My family.... we are a unique group of people. There really isn't much more to say then that. Wow that would make this blog really short huh? Ok.. ok I lied. .there is alot to say, some of it is so funny you will be in stitches, some of it is sad and you will reach for kleenexes, but in the end what you will read is my life, for better or worse, in sickness and health and all that jazz.
Now where to begin... first of all let's start with an introduction. Who are you and why are you reading my blog? Sorry.. wrong direction, its the mom in me. I am Patricia Marie Claassen Glover Mapes, my parents are Walter and Elizabeth (Walt and Betty to be less formal) and I have four brothers.. the eccentric Walter III, the Twins Gregory and David, and the ever moving Micheal. (ok again less formal Rip, Gregg, David and Mike). We have spouses and former spouses..and children galore. Let's start with me... I was married to GW (no thats not his real name.. he's Gordon Warner) together we had Matthew (he passed away 20 hours after he was born), then Stephanie, Daniel, Andrew, and Mary. (Steph, Danny, AJ, Mary) .. we divorced....and I got married to Chuck together we have David and Emily. Yes, I am done. . Yes I do own a TV.. and Yes I also know what causes it. (it just took me a LONG time to figure it out) Gregg was married to Dena but they got divorced as well, they have five children, Mark, Keith, Kristina, Joshua and Jonathan. Mike is married to Dana and they have Caleb.
Ok still with me? Good! Now you have met the cast of characters for the story, keep in mind more people will make appearances but for now these are the main characters, I hope you're ready because there will be a quiz later.
