My name is Pamela (nickname Pammie) and I live in Sunny California. I have been married to a wonderful hard-working man for 32 years and we have three beautiful grown daughters and two gorgeous granddaughters and one very spunky grandson. I have been a Stay-at-home-Mom for just over 21 years and have been working from home for about 18 of those at home years as a freelance web and blog designer – guess who designed this blog? We have 4 very spoiled cats: SnickerDoodles, GingerSnaps, Muffin, and Pooter. I love designing and working on sites, shopping, decorating my house, Spring time, and of course, chocolate and coffee!! I really love Starbucks Mocha Frappuccino LIGHT and even better yet, the Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino LIGHT.
What This Blog Is About
Keeping husband, kids, house, cats, family AND working from home can be very stressful ~ I can go completely nuts or bitchy in about 2 seconds flat, but I really wouldn’t trade any of it for anything!
I want this blog to be a place to share my life, happiness AND all the bad things that go with it and be able to talk about depression without being judged by the masses. What I mean: On my Facebook account I have friends, design colleagues and clients that I chat and share with, many of them share WAY too much information and most of it is very FLUFFY, happy and downright vomit-worthy. When I try to share maybe something that is not so gumdrops, lollipops and happy, I get mauled. So now I only post the FLUFF stuff. I feel like I can’t even be myself really – I’m not always happy and who really is? And hey, I can get mauled at home, I don’t need it from the public as well. So I just want this to be a place where I can go and share my reality without feeling the need to glamorize it or feeling like I am going to hurt someone’s feelings, or just plain send people into some kind of “Pammie, you shouldn’t say that!” shock. I’m not perfect, I’m not rich, and I don’t have all of the answers, so why should I have to pretend to be any of that just to make someone else feel better. I want to stop all the fluff and get to the truth of it all and post it all here!
Whew.. So grab a cup of coffee and some chocolate and let’s relax!
P.S. There are those people out there – be it family or so-called friends – that RELISH in the bad things that happen to me and I’m not going to give it to them. They won’t be able to read it because they aren’t invited to read this blog.
