Tardy to the party as usual...

I just read about the Ultimate Blog Party and thought it was a cute idea so I hopped on the bandwagon as it gives me something to do as I sip my wine and outline my next two chapters for school. Naturally I should be doing more reading and less blog party but whatever...

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

So here is my intro post - which comes at a good time since my blog is still brand new and I never really put much effort into introductions until right this second.

Well, I'm Sandi and I'm 27. I am currently stuck in the hellhole know as Northern New Jersey. I keep moving away, and this black hole keeps sucking me back in. I've got two children, K and H, and a great dane:

I also don't own a camera, so be prepared for shitty cellphone pics.

I also make really stupid faces in pictures

I started this blog to show people what being a bipolar parent is *really* like, as there is so much stigma it's ridiculous. I also use this as a sort of self-therapy. Common topics I whine about are being bipolar, stupid crap people say to you when you are bipolar, my miscarriages, and my recent go-round with cervical cancer and the resulting hysterectomy. Exciting, right? I also go on and on about my fiance. He was in the Air Force for a zillion years and has seven flavors of PTSD and I think our crazy compliments each other nicely so I keep him around.

I posted this picture for no other reason than I love it.

Ta ta for now, back to outlining.


  1. Cutie kids and cutie dog. I'm sure you're Jerseylicious! *wink

    Hi there. Greetings from Miami, FL. I'm stopping by to toss confetti, pull up a virtual chair and party with you. Let's have some fun!

    I've got my Ultimate Blog Party 2010 post up at Dayngrous Discourse. Plus, I've got my first giveaway too. I hope you'll surf on over and say hello.

    It's you're the tweetin' kind, I'm @Dayngr on twitter.

  2. Stopping by from the UBP10. I'm sorry about your miscarriages; I had one myself in December of 07. You have a beeauutiful family. My husband wants a great dane but I told him NO because we live in an apartment, ha ha. Maybe one day when we finally get into a house!!!

  3. We live in an apartment! Danes are actually great apartment dogs because they tend to just loaf around. Agnes is a fixture on the couch all day but she loves her walks.

  4. Hey! Stopping by for the party! Those girls are adorable, (the dog too) and the pictures are so cute! I think you're beautiful, fyi-silly face or not!

    If you'd like to stop by for the party over at my place, please feel free to do so here!

  5. Love your honesty! Have at the Blog Party!!

  6. Love this party! :) Your dog is gorgeous! And I gotta agree with you about NJ ... you poor dear! ;) Stopping by from the UBP10! :)
