Hi all!  I’m Lindsey, [currently solo] mom to two little kindred spirits.   I’m currently working at home as a writer and am exploring many different avenues of income.  Join me in my quest to live simply, frugally, and pursue my goal to successfully make a full-time income from home!

The part where I share more than you probably wanted to know.

Half of my growing-up years I spent in Alaska, and the other half in Alabama.  Yeah, the two are polar opposites.  I like to think this experience of living in two extremely different climates/social atmospheres built character in me and made me at least appear well-traveled.  (Ha!)

I moved to Oregon as soon as I turned 19, hoping to eventually make it back to Alaska – but I never made it.  I proceeded to   1) Get a job as a part-time bookkeeper’s assistant,  2) Quit that job because it was booooring and take medical transcription from a local college, and  3)  Work as a medical transcriptionist/editor for a large hospital.  Yeah, by the time I got out of college, typing out reports was already becoming obsolete thanks to voice recognition software.  Yay.

I was homeschooled most of my school years and loved it – I actually didn’t want it to end when I graduated.  My passion for homeschooling my own two comes naturally after being taught at home by my amazing mom.  I enjoy teaching even more than I imagined I would!

What am I really like – in person?  I can be mistakenly thought shy, but my personality comes out when I know someone well.  It’s probably kind of scary.  I consider myself  an introvert, only because I need recharge time when I’m around a lot of people.  I prefer quiet walks in the woods to parties.  Correction:  I run screaming from anything resembling a party invitation.  I can be rather scatterbrained, but  I prefer to see that as part of my charm.

  • Lindsey, I visited your site for the first time and liked the way you introduced yourself – warm, chatty and at home with yourself and the gifts God has given you. I wish more of us could be like you. God bless you and your family. Ignatius Fernandez.

  • neat ideas!

  • I was a single Mom too so I love how you describe your life Lindsey! My two kiddos are now at Duke University (Air Force Veteran) and I have a soon-to-be Veterinarian graduating this year from NC State, so I am somewhat ahead of you on the lifetime curve. :)
