Hey…I’m Tracey. Why do I go by “Trouble Ensued”? Well, once you know me well enough, it won’t need explanation. But in a nutshell, my husband announced one day that if I ever wrote my autobiography, I should entitle it, “Tracey Was Born…And Trouble Ensued.”
I hate it when he’s right (which is pretty much all of the time), but I have caused more than my fair share of hysterical “trouble”. So with that one comment, the light bulb went on to start a blog.
I just happen to find that life’s little indignities can be wickedly humorous. And we all need a laugh from time to time, don’t we?
I’ve organized the site into categories to help cubbyhole the chaos:
“Streams of Consciousness”: It’s just that…the goofy thoughts that make the inside of my head an interesting place to live…at least for me.
“Things I Love”: Well, a girl has to earn a living, right? Yes, sometimes I get paid a small commission if you click one of my links and purchase a product or service. But in all honesty, I get pretty passionate about the products I use. So, regardless of potential revenue, I only recommend products or services that I personally use and believe in. In other words, recommendations will always be from my heart. You have my promise.
“Christmas Letters”: Admit it. Everyone pretty much dreads the annual Christmas letters they receive. So instead, I decided to make our annual letters mostly about the silly, goofy, crazy things that my husband and I have found ourself embroiled in during that year. The idea for this blog began because of the encouraging responses we received from our friends. So to keep tradition alive for everyone, here is a collection of all of the annual Christmas Letters.
“Information Collective”: a place where all of us can pool our individual brilliance on particular topics. If two heads are better than one, then imagine the math on this. All of us have great ideas, and we can keep them here in a handy list to refer to anytime.
