I consider myself an optimistic realist.

I am the single mom of two, now grown, children and one fantastic Shihpoo who just happens to be the namesake of my blog.

Life has rarely been easy but I believe it is most often what you make of it.

I want to share my insight, experience, life stories and dreams with everyone and hopefully inspire a few along the way.

Pull on in and park it for awhile and get ready for a Tune-Up.

I love my readers and welcome your feedback and suggestions.  Please feel free to leave comments below my posts or use my Contact Me  page to tell me what I’m doing right or what I can improve on.
