Intro PostHi Guys!
Now that I have a laptop of my own I am doing the blog thing again. I used to have a YA book blog called Lost in YA Wonderland. I loved running it but after giving birth to twins (!) a year ago I lost time to read and in the rare occasion that I could read, I no longer had time to review the books. On top of that I have not had my own computer for two years now. But I finally got my fiance to buckle under my constant nagging and now I have a shiny red refurbished Dell laptop. I'm still trying to get him to get me kindle again. One day...
Anyway, this is me.
The adorable girl next to me is my beautiful 6 year old daughter. She's so smart and has the prettiest spiral curly hair. I love her to death.
That's my fiance, Tom, and his son Thomas. Thomas is 4. We have custody of him on weekends. He is the spitting image of his dad.
Before conceiving the twins (naturally, for you nebnoses out there) I lost a baby at 18 weeks pregnant. He was boy and we named him Elliot Michael. His birthday is May 30, 2012. One day we hope to get married on his birthday so we can turn a day that, for me, can be very sad and make it a celebration.
What is this blog for? Well for one, I want to get back to reviewing books. My email is FULL of emails asking me to review books but with my old blog being out of commission for so long I just decided to start a new one. Other than that I want to share my experiences in life in general. I am a member of many many survey panels and sites like Smiley 360 and BzzAgent, so I want to share my experiences with the products that I sample from those sites as well. I'm a stay at home mom who is trying to bring in money is any way possible so when I find something that works I will share it here.
Well that covers the Mother and Reader part of my blog title. As far the dreamer part goes? Well, there are days when I miss Elliot and just want to write about my experiences being two years out from a loss. Also, my biggest dream is to be an author one day so I might be posting different things about writing and ideas for my novels. I have no one to bounce ideas off of so I'm not looking for reviewer yet as the novel is not even a quarter finished, just people to bounce ideas off of, etc. But we will get to that eventually.
I will try to post here regularly. It depends on nap schedules and bedtimes, pretty much. Or how long it takes for twins to wolf down a hot dog and some animal crackers at lunch time. I look forward to starting this journey with a new blog. Hope you enjoy it too!
