The Tromp Queen

Why is my blog called “The Tromp Queen?”
My facebook status from Jan 31 tells the whole story:

This morning I couldn’t find my glasses or my music. After searching upstairs and out in the cars, I managed to find both. Then after getting in the car (5 degrees, windchill of who knows what but it must have been below zero) I discovered I had no keys. Tromped back into the house. Got the keys. Drove to the bank. Got nearly there and realized I had no purse. Back to the house. Tromped into the house again. Got my purse. Aarrgghhh. ¬†(14 people “liked” this.)

  • ¬†Me: ¬†The day went uphill from there, though. I helped a neighbor, had my book study group at Badger Brothers, had rehearsals with the choirs, then had a long lunch and meeting. Lots of good conversation, good friends, good music, good coffee and good food! ¬†(Two people liked this).
