Freaks? Oh ya.... you know it!

So after numerous attempts at blogging, I have decided to stop forcing a subject or topic and just let my life dictate what it is I say next.  My feeble attempts at weight loss are boring even to me and although I may share an interesting recipe once in a while, I am no chef or weight loss guru.

I have spent the last 14 years being a mom; a damn good one I might add.  My daughter is top of her grade, athletic, and for the most part polite (but let's be realistic, she's 14).  My husband and I were even told by her teacher last week that we should write a book about how we raised her.  Honestly, I think that was the biggest compliment I have ever received.  However, this blog will not be about that either.....well not always.  Let's face it, teenager's mistakes make some of the best stories, so one or two might come into play now and then.

It has come to my attention lately that my daughter is growing up and in a few years I will be left to rediscover who I am.  I know that I am not alone in this journey so any help I can get would be greatly appreciated.  My husband works away at a fly in camp and so he is gone half of the year.  I live in a town with no family and while I have a good "friend" base, it's just not the same. 

I will do my best to keep from revealing my family's secrets but for the most part none of them will even read this so who cares if some strangers know that we're a bunch of  freaks.  Hear that?  I think it's circus music.


  1. Serious circus music... I think I might see more than a few monkeys on unicycles in tight little circles in this show too :)

  3. Oh Michelle! Thank you for that laugh this morning! I'll be the bearded lady....and you can be the tight rope walker for all the balancing you have had to do lately. Let's travel the world and sadly we might sell more tickets if the "clown" sticks around. LOL Russ can be the ring master and Dad.....well dad might be one of those monkeys. Bahahahah!
