So Happy New Year...its 2011. I am currently a stay at home mom of 2 fabulous little boys. They are 2 years and 7 months. The 2 year old M1 (monster 1) has apparently made it his lifes goal to make me lose my mind. The 7 month old M2 (monster 2) is still debating...he currently goes back and forth between the sweetest baby ever and the monster that will be the perfect side kick to M1. One day if I stop blogging never to be heard from again M1 was successful...you may find me on my shrink's lovely couch making moaning noises curled in a fetal position...or pulling a Goldie Hawn from the movie Overboard where the fake hubby comes home and she is sitting on the couch just going bah bah bah bah bah bah over and over again. True story when I am having a bad day I actually text message bah bah bah bah to my hubs...thank goodness he gets me and only thinks I am semi-nuts.
On to what a blog is really mostly about...me me me me. I am honest and straight forward. I tell it like it is. I am also a bit different...my drummer well he is beating a different tune...and it probably ain't the same rhythm as yours either...that's ok though...I don't mind being different.
I am a 30 year old Southern Gal still living in the south. I worked for most of my life in one customer service position or another..but now I am a stay at home mom. I am a cancer survivor. I was diagnosed with a terminal cancer at the age of 17. Being 17 and told you have 2 weeks to live...well lets just say it re-writes your life....or in that case lack there of. Somehow through divine intervention or just my plain stubbornness about not liking being told what I was going to do...here I am. In remission now 12 years....full story to be told at another time...or pieces of it at different times till you get the gist. I have actually done alot of things the doctors told me I wouldn't. Like have kids...I went through 5 years of fertility treatments with medical help... I was told by top specialists..."children just aren't in your future". Good thing the doctors I went to aren't part of the psychic network...because hello 2 kids now that grew inside of me...and I birthed...well almost birthed technically the doctor cut them out but I totally feel like I birthed these babies...anyways a couple more billion payments to the hospital and they will completely consider these kids all mine.
I feel like though I have overcome alot already that I haven't done enough. So this year I have decided its going to be my year...that's right I claim it... This year I am going to shine... I have decided that instead of sitting on my fluffy...lets just be polite since we are just starting out and say "beehind" (please imagine with a strong southern twang)... I am going to get off it. I am going to follow my stars instead of just looking at them....and I am going to write about it along the way...What are my stars you ask? At least I hope that was you asking and not just the little voices in my head....This year I am going to lose the weight all of it finally...and I know everyone says that but last year after having a baby in May 2010 I totally rocked it and have lost...(you should be mentally be inserting a drum roll here) 56 pounds of flubber as of the scales reading this morning. Another star I am chasing is being a better Mom and Wife. Truly I want this blog to be a reflection of me...the real me. So I will put up recipes, crafts, home remodeling, Mommy junk....whatever just pieces of my life. So that I have a living record of what I have done...something I can look back at. So that hopefully I can say that I made an effort to follow my stars..whatever they were.
