I thought my life was a trip...I think it's more of a stumble

One day (long, long ago) I was eating cupcakes with my sister in her kindergarten class, not knowing or caring who I was and the next thing I know...I am a mother, friend, wife, daughter, chef, gardener, niece, chauffeur, housekeeper, vet tech, granddaughter, "in-law", accountant, teacher, sister, nurse, cousin...  

This is a tribute to all who have made me who I am--without you I'd be sitting by myself (ahh the quiet) eating my cupcakes (no sharing)!!  As great as that sounds for a moment (ok--a couple of hours) I'd much rather be with one of you.

No time for inauguration of this blog or breaking champagne bottles (well...maybe a little vodka later).  I am off to the Academy Awards (of Orono...white linoleum instead of red carpets...plastic bleachers instead of plush seats).  Ohh, but the best part-- the "stars"--my little offspring dressed in their best (best t-shirt and sweatshirt qualifies for Henry) placing their nominations for Best Actress--Lyra Belacqua from the Golden Compass and Best Cinematographer Lauren Child of the Charlie and Lola series.  They are both proud of their creations and for that I am proud of them.  I won't mention the hours of pain they endured listening to me nag at them to "get them done"--but as they know that is part of the definition of "mom" (more on that later).

Stay tuned as I track the "wild ones" and pass along the funny (maybe humiliating) things that make up our days.

I found you! The blog looks great! Rock on girl! I love the title and the header-what a great tag line! Looking forward to seeing what is coming as long as I am not partially naked!
