I remember once when I was ten my mom got all panicked, and wandered the neighborhood looking for me. No one had seen me for hours, and she being of a paranoid bent, was convinced some awful shadowy person kidnapped me from the peaceful Long Island neighborhood where I grew up.
Turns out, I was taking a nap in my closet, which I had set up with some old pillows and a blanket, having found a place where my bratty younger brother couldn’t find me.
Today I still try to find that sweet spot of peace and quiet, but now, instead of a little brother, I am trying to hide from a demanding boss, the kids, the dog, my co-workers, and sometimes, even my Husband.
All my life I’ve been the peacemaker, trying to avoid drama. I hate tension, arguments, and bullies. I also hate people who hide behind the internet to say the horrible things they would never say in public.
Yet I have stuff to say, so I blog.
I like to talk about my kids, but I am not a Mommy Blogger.
I like to talk about food, but I am not a Food Blogger.
I like to talk about Human Resources, but I am not a Human Resources Blogger.
I also like sex, current events, pop culture and books, but I am not blogging about any one thing. I like to blog about whatever is on my mind.
I do love to share tips, ideas and recipes that I have found help make my life easier, because the worst thing you can do with a good idea is to hide it.
I am a wife, I am a mom, I am a failed dieter who has not given up hope. I am an avid reader, and I am usually a nice person. Except of course when I am a raging bitch.
I just turned forty in 2011, so join me as I go from being 40 to being in my 40’s.
