who the heck?

Just what exactly am I doing here?  Well, for the most part, I don’t really know, but I do have a couple of goals in mind:

The primary goal of this blog is to accumulate some real-life wisdom and knowledge for my stepdaughter.  She’s 12, she’s awesome, and she’s brilliant. 🙂  My husband and I both feel like we were woefully under-prepared for adulthood by our parents.  Yes, we were both taught not to spit ketchup across the table or trip strangers at the grocery store, but where was all of that valuable information we needed about insurance and getting stains out of the carpet?  You know..the fun stuff. (*wretch*)  We don’t want to send CindyLou (absolutely, 100% not her real name) out to her adult life without the skillz required to function.  Of course, we know, some things she will need to learn on her own (no matter how many times we tell her), but why not gather up some good stuff for her?  If nothing else, she can read this when she’s 38 and kick herself in her own face for not listening…while I nod my head knowingly and put on my very best “I am so wise, little one” face.

Secondary goals?  Well, if someone else out there gets some information they can use from this blog, all the better.  The more the merrier, knowing is half the battle, and all of that nifty stuff.  I’m also hoping this blog will help me get all of the information I want to pass on organized in a way that another human could actually use it.  Since I’m also still learning how to deal with this whole life thing (yeah, I actually haven’t learned it all yet), this will be a lovely spot to share any new wisdom I come by.  Annnnd, I just kind of like blogging, and this seemed a pretty good topic to go on about.

Some warnings for you:  I am who I am.  I am opinionated, down-to-earth, occasionally foul-mouthed, sarcastic, smart-assed, and, sometimes, a little bit judge-y.  I can also be super understanding, compassionate, loving, and clever.  You’ve gotta take the bad with the good. 😉

I do so hope you enjoy the blog!
