I was just inspired to write about my life...a "recap" of sorts! I've posted quite a bit, but I'm not sure that I've actually given an overview of my life! So bear with me...(remember narcissism? Here we go again!)
I've been blogging for about three months. I had wanted to blog for a long time, thought about it often, but (honestly) didn't think I had much "worthwhile" to blog about. I had read about so many touching stories, that I thought, "who'd want to read my boring old blog?" But I did it anyway. I'm like that! And I love this!
I only have one (I think) person that I know IRL (in real life) who reads my blog, I've mentioned it to my mama and my baby brother...I think that, secretly, they both think I'm a little crazy! As for the one person who reads it...it's my BFF, Tara (and the only person I call by her real name...it's okay, I've cleared it with her!!) she tells me she loves it (thanks Tara!). I think I like it this way...now I can have a place to vent when my family drives me batty!
My husband and I have 5 children...well, 4 together, as in four that we helped create! I was a "package deal", if you will, so my husband got a two-for-one when me married me! A buy one get one sort of a deal. I had my oldest child when I was 19...the "good girl and the all American jock" got caught...wouldn't trade the outcome for the world, but wish I didn't have to deal with the "all American jock" anymore. Our kids are 13 (boy), 7 (girl), 5 (boy), 3 (boy), 17 mo (girl)...our baby took us by surprise, and I am so grateful that God had her in His plans for us!
I have 3 brothers, no sisters...being the sole daughter, I've lived a pretty charmed life, but the one thing I felt I always missed out on was having a sister. My BFF's are now my sister's by choice (which I'm told is maybe a good thing!).
I am an RN, I work in Labor and Delivery and Pediatrics. I love my job, I love what I do, but I wish I could do it without the never-ending charting. Sigh...the things we do the CYA (nurse speak for "cover your a**"...chart, chart, and then, chart some more!).
We live in Minnesota...the state that for a second time, elected a celebrity into public office. Sheesh, sometimes, I'm embarrassed to say where I'm from! Today the weather is muggy, "soupy"...so thick outside we start hoping for a big ol' storm to break this humidity (does that happen every where?)! I live for summer...I'm one of those mom's who dread when school starts, no more sleeping in, no more lazy days...and to think it'll be back upon us soon...yuck!
I'm a celebrity news junky, I live for People to hit the shelves on Fridays (did you know that sometimes it's out on Thursday?!!)...I love '24', reading, scary rides. I hate rides that spin, mushrooms, and black olives!
Okay, totally random, but lot's of fun (for me, anyway!!)! I could go on and on, and I'm sure I'll think of something else I should have added as soon as I hit "publish", but I think this is good, for now! Have a fabulous weekend!
