Who am I? I am Shari, a 30 year old blogger from Kansas with a small family. I have a three year old special needs son, Alexandr and a 28 year old husband named Zane who is an over the road truck driver. I like video games and all things you’d probably consider nerdy, I like my country music and I have a southern soul to some extent but I listen to a bit of everything. I’m no stranger to hard work though and I love things like classic muscle cars, football, and working with my hands. I also love to paint and do crafts too as well as cooking. I’m a bit of an odd duck. My husband calls me a Jill of all trades and he’s not wrong. I have been blogging for a good long time, which you’ll find if you follow my blog back a way. I started out on Xanga many years ago in around 2003 and I’ve been able to port things over. If you’re looking for a blogger who blogs about life, the beautiful, the ugly, and the realistic. That’s me. I blog about a little bit of everything and everything in between that.
I am currently in the process of converting to Judaism. So between blogging about motherhood, being the wife of a truck driver who isn’t home as often as we would like sometimes, and making the distance work. You’ll also find me blogging about the very personal and spiritual journey I am undertaking. I also battle with many chronic illnesses on a daily basis, and as such I tend to blog about my struggles with that. It gives me a place to clear my frustrations with it. I look at this blog as a place of healing for me. In my past I have written things that are nice, and not so nice, good and not so good. There have been things in myself I wish to never be again, but all of it is and was me, better or worse. I can look back on it all and take something from it. It’s like a living diary. I’ve been a stupid kid, and a silly adult. I’ve won some, lost some, I’ve been hurt, and I’ve done the hurting, and I’m still standing. Every day I learn something new. I consider that life’s victory.
Thank you for joining me on my journey, good and bad, come what may, I will enjoy sharing it with you. I’d love to hear from you, comments, or emails, or what have you. You can find my facebook and twitter up top as well.
