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.
Two Weeks Late
I'm two weeks late for my annual bio update. Besides the early gift from my mom, my birthday brought this loot: a new Eileen Goudge book (thanks, Angie!), a Wilton cake turntable (which will get its first workout tomorrow), and a periwinkle shawl (I need to see if I can hunt down a second one from Kohl's). Since it was my interim supervisor's last day (the biggest gift of my natal anniversary), we went out to lunch at Thai Arroy in her honor, but since it's my favorite lunch place, that was more than fine by me! Dessert was a special group-size dish of my favorite mango and sweet sticky rice with candles. Yumm!
And then things got interesting. My new housemate and I had planned to go out to dinner, but she called me that morning to ask if I had a thermometer, and when I called to check in on her after lunch, she was on her way to the hospital. She was there for eight nights, poor thing, with a severe (though entirely treatable) infection. I'm so glad she's better and back in the swing of things. And someday we'll get around to rescheduling my birthday dinner!
