All About Me


So, who am I? Let’s see…..

I am a devoted wife to J and mom to our two boys, G (age 12) and P (who is 6 and has autism). I used to be a RN many moons ago and left the profession after burying my feelings of burnout in pain meds. I have, for the most part, been a stay at home mom for the last 7 years. I had gastric bypass surgery nearly six years ago and have lost more weight than what I currently weigh now. I know. It blows my mind too. I’ve gone from a size 26 to a comfy 8. I need skin surgery desperately, but it’s not really a priority right now. I want to go back to school, but P requires alot of time. I work part-time for fun money at a local burger joint as a carhop; it keeps me sane, allows me to get out of the house, provides me with zero stress, and, to be honest….it’s fun.

I live in the desert southwest and like it here despite being a born and raised southern girl. I cuss like a sailor, love cooking, adore traveling, and above all, I like to laugh. I don’t enjoy bullshit, people with poor table manners, and folks that constantly try and sell me stuff.

I started this blog as [SNORT] which was my user name on another forum. 6 years ago the old [SNORT] was alive and well. Now? Her essence still exists, but I’m so fucking tired and over so much shit. Alot of the anger is gone, but the wit and snark is still there to a degree. I’m in a different place in my life. It feels good to be here. If anybody still reads this I hope you enjoy my journey and musings.

  1. Hee hee – I wanted to email you but couldn’t find an address, so this had to do. Great to finally be in touch with you. 🙂

  2. I just started reading your blog. I have read your posts at MWOP, and such great things have been said about your blog, so I had to check it out myself. I find your honesty refreshing and your sense of humor hilarious. Your blog is now bookmarked, and I will visit regularly because I enjoy your writing, tales, stories, humor, truth, and swear words:) Keep up the good work!

      • I would like your email address, as I noted you drink a lot, a lot of Crystal Lite, and I have scads of single serving ones in lemonade, orange, raspberry, and peach tea (NOT expired). If you would like them I will send them to you. I am on that other site, and I have noticed how kind you are, and I cheer you on from afar.

  3. Have you seen the picture (on facebook) circulating of a wolf holding a sheep puppet on his hand (he’s hiding behind a podium), and the puppet is delivering a speech to a group of sheep? It’s titled “State of the Union Address”, but my GAWD, someone needs to edit it and re-title it as a MckConvention Address or something more clever than that. How can I send you the picture?

  4. Your latest pix are incredible. I love following your journey! Stay strong. I have been out of town and away from internet. What has happened to our favorite train wreck? I am unable to pull up Mckmama Truths.
