I signed up for the 2-week long “Get Social Event” sponsored by Herding Cats & Burning Soup. It’s basically an event where we visit other blogs and get acquainted. As some of you may visiting Mama Vicky Says for the first time, I thought I would tell a little bit about myself.
I have only been blogging for 2 years, but it is so much fun! I am a person who loves life. I am a total optimist, and believe life is a great gift, good and bad days included. I love spending time with my family, laughing uproariously, journaling and writing letters. I also like taking nice long baths, and most definitely, READING! I also believe life goes better with chocolate.
I have been blessed with two children, a boy and a girl. They are as different as night and day. My daughter, Daphne, is my General Manager (GM). She also is a dedicated book nerd like me. She keeps my blog going, and helps me with my home-based business, Sugar and Spice Designs. We design greeting cards, make hand-poured soaps, and comfy beanies.
My son, Adam, is an expert on all things EBay. He is a great handyman. He has given me 2 beautiful grandchildren (Okay, he had some help, but let’s not talk about the ex.), Katie, aged 10 going on 16, and Jake, who is 8 years old. They are the apples of my eye. I wish they would always stay little.
I am attempting to write a book about our rotten Chihuahua. He’s much worse than Marley ever was! His name is Mr. Pete. He may be kind of cute because he is tiny and doesn’t have the typical Chihuahua bug eyes, but he is 5.4 pounds of sheer trouble. And he hogs my bed. Don’t blame me. He belongs to my daughter.
I am a registered nurse. My favorite season of the year is spring. My favorite colors are pink and black. I love to swim and take walks and do crosswords.
I am looking forward to visiting all of the blogs during the “Get Social Event”. Thank you for stopping by!
