About

This is the place where I tell you all the wonderful, boring facts about me.  I’m a mother, a dreamer, an astronaut blah, blah, blah.  The truth is, this was the hardest section for me to write.  If I’m being honest, I have been a mom for so long I don’t really know “about me” anymore.  So, in an attempt to find myself again and my passion for writing I am starting this blog.  But I’m warning you, my words can become highly addictive, so weaker minds please turn away.

Important facts about me:

  1. I love to write!!!  It’s the only way I can really express myself.  (lucky you)
  2. I love chocolate.  ALL CHOCOLATE!
  3. I used to be a Massage Therapist. (note used to, it wasn’t for me.)
  4. I suffer from Middle Child Syndrome;  if you are one you know what I mean.
  5. I use FRIENDS, CHEERS, and SCRUBS as my therapy when I’m feeling down.
  6. I am scared of Aliens.  E.T is their ring leader.
  7. I love sharks…ironic I know.
  8. I live in the Pacific Northwest.  And no, I’m not a hippy.
  9. I have written one Middle Grade Chapter book, 3 picture books and am working on a YA Novel.  I’ve got the writing thing down, it’s just the publishing thing I’ve got to work on.
  10. I come from a big family.  Think “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” only without the Greek and instead of a Wedding, it’s EVERY SUNDAY!
  11. I am ambidextrous.  (that’s right…and left)
  12. I am not very tech savvy.  I have two brothers who do that for me.
  13. I grew up “Green” before green was cool.  Actually, it used to be quite nerdy.
  14. I don’t kill anything.  I even catch spiders in a jar and let them outside.  OK, so maybe I am a hippy, only without the B.O.

Things that might come up:

While this blog is intended to bless the world with the cleverness of me it will occasionally touch on the subject of Brain Injury.  With out going into too much detail, 2 years ago my husband suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury.  And as much as I hate to admit it, the event and recovery changed me forever.  And while I am NOT a Neurosurgeon, I do feel somewhat of an expert on the matter and perhaps my story can help even one person going through the same pain.     But don’t worry, I’ve found a way to laugh again.

Why MOM OF STEEL?

Well first of all, everything else was taken.  Seriously, I became so desperate for a name I started typing in random words and nothing.  There is even a blog with the name “POOP!”  That’s it, just poop.

Then I realized I had to get creative.  I looked at a picture of my oldest son in his “Superman’s” and I said “Man of steel,” and you guessed it.  I changed it to “Mom of Steel.”

But if you want to get deep, Here it is:  Parenthood is tough.  And to be a mom sometimes you truly do need to be “Made of Steel.”
