The Sandwich Generation encompasses those of us, about 1 in every 8 Americans, who are both raising kids and caring for aging parents. In my case, I’m raising a teenager and a special needs pre-teen while caring long distance for a parent with Alzheimers. And in the middle of it all, I manage my own bipolar disorder. Translation: my life is full of stress. And what better reason to start a blog?
And now for the fun stuff. Things I love: coffee, tattoos, beer, books, music, and the beach. Things I hate: intolerance of any kind, scotch, snakes, the color yellow, egotism, and being cold. I’m a Southern girl in my mid 40’s, I live for basketball season, and I try to put a home cooked meal on the table at least four nights a week. Come on, people, no one’s perfect.
