I thought this was funny since I feel like I'm having a blonde moment today.
My life is so completely chaotic right now, you know with the ALA right around the corner ( jealous? ) that I have no idea what to write about today. I have zero ideas. I am usually thinking about ideas on what to blog about all the time, but today I am not coming up with anything. At all. So, I thought I would share a little about ME my family and my life. *If for any reason you are about to die of boredom just close down and check back tomorrow, I'm sure Andye will have some great book review or Vlog.
I am a wife and mother of five first and foremost. I love my life. My kids and my husband have made me the woman I am today. I have been married for almost eighteen years. My oldest will be sixteen this August and my youngest is eight. I have three boys and two girls. We live on about three beautiful acres of land with lots of trees, a pond and a creek that runs all the way to the Potomac. I love living here. I love looking out my kitchen widow to see my boys in cut off jean shorts trying to catch minnows in the creek with a pickle jar.
ENJOY!!! ( This is not my taste in music, but You can't necessarily play drums with a double kick pedal to Frank Sinatra now, CAN YOU ? )
I know, I know... He's crazy. What can I say?
Well, as far as reading and book reviewing goes... I really haven't been doing that for very long. To tell you the truth, I've only been reading for about seven/eight months now. Well, I've been reading since about five, but ENJOY reading... not too long.
It all started back last summer when I met Andye at a local pool. Our daughters where already friends, so when my daughter introduced me to Kit's mom naturally I had to put a smile on my face while shaking her hand and saying " Nice to meet you, Andye. " But really what I was thinking was... Well, I hope she doesn't think we are hanging out just because we both love Harry Potter, home school our children, have seen Pride and Prejudice fifty times, have blonde hair, are loud talkers, wear bikinis, have the same basic personality ( both crazzzy ) and our daughters are best friends. I am more of a loner, you see. Let me say that in a different way, Andye is pretty much my only friend. I mean I have a few other friends, but before Andye I would either go to lunch with one of my children or by myself. I'm not trying to have my own pity party, that's really how I preferred it before I met the crazy blonde. Ha ha. Laugh with me here, you should see us on Twitter.
*Shhhhh. Don't tell Andye but she had me at
audiobooks. Thank you for that Andye. He has changed my life forever. For about six months now all I have listened to in my car is Jim Dale. Hmmmm. Maybe I was the crazy blonde dork that stalked Andye ? Well, I don't really remember. I just know that God put her in my life for some reason and I want to thank HIM for it. I love you , Andye. OK, enough with the mooshy stuff. Now down to business...
I have enjoyed blogging/writing for Reading Teen so much. My husband asks me every-once-in-a-while Why I do it? I don't get paid, it takes up a lot of my time ( which I don't have a lot to spare ) and I
