I am the overanxious ADD mother of two rather interesting children, wife of one Evil Genius, writer, blogger, and dreamer. The name of my blog actually has very little to do with the song “The Sadder But Wiser Girl”. I’m not actually sad, and sometimes I am wise, depending on the situation. The title refers to the experiences in my life: I may be sadder for having had them (such as blowing a lot of money on a career that didn’t pan out), but I am hopefully a little wiser as I go through my life.
The Cast of Characters-a who’s who of those mentioned in my blog. Just in case you were wondering who I’m talking about.
My Husband: Evil Genius
Mechanical Engineer who’s one lab experiment away from being a Super Villain. Tall, not so dark, and handsome. He may take over the world some day (along with my daughter) but what he really would like is a good night’s sleep.
My Son: The Professor
Freakishly smart eight year old who someday very soon may be discovering new things in a laboratory near you. Sheldon Cooper, minus the germ phobia. Like me, he has ADD, among some other interesting issues. Adorable. Never stops talking or reading stuff.
My Daughter: Princess Whatever We Are Calling Her That Day
An extremely strong-willed and intelligent five year old who may someday rule the world. At least in her mind. She often reminds me of DW from Arthur. But don’t call her that, it makes her mad.
The Cat: Rogue (AKA Antisocial Kitty)
She’s cute, she’s cuddly, she hides all day. Occasionally she even graces us with her presence.
The Dog: Neo
He’s big, cute, a bull in a china shop, not too bright, but very sweet and loveable.
The Other Kitty: James Tiberius Kat
Our brand new kitty, a work in progress.
I have nominated you for the Sunshine Award. Click on the link http://wp.me/p2Ce06-4X or visit my blog to find out the details.
If I could figure out how to put the links in my blog, I will certainly do this. This is the one thing I just can’t seem to get work! Thank you for the nomination!
Hi, Sarah! I have nominated you for the Liebster Blog Award. 🙂 To accept the award, visit this post: http://atlantamomofthree.wordpress.com/2012/11/27/blog-awards/ Love your blog!
Aw thanks! I got an award from Momtimes4 today too! I can’t think of 7 things about myself. Ack! 😉
Foods you like? Movies you hated? Do you have weird habits? C’mon, I know you’re creative!!
I finally got it! Getting there with the rest but having a hard time because most of the blogs I follow have a ton of followers, like waaaaaay more than 200. Time to find some new blogs to follow! 🙂
Good reason to find new blogs, if you ask me! 😀
I really appreciate your blog, so I nominated you for the Liebster Award!
Oh boy! Thank you! I will probably wait a little bit before I do anything with it since I had a hard time coming up with all the stuff for the one yesterday! Thank you though! 😀
You are very welcome 🙂
You could always modify the rules to work for you too…
Are we allowed to do that? 😀 Guess I’ll have to look into it!
I’ve never heard of anyone being issued tickets or going to jail for it, if that’s what you’re wondering, lol. Keep the rules for others so that moving forward, the general theme stays the same, but modify them for yourself, and just say, “this is all I have time for!”
You forgot to mention you leave kick, I mean awesome comments!
Kick-butt comments. Exactly.
i suck: i need more technical help from you (don’t barf). how did you get all the blogs you’re following, including non WP blogs on your “blog roll”? i want to cry i’m so daft about this stuff. which brings me to another existential quandary: you’re just a vowel away from insulting someone when you call them daft instead of deft.
Let’s do this… do you have a place you can do chat, like Facebook or Google or something like that? Maybe we can link up later tonight and I can tell you where to go. I tried starting a message to explain it and it’s gonna be reeeeeeeallly long.
In other news, if it makes you feel any better, I spent a ton of time on google and also through trial and error trying to figure all of this stuff out. However, being an unemployed bum married to a man who works a zillion hours a week and then games on top of it, I could afford the humungous time suck it took to do it. You won’t have to be married to Google like I was! I will help!
I’ll give you a hint in the meantime though, you start at the “Links” tab on the left hand side of your dashboard screen! 😀
ok. yes, we can chat, but i’ll try to figure it out more before subjecting you to the suckhole. i’ll bug you again if i need you. I NEED… I NEED… thanks!
Happy to help. Especially since you ask nicely instead of screaming bloody murder when you need help like my 4 year old. “Moooooommmmmmmmmmmmmy!” I think she’s being murdered, and it’s just a boxelder bug on her floor, looking at her. “It’s looking at me! KILL IT!”
what the what is a boxelder bug?!? sounds SCAWY.
World’s dumbest bugs.
They are creepy. They are also incredibly stupid. And they are worse than ladybugs. They are everywhere here in Iowa certain times of the year. Harmless, but annoying!
I just sent you your very own tutorial in an email… let me know if it helps. Again I don’t do things like I should, but it works for me, and that’s all that matters!
So did you get it to work?
ummm… not yet. i’m wrapping up a post for peevish penman (i’m a contributor for them) and then i’m gonna go for it. i will absolutely report back to you. i wrote back… answers were in red. i really appreciate your help!
Yes I just got done reading it. 🙂 I am happy to help!
I have nominated you for “Blogger of the Year 2012” award, please go here for all the info: http://wp.me/p2Ce06-hy
Oh wow, me? Really? Well hey, I will go check it out. Thank you so much!
Hi there I found you through the Atlantamom’s blog, Check out my New year, New challenger blog.. http://journey2dfuture.wordpress.com/2012/12/28/a-new-year-a-new-challenge-whos-in/
Well hello there! 🙂
I have nominated you for the Sunshine award! To find out more, please visit this post: http://atlantamomofthree.wordpress.com/2013/02/06/sunshine-award/
Thank you! I’ll try to take a look at it tonight! 🙂 XO
No hurry, I know how busy you must be now. 🙂
I totally love how you did a cast of characters for yourself. You get to live out the “who would play me in a movie” fantasy! I would probably pick RD Jr. for my husband too.
He’s probably a lot more coherent than my husband is these days!
Wow how cool that you get to be an Avenger to play you in real life.
I’m cool like that! HA HA!
Pleasure to meet you, SBWG. :0)
I was (mis) diagnosed with a gazillion disorders as an adult- but I know now that I had ADD and OCD growing up. (Severely.) After I grew up, I realized that there’s an actual term for people like us (“us” as in- you and I- not “us” as in split-personality- heh..) they call us “artists”. [wink]
Hey, all of the artists I know are as anti-social and as bizarre as I am.
Regardless, I do understand you (and your brain) very well.
Feel free to read my BIO if you like.
I think you might relate.
HA! I will go over and take a look!
Happy Mother’s Day. :0)
Hi Sarah! Dropping by to let you know I may have nominated you for a bloggy award. Hope you can check it out 🙂
L-O-V-E it! Thank you!
