I was born and raised in the Arklamiss. My husband and I are currently situated in northern Louisiana raising a gaggle of sons, a black cat, and a Maltipoo pup. There is never a dull moment in this house with only boys(ages 6,5, & 1). The headless chicken bit serves as sufficient explanation.
Type-A multitasker to the death, I am also a student (perpetually I think). I hold two degrees in history and adjunct when I can. Which = when the great state of Louisiana education budget allows.
PSA: Coffee. It is the survival tool.
When the Down Time Unicorn passes by--I read. A lot. And I'm not really sure it's just a, "down time," thing. Frequently, I lock myself in the bathroom just to read a few chapters (eat a hidden candy bar). Beyond that, I design things (like this website), book covers/trailers, and watch Netflix.
If you want to know more, stick around. I talk a lot. It's this thing I do. My Momma says it works for my chosen profession(s).
That is not what she thought when my grade school teachers were calling her all the time to complain about my, "motor mouth".
Bunch of whiners.
Oh, how the times doth change. (I love you, Momma.)
