Hi! If you're reading this, it means you probably want to know if I really do have ADD. The answer is YES!
What this means in real life is I am interested in pretty much everything. I am willing to tackle projects I probably shouldn't. And, I switch around what I'm "in to" quite often. Jack of all trades, master of none!
It also means my house is generally disorganized, but I know where everything is. It makes perfect sense in my head. Just don't ask me to explain it to anyone else.
I have a bachelor's of communication with an emphasis in journalism and public relations. When I'm not blogging, I help solicit and edit submissions for La Leche League's New Beginnings publication. I'm also an extreme couponer.
In the summer of 2004, our family moved from Oregon to Alabama. Seven years later, we moved into our dream home...or what my husband calls his nightmare. It's a circa 1910 American Four Square. We think. It might be a craftsman with all the cool stuff pulled out.
It was ridiculously affordable. Which means it needs a lot of work. So, we're restoring the house...on a cash budget. I absolutely love it!
As to the family, I am blessed with a wonderful husband, D. He teaches public school. He also needs a blog to share his experiences. They can be a bit hair raising. Or enough to make you want to home school.
We don't home school. Not any more. ADD + home schooling an Aspie...not a good thing. So they go to magnet schools and are doing well.
They: The kids. All six of them.
The Boy. He's a teenager. He has asperger's syndrome. He keeps things real.
Leelee. Also a teenager. She likes to cook. She wants to be a food scientist. As in make space food, or something like that.
Little B...not so little. He is a tween. He enjoys Doctor Who.
Danger Girl. Tiny package. Big personality. Has more ER visits than all the other kids combined.
Punky Brewster. Has her own style. Has her own ideas. Plans to take over the world.
Little Miss. She's the last one. She plans to stage a coup and take over if Punky Brewsters succeeds in world conquest.
