How did I start writing a blog?  It all started on one “Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.”  If you want to get a sampling of my life here at My Whit’s End  start with that terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.  If you want to meet the cast of characters here at My Whit’s End, just click on their name.  Rebecca (that’s me),  The Hunni, LBG (Little Big Guy), Sugar and Spice (AKA Scout and Eloise), and Little Man. This page is devoted to all the posts entitled, “She Said. . .”  Here are all the archives for all the posts about our crazy life.  Hopefully, it will be the place you sit down with a cup of coffee and feel like you are chatting with another woman who shares your ups and downs in living.  Consider it the Living Room of the blog.  And please feel free to add a comment or two.  I love hearing from you.

(Posts are organized with the most recent post at the top and going back in time.  So if you want to read a series of posts you may want to scroll down a bit.)

    OK. kind of late. but I feel like I am off the radar – and I was sorting through my emails finding ones to delete and happened on your journeys. There is no way I can keep pace with all of them, but WOW, you have a knack. So I just wanted to say. 1. I love that your hubby is open to unplanned stops. ( I will not expound on that one ). 2. your consideration when taking photos of people outside the family ( loved the coffee picture, that says a lot ) 3. much much more, but I need to get out of my robe ).
    Bless you and your family.
