2 About Me

Having my babies at age 23 and 25 seems REALLY young by today's norm, I've been a Mom most of my adult life. Now that my beautiful girls are women themselves I have time to focus on me, which for most of us is very hard to do....Why is that??

I love to READ! 

So having a career as a Elementary school reading teacher is perfect for me!

I live at The Rottie Ranch!

That is what my husband and I like to call it because we have three gentle giants at our house. Our Mama dog, Abbi, and two of her pups, Kane and Ceiba fill our nest now.  They spend lots of time in "their" swimming pool.


I've been married a LONG time!  

Yes...I married my high school sweetheart....and 26 years later he is still the love of my life!
The picture above shows my wedding day, a semi-current photo of Todd and I, those beautiful girls of mine, that grew up WAY too fast, and my well behaved pups posing for the camera!


I LOVE to SAVE $$$ 

Who doesn't right?? Well this past year, thanks to my friend Patty, I have started to save lots of money through couponing and by reading some fantastic blogs out there. I plan on sharing lots of information on this topic in future blogs.


My Disorganization has caused me STRESS!

Some lucky people are born with a brain to organize...welp NOT ME!!  I may be a lefty but my brain is NOT logical and organized.  This is an area I am working on! I  have improved immensely but...I still have a long way to go!  I plan on sharing some of my favorite projects, books, magazines and blogs on the subject in the future and look forward to some of you organizing geniuses to help me out!!


I want to look YOUNG and live HEALTHY!

How does a chocoholic eat healthy and drag herself to the gym? Well...another area I can always use help!!!  Lucky for me my husband is a work out/health nut (is that really lucky for me?) and my daughter Brianne is a make up/skin care and wardrobe stylist. I'll share tips and my struggles in future posts.  


I'd LOVE to connect with you!

The purpose of sharing my life is to connect with others who may be dealing with some of the same struggles...overcoming obstacles, and celebrating achievements.

I thank you for taking the time to read my posts and hope to hear from you!!



  1. thank you so much for sharing this Sharon. I became a mom for the first time at 21 it seems as though I had no life before my kids. then I close my eyes open them again and they were grown and moving out of the house. when I dropped my baby off at college I cried the whole way home. then I came home to an empty house and I thought I would never feel whole again. but little by little I am finding that there is life after your babies grow up. I love this blog already I will write again another time gotta run. but I just wanted to say this is awesome and I love it thanks your seminal sister class of 1984 kerri

  2. It can be heartbreaking but having great friends to share your pain helps! When you start to concentrate on YOURSELF and what makes you can become a whole new world...I am starting to enjoy Life After Empty Nest!
    Hope you'll come back and keep reading! xoxo


I'd LOVE to hear from you! Please leave me a comment and let me know what you're thinking!
