Hi Everyone!


Welcome to shandawanda — Shanda’s good deals. I was an avid journal writer before I met my husband, Fil. Since then, I have had several attempts to start writing again, but it was hard to write to an imaginary person when there is actually someone you can talk to. Reading my cousin’s blogs made me realize how much I missed writing, so I’m committed to giving it another try. With the help of my iPod touch, who knows? Maybe blogging will stick to me 🙂
