For the longest time people have suggested to me that I start a blog, though I'm not really sure why.  I really don't think that my life is that interesting, actually it's pretty boring to be honest.  I think it might have to do with my sense of humor.  I had one co-worker/friend try to convince me to try stand up comedy.  He was strongly rebuffed!  What made me change my mind is in one word changes. 

Many things have happened this past year that have accumulated into a life altering decision.  The final one is my grandfather's health.  After a long hard look at things, my mother and I have decided to move "back home".  Since she had retired and I'm currently at a crossroads, we are doing something we swore we'd never do, move from Austin to a small Texas town.  I've have lived here half my life, and almost all of my adult life (excepting that year after I graduated from college).  Sometimes life has a funny way of throwing curve-balls.  I should know better than to never say never because it always has a way of biting you in the arse . Moving from a large city to a town with about 1800 people is a big change. 

This blog will be my little spot on the interwebs to laugh and hopefully laugh some more.  I will say that this blog will be a little bit of this and a little bit of that in that I'm not setting out to write a "specific type" of blog.  You will probably find everything from recipes to crafts to movie reviews to who knows what else.  If people read it and enjoy it great.  If no one reads it, well that would kind of suck but it's life and I'll get over it.  In choosing a title for this blog, the first thing that came to mind was Alice in Wonderland for some odd reason.  Given that when I was younger the "Big City" was like an odd Wonderland for me.  It is a place I will greatly miss and dream of, but hopefully will one day return.  So hear goes the start of something interesting...


  1. Congratulations on your new blog! I hope that all goes well with your Grandfather. I think that you're doing the right thing by going to help him out. I moved hundreds of miles away from my Grandfather and in the end, when he got sick, I couldn't be with him. I'll always feel sad about that. I know he'll think the world of having y'all there with him.

    1. Thank you so much for the kind words! When I saw that I actually received a comment I was excited, but when I saw it was from you, I was fan-girl excited. Not to sound stalkerish, but I've been reading your blog for over a year but been shy on commenting. Even more excited to have you as my first follower. Ok, I'll calm down now, please excuse my goofiness. :D

  2. I stumbled on your blog today and I'm so happy to see you're from Austin too! I look forward to reading more posts. Have fun with your new blog. :D
