Who is Harlie Williams?

Who is Harlie Williams?  Boy that is a loaded question, don't you think?  I would say that I'm a daughter, sister, niece, cousin, mother, wife but that sounds a bit boring doesn't it?  Or I could lie and say that I'm a former Broadway dancer now living out her days in a small East Texas town wishing that she could still dance.  :)

Seriously, though.  I am all of the above except for the Broadway dancer part.  I grew up wanting to be a Broadway dancer but I was deemed too short for the chorus line.  I didn't make the cut for the Kilgore Rangerettes because of my height.  I was an inch too short.  :(  But I digress...

Here's the skinny on me:  I'm 46 years old, married for almost 9 years, 8 year old son and lives in Lindale, Texas.  I was born in the great state of Oklahoma (Boomer Sooner) and raised in Dallas, Texas.  I'm a major sports junkie.  Baseball is my lover and hockey is my mistress.  Sports teams that I'm loyal to are the Texas Rangers, Houston Astros, Houston Texans, Oklahoma Sooners, Texas Aggies, Dallas Stars and no one messes with Dale Earnhardt, Jr.  They will have to answer to me.  :)  I live for Saturdays in the fall for college football.  Oh and I used to work for the Dallas Stars, too.  I saw them win the Stanley Cup and then lose it, too.  I will say this about New Jersey Devils fans, they were a blast and I have never been more proud to be a Stars fan when we lost the Cup on our ice.  The Stars fans were nice, bought Devils fans drinks and there were no hard feelings.  Maybe in another post I'll share stories of those years working for them.  *sigh*

I worked in corporate Dallas for 25 years with IBM, JC Penney women's buying office, and finally with a bank where I meet my husband.  I don't work outside the home anymore.  Don't miss the office politics and shenanigans but do miss the people and my friends that I made.  I do miss the extra income, just not time away from our son.  I missed so much in his life because of me working and I will not do it again. 

So that is a short bio on Harlie Williams.  I don't live that much of an exciting life.  I love my family, sports and have an addiction to all things related to Star Wars.  But that's for another time.  :)
