It’s been years since I have blogged. No real excuse other than just living my best life. A lot has happened since my last post. I originally started this blog as a place to vent about my mothers different kind of crazy.
I’m sad to say that on July 21, 2016 my Mom passed away from complications from kidney failure and pneumonia. There were family and close friends at her side. More on that later.
I have decided to blog about my childhood and other stories of my crazy family in short essay form with pictures from my childhood. I believe that stories and photos matter. I’m all about wearing my heart on my sleeve and being vulnerable even with the risk of being judged. I want these stories in print for my kids and someday my Grandkids. When people stop telling stories, and taking photos, those stories die with the last person who told them.
The photo above is of the “original four”. My Mom, My younger but much taller brother CR, me and my Dad.
My Mom always wanted to write a book about her different kind of crazy. We always said “It’s another one of Gail’s adventures”. There will be lots of stories. Funny, tragic, ones that make you scratch your head, possibly ones that make you cry but I hope you enjoy the ones that make you laugh the most.
This blog was a brainchild of one of my best friends who is also a writer. She is the one that told me I should start blogging these stories, and maybe someday make them into a book. (Yes, I have that many)
Thank you for being here. I look forward to making connections with you through the comment section, and hopefully making you laugh.
Cheers to a different kind of crazy,
