What you can expect:
The brutal truth of me, without all the sugary coating.
Here I am just me, UNCUT and UNEDITED.
I talk about my family, my divorce, and a lot about MAKEUP.
If you leave me a comment, I will love you forever. :)

Let the games begin

Of course by "games" I mean writing. (StarCraft? No, that's Husband you're thinking of.)

Even Max is excited!!!

My new laptop is here. Thanks to a Pell grant for college, I was able to pay for tuition AND this fantastic new tool! I can hardly believe it's mine. I think I'm still in shock., basically the best place ever to buy electronics, has never failed us and this is no exception. For $500 I got a really great machine with good memory and processor. School and work are going to be so much easier, and seriously, I can write my book whenever I want now. No more waiting until there's a free computer... I have my own place to store my work, and it travels with me. I couldn't be happier.

(Did I also mention the awesome Ikea bed tray thing I got? If you click the link, it's the white one on the top left. It was a couple weeks ago, but seriously... it's awesome. I use it as a laptop stand in bed, on the couch, on the floor... it's perfect. It's called a Tolga table if you're looking for one, and I got it on sale at Ikea for $4.99.) 

After months and months of hand-writing everything, I am basically jumping for joy (well, as much as someone can after the successful birth of three children). No more hand-writing, no more hand cramping, no more wait until the baby is in bed to write. Pretty sure this is what Heaven feels like. :)

Yep, this is exactly the kind of distraction I needed today... on the day my son is old enough to look like THIS.


  1. What an awesome day!! Love you

  2. I miss the flexibility of using a laptop! We cut back on expenses and wireless internet was the first to go. My desktop is my friend.


Comments make me ultra happy! Tell me who you are, what you think, why you're here...
