Hi! I’m Kelly, and this is my blog. Welcome if you’re reading this! Some of you may know me as PinKy from my LiveJournal fangrrl persona. I wanted a place to work through some of the things that I seem to be going through here at the Urban Farmhouse. I’m one of those people who chats to others in the grocery store, on the playground with my kids, etc and when I find a kindred spirit and strike up a friendship I have a tendency to erroneously, blindly assume that others naturally share my views/interests/hobbies in other things because we already have so much in common! Most of the time I am unfortunately wrong. This usually happens after I grandly put my foot in my mouth with some unintentional, opinionated, blanket statement. So, I generally feel like I have a lot of acquaintances, some friends, a few GOOD friends, but not many others who really “get” me. Anyone out there who fits my niche? Hmm….. Anyway, as I said, I’m a former “fan-grrl” of various fandoms – mostly Harry Potter, Star Trek, Sherlock Holmes, Battlestar Galactica. I know, I know, my geeky side is showing. I actually still moderate a couple of fandom communities over at Livejournal.com if you’re over that way. The Tom Felton LJ Fan Club (Draco Malfoy from Harry Potter) and Meet_n_Greet05 which is a Burning Man community for folks wanting to make connections with others before heading out to the desert. (what’s Burning Man?? Google it. I’ll post on it more later.) I mostly post about my family, children (3 mons-ners as my daughter would say), autism (my oldest child), anxiety disorders (me!). So….. I think that’s about it for today. I have finally just answered a bunch of e-mails that I have owed my friends, I have updated this blog and now I’m going to take a deep breath and see what tomorrow brings.
