The farthest I've been from home:

Not very, just Florida a few times and Vegas a couple of times. Would love to at least have the opportunity one time to leave the country, but don't see that happening any time soon.

My favorite type(s) of music:

I Love the oldies - they have just stayed true to my heart. My daughter's middle name is even Taylor, named after James Taylor. I was 5 months pregnant with her when we went to see him in concert. We already knew that her first name was going to be Tarja (pronounced Tarea) so Taylor just happened to fit very well.


Well, I suppose the story of what I've been doing since High School actually started in High School. I was married during our Senior year and had my daughter before Graduation. (see pic below) She was 2 weeks old and got to see Mom Graduate from High School in Cap & Gown. Then very shortly after having my son Jeremy, my marriage came to an end. I remained single for the next 12 years and during that time had gone back to school and got my Marketing Degree from Gateway. I started working at Motorola in 1992 which is where I met my second husband Bob. Our divorce became final on Nov 4th 2010 and I think I will stay single this time. We had our son Travis in 1993. When Motorola decided to relocate people from their Libertyvile Plant out to the new Plant in Harvard, IL we took advantage of the opportunity to leave Kenosha and moved West to the little booming town of Pell Lake, WI. I absolutely love it out here. Very quiet !! After being out here for just 5 years Motorola decided to close their doors and laid off hundreds of people including myself. At the time I was pregnant with my youngest daughter. I decided to go back to school for Graphic Design and attended Gateway in Elkhorn for the first 2 years of my daughters life. I found it a blessing to be able to be home with her most of the time. I worked for 4 years in Design / Sales out in the even more booming town of Sharon, WI. at a Truss Plant, but unfortunately due to the economy the Truss Plant closed in Aug 2008. I am now working at Wal-Mart in Lake Geneva until I can hopefully find a job more in my field.
My oldest daughter Jennifer, was married in April 2008. She has given me 4 wonderful Granddaughters in the last 11 years. My son Jeremy, was married on Oct 1st, 2009. And they now have a little boy. My 2 yougest kids are both still at home, my son is Travis he's 19 and works at the Grand Geneva Resort in Lake Geneva and also attends College at Blackhawk in Beloit. He's a really good kid, but very busy. My yougest is Tarja, she's 10 now and in 4th grade, she is my little blonde angel (or how I like to refer to her as a Devil in disguise). She is pretty head strong and very opinionated. she was wrestling for a while but now enjoys track and cross country running.

School Story:

I was pretty quiet all through school. I guess one thing that does stand out in my mind though was from 9th grade at Washington. It was the Field Trip that we took to George Wiliams College for 3 days. I didn't really ever spend the night at friends houses very often, so this was a fantastic thing for me to be away from home for a couple of nights with No parents. My roomies in our cabin were: Terry Baronsky, Annette Jakovec, and Tammy Seleski. We had an absolute blast.
