It had been on my mind for quite some time to become a blogger (as if I don’t have enough to keep me busy). I have loved writing ever since I was six years old, and I was given a little red diary with a little Scottish dog on the front, and the combination lock that spelled out “my diary”. My combination was m-d-r.

     Of course, I later learned a good hard yank would do the trick just as well… but despite the fact that my little sisters were constantly looking to my little red book for juicy bits of gossip to use as bargaining chips in the battles of growing up, I continued to write down my take on life and chance their finding the perfect ammunition. By the time I finished high school I had filled a dozen journals and just as many binders of poetry, short stories, songs, and bits of pieces of a couple of novels.

     Now days I mostly write silly things about my family- especially my bright-eyed blonde teenager because she keeps us all laughing, but really, everyone in our house contributes to the hilarity of our situation. So, when my Facebook status prompted my mother to comment “really, write a book” I decided it was time…

So here I am, and now, I guess, I’m a blogger! 

In 2012, our story took a drastic turn when we officially adopted 4 more children, and turned our already chaotic life into a zoo. Follow along as we try to raise 7 kids, all with some combination or form of ADD/ADHD/ODD/OCD/PTSD or depression. They play sports, actively participate in many activities, and face normal kids issues like boyfriends, pimples, and broken hearts. We do our best to hold it all together in our tiny little house that is bursting at the seams… And in 2015 we added a grandbaby. Once you get to be magical (grandparents) life is never the same again!

  1. Welcome to the bloggersphere.I’ve always been a writer since a child.I was always good with poetry also so we should be naturals at blogging.Only difference is:you blog about rosy/peachy things while I mostly blog about what I do:coach men how to pick up women and be social with women(according to the underground-seduction community philosophy).

  2. Sounds like me! I always loved writing…usually just jotting my thoughts into a few paragraphs. Now that I am a mommy…working one at that…there has to be an outlet for my thoughts and ideas and…well anything that fits the moment. I love your writings and look forward to reading more! =)

    And Happy New Year!!

  3. Funny thing,when I first started to blog,I felt as though I was talking to myself lol.I actuall quit on my blog where I didn’t write a post in like 4 months.Miraculously,I got bacc into it few months ago and never stopped since.

  4. Hi Blondie, thank you for subscribing to my blog i’ll call back soon and take another look.

    You should insert the ” read more ” tab into the posts after the first two paragraphs, because they are very long and people don’t like to scroll forever.

    Plus when its clicked you get a hit for it.

    Hope you don’t mind the advice.

  5. Very awesome. I think that blogging is way easier than pen and paper … I don’t know … but it is just fun to write your thoughts out. Do you ever find you have more ideas than you can get down?? I know I do. It was great chatting with you out in the blog-o-sphere! 😀 Happy wife’s club!

  6. In the “better late than never” category, please accept my congratulations on your remarkable entry in Dark Globe’s photo contest. Judging was a very difficult job and I’m just happy your work was enjoyed by many, many people.


  7. Thank you Blondie for being brave enough to follow NakedBokkie’s lead and click my link. I appreciate that you are now a follower and I too am enjoying your blog. Are you considering taking part in the 30 Days as well? Enjoy your weekend.

  8. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and stories via blog. I always wanted to be a writer, too, but the thing is that I LIKE to write too much to be a writer. I’m afraid that if I HAD to write, then the enjoyment of it would be taken away, so I choose to blog instead. I don’t get any money from it, but there’s more potential to make friends and to interact with your readers. Enjoy your new writing life!

Surely, after reading all of this, you have at least one thing to say!
