Sanity Waiting to Happen is not your average mom blog. I don’t write about food allergies, birthday party themes, scrapbooking, crafts with toddlers, mommy clothing styles or any of that other stuff. I do have kids. And I often write about them. But make no mistake, you will not learn a THING about kids or parenting from this blog.

I tackle the tougher topics…like why do cat food makers shape the morsels like fish or chicken? Do cats really care? Exactly how many of something is “more than you can shake a stick at?” And then there’s my ongoing paranoia that my house smells like animals and no one will tell me. That topic shows up a lot.
WordPress says that I’m supposed to tell you a few things about myself so that you’ll want to read more of my posts. Here goes.
My name is Angela Weight. I live in Midlothian, VA with my husband James, two sons, Andrew and Jack, dogs Katie and Ayla and cats, Anakin and Cali. We’re new to the area…transplants from the Dublin, GA area, where I grew up. My husband has a job that pays the bills so I can sit around and obsess about cat food shapes and how my house smells. I also have this goal of seeing all 50 states by the time I’m 50. I’m 40 now and have been to 42 of them. If you have any friends or family in Vermont, Rhode Island, Minnesota, Mississippi, Arkansas, Oklahoma, North Dakota or Alaska who’d like us to come visit (and maybe pay for it) let me know.
Both of my sons (ages 13 and 9) play a ridiculous amount of baseball. If I’m not at home or out buying scented wax warmer cubes, I’m probably at a baseball field somewhere in Suburbia. In fact, I have to leave now to take Jack to practice. I’ll write more later.
****My first ebook of essays is now available on Amazon, ibooks and Smashwords. Barnes & Noble will upload it soon, hopefully.
Oh, another thing you need to know. We’re SF Giants fans. Crazy, fanatical Giants fans. I grew up a Braves fan, but converted when I married James who grew up in the Bay Area. That’s important.
Great! Now Jack is late for practice.
And here are a few more random pics that still make me smile, regardless of how many times I look at them.
