Get out there and vote!

To see my Journal up there with some of the best and most talented people in J-land is ... truly humbling.  I'm honored and excited.  I'd like to thank all the people who voted for me in the nominations phase, and wish all of the candidates good luck.

Before you make your final decision, let me take this opportunity to show you who I really am... 
Each highlighted word is a link that will take you to an entry that I feel best describes my personality and convictions that may qualify me for the titles of ‘Lady Of The Blog or Best Female Journal,' ‘Most LOL Moments in One Blog’ and ‘The Mad Hatter Award’.  These are the entries that I feel are my best work.  If you put them altogether they add up to my Finest Hour!

I'm a 49 year old DWF from New Jersey.  I live with my other half Ray, in his home.  We found each other on-line two years ago and have been inseparable ever since.  True animal lovers, we have two cats, and a front lawn that is now a natural habitat for chipmunks, squirrels, gophers and a multitude of field mice.  We're in the middle of renovating Ray's house, which has proved to be quite a challenge since it's located directly above the gates of hell.  I am a nurse ... actually one of the Nursing Supervisor's at a large area hospital.  The one you call when you don't like your roommate, your TV doesn't work, or you hate green colored Jell-O.  I have three grown kids, and one small, but adorable grandbaby.  I've spent the past two years battling the Empty Nest Syndrome, menopause, quitting smoking, losing weight and learning to live with the Grand Poobah of all pack rats.  I am actively studying to be a Senior Citizen, and have been blogging since last October.  I also have a Web Site and I'm in the process of writing a book. 

Why?  Because I'm just like
you.   Same values, same struggles, same goals.  A vote for me is a vote for you.

I'm a typical middle-aged, DWF from New Jersey, who hates diets, and has an addiction to  chocolate.  I'm a
do-it-yourselfer, and I can frequently be found enjoying the great outdoors from the safety of my computer screen.  Although I have days when all I can hope for is that I can reach the remote control to the TV if it falls under the bed, I know the secret to happiness! 

I know exactly what I want to do with
my life.  I know where I'm going.  But I’ll never forget where I’ve been. 

I have goals and nothing will get in my way.  I know the meaning of dedication... I’m more than willing to sacrifice my own well-being for the sake of others, or even that of Ray’s, if it comes to that.

I seem to know immediately what's important.

I'm not afraid to ask important questions.

Some people may wonder what kind of scruples I have.  Would I stoop to new levels of lowness to get what I want?  That depends entirely on how you define... low.  

I know how to be politically correct; and I strive to always keep an open mind.  My many years of scientific research have kept me sharp.

My enemies may accuse me of being hormonal.  But I know my limitations; and I know when to slow down.

I'm not afraid of a challenge.  I even have a cause...

But above all else … I'm American!


Now get out there and vote America!  Do it for the Gipper!
Do it for yourselves!  Do it for ME!  Just do it!
