I have tried this before but I am notorious for starting things and never finishing them. My brain goes a million miles a minute twenty four hours a day three hundred sixty five days a year. Life hazard I guess. I’ll tell ya one thing, it makes sleeping fun!
A little background on me. I have been with the same guy for the last twenty three years. We have been married for twenty one. We have two awesome kids. I may be a bit bias here but if you knew them I am sure you would agree. Our daughter just turned 17, and our son will be 20 in March. I still say that I am not old enough to have kids that old. It’s impossible. I am still in my twenty’s!
I grew up in Northern Michigan, with two wonderful, hard working parents and a brother who is four years younger than me. Since we lived out in the middle of nowhere, and we didn’t have any neighbors we had to entertain ourselves, and that we did. We lived up the hill from the most gorgeous crystal clear blue lake, and the water and the woods around it were our stomping grounds. We knew every inch of it like the back of our little hands. Then you grow up…I hate that part. Still do.
They say the the things you experience as you go from childhood to adulthood are the things that make you who you are. I think they are right. I just wish now, much like many others I am sure, that there are things that I could go back and change some, or most, of the things I did, and maybe I would be better than I am. Everyone had room for improvement. So, if your one of those people that think you aren’t, I have news for you. Your’e wrong!
We are currently living with my mother in law and my husbands grandfather who has dementia. I am one of the lucky ones for the simple fact that I have the best mother in law any one could ever had. Most people don’t want to be in the same room for any length of time with theirs, and I am living with mine and honestly I love it. Why are you living there you ask? Well, we are selling our house to buy one with more land so we can have our mini farm and him mom and grandfather can live on the same land as us. That’s kind of a sticky situation..they own their trailer but not the land. And to help her with hubby’s grandfather because if your not familiar with the disease, in a nut shell, it can be very difficult to deal with someone who has it. So all the help you can get, it great. That is a big part of the reason we are where we are.
So the kids each have a room in the house and hubby and I live in a camper, but that is a blog for another time.
He is the manager at a family dollar store and I work in a bookstore, a couple days a week, as well, as being the stay at home mom, helper, taxi driver, animal tender, dish and clothes washer, but not at the same time and not in the same water, and teacher because we home school our kids.
So, that’s me in a nut shell. Sometimes I act like I just cracked my nut. Sometimes I pretend to be the mature adult I am suppose to be, but over all I am short tempered, but sweet, sassy, but caring, and funny despite what my family says about me. I love to help people who need it, and I can pretty much talk to anyone I come across. I don’t pretend to be who I am not. i am who I am and that’s all that I am.
Nothing more, nothing less.
I hope you enjoyed this little get to know me session. If you didn’t already know me, and I hope you leave me comments. The only thing I ask is that you be honest but please don’t be nasty. You can make your point with out being a butt about it.
Until next time!!
