Are the people in your life comfortable with you writing about them all the time?  How does your husband feel about it?
If there is a topic I feel needs to be approved ahead of time, I always ask that person before posting.  My family is not a very private group and most of the time I get a note back that says, “Yep, you can use that!”

While my husband is not as out-going as I am and while he prefers to stay behind the scenes, he never takes issue with the stuff I write.  In fact, most of my more controversial posts are edited by him in advance because I really trust his opinion and know that he’ll tell me if I’ve gone too far.

Where do you blog?
Most of the time I write from my kitchen table on my laptop.  But since it’s so light and compact (I have a Sony Ultrabook) I also walk to Starbucks or others coffee shops to blog because I’m usually more productive if I leave the house.  I’m one of those people who doesn’t listen to music while I’m writing in public so I’m getting really good at tuning out noise!

Does your husband have an accent?
Yes, he does!  I don’t hear it or register it anymore because I’m so used to the way he talks but I do have to help him order at dinner sometimes because often the servers aren’t expecting his Scottish dialect and they give him a puzzled look when he asks for the steak.  Also, he sounds really Scottish when he gets angry, which just makes me giggle.

Your husband is officially a permanent resident.  Is his green card really green?
Yes, it is!  It’s the same size as your driver’s license and it has a nice green tint to it.




Do you have a question for me?  I love getting email!  Send me your thoughts at dramahappens(at)gmail(dot)com.

    I got a kick out of seeing this blog. My husband Iain is fae Airdrie, North Lanarkshire as well he lived on Frew Street and worked for the council. He lived there all his life went to Chapelside Primary and Airdrie Academy. After we were married I lived there for a year and my boys attended the schools there as well. My daughter was 3 and was getting a Scottish accent before we moved. I walked up that hill to the town center many times to shop or catch the train into Glasgow. Iain and I have been married 15 years! Iain still has his accent and I have to translate on occasion at drive thru’s and to my dad who is 85!!! He still wears his kilt on special occasions!!! We have been back in Texas since 9-21-2001. All my best to you and yours!!!
