Everyone wants to know the important stuff right? Who is the cast of characters in the book they are reading. Well, since your reading some of the chapters of my book – perhaps I should give you a character synopsis.

Yeah that’s me. I am a first time mom, who never wanted to be a mom. I have to say though, looking back – I love having my son. I love reading, nature, video games, and most geeky tech. I am one of 6 children ( I have 5 sisters and a brother – all older) and am adopted. I was lucky enough to be adopted by my grandparents – though that makes for some weird relationships when your biological mother is now your adopted sister. I have also spent the last 20+ years living with diagnosed major depression and severe generalized anxiety.
This man deserves a golden award or something for putting up with me. He is an amazing parent, super supportive and I couldn’t be as awesome as I am without him. He is also super talented at.. well just about everything. He makes me most everything I want or need around the house and pretty much fixes everything.
This is my son, who is 6 already – sheesh time flies. He is in first grade soon and is super excited about school. He loves learning and is very athletic and active. He is taking Tae Kwon Do and just finished his first year. He is big into healthy thanks to the in-laws and loves fruits and veggies. He also loves to spend time with his furry brothers.
Yoyo came to live with us in September 2015 (he was about 6 months) and is definitely a piece of work. We got him off craigslist from a family who didn’t have the time he needed. He is full grown at a whopping 35lbs, which means he will look like a cute shepherd puppy for the rest of his life. He is also referenced by ‘Rat’ as that is my favorite name for him – because he is always looking for things to chew on like a rat. Mr. also calls him ‘Rex the destroyer’ as well – he likes to chew everything. His favorite thing to chew on is Woody. He is very smart and learns tricks very quickly and we are now learning agility together.
He came to live with us Nov. 2016 after the passing of Woody. He is a very chill, relaxed pup who LOVES the outdoors. He has certainly lived up to his name with causing lots of chaos in daily life. His favorite hobby is taking your items he finds and burying them in the back yard. Closely followed by chasing the local wildlife.
RIP 10/2016 — Woody: Woody is our old man. He is a 12 year old rot mix that we got at the SPCA after we bought our house. He is a wonderful watchdog, and a curmudgedy old coot who just wants to be near his family – or anyone who will slip him treats.
