So here I am. It's the first blog and I find myself flashing back to puberty. I feel as if I need to grab a pencil and start doodling all over the blog page with little hearts and flowers but we know that can't happen. Back when I wrote in Dear Diary, I had to deal with the fact that my little sister would probably read it without my permission and pass it around at one of her slumber parties behind my back. I guess I should be thankful she couldn't drive to the library and use the copy machine. Now I am posting on the world wide web and I think I may be okay with it all. :-) I guess we will have to see what kind of blog comments come rolling in across cyberville in the future.
Now, what will you expect in my blog? Let's just say that between my musings on the darker side of life and my new life as a West Virginia resident, you will probably hear all about my paranormal exploits, haunted excursions, cemetery trips and more than you probably want to know about history and mystery the Haunted Heartland.
I have had a pretty eventful first year here in wild and wonderful West Virginia. I moved here to south central West Virginia from the Canton Ohio area in March, got married, wrote two books that were published, moved an office and have made 65 trips back and forth to NE Ohio to be with my kids in about 14 months. I started writing a new monthly column in Two -Lane Livin' called Fireside Folklore and I am excited to be among the great writers and articles it features. I'm still doing haunted tours, working on a new book for September release and am trying to be around Perry enough so he can claim me as his new wife. Am I tired? You betcha. Am I happy? You betcha! Do I miss my teenage kids? More than you can even possibly fathom. Life goes on and I do the best I can with what my path in life is. Hey...any day above ground is a good day indeed!
So there you have it. My first post to my first blog and it seems to be a cross between some kind of mini therapy session and a Catholic confession gone wrong. Hmmmm....sounds like the basis for a new reality tv show?!!
