In Which I Ramble About Myself (can't wait to read it, can you?)

It's the first day of May and the first day of Blog Me Maybe. It's also a Tuesday so besides cleaning my bathrooms and doing my laundry, based on the Blog Me Maybe schedule, I've gotta tell you something about myself.

(I've always like this pic, even though it's *gasp* six years old)

So I was born on April 13th, 19-

Did you really think I was going to make you sit through my life story? Ha, don't worry- I'll spare you. In fact, I could just say that I've already told you something about myself (the above cleaning and laundry tidbit) and leave it at that right?

Nah... Boring! Although I hate to say it, my life isn't all that interesting. I hate it when someone I haven't talked to in a long time calls and says, what's up? and my answer is usually, um... you know... nothing much... the usual...

I mean, really. What's there to talk about? I cook and clean and take care of my kids and read and write and watch TV and go to movies and go to church and eat out whenever I can and try to exercise to make up for the eating out and all the Swedish berries and there you have my life in one long run-on sentence.

But know what? I kinda like it. Sometimes I think, this isn't what I thought life would be like. And it's true. Even though I always wanted to get married and have kids and be a mom, I didn't really know what it was like. Sometimes I read books and I think, I wish I was doing that. I wish I was traveling around the world, I wish I was performing on stage somewhere, I wish I lived on a beach , I wish I wish I wish.

The grass is always greener, right? But sometimes, the grass is just fine from my view.

To stop my ramblings, here's one more fact about me: I'm happy. Life might not be as glamorous or exciting as I imagined it would be as a teenager, but it's my life and I don't want to waste it.

So there. Enough about me.

(Next time I do the "about me" post, I'll try to be more focused. I blame The Disenchantments. It got me all philosophical and nostalgic and generally thinking about life.)


  1. Life is good! You have the right attitude. We all have much to be grateful for.

    Happy belated birthday!

  2. Well, that's why we have books, right? We get to live all the different lives we want to but can't.

  3. First, I understand how The Disenchantment can have that effect :D I think your attitude is great and the little things in life are usually the most important ones and are big in the eyes of others!

  4. I very much envy your life. I have a little over a year left with my job and then I get to do much the same thing - be a mom. Can't wait!

  5. My life isn't glamorous either. I have two kids who need constant supervision (or they'd tear the house apart) and I write. My two passions in life. I'd like to travel more, but for now, this is where I need to be.

    I like your attitude, and your post really resonated with me. I'm glad I discovered your blog.

  6. Hi there!

    Fello MAYbe blog challenger here just popping by to say hi!

    LOVE this post! I could have written it myself (minus the kids and hubby part) ... but yeah my life is not very interesting and my usual response to people's question of what's up is exactly the same as yours.

    But, like you, I am happy with the little life I lead. It may not be anything exciting, but it's mine and I chose it and that's pretty dang good.

    I am a new follower!

    Cannot wait to read more!!:)
