I named my blog I Know EVERYTHING – just ask my hubby because many times when my husband and I had a conversation he would look at me and says “well of course, you know everything”. This blog is about life, family, parenting, tech and more. Pretty much anything. It’s cheaper than therapy. The header actually used to say “it’s cheaper than therapy”.


This is me.


This is me when I weighed just under 374 pounds. Obviously before I had Lap band surgery.

My name is Valerie, but I go by valmg online.
I married young and have stayed married for over twenty years. RB is my hubby.
I am a mother to 2 boys – TJ, a 17 year old, and CJ, a 13 year old with Down Syndrome.
I am a daughter to two wonderful parents who go above and beyond.
My Mom blogs too, she’s Pat. over at Here And There.
I have three younger brothers, all of whom have children.

I am a Jersey girl. I was born here and have lived here all of my life except for two years spent in hell New Hampshire.

I HATE the misuse of the word retarded. I take it personally and find it very offensive.

I am an active member of three PTAs/PTOs.

I am the founder of an area Down Syndrome support group.

I have organized a Special Olympics program for my area.

I spent more than ten years in sales in a call center for an international mail order computer products company. I still work but haven’t been in that field for a couple of years now and I don’t miss it at all.

Two things I would be miserable without – Sirius Satellite and my DVR.

I’m a cat lover. Especially Himalayan cats. I’m very partial to the Seal Point Himalayan, although they’re all beautiful. My avatar on many sites is a pair of cats I had a while back.

I watch Nascar Nextel Cup racing. I cheered for Rusty until he retired and now I still cheer for the #22 #2 (Kurt Busch). I also like the #1 #26 (Jamie McMurray). I do not like the 24 or 48. I have a bumper sticker on my car that says “Anybody but Gordon”. Learn it. Live it. Love it.

I am a picky eater. I love coffee and cheesecake.

I love music. Lots of different stuff, but mainly rock.
My favorite bands are Oleander, Hinder, Rev Theory and Papa Roach. Other favorites include Motley Crue, AC/DC.

I love to read.
Some favorite authors are JK Rowling, Piers Anthony, Jonathan Kellerman, Faye Kellerman, Patricia Cornwall and VC Andrews.

Television I am currently watching includes ABC soaps, Law & Order, Law & Order CI, Law & Order SVU, Big Love, Gossip Girl, Two and a Half Men, Burn Notice, Royal Pains, Dead Zone, ER, Til Death, Pushing Daisies, Dirty Sexy Money, Friends, Will and Grace, Everybody Loves Raymond, Happy Hour, Seinfeld, Sex In The City, Kidnapped, Vanished, The West Wing, The Sopranos, Seventh Heaven, Starter Wife, Beverly Hills 90210, original Melrose Place. Please notice that most of the tv shows I really enjoy end up canceled. Just thought I should warn you.

As it turns out, blogging is also a great way to keep family and friends that are far away up to date. It’s also a great way to make new friends and learn about new things.

As it also turns out, I really love blogging. I guess I have a lot to say. LOL.
