Update: September 1, 2016

Julie is my first name. My handle is a combination of every initial I have had with my birth year tagged on the end - 3 last names due to 2 marriages.

What do you like to do for fun? Play free games (majhongg, slots, solitaire, and bingo) on the computer, travel, go camping, shop at farmer's/flea markets

I am not on a particular diet. I try to do lots of veggies (hard when no one else wants them), fruits, chicken, fish, and whole grain pastas and bread when I indulge, which is rare. I'm lactose intolerant and just discovered that Breyers has a lactose-free vanilla ice cream, so I allow myself a little of an evening topped with frozen fruit.

To recharge, I like nothing better than to go camping in mountains/forests in a tent. I am also an avid music lover and am a volunteer treasurer at a concert association, which gives me the opportunity to go to lots of concerts.

I am a recent QuickBooks Online Pro Advisor graduate, looking to get certified in all the desktop versions as well. My start-up business is bookkeeping and financial technology consultant. I hope to have enough clients to hire some staff and get a real office soon. I have also been the live-in caretaker for my 88-yr-old father-in-law for the past 8 weeks due to a fall that broke his pelvis. Looks like it will be xmas before I can give up that gig as there are plans for 2 surgeries.
