I started writing "Curtains are Open" to drag myself out of a heinous divorce. I'd always wanted to write from the time I was a little girl...I just never had the confidence to pursue it. Then, when things were moving along exactly as planned and I thought life couldn't be any fell apart. In my head was a whole whack of crazy that had to get out. I started writing, in fact, the very night my ex left I wrote in my after page of words and sentences that someday, after a few shots of tequilla, I might actually read. Or burn. Or possibly rip out and make paper airplanes and origami cranes. I'll let the tequilla decide.  

In the four years that I've been blogging, I've come to discover a great passion and at the same time...realized a dream I'd long since abandoned. I've met amazing women and am told that on occassion, I inspire one or two of them. Me...a big ol' mess of crazy and I'm an inspiration! Which only goes to show you how normal we all are...if normal is nuts! 

So...while "Divorce" and "Moving On" are no longer the main topics of my blog...simply living in this crazy world while trying to raise a couple of kids, pay the bills and live a postive life while fighting against a head that usually goes to the negative...are.

My blog is about living the best life I can possibly live...while everyone watches and cheers me on. The Curtains Are Open. Wide, wide open. 

About my kids: 
Known on my blog as The Tall Blonde, Spiderman and Bones, my children are, without a doubt, embarrassed on a daily basis. But when they get over their initial reactions, I think they're kind of proud of me. Kidding aside, I'm aware of their ages (22, 16 and 14) and share the things I share with that in mind. I'd love to tell you more about them...much, much more but I've got this mortgage to pay...and counselling costs a fortune!
Parenting is...: 
We know you don't have a lot, but when you do, what do you like to do in your spare time?:

If we gave you an elephant, where would you hide it?: 
Why the heck would I hide it? I'm used to dealing with the elephant in the room.
