About Me


I’m the Mom, the Wife, the Leading Lady and the Head of the Household.  Well, okay – Hubs might roll his eyes and snort a little at that but I’m the one that runs the show.  The whole circus is mine and the monkeys belong to me.

I raised 4 smart, funny, witty, go-getter kids plus a husband, 3 dogs and a psycho cat.  I deserve an award.  Really.  I taught them to refrain from picking their boogers in public, how to only relieve crotch itch in the bathroom and how to act something close to human when in public.

They’ve gone from mush-brained sponges of cuteness to thinking, thriving adults in a dog-eat-dog techno world and I have resisted the urge to take selfies of myself holding big giant Happy Birthday banners, I have kept from sobbing alligator tears when it is time for them to drive offf and live their other life, the adult one, the grown up life that doesn’t include me.  I have zipped my lips into a perpetual smile of “oh-I’m-so-fucking-happy-you’re-all-grown-up-now” when what I really want to do is lock them in their bedrooms so I can protect them and keep them safe.

So yea, I do kinda deserve an award.  I’ve been a pretty good Mom.  I’ve taken it all in with stride.  But now…well now I’m ready to live my life on my terms and enjoy the freedom that comes with knowing that your family is grown and can take care of itself.

All things said and considered – me, not you – pour yourself a mug of Jo, Iced Tea or a beer, join in the craziness and let me know what you think from time to time.

  1. Niki, thank you for reading and thank you for responding. While we may not agree on religion we can agree to just be human. Thanks again for reading.

  2. I want to say I read your message about the cult that I am in. I love being Apostolic. I was impressed. I have two daughters and a son that are not interested. But I’m sure your parents are so proud of how you put it out there. I am sure they did the best that they could.

  3. Hi Wendy! Sometimes I write several articles at one time and then schedule them to post at different times. Sometimes I actually write them that day and post them that day. Sometimes I go quite a while in between posts. How often I post really depends on my schedule.

    Honestly I’m the worse one to ask about writing multiple articles, lol cause I’m terrible at it. All I can say is write until your eyeballs pop out and then write with them closed. lol Best of luck to you. I’ll be looking for you at AC. I’ll also be looking for your blog posts.

  4. I would love to know how you are able to write so many articles. I saw how many you posted just today. I am impressed!! Do you do that daily or just gather them up after writing for a day or two and then post them at the same time? I’m also on AC, but it’s been a while since I posted anything. Well, I did post a book review last month, but that was the first in months. I would love some tips on how to get multiple articles written even as I’m working on my blog and other projects. Thanks and keep going!

  5. I really enjoyed your article because i just got a business card on my door from the Child Protective Services. Even though its old, it is comforting that maybe, just maybe laws like the Governor of California may become more accepted across other states. I am currently in Texas.

    My wife passed away and its highly possible her family is behind this. It has been mentioned which of her family has caused this, but i have yet to question them.

    Anyway, we have 8 children and from day one of her death, 3 months ago, it has been brutual tug a war over my wife and i children.

    Your article has given me direction in how to persue the matter as my investigation will probably start today sometime.

    I guess, i have alot of research to do.

    I would appreciate hearing from you.
