Elizabeth White

46, widow, mother, jack of all trades & master of none.

I write about My Life, Such as it is...including family,  PTO, Cub Scouts, and whatever else I can think of.

I have a son who is9 years old and in 3rd grade.. I'm PTO President and my husband was Cubmaster of Charlie's Pack, now I am Cubmaster. I'm an avid reader,  love to travel, and I'm sorta crafty. We have 2 dogs, Ruby and Max. They are an interesting pair, providing lots of entertainment and blog fodder.
