Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
Hi, my name is Erica and I am a 40 year old mom of four children. I have Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Dyslexia and SPD.
My 12 year old son, Austin, has ADHD, SPD, and possible Asperger's Syndrome. We are still in the process of testing for Autism Spectrum Disorder(s).
I was born and raised in Vermont. So, needless to say, growing up in New England made me a huge Boston Red Sox fan! I can talk about baseball for hours.

My other passion is exotic birds. I could tell you about almost every exotic bird there is.
I have 7 birds...
1 Congo African Grey
1 Goffin Cockatoo
1 Jenday Conure
1 Green-Cheeked Conure
3 Pacific Parrotlets

I am also a graphic artist. You can see my art work at my site: Foggy Mama's Graphix.

I also love crossword puzzles, coffee, reading, learning Sign Language and anything about the medical field.
Sign Language seems to be an easier form of communication for me.
What is your blogging philosophy?
Blog what you know and the rest will follow.
I have been blogging since...

Yes, I am limited to what I can do most of the time. It’s not because I’m lazy. I would rather be out there running with my children, swimming a few laps in the pool, or writing a long letter to my loved ones without… Continue

Hi there from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time.
