About April

This blog is where I talk about writing, faith, mothering, and anything else that strikes my fancy. Most of it is my attempt to find humor in life, because if we can’t laugh about stuff that goes on around us, what’s the point?

I’m a writer. I’ve got a few projects in process, but my Big One is a memoir of the six months we lived in England with 3 kids under the age of 5. That was a good time. Really. It rocked.

I’m married – Hubs and I have been hitched 16+ years. We met in college. He’s crazy smart – nuclear engineering Phd. I have a history degree and teaching certification, but if I could go do it all over again, I might skip college. But don’t tell my kids, because I want them to go to college. Speaking of the barbarians, I have 4 ranging in age from 11 to 2. One boy and 3 girls. Lots of itty bitty diva drama here feeding my need for material for the blog.

We live in a tiny town in the mountains of New Mexico. It’s a one-company kind of place. Almost everyone here works for the scientific lab. Except me. I blog and write. And do laundry. Do you know how much laundry six people generate?

Oh, and occasionally our cat brings in not-quite-dead things to eat in my bedroom in the middle of the night. That’s just nasty.

    I’m so proud of you – I love reading your posts and I think it’s wonderful that you are taking the leap into on-line authordom (is that a word?). Follow your dreams!

        I miss seeing you too! Life gets a little crazy when the kids start school. but a little more quiet too. We need to setup a mommy playdate, maybe a morning at Time Out.

    Good stuff April, it is nice of you to provide a place for the cat to come and eat, perhaps the cat will even let you stay there. 🙂

      Yeah, she’s also kind enough to let me sleep in her queen-sized bed.
