My nightmare to find an answer.

It has been a minute since I was able to devote any time to my website.  I am hoping all the information below will help you understand why I have been absent.  I am back…. for now…. for as along as my mind and body will allow me to indulge myself with this way of expressing myself.  I hope you will either join me or continue with me on this journey.

For YEARS now, I have been fighting something that was destroying my body, my mind, my life.  Doctors dismissed me when I kept saying to them, “something just isn’t right” or, eventually and desperately, “Please help me!”.  They certainly never minded billing me over and over again, while I received either no answers or incorrect diagnosis… and, believe me, there were tons of them.  All in the past 5 years, I was diagnosed with Meniere’s Disease, MRSA, Mollaret’s, depression, anxiety.  I actually took the time, recently, to write one of my primary care doctors a pleading letter expressing how I felt so dismissed by him and that I felt I had always earned the impression and reputation with him to be an honest, trustworthy, reliable and a reasonable patient.  Three days later, I received a Certified letter from him saying, “You’re dismissed from our practice.”  Gotta love it. (more…)


I chose to name my blog “The Dysfunctional Mommy” because I really wanted it to be “The Dysfunctionally Functional Mommy”, but, apparently that was too long.  I felt it was appropriate in my case.  I am married to the love of my life and a mommy to five beautiful “babies”, ages 26-13.  I recently became a grandmother, (I am “CiCi”), for the first time as well!  I have had a wonderfully blessed, painful, rewarding journey through this thing called motherhood… thus far.  I embrace my successes, my mistakes, my lessons and my trials and tribulations.

I am a proud Southern woman.  I adore Southern traditions, customs, manners and simplicity.  I love DIY projects, recipes, product reviewing, household tips/hacks, decorating, gardening/landscaping and all other things related to being a mommy and wife.

Unfortunately, I put my foot in my mouth more often than not. I have a good heart and never intentionally hurt anyone but, sometimes I still do.  I love to laugh.  I intend to use this blog to share project ideas, opinions and experiences in parenting and marriage and exchange fun ideas.  Sometimes it will be silly, lighthearted and fun.  Other times, it may be honest and raw.

I hope you will enjoy my blog.  It would be extra if you would make it over to my Facebook page for my business.  profile pic

  1. Kristi, I didn’t know how else to contact you but wondered if there was any way possible that you could monogram something for me today for a going away party tomorrow. Please e-mail me if this might be a possibility! Thanks so much!
