Our Best Good Behavior

I’m nearly 40 years old now (actually barely 39) and I still have no idea what I wanted to do with my life all these years! So I guess since I never knew what I wanted to be, I’m not disappointed in what I actually became, which is … 

An amateur:  

Blogger, mom, wife, singer/musician, wine-lover and Christian. (Those are the high points anyway.) And I never really “planned” to be any of these things. I think I did pretty well with my non-plan approach to building a life.  

I was a single mom for many years (raising one son). His name is Brody. He’s 18 and has always been and still is a LIVING DOLL. We lived in small, cheap places in some questionable neighborhoods while I went to college and he went to grade school. As loving parents do, mine became our port in the storm and absolutely lost their minds with love and devotion to their first grandson. (Thanks Mom & Dad! I would have never made it without you!)

My Knight in Shining Armor is my husband, a sexy, tall Clint Eastwood type with a dry sense of humor who scares people (something I secretly love) because he looks like a dignitary or mobster all dressed in black suits driving a black Chrysler 300. Don’t worry, he’s a funeral director so he’s legit. He also considers Brody to be one of his own sons 🙂 How lucky can one gal be? 

I started this blog because the one thing I haven’t done in my adult life is write (or write what I want to write that is). I worked in non-profit development for a decade and I did a heck a lot’a writing (grants, press releases, letters etc.) Snore-writing. 

So I’m super pumped to have this blog. I hope it goes well. I can’t even begin to predict where it will lead or what I will write about. It will probably be a hodgepodge of sorts. 

I am a reforming pessimist so as part of my behavior modification plan, other than having glasses of red wine, my content likely will remain light-hearted for the most part. I love humor. It gets me through hard times (and we all have those). So here’s a toast to me and you and being on our best good behavior!
