If you are trying to get information about Tea Party Patriots, please go to http://support.teapartypatriots.org/customer/portal/emails/new for a more timely response than commenting on this blog.  Thanks!

After meeting my future husband, Mr. Right, in college, we became fast friends.  Eventually, that friendship turned into love.  In October 2008 we celebrated our 16th wedding anniversary.

In 2001, I left my full-time job as a computer programmer turned project manager, to stay at home.  I increased my volunteer involvement in the community, helped Mr. Right with his burgeoning business, and began fertility treatments.  The fertility treatments paid off, and we have now have our adorable twins, who were born in 2003.

Politics is my passion.  I was actively involved in the Republican Party on the county, district, and state levels for many years.  I have served as a volunteer on many campaigns.  Currently, I am one of the National Coordinators for Tea Party Patriots and one of the Co-Coordinators for the Atlanta Tea Party.  Tea Party Patriots has truly taken over our lives.  We are working to reclaim America’s founding principles.  I do not blog as much as I used to because I am so involved with Tea Party Patriots.

In 2008, I began getting paid for my political consulting services for the first time.  From 1992 until July, 2007, I volunteered my time and services.  It was nice to earn money for something I love to do so much.

Since I had been a full-time volunteer and mother for 6 years, now trying to juggle a job while taking care of the children, keeping up with the household chores, and continuing to volunteer at some level was a bit of a challenge.  Fortunately, with my husband’s help, I got into the swing of this new routine and it seems to be working well.

When I am not taking care of the house, the children, or politics, I volunteer in my community.  Some of my volunteer activities have included:  Junior Service League, Mothers of Multiples Club, PTA, Habitat for Humanity, Hands on Atlanta, church.  My parents instilled a sense of community and volunteerism in me and I cannot imagine my life without volunteering in one way or another.

In my spare time, I like to read, scrapbook, & watch tv.  I aspire to digiscrap but am not there yet.  Creating Keepsakes puts on some fabulous conventions and I have been to 2 of these and one CKU.  Mr. Right and I have had tivo since 2000 and we would give up the microwave before we give up our tivo boxes.  While reading political books and blogs is a good way to become informed and I read a lot of those, I also enjoy reading light fiction that I can pick up and put down quickly as called for by the more important demands of life.

I have been blogging for a couple of years and really enjoy it.  Please feel free to let me know your thoughts about the site so that I can improve it as I go.  Thanks!

    I have 4 kids, and our oldest are are fraternal twins (girls)…they are 14 years old now. I love to scrapbook, too but it’s hard to find the time!
    I live in Snellville, and I’m guessing you live in Gwinnett too!
