Who I Am and Why I’m Here

Who I Am…

I’m a married fifty-something although it seems like I should only be 28 years old. I have four dogs and I have worked in rescue for almost 10 years. I have a part-time job at the community college and love working with the students as an academic advisor. I have three younger sisters and am very fortunate that both my parents are still alive and are in reasonably good health. I live in Central Nebraska and love it, except when I’m missing my family since all of them live in other states. I love to read and knit and I watch way too much TV.

Why I’m Here…

I plan to write about my dogs and experiences with rescue. That is what makes my heart sing! Unfortunately, I have yet to find a way to make that pay…dogs seem to cost money, not make it.

I love love, love to knit especially when I’m at home and have at least one dog by my side, snoozing away. So you’ll probably read about that, as well as books I’ve read and love, food I’ve eaten that is yummy, and other tidbits of my life.

I’ll probably write something controversial now and then, because some issues are just too important to me and I just can’t stay quiet. I don’t expect that I’ll change anyone’s opinion, but maybe writing about it will keep my head from exploding.

And I’ll write about reclaiming my life while living with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Hence the blog title. I hope that by sharing my experience, strength and hope someone may be able to reclaim their life, too. Not that I’m done doing that.

If you haven’t guessed it yet, my thoughts tend to flit around faster than a squirrel. So, if you are up for my ramblings, I’d love to hear from you. Oh look! There goes a squirrel!
