Hi all!
Years ago, my friends labeled me a diehard multi-tasker. I think it's a very accurate description. It seems that there are so many things that I want to do, combined with all the things I have to do, that multi-tasking is necessary just for me to try to keep up with myself.

A little more about my background: I graduated from college with a degree in Business Management and Marketing. I've worked in a variety of fields since. I first started working for Federated Department Stores in Florida and was a women's shoe department manager. I left there and started working for Merrill Lynch in NYCity, and got a pretty good background in financial management. I then moved to Hilton Head, SC (had to get out of the cold and snow) and got involved in Food and Beverage - specifically the restaurant business. I owned a restaurant for a short time (not recommended if you wish to stay sane). I also worked part-time for a few years for a printing and sign shop where I got some graphic design background.
While doing all these things, I bought my own homes and/or investment properties to remodel. I loved making neglected houses look young again especially if they had good architectural bones and historical charm. But now that my own house is restored - and the real estate market is not in a happy state, I've decided to expand may computer knowledge, while writing and learning more about many other things I enjoy. I'm hoping that eventually that will allow me to work less (and maybe eventually not at all) in the restaurant business.
As I lost my mother to cancer at a young age, I am very conscious of taking care of my health and so am very into fitness and maintaining a healthy diet, and am constantly researching what foods are the most beneficial. I enjoy finding and experimenting with new, healthy recipes, and am committed to having a good fitness regime as well. I strongly believe that healthy eating combined with exercise and strength training are of utmost importance for good healthe, and literally anti-aging.
I have 2 cats, who are essentially my children. They keep me entertained with their antics and shower me with unconditional love.
I love gardening and landscaping - and bike riding. They are stress reducing activities for me.
I am active in squidoo.com and have several lens there - health-related, home-related, and other varied topics that I come across that interest me, and challenge me to explore further. For example, one is http://www.squidoo.com/lugols-iodine-solution. Another is http://www.squidoo.com/health-benefits-of-garlic. also, http://www.squidoo.com/healthy-fruit-smoothie-recipes.
And at another end of the spectrum, but actually one of my personal favorite lenses is http://www.squidoo.com/craftsman-bungalow-houses.

There are not enough hours in the day for all the things I would like to do (maybe if I didn't have to work) - but one of my goals is to enjoy my life to the fullest - staying busy doing things I like to do.
