Well! I’ve been wanting to start this blog for quite a while now. Unbelievably… I created the site almost a year ago, when I thought my life was finally going to slow down enough for me to find some quiet time to be able to collect my never ending thoughts and ideas in a coherent and not so insane way.
But… life took over again.
Case in point… currently as I write… I am laying on my beautiful white linen couch listening to the wind and the rain on a beautiful December evening. Our Christmas lights on the porch and tree are twinkling …Christmas music softly playing but not too loudly that I can’t still hear the horses next door or the train whistle in the distance, WHILE….
our THREE 5 month old puppies are wrestling (and humping )each other on top of me !
yes…. that is my life in a nutshell.
I suppose I’ve been waiting for that perfect moment to start doing what I really want to do.
( I … of course…moved out from under the little shits over to the table to continue… and …of course… they are now under my chair carrying on with their bad selves.)
Is it any wonder why I can’t collect my crazy long enough to start, let alone finish anything?
Clearly that perfect time will never come. Clearly my life will alway be crazy… in a good way. There is alway something funny, silly crazy going on in this house, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. How boring would THAT life be?
So I am hoping to just start.
That will be my focus for now. Here is where I chose to start.
I have so many ideas and thoughts I’d like to express and share and discuss.
Countless things I want to do and create, and so many places I want to see and experience.
And quite a few stupid , silly moments … because laughter is key to a happy life. …and dancing.
Also, I’ve learned that if you have a creative mind, you either find a way and the time to use it…. or you lose it. Your mind that is.
By choice… I have spent the last 20 plus years making sure that my family has had everything they wanted and needed to make them happy and healthy. It was my career choice. My job title?? Home Manager … specializing in child development and family wellness.
I despise the phrase “ stay at home Mom” .
I am so grateful for those years and the opportunity to be a Career Mother . My husband and I worked really hard to make that choice happen. Now… Our family makes me so proud and our kids are turning into two incredible humans . And… my husband and I still Like each other.
While most certainly I will be sharing my many wonderful memories as well as the difficult lessons learned along the way, What I am really after is to discover who I am now.
who I am choosing to become.
