My sweet friend Joy, of Course made me smile yesterday by linking this blog with her blog, so if you're visiting from there, welcome.
It occurred to me that I should probably have started off this blog with an introduction instead of just jumping in with the madness that is my life. So here are some random bits of information about me:
Let's see...I grew up in Suburbville, Georgia, (where I went to high school with Joy), and I lived in Charleston, SC for a long time, and I've also lived in the DC area. I have lived here in Suburbia, Texas for 2 1/2 years and I have arrived at my heart's home. I never want to leave. Texas seems to have that effect on people.
The main drawback of living here is that my family is really far away. I do a marathon drive out to Georgia every summer to visit, and I try to encourage (translate: beg) my sisters, parents, and in-laws to come out here whenever they can. I am bitterly jealous of friends that have their parents and siblings nearby, especially on holidays or days that I long to "drop the kids off at Grandma's", but thankfully I have been really blessed with a group of friends that have become like an extended family to me.
What else...I've been married for almost 12 years, and saying that makes me feel old...I had 3 children in 3 1/2 years in 3 different states, and while I recommend having 3 children, I cannot recommend the rest. I enjoy being a stay-at-home mom to them. They are one of the many huge blessings in my life.
I like hiking, camping, and chocolate. I dislike Jeff Wiggle, TBN, and Mexican food. I'm active in my church and I am the leader of my daughter's Brownie troop. I refuse to participate in the PTA for no reason whatsoever. I am also very...how can I put this, I don't want to say cheap...bargain-oriented. My house is messy at all times. I can't stand being over-scheduled, but I usually am. I am a work in progress. I am obsessed with Big Bend National Park.
Well, that's me in a nutshell. Feel free to let me know how you feel about Jeff Wiggle or the PTA. I'm anxious to know where you stand.
