My very first post!

One might think that I could come up with a better title for my first post than that huh? Well, being the indecisive chick that I am, it took me hours to find the perfect design and template for this here new blog and  I'm all out of creativity at the moment. It's still not perfect, but we'll work on that. This is just a quick hello to say welcome and let ya know a little bit about me.

So without further ado, HELLO! I'm Sheila. I am a wannabe author, I have one million and two stories floating around in my noggin. About half of them are on paper, okay okay about 2 of them are on paper. The rest are waiting around up there, wanting out. I plan to use this blog to journal my journey (ha) of becoming a published author and to review all the amazing books that are out there waiting for me to get my hands on them.

I love reading, I love being able to pick up a book and escape the madness that is my life, even if it is only in 5 minute increments, I don't think I could go a day without reading. I can't say that I have a favorite author, or even a favorite book. It's just not fair to put a favorite label on just one book. I can always find something that I love about every book I read, even if it takes me a year to read it. Just simply knowing that someone created a story and characters, and made them all work together is amazing to me.

When I say my life is madness I'm not saying my life isn't amazing, it really is. I have a 6 year old little girl, and a 2 year old little boy. They are both super spoiled and totally loveable. My daughter is a little spitfire, she can outwit just about anybody, including me some days and I love the way she don't let anyone put her down. At 6 years old, that's an amazing quality, one that I hope she keeps forever. My son is a big Momma's Boy, and I hope he is forever. He's very loving in the morning time and very ornery every other minute of the day.  I couldn't picture life without them. Then, there is my husband. My oh so VERY loud and hardworking husband. I am a blessed woman.

Well, enough about me. If I keep going, I just might scare any potential followers off. I've been told that I am a random moment, so if you decide to follow (which will in turn give you my undying love and appreciation :)) then be prepared for my randomness! Feel free to leave a comment with a link to your blog and I will check you out. Thanks for reading!

Hi Sheila! Thanks for stopping over at my site. I see you have a goal of 30 books this year. I don't even know if I'll make that! Before I had kids, I read 70+ books a year while I was attending university classes full time and working part time. Now that I had two back to back . . . Good luck and I hope you make your goal!
