About Me

Hi, I'm Sunshine.  Welcome to my blog!  Allow me to present my credentials:


  • I am (in chronological order) a daughter, sister, aunt, wife, and mother.
  • I know a little about a lot of things and a lot about a few things.
  • I'm an excellent listener and a terrible bluffer. 
  • I'm a Whovian. If you don't know what that means, don't worry about it. If you do know what that means, Fantastic!  ;)
  • I'm really good at arithmetic (I'm always the banker/scorekeeper in family games).
  • I got a degree in history but took family science classes as electives. 
  • I speak Spanish, read Latin, and dabble in German. 
  • I prefer sitting-down games to sports. 
  • I love breakfast for dinner, homemade bread, and chocolate without nuts.

If that's not enough to hold your interest, you're free to depart with my heartfelt goodwill.

I'm married to a teacher (Mr. T), and we have one daughter (Sunbeam).  As the eldest of eight siblings, I always dreamed of being the mother of a large family, but after Sunbeam was born, CKD (chronic kidney disease) eliminated the option of future pregnancies for me, so Mr. T and I hope to complete our family through adoption.  

I have been on dialysis since April 2014, and I am waiting for a kidney transplant. I cannot accept live donors, because my kidney failure is caused by a rare autoimmune condition that will also attack my new kidney. 

This blog has yet to really develop, but I intend it to be a place for me share thoughts, feelings, and good ideas.  I hope that it adds a little light to your day.
