So my mother told me the other day that she thinks I should start a blog. As much as I hate to agree with her on anything, I'd been thinking along those lines for quite some time. I spend a lot of time reading others' blogs, and the urge to get some of my creative energy out in the same way has been building for some time.
So, here I am. To anyone who is reading this, welcome! Be warned, however, that I am famous for my lack of follow through, so don't be too disappointed if my charming personality and sparking wit disappear from the internets.
Since you've stumbled on this post somehow, I have to assume that you're interested in hearing the details of a complete strangers life, so let me tell you a little about my family.
I'm 32 years old (and it still sounds strange to me that my age starts with a 3), I've been married to Jym (age 40) for almost 9 years and we have a son, Alex, who will be 1 in June. We hadn't planned on having kids, so when I came up pregnant in December 2007 it was a bit of a shock to us both. I'd like to say that after the initial shock wore off that we were both thrilled (isn't that how these stories are supposed to go?), but we had both placed parenthood in the "things that other people do" category, so some major adjustments had to be made by us both.
Happily, adjustments were made, and we're now a pretty happy family of three. And three it shall remain, as I had the Essure procedure done earlier this month. Alex will be an only child. Hopefully, this won't stunt his social development as so many people seem to think it will (Thanks for your opinions, people at work who I barely know!)
So, that's it for now. It's almost 3am, and morning comes quickly with an almost 10 month old. I'm pretty excited about this blogging thing. Here's hoping that I can muster up some "follow through."
