Other things you may want to know:**Why "Shenandoah"?
Blame my mother. That's the name she said she would have given me, if she'd had the nerve. I started using it in high school as a nickname ("Shannon-doah"), and years later when we got internet for the first time and everyone was worried about privacy issues, I used it as my online persona. My first amateur attempt at a website was "Shenandoah's Eclectic Website." It was natural to title my blog "Shenandoah's Eclectic Musings," which then became "Scribblings" when I shifted my focus to provide a place for readers to come find out more about me.
**Why the tag "barbarian queen"?
For years I've affectionately termed my family "the barbarian horde." We have eight children, and we are a boisterous, intense, live-life-out-loud bunch--that is, when we aren't curled up at our castle, recharging our introvert batteries.
