Introducing The Woman Behind This Blog

I'm going to give this a try. I'm not sure how it will go or if I'll be blogging everyday or not. I enjoy reading blogs and have read many awkward first posts, and now it's my turn to get through it. Although technically this is my second post, therefore I can throw awkwardness to the wind and just get on with trying to post something someone might be remotely interested in.

I haven't decided what the main theme will be throughout the blog. I guess we'll just have to see what comes naturally.

I am a happily married wife, and have a passel of kiddos nipping at my heels. So I didn't marry the tall dark and handsome type, but rather a short, blue eyed, balding type, but I have discovered if you really love someone they become the most handsome person you know of.

I love my life although it is totally different from what I used to dream about as a teenager. I have learned a lot since then and have come to the conclusion that I am one of those people that will have to keep learning until they are old and feeble, and even then I wouldn't be surprised if life would hand me a few more lessons.

I'm not living on cloud nine or in some fantasy world. I'm a real person with real thoughts and feelings, and yes they get bumped occasionally, but I try not to dwell on those occasions. I have resolved to refuse to let someone make me miserable by holding grudges against them, but that is still something I'm working on.

After my husband, my kiddos are the joy of my life, although I have had moments when I was buried in laundry and housework and little ones begging for attention that I wondered what possessed me to think a big family would be a good idea.

So really I'm just an average stay at home Mom trying to enjoy the life she is privileged to have.
