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.

The Thumper Rule
I am instituting the Thumper Rule for myself. I have had a hard time this week saying nice positive things about ANYTHING, and last night I noticed it running into my interactions with my kids, which horrifies me. The truth? My friend Jenny was leaving, and Will started dancing around the back of her car. I said "Will! Don't be stupid!" And then I felt horrible. I mean, he was almost hit by one of our cars once when he was just about 18 months old, and it has freaked me out ever since. But seriously, how mature is it to tell your almost four year old to not be stupid? Just not nice. This whole week has been negative this and negative that, and I'm tired of myself. The Thumper rule is "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all." So I'll probably be silent for awhile.
