Who Am I?

Since this is a new blog for me, I thought I’d write a post for anyone who just might be interested in following me.  (Which I would SO LOVE by the way!) 

Obviously I just turned 40, like 2 weeks ago.  I also made a huge change in my life and have been trying to make the most of it.

I have three children, SweetPea who is 13, THE BOY who is 11, and Daisy who is 10. 

I love birds, flowers, trees and nature in general, so I will be posting about that.

I also love to cook new recipes and participate in Menu Plan Monday most weeks.

I’m an avid reader and plan to post more book reviews.  I read mostly historical fiction, Christian fiction, classics, and the occasional mystery/horror book.

I’m trying to lose weight, so I will probably complain – uh I mean DISCUSS exercise, weight loss, etc.

I am a fan of television – namely Biggest Loser, Glee, Clean House, What Not to Wear, Dr. Who, My Big Life (Kirstie Alley) Ruby, and anything that starts with CSI.  I don’t watch regularly, but I also like House, Dancing with the Stars, Grey’s Anatomy, Trauma, and Mercy. 

I LOVE NETFLIX!  I have Netflix set up through our Wii system and we watch lots of great tv series, movies, etc.  I’m really in to Dr. Who season 1 right now.  SweetPea has discovered Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel – she is addicted!

I talk daily walks – sometimes alone, sometimes with the kids.  We visit lots of parks to keep it interesting.  We bird watch while walking and also look for things to keep in our “Nature Jar” – feathers, eggs, bones, rocks, etc.

I homeschool Daisy.  She is in 4th grade and this has worked for us for many years.  I have another blog dedicated to this, but I’m sure I’ll be bringing it up here as well.

I work about 15 hours per week doing bookkeeping for a medical practice – Daisy goes with me and has her own school area there.  I work another 20 hours a week doing medical transcription at home – which I really love. 

Big girl or not, I love fashion and subscribe to several fashion blogs.  I love makeup, jewelry, perfume, lotions, potions, etc.

Other things I may (or may not?) blog about:



Random photos

Travel (we are doing a historical vacation this summer! Colonial Williamsburg, Liberty Bell, Washington DC, Plymouth Rock, etc)

Writing (I love to write but don’t do much of it anymore – I’d like to change that, but I am already at the computer much of the time between work and FB!)

Current events


Other reviews

Ok, I think that about covers it!  Me in a nutshell.  If you read all of this – you are just about the awesomest person ever.  If you skimmed, hey, that’s pretty awesome too. 

I hope you will subscribe to my blog or at least come back and visit me again!

Please comment!

(Am I starting to sound desperate?)

Sherry – 40 and daring to change…


  1. It's so nice to meet you and thank you for coming by my blog.

    I turned 40 last summer, but I am having redo next month due to our family having many problems last year. My wonderful hubs decided that I get to turn 40 again.

    I have two boys 13 and 7 and I work from home.

    I have 3 blogs you can visit me at (you visited that one)

  2. So glad I found your blog! I'm just turned 39 and my kids are right about your ages, almost 13, 11 and 8. I homeschool all 3 of my kids through K12 and they love it! I'm fairly new to the blogging world and am still trying to figure a lot of stuff out. I look forward to many good recipes from you.

  3. Hi! It sounds like we have a lot in common (reading, food, etc.), although I have to admit, I still haven't turned the big 3-0 yet. I look forward to reading your blog and sharing lots! Jen
