the father of my kids.

Single parenting.

Parenting a troubled teen…could work for the FBI, KGB, and Secret Service.

Moving and living in Florence, Italy.

Living in another culture.

Relocating to Chicago from Italy with an unhappy 16 yr old daughter.

Being a 57 yr old single woman breaking into the dating game..or attempting lol

Being a mother of adult kids.

These are just a few adventures of my insane delicious life. We all have a boat load  of adventures to remember and to create. So when your life feels a little dull…go on your own walk down memory lane and recall some adventures you have had and conquered.
