About

Yes, I do have a life. I’ve got a seven-year-old son, a husband, and an aging farting dog. I work out and go out with friends and drink beer and volunteer at school and fold laundry and grocery shop and clean up after people. I watch tv and don’t understand sports and ask annoying questions during the Super Bowl. Oh, and I write–for magazines, newspapers and companies. I research cancer, real estate, wedding trends and designer purses. I write about Bar-B-Q and paint supplies and all kinds of things to pay the bills. So, yes, I do have a life. And I love to write. It sounds crazy. My husband thinks it’s crazy. But I really love it. I love to laugh too, so this blog will hopefully bring those things together.
