I’ll give you two reasons:
1. Because I’m just like you.
2. Because I’m nothing like you.
Maybe you’re married, have children you love dearly – but who also believe they were put on this earth to make you question your sanity. Maybe you’ve always felt that you had something special to write and now in between watching one son’s baseball games, the other’s son’s theatre performances, fundraising, cleaning, stressing over college choices and teenage drivers you feel the urge to stand tall like William Wallace in “Braveheart” and declare “FREEDOM”…um, I mean, “FINALLY…I’m havin’ my say!”
Or, maybe, you’re nothing like that…
…but you’re interested in getting a look at life from someone who is the complete opposite of you – sort of.
I wasn’t always married. Didn’t always have kids. In fact, I’m a former marketing communications business owner who “retired” to stay home and raise men.
Some days I certainly wonder: What the heck was I thinking?
I have always had a unique perspective on the world around me. Not so much THE WORLD but my little, teeny, tiny corner of it. And that’s what I’d like to share with you.
I like to write about those crazy moments in life that make you say “Huh?” Many of those include my teenage sons and their friends and my oldest son’s struggles with Asperger’s Syndrome (a form of high functioning autism). Others are just my take on everyday occurrences. I have a dry sense of humor that leans to the sarcastic side and I’m just learning to put written words to it so give me a chance to explain where I’m coming from if I didn’t do a good job of it in a post.
I love writing, reading, the San Francisco Giants, and…yes, believe it or not…public speaking. Ask my sister. I will speak on any topic to any amount of people, anytime, whether they want my opinion or not.
It’s like blogging…sort of!
I’ll be here each week havin’ my say, I hope you’ll share yours, too!
