Living large in Fatopia.

It’s Time

IMG_20131224_153629On February 28th one of my biggest fears came to pass... our home caught fire. After years of paying faithfully every month for home owner’s insurance, we had just moved into a different trailer and hadn’t taken out a new policy. We lost almost everything, but everyone made it out safely and that’s what counts. Stuff can be replaced, people cannot.

I learned as a small child what it’s like to go through a house fire without insurance, it’s not fun at all. It took us a couple of years to come back from that one. Now it’s time for my family to do it again, this time with me at the head of things.

A new life deserves a new blog, so here we are. It’s time.

I’ll be moving everything from the charred remains of my previous home to this one, and I’ll be moving everything from my old site to this one as well. It’s funny how life online imitates real life sometimes. Come along for the ride as The Original Fat Chick rises like a phoenix from the ashes.


Talk to me. I don't bite ... too hard ;-)
