I grew up on the Jersey Shore. I%u2019ve been married, divorced and remarried. I had three children with my first husband, two more and a step son with my second. I have two grandchildren living in America and three living in Norway. I have lived in Houston and the Netherlands. I am now living on a small island located off the southwest coast of Norway. My life has been affected by autism. I have two King Charles Spanials%u2019 named Mia and Khloe. I enjoy scrapbooking. I don%u2019t like watching sports. I loyally read People magazine every week. I like going to the movies. I force myself to the gym. And I love curling up with a good book and a cup of tea... Oh, yeah and I wrote a memoir called Fly Away Home. These are just a few of the things I%u2019ll be discussing in my blog, I guess you could call it%u2026 The Unedited Sequel.
