Aside

This is the first post on my new blog and I’ve been thinking about what to write.  My 15 month old grandson is here and the living room is filled with toys.  He’s supposed to be tired and wanting a nap but you know how that goes-NOT!  He’s trying to help me type and as soon as we clean up the toys, he gets them all out again.  The dog is barking and it’s total chaos so it seems like a good time to make a cup of tea and write!  So now the question is what to write?  I have all sorts of ideas in my head and I have a lot to say, but will anyone want to read it?  I hope so but it sort of doesn’t matter because I’m just going to write what’s in my heart and what I’m feeling.  I hope it’s stuff that you can relate to and will find interesting, and maybe learn from, as I’ve made my share of mistakes and had my share of success.

I’m 64, a separated wife, a mother, and a grandmother.  I’ve had a career, been through surgery several times with more to come (arthritis), and now am starting over in several areas of my life. I’ve been a Child Development and Sewing writer for Examiner.com for over a year and it’s fueled writing aspirations beyond that.  The past five years of my life have been really crazy so I’ve even started writing a book about what I’ve gone through and I’ll be sharing some of those experiences with you as well as whatever else is on my mind and in my heart.

  1. Shelley-I really enjoyed your blog, though it was short! Waiting for more insights from you and hope you keep writing your heart out! Hard to believe that your grandson is already 15 months old…I remember waiting to hear that he had been born and everything was good. My grandson, Nicholas James, turns eight years old TODAY! I can hardly believe that as well! I also have a 6 year old granddaughter from my older son, Andy. I am expecting them to visit today, from Maplewood, NJ to Topton, PA, where we have just recently moved to. Keep writing and I will keep reading.
