Well, this is supposed to be something about me....

Ok, I'm not that old, but not really young.
I just recently graduated from college, but that doesn't really mean that much either because I started later than normally (What is normal?).
I am married to a Navy sailor, have three step kids, two of them are living with us here in the DC area.
We just bought a house.
I was born in Germany and moved to the US after I got married in 1999.
I have a real cool job, but I'm not gonna tell what it is. Some might not like me for doing what I'm doing, but it's the right thing!
That's it for now.

Feel free to e-mail at
Blogeline at gmaildot com.

I just changed that a little bit since we have actually moved now.
Other than that I don't really know what more to say.
