Loopy Is Awesome!

Loopy iPhone 6 PLUS/6s PLUS

The other day, Loopy ran a sale on phone cases in a bunch of new colors. I totally already have a green one with extra loops I ordered. I wanted one of the new colors (Matte black with the gold loops) so I jumped on the sale -- just a little too late. The sale had been over for 21 minutes by the time I opened my browser.

This is short and sweet.

My life is like yours -- it's a journey. We all have demons, we all have secrets and struggles. Mine aren't any more special than yours. I am just trying to make it through each day.

So I've taken a slight detour. It gets my creative juices flowing. It's still writing, but set to music (my real heart and soul).

I wish I had taken pictures last night, but I'm on my way to experimenting with a dream.

Please wish me luck.

My Book ("The Reluctant Housewife") - the intro (subtitle)

Yeah, I was thinking about writing a book. But, I don't think Anders has faith in my dedication (inside joke, kind of). So I'm blogging my book, one chapter at a time.

So, if I were to write a book (you never know), this would be my intro:

First, I have to Thank Anders for letting me introduce him to my 3 friends that care. We've already decided that Chapter 5 will be called:

Meet the Editor

(Not terribly comfortable reading English? Try Google Translate's Swedish or Norwegian versions.)

I have a very good friend I need to introduce you to...
He will edit this because my grasp of English grammar is not up to his standards, and Swedish is his first language.

First, he is my very good friend of almost 16 years. We knew each other PK (that's pre-kids). We were both married and he worked at a Fortune 500 train company with my husband in Jacksonville (the job is why we moved here). We bonded, because:

It's Not Just Me

I have not used this blog as I had initially intended to do. I guess I see it as another stress. I think about parts of my journey that I really want to share because it's therapeutic for me to write about it and there have been a few instances where I have helped others and that always feels good.

SO, as I learn on my own journey; I really want to share, possibly helping others and I want the feedback from fellow "Lupies" because we can only encourage each other and comfort each other. Well... I haven't done a great job. However, in the last few months I have become much closer friends with a girlfriend I met in college. Ironically, I'm fairly certain we took "Criminal Law" together at FSU (the irony should be clear later) and we were put into a study group with 2 Florida highway patrol officers. That was our only connection in college. Then thru the magic of FaceBook, we reconnected many years ago and we've become very close virtual friends. One strong bond we have is that Kelly also struggles with Lupus.
