I am on a journey that has at times left me (and others!) grinning, crying, screaming, hooting out loud and even thinking over the past few years. I am married to the Big Guy, mother to Miss H, the E-man and our furry, four-legged girl Poni. The Big Guy and I both do work that involves travel, which provides us with tears, gnashing of teeth and sometimes belly laughs and “you can’t make this s*** up” experiences on a regular basis. I have ample opportunity to listen to quiet voices of various wise people in my past, “Take a big breath and count to 10.” My aim in these musings is to share some of my journey with the hope it might give you a giggle or two, a moment of recognition, or maybe even once in awhile, something you can use.
