Oh my GOODNESS, but I'm so very excited to be the Featured Blogger of the day today!!! Seriously, you have NO idea. I've been a huge fan of The Secret is in the Sauce since the day I discovered that leopard printed wonder of a site! I've met so many fantabulous bloggers over the past few months through SITS, and now it is actually my turn! I'm doing my best happy dance, which is only marginally better than this:
Yes, that's right, I'm doing a veritable dry heave set to music out of excitement today! Sweet fancy Moses!
If you want to know the nutshell version of me, check out the sidebar over yonder on the left. The really teeny nutshell version is this: I'm Heather, married to Hubby, one daughter - Kiddo, age 5 and who just started kindergarten. (Actually, today is her "special day" at school and Hubby and I will be heading over this afternoon to participate in her "All About Me" day, complete with her photo story presentation - all glued onto neon pink posterboard and accessorized with a zillion stickers. I get the extra honor of reading the story Kiddo selected - Dinosaurumpus!, a great, fun to read aloud book - to the class, too!) We live in the 'burbs of upstate (western) New York with our crazy cat and Kiddo's big, fat, carny goldfish, Swimmy. Swimmy and I have issues, as she has on more than one occasion tried to kill me. To quote Kiddo, around here we're all "nuttier than a can of cashews," so consider yourselves warned. (To give you one example, we frequently have Opera Day in our house, where everyone sings everything instead of speaking. Well, except for the fish - she considers herself above such things.) That being said, please feel free to poke around. I've got a music playlist down towards the bottom of the sidebar, but it doesn't start automatically, so never fear if you're like me and up reading in the wee, small hours when your loved ones (or other, more sensible types) are asleep. Oh, and way down at the bottom is a video clip that I find extremely entertaining, but that's just 'cause I'm a huge word nerd. What else? Let's see... Kiddo was adopted as a newborn, which is the same way I joined my family as a baby back in the day. She has Sensory Processing Disorder (henceforth abbreviated SPD) which is also sometimes known as Sensory Integration Dysfunction. You can learn more about SPD by clicking here.
I'll stop rambling on now (I can be a bit verbose, 'specially when I'm so dang excited) and just say WELCOME once again!! I'm off to swipe a tiara out of Kiddo's dress-up box because I feel like Queen for a Day today! Cheers!
