Valerie is a 42-year-old, single, Reformed Christian lady who lives in Baltimore. She doesn't remember a time
before she knew and loved Jesus, but she does remember accepting John Calvin into her heart in March of 2000.
Valerie is a member of Christ Reformed Evangelical Church in Annapolis.
Though her career aspiration is to be a housewife, Valerie has not yet found anyone suitable who wishes to hire
her for employment in that field (or, more properly, anyone suitable has not found her), so in the meantime she
earns her daily bread working in communications -- editing, writing, print design and website management.
Of course if I'd done what I was supposed to have done tonight, and looked through real estate listings, I might be a step closer to getting a new kitchen....

I always bemoaned the fact that I wanted a Kitchenaid mixer, but wasn't willing to haul it out every time I wanted to use it, so I always said, "It'll have to wait until I have a bigger kitchen. Meanwhile, I'll just stick with my lighter Sunbeam."
Well, about a year and a half ago, the old Sunbeam died. I decided to bite the bullet and find a place to put the Kitchenaid on the countertop (which meant exiling the bread machine.) So I purchased the Kitchenaid, and never regretted it.
Especially when, three months later, we got an almost-unsolicited cash offer for our house. ;-)
The name it and claim it people could really make hay of that story. ;-)
