Welcome to my little ol' blog. I'll be upfront about it: I don't blog very often any more. If you found your way here because you read my book "Trailer Life," have a gander! But it's easier to keep up with me on Instagram or on my Facebook page. I have this long, drawn out theory on why I'm a terrible blogger, but that is a story for another day. Enjoy the ramblings of my life from the last 8 years or so.

Life in a small town

We have power! It came on at 7pm. The kids and I left at 5pm to go to our favorite restaurant- El Portal. I used some gift certificates from my friend Dany. We stopped at the site where a logging truck hit the power pole, and talked to our friend Kenny, who is in charge of a lot of the power company stuff up here. He gave me the heads up on why it happened and when the power would be back on. Then we went to the restaurant. We get out of the car and talk to the propane lady and her dad. I had just talked to her earlier in the day. I need to learn her name. She loves labs and quilts. We sit in the booth next to the manager/owner of our local little grocery store, Neil and his wife Amie, and their kids. While we are eating, the receptionist from the local dentist up here (Terri) and the Sgt. and his wife Wendy stop to say hi and chat. Then, two "fuzzes" come in, and we talk to them and say hi. I felt so popular... LOL. That's what happens when you go to the best little Mexican restaurant in a small town. I'm just grateful for the power to be back on. No AC is No Fun.


  1. Thanks for the invite tonight. I have company in town and just got your message. Would love to have joined you for dinner. We will plan for another day. Thanks for thinking of me.

  2. See that's what I am saying when I say I miss that small town atmosphere. I like knowing everyone in my town. Some people hate it they don't want people knowing their business, which happens. But I figure as long as I am not doing anything wrong, who cares what they know. Besides when your kids get a little more independant they tend to be better behaved because they know someone is going to snitch to mom and dad if they are not. LOL!

  3. I love a small town. I went to Wal-Mart with my mom and she knew everyone in the store.
