Welcome to My Crazy Life

IMG_20150901_204354A dreary Monday today, nothing but rain with more to come.  It does make for good writing , so calm and tranquil, the birds aren’t even chirping right now.

I’m Amy — redheaded spitfire that has just totally changed her life on the brink of her 40th birthday.  This quiet is new to me, alone time is new to me…it’s the first time since I was 19 years old that I didn’t have to worry about anyone but me, humpf… not sure how I like it or where I’m suppose to go from here.

So let’s just jump into the dirt, shall we! In the past year, I walked out on my marriage, got a divorce, left two stepsons and a giant family that I loved dearly, my pets, my job, everything…  I do have an older son, my own, he’s off in college. He’s been my sidekick since I was 19.  And now here I am, having thought that I finally had it right only to once again be starting over, and this time all by myself.

I been told I don’t look like I’m about to be 40 and I don’t feel it. Don’t get me wrong, I’m psyched about turning 40! I’ve never understood why women feel so ashamed about getting older. I went through a lot to get here and no one is going to put it down.IMG_20150919_071602

So, oh yes back to where I am now… I moved to my best friends house to help renovate it and now I’ve bought it with my new boyfriend (see picture to the right.)  Not just a house, a house with a pool and a yard. Something I could’ve only dreamed of when my son was little.  I have a car, 2 cats, a couple of strays, a raccoon and opossum outside that I feed scraps, and oh yes a new boyfriend, did I mention that already?

I’m hoping my blog will be entertaining and informative to the world.  I’m not creating a new wheel here, but I’ve learned alot of things, where to find stuff, how to make stuff, etc… and everybody seems to ask me all the time anyway if I know what could help this or that or where they could find something, so I’m just going to widen my circle.  Looking forward to getting to know my readers and we are all in this together.  Any comments and suggestions on what you would like to read would be appreciated.


Love ya’ll, see ya soon.
