Jumping in

Well, here I am, wondering why it's 11:18 pm and I'm still on the computer. Maybe because I decided to jump into this pool called blogging and I can't stop working on my "baby" until it has something to say. That's something I'm still working on...what I have to say.

I'm a mom first. I have three WONDERFUL children. Seriously, every mom thinks her children are beautiful and smart and just the greatest thing ever, but mine really are all those things. Except when they are all in the same room together. Evidently my "baby" will have an honest voice and tell you like it is!

I'm crafty. Not in the sneaky, shady way. I have a desire to make "stuff". Some of it useful, some of it decorative, some of it just plain old stuff. I'll share that side of me with you whenever I feel a project is worth sharing.

I like to cook. Which, is why this is, in part, going to be a weight loss blog. Maybe in big part a weight loss blog. I'll share some of the stuff I try.

I'm a runner. It's that part of me that wants to speak the loudest right now and why I'm up WAY too late on a night when I have to get up early and take the dog and the mom (my mom) and go for a 5k romp through the neighborhood. I'm not a good runner. I'm a slow runner. VERY slow runner (walkers have been known to pass me). But, despite my lack of skill in my chosen sport I keep trying and 2013 is scheduled to be the year that I break personal records on the track and on the scale. Hopefully, my story will be an inspiration to someone out there who thinks they aren't fit enough, not good enough, not fast enough, just plain old not enough. I know that feeling of not being "enough" of whatever is being asked of you. Not talented enough. Not skinny enough. Not motherly enough. But, that's not what this blog is about. This blog is about giving the voice that says keep going, keep doing, keep trying, a voice. Thanks for reading and coming along on this ride with me.


  1. I am definitely along for the ride with you!! So glad to see you jumping head first into the blogging realm!

  2. I'm so excited about this blog!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :O)

  3. Heavy sigh, now I'm jealous of your shiny new blog ;-) !
    (Had to take mine off-line last month when I confirmed long-standing suspicion that Ex was reading)
    So I'm doing all my venting on SP now & hope that Ex can't hack into my private page...

    Anyway, we fellow turtles have to stick together!
