Who is Merriell and What is This Blog Thingy Anyway?

Hi! I am so thrilled to be blogging!

I am 44 years old now, but do not feel like it.  I had been stuck in a job for YEARS that I absolutely hated. It drained me, and made me not like myself or my life. I was depressed, overweight (still working on that) cranky and angry a lot of the time.
I came to a point where a CHANGE had to be made.

I took a big leap of faith and quit my full time- steady- good paying- benefit giving job. This blog is to express what I have gone through and what I am doing now and plan for the future. How my life has changed already and my feelings about life now. The world has opened up to me!

My family is the most important thing in the world to me. And that includes my parents and my sister. We are all very close. I am married to a wonderful supportive husband, and have 3 great healthy kids. Danielle is 24 and happily married to a great guy, Jeremy is 16 and in the middle of his high school days, and Hailey is 10 and our tomboy- and I wouldn’t have it any other way. More to come about all of them.

I have many interests, maybe you share some of the same. I love home decorating (although don’t come over, I’m not done yet!). I love to work in my yard, my hubby and I designed our front yard ourselves. I love FLOWERS. I love art about flowers, I love the smell of flowers, I love growing flowers, arranging flowers, the list goes on. I actually have a certificate in floral design I earned at Shasta College. I have done the flowers for several weddings of our friends and family. Oh and prom flowers, those are fun. I love music, all different kinds. I find it uplifts me like nothing else can. That is part of the reason I love my new found interest Zumba. I can dance on and on to those Zumba songs they play in class. I have a baby grand piano and an organ in my small living room. I can play, but rarely do. I haven’t figured out why yet. I gotta work on that. I like to read, but I’m not as fast as my mom and daughter- they read scary fast! I like to scrapbook, but never do. I feel a blog coming on about that. I am very into the political scene, but want to stay away from that topic, for now anyway.  And last, I’m a sucker for a good sci fi movie. (some favorites are; Star Wars, Planet of the Apes, Terminator, E.T., Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind)

So that is a picture of me and my life at this very moment. My goal is to provide some helpful information and entertainment, hopefully in the form of laughter,  for others along this journey of blogging.

Thanks for reading!   Merriell

    Change is always scary and especially when it’s something that huge, but when it’s done for your well being, it’s so worth it isn’t it?

    I can’t wait to hear more about what you’re doing and follow along on your journey :)
