10 Things I Am Not

In order to give you a little more insight into who I am, let me tell you 10 things I am not:

  1. Svelte.  Isn’t that a great word?
  2. Consistent.  I try, but I have my ups and downs.
  3. Brilliant.  I have always wanted to be, but it’s a little late for that to happen.
  4. Chef.  On a good day I make 3 meals.  On a great day I really enjoy doing it.
  5. Interior Decorator.  If you want to know what color is in, don’t check here.
  6. Fashion Maven.  See number 5.
  7. Coupon Clipper Extraordinaire.  I believe in store brands.
  8. Only Child.  I have 5 siblings that I really love.  I need to tell them that more often.
  9. Lonely.  I am so grateful for my partner in this life and the children and friends that have graced my life.
  10. Asleep.  It’s 1:10am and I am up trying to create a blog.

10 Things I Am

So that you can get to know me, let me tell you 10 things I am:

  1. Woman.  Hence the blog name, One Common Woman.
  2. Wife.  Married to one fabulously ordinary man.
  3. Mother.  Mother of 5, ages 17 to 31.
  4. Grandmother.  I have 4 extraordinary Grand Daughters!
  5. 55.
  6. Gray-haired.  Pretty much.  A little reddish brown left in the front.
  7. Common.  I have my ups, I have my downs, the good, the bad, the lovely, the ugly.
  8. 5′ 9″
  9. Thankful.  To be who I am, where I am.
  10. Dreamer.   I still want my voice to be heard, common as I am.
