Renee Pike

I'm a wife, friend, companion, sister, daughter and a dog mom. My life according to me is crazy, wonderful, mysterious, but most of all fun. I use to love talking politics now I hate it. The middle ground is gone. I'm a novice knitter, painter, artist & acoustic guitar player. I love ROCKBAND. I also love to read but I can never find the time to sit down and read a book. I long to learn a second language but again its a time thing. I love walking the dogs no matter what the weather is. And I miss my big dog Schultzy every single day. Hanging out on the deck in the summertime is my favorite pass time with Geeeoff. Our long conversations about music, artist, guitarist, country, rock, blues all of it has been the foundation of a long and lasting love affair. Mostly I'm a lunatic who loves to make everyone around her laugh including herself.

He was working different hours back then and on weekends. I was doing the 8 to 5 grind with weekends off. Our down time was always spent without each other. ...more

Pen Vs. Computer

Recently I stumbled across multiple journals that I had written from the age of 15 - 21. I was such a tortured soul. Or so I thought. Its funny to read about all my teenage angst and drama. If I ever had the opportunity to chat with my teenage self I would tell her to lighten up!!!   Read More Here: http://www.thereneechronicles.com/2011/11/pen-vs-computer.html...more
