Nancy is Norwegian and therefore lives comfortably in Minnesota, Land of Uffda. Her husband and kids still kind of like her, despite her tendency to be distracted by shiny objects. Her body gave up on her years ago, and her mind decided to do the same. But she still thinks she’s funny, as long as she hangs out with people who laugh easily. You won’t see her name in the same sentence as “appropriate” and “rule-follower,” but she knows her manners and occasionally uses them. Nancy’s life would not be complete without her faith, family and friends … and soft blankets, stretchy pants, chocolate milk and crossword puzzles. To know her is to, uh … wonder how she got that way.
