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.
'You Can't Have Everything. Where would you put it?'
A friend once asked me to do a calligraphy of that quote for her parents. I never got around to it, but the quote stuck with me. I just Googled it, and Steven Wright gets the credit.
And now I'm the one who needs to hear it. I think I'm dangerously close to having everything, and I'm getting more and more flummoxed as to where to put all of it. My new cake pans arrived today (my cake co-conspirator agreed that we should do square layers, but she didn't have square pans, so it seemed like a good excuse to me for spending money) and there simply isn't a suitable spot for them.
Happily, I have just the right spot to put one even larger item -- my tired body. Good nighzzzzzzzzzzzz!
