About Me

Screen shot 2013-05-01 at 5.43.51 PMHi, I’m Heather and I live in a small-ish town about 25 miles west of Cleveland, Ohio.   I say small-ish because you can drive from side to side in about 15 minutes, but we have a Target and a Wal-Mart.  My husband and I have been married for a little over 18 years, we were high school sweethearts.  We have two daughters; Giggles who is a little over 18 and graduated this year and The Chicken who is nearly 15 and a half.  No, those aren’t their real names, just in case you were wondering.

We have a dog named Barney who is slowly coming to grips with her under.wear eating addiction, for whatever reason there isn’t a 12 step program for that.  We also have two cats, Carli is pretty laid back and Chewey is probably the loudest and most ungraceful cat you will ever happen to meet.

Up until last year I stayed at home with my girls, it was one of the most rewarding things I have been able to do.  Now I work full time, doing a job that I love and have the worst case of Working Mommy Guilty ever.  If someone tells you that you can’t have Working Mommy Guilt when your children are 15 and 18 they are lying.

I like to keep things real so I talk about subjects like vanquishing my facial hairs, depression, fibromyalgia, teenage pregnancy, and my crazy childhood.

I am not always the best at updating my blog, so you can find me on Instagram as @hdurdil and Domestic Extraordinaire even has a Facebook page!  I also sporadically twitter as @hdurdil.  If you would like to contact me directly you can by emailing  domesticextraordinaire@gmail.com

I look forward to sharing my stories with you!
