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~
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.
*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!:
Peace and serenity,
