Just for fun blog challenge… Day One

Okay… so here is the fluff portion of my two challenges. I figure one to amuse, and one with a point, and come November, posting normally should be pretty damn easy.

Today, I get to give an intro and a recent picture. Being that I’m not a big selfie-taker, I’ll make do with a decent one from our mini-vacation to Georgetown in August for tax-free weekend.

I am Lisa, relatively new forty-two year old. I have a total of five kids; three of them live with me. My oldest is twenty-one and relatively newly engaged; the youngest is six, and passed out on my lap. Between them, the remainder are seven, sixteen, and nineteen. I am a survivor of domestic violence. I have also survived a stroke at age nineteen, and a pulmonary embolism at twenty-nine (thank you, Leiden Factor V). I’m originally from Iowa, but shortly after my mom relocated to Texas, I came down myself.

Right now, I spend my time trying to find a way to get this place organized to my liking on a shoestring budget. I’m on a few committees at the elementary school that the littles attend, plus PTO, and trying to get a Girl Scout troop going there. Thankfully, Dallas has a fairly good public transit system, or else I’d be in a pickle.

If you’d like to know anything else, just ask. You may spawn an entire post out of it!

There I am, hamming it up with the littles taking the TRE to Ft. Worth to hop an Amtrak down to see G’ma-Mom, G’pa Alan, Dacey, and Uncle Chad mid-August.
