Mama always said...

“You will say it or bust hell wide open”. I’m sure that came from my intense need to either have the last word or my inability to ever bite my tongue. I love to speak my mind and give my opinion whether it is asked for or not and quiet honestly I give some darn good advice. Mostly because I never take my own advice or do what I should so I have learned the hard way and try to teach as I say, not as I do.

A little while back I was challenged to start a blog because people seem to be amused (or bemused) by my way of saying what others think but would never say. It is a gift and a curse. So I wanted to give this blogging thing a try and hopefully I won’t find myself talking to myself once a week on here. I want comments... I want topics... I want to tell you what I think!

So let me tell you what this blog is not. It is not a “blah, blah, blah” list of what my children are doing or a list of their accolades. We all have kids, we are all proud of them, but lets face it, outside of us and their grandparents no one really wants to read how many pageants they win, home-runs they hit or horse barrels they jump. It is not daily photos of pretty flowers or yummy edibles. Although occasionally I probably will not be able to resist adding a photo of some random moron who obliviously dresses in a way that I cannot help but mock and share with my friends.

What this blog is though is anonymous. I don’t want to tell you who I am not because I am ashamed but because people are so often judgmental and won’t allow you to be yourself. I love my family and don’t want the fallout of what I may say to affect them. I just want to freely speak my mind and if you want to freely speak yours, you can do it here. I am a wife, a mother, a daughter and a loyal friend. I am laid-back and outgoing but can be a total bitch if you hurt someone I love out of pettiness or stupidity. I’m kind of funny and definitely a smart-ass, but I am loving and will go out of my way to help someone I love. On the other hand, if you are a constant pain in my ass, I will cut you off quicker than a split end. You may think you know me, but honestly as Miranda Lambert says in all her wisdom. “I’m just like you.... only prettier”.
