A dorky mom of a dog who thinks I hung the moon and a few teenagers who don't but who love me anyway. Trying to get through every bit of this vast undertaking of being a decent human being and the person my dog thinks I am, I do what I can to make things better while trying not to embarrass myself too much. I like to think I fight for what is right for our children and those who affect them every day. Weapon of choice? My much loved and incredibly worn keyboard. I worry a bit too much about what people think and about how to keep my car from looking like a trash can. At the end of the day, what I hope all will say about me is that my heart was in the right place and that I tried, albeit with a touch of sarcasm and the sense of humor of a toddler. Be kind, everyone; it's the best thing to be! Monica blogs here.
