First off you should know that, at least in my house, I am omnipotent and omniscience. They doubt me, until they need something. Then, I'm the knower of all the things, the finder of all the things, the keeper of all the things. I am also the killer of all the things, the cleaner of all the things and, though my husband is a carpenter, the fixer of most of the things. This is an inherited mom/woman ability. Like multi-tasking.
I'm also a wife and mother of 3. (Though I think a lot of women will agree there isn't a whole lot of difference.) My kids are far from being little anymore at 15, 14 and 12. Eeek! I know, right. It seems it wasn't long ago Moira and I were trying to figure out the source of the finger "paint" our 4 year olds were using. Shudder. Yes, that story will be used for embarrassment in the future. Oh, yes.
But, I digress. Which I tend to do quite often. Moira is the more organized of us. I thrive on chaos...organized chaos mind you, but chaos none the less. I love things neat, but keeping them that way is a whole other ball of wax. C'est la vie.
I wasn't a big reader as a child, but I could daydream circles around most people. Still can. If I could get that to translate into writing I'd be golden! I read mostly romance. I do love Dave Barry and Erma Bombeck. I read and enjoy Tolkien. I read the way I watch movies, to be entertained. I don't want to have to use a notepad, slide rule and an astrological chart to keep track of what's going on. That doesn't rate on my fun-o-meter. A lot of laughs, things that blow up, and nice eye candy are on my list of things that are fun.
I hope you enjoy our blog, and that I can entertain you as well as I do the crowds in my head.
They just love me.
