About Me

I am a full-time working mom with two kids who wants to share my life (the good, bad, ugly, funny and random experiences) at work and at home.  I am a down-to-earth, straight talking Midwest girl and reader beware – I sometimes use sarcasm.  I am not a best-selling author, guru or someone who can provide professional advice.  My musings will not change the world or start a trend, they are simply my thoughts on a topic that caught my attention at that time.

I am a brand new blogger.  This is meant to be my personal blog where I suspect I will write posts mainly about being a mom, daily experiences, perhaps something related to work and other random stuff that catches my attention, like something on TMZ.  There will not be a theme that I strive to write content about.  I am not a literary genius – I admit that right here and now.  So why am I doing this?

I am doing this as my method of personal growth.  I’m a mom, I’ve branded myself as such and I wear my mom badge with honor and pride.  But I have realized that for the past six plus years my focus has been on my kids/husband and work.  I’ve been buried under the day-to-day aspects of raising two small children while working full-time.  I finally stuck my head up and realized that I feel that I have forgotten or lost my voice, personal thoughts and opinions.  I am not looking to set the world on fire with radical thoughts,  be controversial, rant and rave, or even be overly thought-provoking.  I am simply looking for a hobby that I enjoy. (nope, it’s not a mid-life crisis, not that I am aware of anyway)

Writing appeals to me.  It has always been easier for me to communicate via written word than face-to-face.  And the fact is that I am very shy, it takes me time to be comfortable in new settings so going out and joining a new group for a socializing doesn’t appeal to me.  If someone who knows me reads this they may disagree with that statement.  Truthfully, I like people, I like having a good time – with people I know and have grown comfortable with.   If you put me in a room where I don’t know anyone, I will find the nearest corner, pull out my phone and pretend to be occupied until I have wasted enough time and can make a graceful exit.  Plus I want a hobby that I can do on my own time, when I want.

I guess I am channeling my inner Carrie Bradshaw to some degree albeit in a slightly different format.  Thanks you for reading.  I appreciate comments and feedback.
