Hi. I’m Joy aka Evil Joy. I’m a mom, wife, daughter, sister, and friend. I love to write, snowboard, run, and read. I love to meet new people and learn all I can, all the time.

I write about my family, my opinions, things I love and dislike. Right now….I’m spending copious amounts of time taxing my children – aka spawn – from one place to another. Frequently funny, always honest, and occasionally serious, I write about everything from dealing with messy teenagers to navigating life after PTSD.

“Evil Joy” started when our family experienced a health scare. It was my way of keeping everyone informed and updated while dealing with the stress of a life and death situation. “Dr. Evil” – as he likes to be called  – got sick one day.  Less than 24 hours later he was on life support in the midst of kidney, heart, and liver failure. Throw in some staph pneumonia, and rhabdomyolysis and you get a very scary picture.  I started making fun what I could, being mad at the insanity, and generally informing our friends and family  through Facebook. One night…I’d had enough. His beard was the focus of the funny/fury.  The nurses shaved it off while he was in a coma. “It walked the plank!” and Evil Joy was spawned.

Dr. Evil is fully recovered and has regrown his beard.

Come visit often! You never know what you’re going to find!
