About Me

Hello and Welcome!

My name is Ann Harrison and I am the Owner and Writer of Ann Again... and again.  I live in Portland, OR and have been blogging since 2008 with the prompting of my lovely mother who thought the silly stories of our family life should be shared with those who were ready for a good laugh.  My blog title came from the fact that I don't seem to share all the information I intend with one phone call, so you'll probably receive a second call from me stating "It's Ann, again."  Also, there's always more to the story, right?

Rob ~ Lily ~ Katie ~ me

I'm married to the wonderful and talented Rob Harrison, computer tech. by day, actor by night. (Story of our beginning "My Story and A Song - Romeo & Juliet") Together we have two beautiful daughters, Katie - age 17 and Lily - age 14. 

Our little house is also filled with a parakeet and a sweet cat that adopted our family, Sam. He got his name from eating 2 cans of food at a time when he first found us. Hence, Two-can (Toucan) Sam.

I share our life experiences, highs and lows, funny and sometimes not, with you on my site Ann Again... and again.  Connecting is something I love to do, and I welcome your comments.  We're all in this together and community can keep us all afloat.

Beginning in 2008 I started the Virtual Girls Night Out.  A Friday night "virtual" blog hopping party filled with music, cocktails and games.  Soon followed the Traveling Heart-Shaped Rock Project that took a little rock from the shores of the Oregon Coast to visit bloggers all over the globe.  Over the years my blog has expanded to include sharing the thoughts of fellow bloggers through Guest Posting.  This is a terrific way to broaden our community. If you would like to be featured on my blog, Ann Again... and again please e-mail me:

I also host giveaways, and provide information on products I think will benefit my lovely readers, on my partner site Ann Again... and again Reviews.

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…
