Thanks for coming over to see what all the fuss is about! So, I have a little announcement…
After much prodding from others, and a need to add something legitimate to my writing resume, I am… writing a book.
Yes, After writing blogs for 7 years, I decided to do something constructive (one would think) with my stories. So I have a book that’s in the editing stages and I hope to have it out in time to make a great holiday gift! I figure if Snooki can write a book, so can I!
The book is a collection of re-worked blog posts with some additional content and summary lessons. The content mostly focuses on overcoming adversity in regard to relationships, finances, children, and career, all with a big dose of humor. And the working title is…
“When Life Gives You Lemons… At Least You Won’t Get Scurvy!”
In recent years I’ve been dragged kicking and screaming over to the bright side. I’ve had no choice but to stare that bright side in the face and decide to make the best of whatever life brings. However, for years I did find strange comfort in soaking in the hot tub of the dark dreary side of life, you know the one that drunk spring break couples got nasty in? (that was a metaphor kids, I didn’t really hang out in a skanky hot tub) It was easier (so I thought) to expect the worst and be angry at the world. I honestly don’t know how some of you folks put up with me. Obviously some didn’t, if you take a look at my dating resume. Oy.
I don’t claim to be all self-righteous and pretend “Madge Knows Best”. What I do know is I made some mistakes along the way, as well as some good decisions too. I hope others can gain some insight from the lessons I’ve learned because things always seem a little more manageable when you know someone else has been through it and survived. I also give helpful hints on things like which douchecopters to stay away from and how to prevent your kids from becoming A-holes, like those kids down the street.
I’ll keep you all updated. Any questions, feel free to ask!
