There's two dates in time
That they'll carve on your stone
And everyone knows what they mean...
What's more important
Is the time that is known
In that little dash there in between...

We're On The Move
My family and I are walking in the Memory Walk 2008 in honor of my Mom. Our team name is "The Memory Keepers". If anybody is interested in donating to our team effort, please let me know!!!
Welcome to "That Little Dash In Between". I'm not trying to sound morbid, but when you read someone's cemetery headstone, all you see are the dates that they were born and died...you don't have any idea what they did with their time which encompasses "that little dash in between". Here is my way of showing (those of you that are actually interested!!) how I live my life and spend my days. I have never even kept a diary, but I am totally fascinated by the blogosphere out there! So, sit back, grab a coffee or a beer and enjoy the ride! -G
G is a 40-year-old, 3/4 Working Mom, 1/4 SAHM - work 9 months at a local college and have Summers off. Best of both worlds! Married to hubby for 15 years - he is my best friend whom I have known since I was 12! (I have pictures to prove it.) Hubby is a self-employed electrician. Our son, who I refer to here as "Pal", is 12 years old going on 99. He even has the curmudgeon nature of a little old man! But we love him!
I enjoy spending time with family and friends, going to good restaurants, singing, reading, watching TV and camping in my comfy RV. I am hot-blooded and love the Winter (with the exception of all the snow we had this year!). But Fall is definitely my favorite season.
I abhor type-o's, improper grammar and dirty fingernails. My favorite smell is my son after a shower. I am the youngest of 5 kids and my siblings are among my best friends. My Mom passed away in January of 2010 from Alzheimer's Disease and I would love to dedicate my time to raising awareness and finding a cure. Maybe someday I will be able to do that....
