Who I Am…

I’m Cla17498498_1476981675656703_4333999583968785355_nire. And, I am a serial expat.

I am an American living abroad…Currently in Johannesburg, South Africa. I feel like I’m in the beginning stages of chronic expatism. Is that a word? If not…call Webster because it is now. I’ve also lived in Brussels, Belgium; Geneva, Switzerland; and Mexico City, Mexico too.

I like to write, but I’m not a “writer”. I didn’t major in English during college, but I do try to use proper grammar. I’m a cynic. I can’t help myself. Love me or hate me, it’s who I am. I like to swear. Sometimes too much, but I’m learning to keep it in check…most of the time. So, try not to be offended…we’re not trying to solve world peace here.

I love my family (the hubs and two girls) and friends fiercely…They are what make me tick. They are also what drive me bat shit crazy sometimes too.  Oh, and I can’t forget my dogs…Chica (The Boxer) and Paco (The Mexican Mutt).  They are my protectors, my heating blanket, and my constant companions.

The trials and tribulations of being a wife, mother and dog owner. This is my life. It’s not always pretty, but sometimes it’s pretty damn funny. The world is my home…So, come in and have a seat.
