Let's get ready to rum ball!

Get it? Rum ball = Rumble. Well, this seems as good of a way to start a blog as any. Merry Christmas.

On December 24, 2008 I was 25, newly married, and working as a receptionist.  I started out reading a couple of great blogs and was inspired to create my own.  

This blog was started to be a place to be weird and goofy but my brand of weird and goofy is best experienced in person so instead I started writing about the goings on in my life. 

It took a long time to find my "voice" here and I cringe reading some of my old posts.  Cringe.  But just like my brace-faced/home-permed/neon outfit middle school pictures, they still exist.  I refuse to delete, keeping them as evidence of growth.  Or something.

This blog and I have been through a lot together.
And to those who read, you have given me so very much.

I'll stop being such a sap now.  Anyhow, thanks for reading.


  1. You are brave. I have 12 posts reverted to draft. How long did you work as a receptionist? Too much multitasking for me.

    1. I was a receptionist for about 2 years and it was my least favorite job. The multitasking wasn't too bad I just didn't like talking on the phone all day.

    2. I talked on the phone for work for years. I have anxiety when the phone rings now

    3. The worst part was they wouldn't turn the caller ID on to ensure that I was treating every call the same. I can't help it, I like a heads up of who's calling me so I can be emotionally prepared. :) Blasted phones!

  2. Hilarious picture! Totally hear you on the cringing, but awesome that you see the growth in it. Kudos to you for keeping all your old posts up!

    1. Thanks and thanks for stopping by!


Hey you! Got somethin' to say?
