Ramblings of a Reluctant Mom

Who I Am:

I am a writer, roller derby player, chef, reluctant mom, wife, office manager, motorcycle enthusiast, knitter, painter, quilter, loud mouthed, open-minded, stubborn, painter, foodie, blogger, tattoo lover, I can hurt, I can heal, I can be strong, I am weak....

I'm me, and still, I'm so much more.

The Plan:

You know, one day, I decided what I wanted to do with my life.

I wanted to travel and see the world.

I wanted to live free and float from one place to another.

I wanted to write and have fun while juggling the smallest amount of adult responsibility I could get away with.

I had a dream, then, I got comfortable.

This is my unplanned life.

Thanks for following along in my journey.

The Blog:

I had intended for this to be a strictly funny blog. A place where all the messed up things I found funny could live and be shared with the world. This really isn't a "Family Friendly" blog in the sence I swear and am rather inappropriate when I really get on a roll. I do have the Family Friendly blog where my friends and family can keep up with our day-to-day. But this site, this site is not for the cute, warm and fuzzy, this site is for the darker and more twisted.

You know what they say though, you all know the grossly misquoted "The best laid plans of mice and men". Or, the ever popular "You wanna hear God laugh? Tell him your plans."

Well, my plan for this site got the biggest monkey wrench ever when my husband hurt me more deeply than I ever could have imagined I could be hurt. So, I realize now what this blog has to be. It has to be my place where I can put out to the universe everything that is trying to claw its way out of me. Be it funny, deep, or even a little sad, it has a place here. All the things I feel I can't put on my warm and fuzzy family blog, it has a home here.

The Family:

Seth is my Husband

Phillip is my almost 4 year old

Smudge is my Heeler

Ash was Smudge's son. We lost him due to a pick up truck hitting him when he was 6 months old on 10/04/2011. He's still a part of our family and will be talked about here from time to time.
