I'M TICKLED BROWN AND PINK!



Welcome and a big hi to all the SITS people stopping by! I've rolled out the welcome mat just for you.










I am so excited that my day is here. Original sentiment, eh? However, it's true.










For those who may not be familiar with SITS, 'SITS' stands for 'The Secret Is In The Sauce' (a great line from the movie 'Fried Green Tomatoes'. Okay, so I'm a movie nut! However, some -- okay, MOST -- would say I'm just a nut but that's a debate for another time) and you can grab the 'SITS' button from my side bar under 'Favorite Blogs'.

SITS is a blogging community who support fellow bloggers by encouraging comment love and getting the word out there from one blogger to another.









I'm Jo, by the way, and ever since I got the E-mail the other night from Heather announcing that Friday would be my day -- I've been in a frenzy; what to wear, what to say and how to say it. So, the following poem was created just for you. It tells all about me -- 'warts and all' -- and why I began blogging.








Again, welcome and enjoy. Thank you for sharing this day with me -- I'm happy to have you.













A POETIC WELCOME

Welcome SITS gals and thanks for joining me on my SITS day, I will try not to disappoint you in any shape or in any way~

My name is Jo -- I'm a 40 something gal; happy wife, Mom of two grown kids and an overall swell pal~

Swell????

Really, Jo -- that's the best you can come up with???

Er, um.....where was I???

Oh, yeah, rhyming.

My blog is my personal truth about bankruptcy and life, it's honest and verbose prose will either piss you off or perhaps delight~

This is my place to vent about just what went wrong, about what I can do better and whether it will make me weaker or make me strong~

I put it all out on the line in the hopes at the end of the day, I made someone smile or think about life perhaps in a different way~

We're trying to pull it together; hubby, son and I. I'm on my way to bouncing back and blogging is part of the reason why~

A few supportive friends is all it takes, to make one feel grateful for all that's taken place~

A little about me: I'm a vegan and a crusader for those who have MS, I'm also recently diagnosed as anxiety ridden and a little depressed. Overall, I'm a damned bloody mess~

But I'm fighting my way back to get to a healthy place, so, I started a second blog titled; '90 Days'~

To write is my dream, to share what I know, but trying to find a publisher is where it really blows~

So sit and stay a while, I hope you like what you see, and if you do, kindly come again and please follow me~

I hope to repay each one of you who stops by, with a visit to your blogs to poke around and to say hi~

Thank you Tiffany and Heather for sharing my blogs link; as SITS featured blogger, I am simply tickled brown and pink~

Wishing you all much joy, serenity, peace and love. Thanks for stopping by my place, you're all as sacred as a turtledove.


Turtledove???

What the....???

*Below are some non-rhyming links to help you learn a little more about me and my little blog that could (a big thank you to Steven Anthony for adding the links for me!) and feel free to grab my blog buttons for 'The End Of The Rainbow' and '90 Days' on my sidebar--thanks again, SITS gals, for stopping by!:

Melissa @ Cellulite Investigation said...

Hi, Jo. In blogging about cellulite, a lot of my research involves fat (as you can imagine). Have you looked into essential fatty acid deficiency as the cause of anxiety/depression? Docs often like to skip right to the medications and forget that proper nutrition is the basis for healing. Okay, that's it for the unsolicited advice. Enjoy your SITS day!

We are trying to avoid bankruptcy...I had a major medical drama last year after my son was born and we were without insurance for 2wks - guess when I got sick? Yup. Anywho...I can relate to financial stress and just pray that we continue to make it through.

I have been there done that! Bankruptcy I mean. I was married to a man that put me in to debt. Now, I am trying to make my way back to a great credit score again. I am 5 1/2 years into it. I am doing well, my credit score is over 700 now. I learned a lot. It is okay to make mistakes as long as we learn from them.

Have a happy SITS day!

PJ said...

Happy SITS Day Jo!I really enjoyed your blog. ;You are a wonderful poet. You also have a nice looking son and beautiful daughter. I applaud you for your efforts in MS. My ex-sister-in-law had it. This was way back in the 70's and she was in a wheel chair then. I'm thinking she was also blind, but I can't remember. I don't even know if she is still alive or not. I haven't seen or heard from that family sense the late 70's. Anyway, I'm sure they didn't have the meds or help they have now for it, but I'm also sure that there is never enough money for the research that is needed.

Again, I applaud you.

God Bless You and yours,

PJ

Hi Jo! Happy SITS Day! I really enjoyed your blog. You are a very good poet. You have a very nice looking son and aq Beautiful daughter. I applaud your efforts for MS. I had an ex-sister-in-law that had MS back in the 70's. She was in a wheel chair, and if I'm not mistaken I think she was blind, but I'm not sure. I remember always seeing her in that wheelchair with dark glasses on. I don't know if shes still a live now or not. I haven't heard form that family since the late 1970's.

Anyway, I commend you for the selfless act of Volunteering for this cause.

God Bless you and yours,

PJ

Hi Jo--
I'm so glad to have found SITS because it lead me to your blog. I can relate to so much of your story (trouble finding a publisher, financial issues, etc.).
I was about $16,500 in credit card debt (and another $14k or so in student loans) as of Dec. 2006. I got involved in a debt management program and just used my tax refund to officially pay off my CC debt this month!
I know that I am very lucky to not have had to file bankruptcy and that was only because I had a really supportive (free room + board, etc.) father who didn't kick me to the curb or judge.
Keep up the great work and I will hopefully see you on my blog!

Happy SITS day to you! I'm a first grade teacher so the rhyming poem was perfect in my opinion! Can't wait to check out your blog!
