About Me



I have a great life and a fun blog and I’m thrilled with both!


My name is Janna. I live with my snarky husband and crazy family near Sacramento. I have a full-time job, a cute little house, 3 stepdaughters, 2 sons, 3 cats and a far-from-effective guard dog named Shelby. For more about me, click here.


I started this blog as a way to write and as a project for me to work on that didn’t involve all the crazy in my life. Since then, I have realized that I love blogging and I have developed a passion for it. I am slowly transitioning my blog into a resource for women who are over-worked, over-stressed, and overwhelmed. Life for mothers is very different for us than it was for our mothers and grandmothers. It is hard sometimes to balance all the demands but I firmly believe that it is possible. That’s what Close to Crazy is all about.


Stick around and tell me what you think.




XO, Janna
