Raised in a very small town, currently living in a larger town in Iowa. “The Anthill” comes from a friend who lives in a much higher elevation who reminded me that “compared to here, it’s an anthill”. True enough, and it’s stuck. I am the “suntanned goddess of the anthill” because of her realizing (and commenting) about the tan I get each summer due to time outside with the kids and an available pool!

Life is not worth it if you can’t laugh at *something* each day…and so far I’ve not found a day that something didn’t strike me as funny!

I’m a wife, a mom, a teacher (now just to my own kids, but formerly to other people’s kids!), a student, and eventually I’ll be queen of the world!! Oh, wait….maybe I won’t…but who knows? If we don’t all die on Dec. 21, 2012, there might be room for me!!!
