I’m a wife, a mother, a sister, a daughter, a friend and much much more! My husband and I have been together since 1995 and we have three kids. I became a stay-at-home-mom in 2003 and then ended up running a childcare out of our home- and along the way have figured out a lot of things.
My mind is always spinning..always running..always thinking. I keep lists, I keep notes, I have even been known to email myself a note or phone number so I can readily find it! I’m very visual. If it’s not in front of me, I will not remember it. This, of course, can drive my husband nuts because it often means things are sitting out for long periods of time so I’ll remember to take care of it!
I also have a tendency to overbook myself…take on more than I can chew. I like to be doing stuff. I am not a person who can sit on the couch and watch TV for entertainment, although there ARE times when I DO that, it’s just not a common occurrence. When I’m on the phone, I’m cleaning my house- usually dusting, doing dishes, sweeping, scrubbing toilets. It’s a strange habit, I know. But now you know how I keep my house clean!
But back to my active brain….I am very thankful that I can sleep through the night…because once I am awake, I am awake for the rest of the day. My brain starts processing everything I need to do and remember, and there’s no shutting it off. Good thing I don’t ever need to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night!
Anyway….I created this blog for a few reasons:
1) As a “brain dump”. I have so many thoughts, so many things to share, so many ideas and comments and I don’t have enough outlet for them, so I decided to type them up in a central location! There’s a number of times during the week that I think to myself, “I need to share this with someone!” Well here ya go!
2) I am an avid facebooker. It is very hard for me not to go in every hour and post a status update! I have a lot to say! I like to share my daily happenings.
3) I keep learning things, and I feel like there’s value in sharing my experiences. What NOT to do, or what TO do.
Maybe you’ll enjoy reading it, maybe you won’t….but at least my thoughts are out there and not trapped in my head or sitting in a spiral notebook on my counter, or getting lost. Enjoy!
