So here it is....my mommy blog! For a few years I have been posting the (mis)adventures of my kids on my Facebook page. I have had a lot of positive feedback and people telling me I should write a book about my life as a mom. I guess many of you find humor in my life. Well, if you start following this blog you will see that writing a book is way out of my skill set. Grammar and punctuation are not in my strength column. I had to take the Writing Proficiency Exam 3 times!!! My Wheelock friends will know what I am talking about.
For those of you that don't know me, here is my life in a nutshell. I am a 39 year old, married, mostly stay at home mom raising two young girls. In pictures they look so sweet and innocent but they really give me a run for my money. Which is funny because for about 20 years I have been paid to tell other people how to raise their kids. I guess my parenting skills fall under the "do as I say, not as I do" category.
Now that they are the ripe old ages of two and four they don't need me as much. They go off and play together and tell me I can go watch my shows. We kind of live in the middle of nowhere and most of my family and friends are at least an hour to an hour and a half away...so I have some free time on my hands. In an effort to combat boredom I have started recycling... not to save the planet but to get free magazines through Recylcebank. But, that doesn't take much time. I tried "couponing" but I suck at it. I am not really saving any money. My bill is about $4-$5 less a week, but once you figure in the cost of the paper and ink I use printing my coupon spread sheet, the coupons I print off line and the newspaper I buy each week I am actually spending more money each week.
So, I figured let me give the people what they want....A BLOG!!! That is a good waste of time. I have all the comments from Facebook when people were saying I should do it. I hope you were serious. I will feel like a real big loser if I went to all this trouble setting it up and no one reads it. And, it was a lot of trouble. I hate technology and as my husband always reminds me...It hates me too! I had my friend Kristy show me how to set up a blog and I have been spending several hours a day for the past week trying to put it together...
So...take a look, sign up and follow my life as a Mini Van Mom!
P.S.- I know this entry was boring but I just needed to set it up...I promise to make it fun!!!
