something to follow

Ok, so I figured I would get my butt moving on actually writing something for once since there are some lovely ladies who are following me and are getting left in the cold. I also thought that it was about time I started writing again in general....since I went to school to be a writer....and 5 years later......I am finally writing (and putting over 100 grand in student loans to some use).

I'd be lying to you if I said that starting a blog was some great epiphany I had in the middle of the night during one of my brain writing truly is thanks to those few lovely ladies who have blogs themselves that make me smile daily.

I am a little terrified that I am going to have these crazy spurts of 20 posts in a row during the many sleepless nights I encounter. Typically when these far too often encounters occur, I find myself sitting up for hours thinking out the wording to the great auto-biographical novel I have been planning to write for years, but will never get around to. I guess this will be my easy way out of the commitment to a 300+ page novel.

In case you are wondering why the hell I am calling my blog pickled gumdrops....just follow this recipe and you will see how crazy things happen:

1 slightly loopy gal
1 full time job
1 two year old
1 four month old
1 depressed border collie
1 husband
0 nights of full sleep

Add a dash of love and mix all ingredients together.
Results: shoes on the wrong feet, getting into the shower with your undies on, going an entire day with a line of baby puke down the back of your shirt, and a number of other "lose your head if it wasn't attached" incidents.

So sit back, grab a cup of joe, and be prepared for the journey through my life as a full time working mother.
