Welcome to The Ultimate Blog Party! #UBP13

Welcome to the Ultimate Blog Party! I'm so glad you've stopped by to say hello.

Ultimate Blog Party 2013

Please, come on in - you don't want to catch a cold out there in all that snow.

my deck (and the neighbours garage) last week
As you can see it is still winter here in Northern Ontario, Canada. We are all longing for Spring though so hopefully we won't have too much longer to wait.

Here, have a warm drink to warm you up...

Let me introduce you to my family. This is us...

My husband Doug and I have been married for 14 years this summer and he is the manager of our local food bank in our tiny town. This is what we looked like when we were practically children

My oldest son Aiden turns 11 at the end of this month (!!) and is creative, funny, intelligent and also has Autism and Oppositional Defiant Disorder. My younger son Owen is 9 and a wonderfully kind artist with a great imagination. He also has a general anxiety disorder. My daughter Olivia is 6 and loves all things girlie and pink. She is loving and smart and as far as we can tell  her only major "issue" is a tendency towards diva-ish-ness.

I have been blogging since October 2006 - all of Olivia's life. I started blogging when I was on bedrest with her!

I have blogged my way all the way through her life, through my 3rd bout of postpartum depression, through the entire process of getting Aiden diagnosed with Autism and parenting a special needs child, through several moves, through my husband being laid off from his job and being unemployed for a year, through all the multitude of ways we are incredibly blessed ... this blog is a veritable treasure trove of craziness I tell you.

Currently I am working as a Virtual Assistant. For those of you not familiar with what that is it basically means I am a sort of secretary from home. I personally specialize in social media so I take care of things like writing blog posts and tweets and facebook updates and newsletters for small businesses who don't have time to take care of it themselves. It is a job perfectly suited to me since I am rather addicted to social media and I need to work from home so I can be available at any time for the special needs of my kids.

I think that about sums it up for me. Please say hello to me on twitter as well :)

I hope you enjoy the rest of the party - there are so many wonderful blogs out there to visit.
