Oh hey! I’m Kim. This is my blog. I started it as a way to trick myself into writing, so that, ummm, maybe I would stop avoiding my brilliant writing career. You know, the brilliant writing career I was meant to have handed to me on a silver platter without having to work for it, especially by actually writing….
It worked! I started writing!
And now I use my blog to continue avoiding my brilliant writing career (“I have no time to work on a novel, on account of my busy blogging schedule!”) naturally.
When I started the blog- in early 2011 – I was practicing law and I lived in Lakewood, Colorado with my artistic genius mother (with great hair!) and my awesome son.
A lot has changed since then.
My mom’s ovarian cancer metastasized to her brain and suddenly I became her full-time caregiver (HELLO issues…). I closed my law practice. Entered into a potentially ill-advised Moratorium on dating/sex. My son graduated from High School and started COLLEGE. We moved out of our house. We went to Mom’s house in Puerto Morelos, MX. We took a midnight Jet ICU flight back to Tampa, FL. My mom died.
It’s been super-fun.
Just kidding, it totally sucked. But I wrote about it all and somehow some cool people on the internet found me and started reading and laughing and crying with me.
That part has been fucking amazing.
Oh yes, I cuss. It’s weird because I don’t cuss (much) out loud, but I can get like a drunk sailor (not that I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting one…)(Oh wait, I totally did date a Navy guy (or two)… and, as I recall, they didn’t really cuss that much, even when drunk, although I was usually the only one drinking, which, in hindsight, might have been why those relationships didn’t work out…) when I write.
What I’m trying to say is that my brain has a potty mouth.
Now I’m living in Puerto Morelos, Mexico and I’m not sure if it’s temporary or not. I came here to deal with my Mom’s memorial service, house, etc. and haven’t been able to leave just yet. Stay tuned.
