I grew up in: Massachusetts, and have only lived in MA and RI. I was born during the years when I Love Lucy debuted and was all the rage. I still love the reruns.
Childhood memory: At my 3rd birthday party, my (2) brothers, who were 9 and 11 years older than me, got into a pushing fight and one pushed the other aganist a kitchen window, breaking the glass.
Bullies: I had a mean best friend from grades 1- 5. Time spent at the bus stop before and after school was especially painful. I finally got enough courage to dump her and find a new best friend.
Teen years: That was a long time ago considering I graduated from high school in the early 70's, but I would say my teen years were average. I went to basketball, hockey and football games with friends, a few parties (but I was really not a party girl). I adored a high school English teacher that I was lucky enough to have two years in a row. My first marriage was at the young age of 19.5 years old, not because we had to get married, but because I wanted a home of my own more than college at the time. (2) children and a college degree came later.
Favorite color: Blue, but actually I like so many colors, except pea green and mustard color.
Travel: France, Switzerland, Canada, Mexico, Bahamas (2x) and Aruba (10x). I've also visited about 30 US states.
Regrets: I only wish that I had learned to enjoy exercise at an early age. Sadly, I hated PE all through school, and have struggled with exercise, seeing it as being an unpleasant thing ever since.
Future plans: I'm hoping I can enjoy continued good health, retire at age 62, spend more time with my children, travel a bit and just read all of those books I've hoarded over the years.
