Introducing The Cast: The Adolescent Diva

2) The Adolescent Diva.

– My teenage daughter.

– Brilliant. Beautiful. My ray of sunshine (except for first thing in the morning).

– A complete and total Hot Mess, covered with a mane of curls. She appears to be the color commentator for the Drama-Drama-Drama Sports Page at her school.

– Can take the boys down in the Gaga Ball pit, much to the boys’ surprise. Her favorite slogan is “Real Princesses Save Themselves.”

– Very Right Brain-Left Brain. Talented artist. A permanent Principal’s List student, she has the potential to run an architecture firm or win an Academy Award for Set Design.

– That is, if she can ever find her pencil, her jacket, her water bottle, the mandatory note from school, her shoes…..

Introducing The Cast: The Hubby

1) Hubby.

– Married 17 years and counting, together for more than 26.

– My best friend. Amazingly hard worker. Great at sharing parenting. Proud to be his wife.

– Can make me more lose-my-mind angry than anyone else on the planet. The Y chromosome is strong in this one.

– The day I fell in love with him: He took what I considered my character flaws and spun each around into something desirable. Wow, most romance novels aren’t that good!

– Keeps hoping that I will sprout longer legs and a housekeeping compulsion. Sorry, guy.

– Definitely carries one of the genes that gave our children a flare for the dramatic. And he isn’t afraid to use it.

– The man’s as stubborn as a stone, and just as likely as a stone to be listening if the TV is on.

My First Blog Post

Ludicrous: “adjective; so foolish, unreasonable or out of place as to be amusing; ridiculous.”

– Oxford Dictionary

Welcome! I’ve started this blog to share the ludicrous parts of life with you. Our lives are frequently soda out your nose, cracking up at a funeral, laugh-till-you-snort ridiculous. And even when they do not feel that way, the nonsense can still be amazing. As a human being that must deal with other human beings, it is obvious that God’s sense of humor and patience are at work. In sharing my experiences of this life and my tilt on it all, I hope to give you a catharsis about your own craziness. So, come along as I attempt to laugh at myself as much as I do everything else, and choose to search for the smile and hope available when things go south.
