Ready. Set. Go!

I’ve dabbled a bit in blogging, but I found, like a lot of other things in my life I hit the ground running while quickly letting the commitment slide. Life just has a funny way of getting in the way.

Who am I?

I am a woman, hear me roar!

I’m kidding.

Who am I really? – I am a woman who is rapidly approaching thirty. I am a full-time wife, mother, maid, chauffeur, accountant, cook, decorator, party planner, home manager and employee. Sometimes I find it is hard to balance all of these “jobs” in my life, and when I struggle is usually when things get a little interesting. I’ll be honest – I struggle a lot, BUT I have learned to improvise in the hard times, and when needed I:

  • Drink a glass bottle of wine.
  • Escape to my happy place – my king size bed with soft bedding and multiple feather pillows, my ipad in one hand and a glass of wine in the other, the TV set to E! network and, wait for it…a delicious bottle of red wine, un-corked and resting peacefully on my nightstand ready to fulfill my need for a refill.
  • Break down in tears.
  • A combination of any, or all of the above.

In my previous blog, which MIGHT have had 12 posts in a years time; I didn’t write about anything in particular – and chances are I won’t in this blog either.

Truth is, I just like to write.

I wish I was better at it, and I wish I had more time for it; to practice, to master, to work on my grammar.

Maybe one day.

I have no readers at this point, and I don’t anticipate having any readers, much less dedicated followers…but if you happen to stumble upon my blog and start reading, please don’t count on being thoroughly impressed by my writing capabilities, my witty humor, or my life-like story telling capabilities. Chances are, my posts will be pretty life-less and boring. I’m just counting on this ole’ blog to be a creative outlet to get me through some of the monotony of day-to-day life.  I also needed a hobby, and this one comes pretty cheap.  Consider this your official warning – this blog might suck!

Besides needing a hobby and a creative outlet, another big reason for this blog is the simple fact that it will help me recall stories and events that I might otherwise forget. Kind of like a baby book, but for my adult life. After all, I am quickly approaching the big THREE-O. It is very possible that the Alzheimer’s will be kicking in soon…it could happen, right?

So with that all being said…Ready. Set. Go!

I’m starting fresh; with a new blog address,a blank canvas and a stong desire to keep this hobby going strong.

If you read my blog, awesome. If you don’t read it, screw you no worries. There are far more interesting things out there in the blog world, I’m 110% sure of that.

Till Next Time,

I’m reaching for a refill.
