My Life Story {in 250 words?!?}

It has been too long since I have consistently blogged over here.  When you "professionally" (I use this term loosely) blog at 2 places and free lance at 3 others, it seems the last thing you want to do is write for yourself.
Even though it is the easiest and most rewarding. 
So I am going to attempt to blog every day in May.  Just write and get back into doing what I loved. 
May 1st - Your life story in 250 words.

I was born in Austin, Texas and by the time I was 18, I had lived in 22 different homes and attended 13 different schools.  So the question I always get is, "Were your parents in the military?"
"No.  They were gypsy - wannabes."
In all seriousness, all that moving made me who I am today.  I am confident, outgoing, head-strong, and LOVE change.  Had I not been forced to constantly make new friends, I would never have learned how to speak my mind in a room full of strangers.  Had I not lived in 3 different states as a child, I never would have discovered my passion for travel.  Had I not graduated high school in Nevada, I never would have met my husband.
I married my sweetheart when I was 21.  We will celebrate 18 years this summer.  We have 3 amazing children who are the light of our lives.  Our days are filled with homework, soccer, traveling, bickering (they are pre-teen siblings after all) and struggling with what to cook for dinner......and I wouldn't change it for the world.
I worked full-time in the pharmaceutical industry for 13 years, working hard to climb up the corporate ladder, thinking I was in it forever.  Then God made a BIG change in my life ~ I was laid off with 30,000 of my closest friends ~ and I was afforded the time to be a "SAHM" - something I thought I'd never be.  And I love it.  It has given me the time to raise my little man, volunteer at the kids' school, and start writing (remember, I "blog professionally").  
I turn 40 in eight months.  I am so very happy with my life and so very blessed to be able to say that.  ANd though I have accomplished much in my first 40 - Great marriage, 3 kids, own my own business, been on a reality TV show (seriously), and have tons of amazing friends and family -  I have even BIGGER goals for the next 40.

Bring it on.

I am really enjoying the theme/design of your site. Do you ever
run into any web browser compatibility problems? A small number of
my blog audience have complained about my
website not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome.
Do you have any solutions to help fix this issue?

I've been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.

Fantastic blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
I'm planning to start my own website soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go
for a paid option? There are so many options out there
that I'm completely overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Cheers!

Please let me know if you're looking for a article author for your site. You have some really great posts and I think I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I'd
really like to write some articles for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine.
Please blast me an email if interested. Cheers!
