Well, I’ve finally made it. I’m now old enough to dance around and sing along to Bruce Springsteen’s Glory Days and have it all actually make a little more sense in my life. I mean, I’m not thinking about a girl I used to know, I am a happily married woman, and I had absolutely nothing to do with Baseball (except one time when I was in grade school, I was gonna try out for the Baseball team, I have no idea who’s idea that was, but me and two of my Barrelassin cousins were gonna do it, so all of our mothers bought us matching jersey type shirts, balls, bats, and gloves so we could practice at home first. I recall the day I was gonna tie my shoe and as I stood up, I got nailed in the head with the bat as my cousin proceeded to hit the ball. I lived. But it was all just a stupid, stupid idea.) Anyway, the point is, I’ve always liked that song, and I used to sing it so proudly, even though, I was just a kid, and had yet to experience the glory days that Bruce sings about. I hadn’t even been to high school yet, but now that I have, and my glory days are slightly different than the ones Bruce sings about, I at least have enough days behind me now to reflect on some of my very own glory days.

My spirit animal is a shoe...what can I say? I have "Real Housewives" dreams but the life of "Lucy". My momma always says that I have Champagne taste and a beer pocketbook. In other words, I have a grand time on a little budget but I'm happy to make it work because I like both of those beverages and I'm a positive person. Some would call this a "lifestyle blog", I just call it Barrelassin'. I'm all over the place so keep up if you can (want) to. Everyone is welcome on this ride of mine but dream-killers will be pushed out of the car. I love Rock 'n' Roll, live music/concerts, traveling, and tripping up the stairs then telling you about it. I love my mom, Van Halen, Bethenny Frankel, big hair when I can afford it and $2 eyelashes. All of which I also love telling you about. I'm throwing my family in there, too, but my grown children are currently trying to force a dog on me so I didn't list them first. Enjoy, Barrelassers! View all posts by barrelassin
