A New Day

I have been debating on whether or not to start my own blog for a while now. I kept telling myself to wait until something eventful happens: a pregnancy, a new year, a new job. Well 2 out of the 3 happened so I guess now is as good a time as any. So here goes!!

Hello World!! I'm Gladys and I'm a neo-blogger. I live in a sleepy little town in Tennessee with The Man and our two beautiful dogs. We are newly weds, October 2008, and we are new home buyers. We have a little house and a bit of property, lovingly called The Farm, where we spend our days.

The Farm

The Man is a science teacher at a local high school and I work at the local newspaper for the time being, my new job. We live a very simple and truly uneventful life but its ours.
The majority of my family lives very close: all 4 parents, maternal grandparents, and my aunt. I have one younger sister, Mabel, who truly is my soul mate. We are a very close family and spend a lot of time together. The remaining family members live in Northern Illinois, where I matriculated from.

The Man

So that's me, in a nut shell. I will, undoubtedly, reveal more of myself in due time. I'm sure after a while you will come to know me dearly. I say "you" like there are people actually reading this. I am positive though, after I inform my absolutely amazing step-mommie, Lois, that I have started my own blog, there will be at lease one or two people taking a glance over here.

Until then....


  1. yay! I'm your first follower! I'll put out the word to get you some readers...

    May I just say that The Man is quite a handsome looking fellow and not at all like Bill Nye the Science Guy!
