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.
I've been needing a new desk chair for ages now. I've looked, dawdled, bought and returned something, researched some more, still hadn't resolved the problem. Then this morning one of the arms just fell off my chair. Amazing how quickly I was able to decide what I wanted and place an order! Ordered a new desk, too, while I was at it -- one I'd been eyeing for a couple years now. I hate purchasing expensive items, but there comes a time when you have to just do it.

But when you have a really good excuse to do it, to get what you need and maybe browse a bit while you're there, that I don't mind. I never much liked garage sales and don't normally spend time doing it. But yesterday I passed a sale at the end of my morning walk/run, and decided to have a look. Well, I picked up a food dehydrator for about four bucks-- and it's almost new. I've been eyeballing those for years, but hated to spend the money. Now I can dry my own fruit for Rich's granola and for muffins and scones! Got some plastic food storage containers too, including one for pie. I love it when you get what you need!~Eleanor
