the sheri behind the bloggins

I can't think of a great way to start this "about me" off so let's just go with this: the water I am currently drinking tastes like soap.

There. Broke the ice. 

I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt and assuming it's nice to meet you, I'm Sheri. Born in 1977, married to my husband (clearly) and new mama to miss Scarlett June. I also have an adorable pain in the ass Shepherd/Akita mix named Brody (after Chief Brody in JAWS, not Brody from The Hills).

A few things you should know about me:
*I'm sorta neurotic about my home being clean and organized at all times. I have made it my life's work to find cute storage options to conceal every item that looks like "clutter". I even have a little wooden box that houses my chapstick and eyedrops. (Yes, I'm Paul Pfeiffer). My husband loves having to put his PS3 controllers in a wicker basket.(I love sarcasm).

*If my toilet paper holder (that holds three rolls) has less than three rolls in it at any given time I will flip a table over. In fact, I feel most comfortable when there are four rolls in it.

*I drive a 13 year old car. Deal with it. 

*I always build my outfit around my shoes. 

*I watch Roseanne reruns almost daily. I have seen them a hundred times over and will watch them until I am no longer on this planet. 

*My biggest fear is loss... of any kind but weight.

*I own a pair of shoes that I call "Church Ladies" because they are hideous, chunky, clunky -not unlike orthopedics- brown, thick-soled, ridiculously comfortable shoes that a 'woman of the cloth' may possibly enjoy. I have had them for just about ten years and they've even been to a cobbler. I refuse to chuck them but I am too ashamed to wear them.

* My kitchen and dining room each have more than one light-switch - so one is always incorrect. I am adamant about which one that is. In the kitchen the "wrong" one has to be the one near the door and in the dining room it has to be the one near the deck slider. I can't handle it being any other way. My husband just loves that about me.

*I have an irrational fear of insects. I will have to put on a brave face for Scarlett but it's bound to send me to the hospital. 

*If I could I would spend all day everyday reading and writing blogs. I never realized what an amazing outlet a personal blog could be. Someone a few years back urged me to start one and ever since I've just been so happy to have it. I may not have many readers/followers, I might not post on interesting topics and current events, I don't have the freedom or the inspiration to write daily - I just do it for myself when I feel like it - and I just hope that if people read it, they enjoy it. 

That all being said - you are welcome to peruse my blarchive (blog archive) and hopefully find something you like. Happy to have you here.

Cheers to your health!
