Its My SITS DAY!!!!!

Me!!!
OMG!!!! Its finally arrived. The day when all my SITS Sistas are coming to visit. And that means I have company coming. I hope I did everything I wanted to do to prepare.
  • Every thing clean and shiny...check.
  • Dirty laundry hidden...check.
  • Lipstick wiped off milk jug...check.
  • "Pseudo" step-kids washed and threatened to be polite or else...check. 
  • Trip to the liquor store...double check.
Welcome, my name is Michael (I prefer MJ) and I am a girl...have I already said that? I am always saying that...its the story of my life. 

The BF fixing things.
I want to invite you to make yourself comfortable and enjoy a cookie and a cocktail...may I suggest my signature drink The Sweet MJ (I even make an alcohol free version if you prefer).

Really quick a little bit about myself. I am in my late 30s (when did that happen), I live with my BF, his 2 kids (my "psedeo" step-kids) 3 dogs and a cat. I started blogging in 2010 to share my mad cap adventures with friends and family. Soon I started blogging about my bizarre thoughts and about my relationship with The BF and family. Please don't take anything I write too serious; I am mostly tongue in cheek and I am always looking for the humor in everything. After all, if you can't laugh at your self you can't laugh with others.

If you are like me and live to read books please check out my second blog: A Girl Named Michael Reads a Book.

To learn more check out my about me pagemy favorite posts page and my how we met page.

I hope you have a nice time here today. Please feel free to look around and tell me about yourself.

    1. Alison I have found that if you had 7up to some drink mixes instead of alcohol you still get a pretty good drink.

  8. Happy SITS Day! Gotta love a girl who hides the dirty laundry. I actually have none right now... I did 5 loads yesterday and actually got them all folded and put away along with the 5 loads I'd done throughout the week that were sitting in a wrinkled heap in the corner of the living room... it was a Sunday night miracle!

    Happy SITS day. My name's Lorna and I spent most of my life before I moved to Scotland saying, 'No, it's not Laura.' I understand some of your frustration!

  23. Your blog put a smile on my face. I grew up with three sisters Erin, Shannon and Kelly. I was always having to explain they were all girls and a brother Robin. Mine was the only name that was definitely girly. So your the second person I've heard of that is a girl named Michael. The first being the actress Michael Learned but I am not sure how she spells it.

    Enjoy your wonderful SITS Day! Have a blast :)

    Replies
    1. I have a lot but no other signature drinks. My rule of thumb for nonalcoholic drinks is if its a fruity cocktail dont add alcohol just add 7up instead. But now I am thinking I need to create some more.
