Who is this Shelli, anyway? Well, I am a lot of things. I am “Mom” to Ashley, Emily and Sam. I am “Wife” to Jason. I am “Grandma” to Isabelle. I am a nurse to all the kids I see when I work at the pediatric clinic near my home. I am a blogger. I am a writer when I am not blogging. I am a cross stitcher when I am not blogging or writing. I am a very amateur sculpter when I am not blogging, writing or cross stitching. If there is anytime left after all those pursuits, I use it to sleep, read or exercise.
I started this blog when I saw that my friend, who goes by Geeky Mama on the ‘net, had one and I thought it was cool. I was looking for a way to deal with the grief that I was still experiencing five years after the death of my Dad. It has helped me in that way and in many other ways as well.
I am pretty much an open book, so if you have a look around, you can pretty much figure out who I am and what I am all about. There are a few posts that will really help you with getting to know me and I have included them on this page.
The wonderful thing about blogging, especially for me, has been that I have made a lot of friends that I would not ever have had a chance to get to know because they live in different areas of the country or, in some cases, different countries altogether. It is an amazing thing. I cherish those friendships. Would you like to be my friend?
