About Me

Thanks for stopping by! My name’s Greta.

I’m the stay at home mama of four active children.

Captain Henry

Ivy the Princess

Essie the Fabulous

And Ervin, “BooBoo”

 

I’m married to our noble protector, T.

 

I am a dork. And I think I’m funny.

I am a country girl afraid of critters and living too far from civilization.

I am a widow, and remarried.

I have a Master’s Degree but no plans to use it. In fact, I’m terrified of someday having to go back to work (I wasn’t born with the Ambition Gene).

I had baby fever BAD after the youngest was born, but have since settled into a “Four, No More” attitude.

(I hate to see my babies grow up, though)

I’ve battled depression twice, after the birth of both of my girls, and still get pretty dang pissy sometimes.

Things that make me pissy? Standing in the rain. Standing in the snow. A long night after a long week. The kids not bothering to listen to me. The dogs not listening to me. Dog hair on the bed. Mud from paws on the bed. Running out of eggs. Ruining dinner. Clutter in our messy, cluttered house. Cooking a gluten free meal and the gluten free girl refusing to eat it. Children splashing water out of the bathtub. Toddlers climbing on tables. And clipping little fingernails.

Despite all of that, I try to enjoy my days and the moments that make up our lives.

Things that make me happy? The color pink. Diet Dr. Pepper with Cherry during happy hour. Girly drinks (sangria, mojitos, and daiquiris, oh my!). Non-sticky lip gloss. Kids that say “please” and “thank you” of their own free will. Cooking a gluten free meal and someone declaring it the “best food ever.” Time with my best girl friend to laugh and vent and laugh some more. Child free drives and cranking the music in the car. Hilarious conversations with little interrogators. And pedicures. 

We live out in the Kansas country, cooking it Gluten Free and keeping the crazy contained (mostly).
