anissa is writing somewhere else. not like pete. at all. or with body hair.

Many have been confused. so I’ll clear things up.

This is Anissa, by the way.

We may have heard of each other.

My husband Peter is writing out his thoughts here at Hope4Peyton.

i just started back at FreeAnissa and working backend at Aiming Low.

I write sort of slowly compared to Pete.

I don’t tell stories the way he does.

So maybe the only thing we have in common is the strokes.

And squirrels.

    The “Aiming Low” link does not work but that’s ok I can find it. Looks like it has a “comma com” instead of a “dot com”. I’m not being picky I just sincerely do not want you to miss any internet traffic now that you are back in action! Yay Anissa!

    I didn’t know what had happened (I’m not on the internet much since going back to work full-time) but once I found out I had to come by and let you know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. We’ve never met but you can feel just how strong of a woman you are just by reading what you and your husband have written. You truly are an inspiration and I wish we could’ve met before you left FL! I’ll keep y’all in my prayers and continue to send wishes of nothing but the best your way!

    Yeah so…we’ve never met, we don’t know each other from a hole in the wall, all I know about you and our family is what you’ve blogged (which actually could very well be TMI, LOL), you know NOTHING about me but here I am, smiling like an idiot.

    Welcome back!

    Keep on keepin’ on, girl!

    My hearing has always been motherly and I thought the tv show Boy Meets World was Boy meets Squirrels….my kids even tho they are young adults, still won’t let me forget that. “Geez Mom, that doesn’t even make sense!” ~shrug~

    So glad you are back. It’s been quite a road for you and your family. I tried to keep up with your husband’s writings. You are right, he is quite a wordsmith. Welcome back.

    And I am sure you are glad of that!

    Headed over to FreeAnissa and cried when I read about Peyton. What strength you have to handle such raw emotion from your baby girl. Such a precious family you have been blessed with.

    Anissa – you’re my kind of blogger – references to squirrels, body hair, and you keep it brief. I have only been an Anissa groupie since this latest brain trauma adventure but I can see I’ve missed a lot of fabulous blogging. It is a joy to read your words!
