Here we go again…
Back again with yet another attempt at blogging. I have no idea how long it will last this time. Probably depends on how bored I get with blogging or how bored I get with my life in general.
Anyway, if you’re reading this, you’re probably someone who already knows me. But in case you stumbled on my blog by accident, here’s an introduction for you.
In case you couldn’t tell by the title of the blog, my name is April. I’m 40-something years old and living in the Midwest (again) with my teenage daughter. My middle child lives nearby and my oldest lives a few hours away with her husband and my grandkids. I’ve got a cat that I kinda don’t like, a rescue poodle that is a puppy mill survivor so she’s both strong but fragile, and a bulldog that’s actually my granddog but he’s here a lot.
Things I like: animals, music, books, movies…but doesn’t everyone? Specifically, I like dogs and otters, I love Pink Floyd, my favorite author is Chuck Palahniuk, and Wonder Woman is my favorite movie. (I’m basically kind of obsessed with Wonder Woman in general.) Things I do NOT like: Donald Trump, birds, and bigots. There’s a lot more but that’ll all come out in my posts eventually.
So why is it called Aprilpalooza? The April part is obvious. The -palooza part is because this is basically just a little bit of everything, a “festival” of posts about parenting as a single mom, my opinions on politics, whatever music and movies I’m into at the moment…just my life in general.
