An Adventure Into Blogging

Today I have started on this adventure called blogging. While I have no specific direction for this particular blog I wanted to get started.

My life, as I am sure most of yours are, is a mixture of confusion and madness. I am attempting to raise four children on my own. I have been a single mother since my oldest was 9 and my youngest was 3, they are now 14, 16, 18 and 20. Needless to say they rule my life. Actually they have become the center of my world. Some days my entire day seems to focus around what I can do for them, what I have done for them or God forbid, what I haven't done for them. Not that I am complaining they are pretty fantastic individuals, each has developed a unique personality and a creative individuality. I am sure I will be writing often of my journey as their mother. See the world does revolve around them.

I have come to a crossroads in my life and want to see what else I can do with it. I am sure you all will soon get to hear about the insane and clueless adventures of Shauni. Each day has been another growing opportunity for me, just opening my eyes some days seems like an adventure or an opportunity for fun. Of course there are those days when I think I am winning just because I did open my eyes.

I hope to extend this blog to include a few book reports and movie reports. Maybe share some of my photography. I am not sure exactly what I will end up with but for now where I want it to be go. We will see where it ends up.

For now I hope you all bear with me and enjoy the time I spend here with you all


  1. hi there i enjoyed your first entry and look forward to seeing more. kids are the world its true but dont forget the mom needs to not be lost as to who she is. to do otherwise means the kids learn being lost and unsure of who and what you are is the norm.

    but I know its a battle to keep that balance and harmony.

    take care and see you soon
