About Me…

Welcome!! I’m glad you’re here!

Some things about me:

I am a Christ-follower.  I’m thankful that God is with me through everything and loves me no matter what.  He loves you too!

I am married and a mom of one son and two stepdaughters, all adults now.  (When did that happen?!) Also, I am a new Nana to a baby boy due in July, 2023!

I plan to thru-hike the Pacific Crest Trail in 2022. (Edit: We went, Marnie hurt her back, change in plans — see here and here. Well, and then here.)

I am a legal transcriptionist.  I often talk back to the recording when I don’t like what someone is saying. To date, my favorite thing I have typed was a witness saying, when he was finished testifying, “Am I cleared for takeoff, Your Majesty?” to the judge. There was also that one time when the defendant told the DA he looked like Frankenstein… 😁

I sell vintage things on Etsy, because I like vintage things and I like going to garage sales and estate sales to find vintage things. Feel free to visit my Etsy store, Little Miss Jackie’s, and buy many things!

I like hiking, social media, and old television shows and movies. And donuts.

I always read detailed reviews of a movie before I watch it.  I don’t want to be surprised.

I have a natural knowledge of language, spelling, grammar, and punctuation.

I have a sweet tooth.

I don’t enjoy cooking.

  1. Thank you for your article, “When your loved one lives with BiPolar Disorder, so do you” I was dx in Oct 2007 (at 37) and my family (mostly mother and sister) had a really hard time accepting it, so have I really. Your article really got to me because these are the same things (except for the spending, I have not had to deal with that, thank goodness) I have tried to get my mother to understand, even before I was dx. I am going to send her a copy. Maybe it will help her grasp things better since there is so much in your article that we have discussed, and to see that it’s not just me that is affected in this way. Thank you so very much. Take care and have a wonderful day.


  2. You sound like my type of person. Sign me up! I work with somebody with bipolar disorder and we get on swimmingly.

    We all wish we were more clever than we think we are… and usually are. (huh?)

    I am 10 – 15# overweight. Darned middle agedness! (I just now ate 3 snack size Hershey bars)

    I dispise exercise! I also have bad feet. That’s my excuse for not exercising.

    I am a Christian and my older brother fancies himself Buddhist. I love him.

    This wasn’t supposed to be a blog post.



  3. Thanks for stopping by my scattered mind. I love your “about me” info. I always tell my friends that God knows what he’s doing by keeping me overweight … He knows I’ll be dressing slutty if I lost my weight! Yum, See’s candy … one of my favorites also! It’s a good thing the nearest store is 50 miles away!


  4. Well, here we are in late July. Where did the first half of the year go? I like your blog. And I like your reply to my blog regarding how to manage my 6 mo old pup when he can open the door to my office and cause havoc with garbage. Putting a hook up higher on the door is an excellent suggestion! I smiled when you said it might be a safety issue … and I pictured my husband locking me in.

    May you feel God’s heart within yours always.


  5. I really loved your pictures of the abandoned slaughter house in the central valley. Its completely covered with new artwork now.


  6. I have the same frog cup. I would drink milk from it at my grandparents’ house in NJ in the 80s and I inherited it a few years ago. Same frog, likely the same artist.


  7. Hey, can you tell me the age of the frog surprise mug? Mine is hitting its fourth generation: grandma > mom > me > my daughters. I know we had it by about 1985 but think it’s older than that. It’s a little lighter and smaller than a typical mug, is plain white on the outside, and doesn’t have a single marking on it. It’s exactly the same as yours.
