Ok, just to get this straight first thing, I am not one of those people chasing movie stars or hotel heiresses to get the latest scoop or picture or anything of the sort. I mean, I live in the midwest after all. When is the last time anyone famous prowled around the midwest? I guess you could count George Clooney when he was here in St. Louis for the filming for “Up in the Air” but see, I wasnt even stalking him trying to get pictures. Then there’s Nelly, he’s from the area but I dont think me and Nelly hang at the same places. Although I do know someone who met Nelly’s mom! (Does that count? No? I didnt think so.) So, thats not where the nickname ‘Mamarazzi’ came from.
It actually came from one of my kids. I have 2 step daughters who each gave us 2 grandchildren, and I have 2 daughters, one in college, the other in high school. Oh, and a Rottweiller named Rocko. Basically, I almost always have my camera in hand and so the kids jokingly named me the Mamarazzi.
I have many interests. I’m not joking. I believe I have adult A.D.D., I dont tend to stay with any one thing very long. That is one reason I’m starting this blog. It gives me an outlet for my many interests, writing, photography, cooking (although I’m not a fan of complicated stuff), pets & Nature, and some other interests I plan on evolving into this site as time goes by.
I try my best to be a positive, upbeat person who tries to avoid drama. But, having said that, I, just like everyone else, need to vent occassionally. So although rare, you may see an occassional vent, because I know its human and you may be able to relate but in the end, we’ll try to see the lighter side of things, you know…the positive side.
