If It’s Not Written Down…It Doesn’t Exist

Jolie here…welcome to my little corner of the world.

I’m a southern California girl raising five crazy kids with my hubby. This year will be our 30th Anniversary, brace yourselves. And don’t even get me started about the whole “Day Job” Thing.

We’re going to keep it real, girlfriends. Make yourself comfy.

My memory is murky, but clearly it’s not my fault.

I compensate with files and sticky notes and bits of writing labeled “Don’t Forget!” tucked away all over the place. Even my lists have lists.

The fam knows that if they haven’t written it down on our massive wall calendar, it doesn’t exist – even their birthdays. Whatever.

Some days are two clowns short of a circus, but my therapist says to write those stories anyway, to prove I lived.

This blog is what you pull out for your personal five minute re-group, when you want a laugh over your morning tea or to relax after tucking the kids into bed for the night.

A snack-sized colorful bit of “Are you kidding me?”

It’s my way of sharing my favorite things with all of my favorite people.

You are the ones I write for.

And now I’ll know where to find it.

    My sons grew up with the them and that was special for all of us. We have maintained some contact with your beloved mother-in-law and are soooo grateful for the connection. I’m sure she loved the gift you needed to leave her before moving into your new home.
