Well hey there! If you are reading this then WELCOME TO MY FIRST BLOG POST!!! Before we get too deep, there are a couple of things I would like you to know. First I AM NOT A WRITER, but I do have some things to say and share with you. Things that might make you laugh, or cry. Or maybe a story of the way I mother my children will make you realize that you aren’t as bad at being a mother as you thought you were. I will set the bar REAL low people. Be blessed. Having 4 biological kids wasn’t in our original plan, neither was being foster to adopt parents, putting our total to 5 kids, and neither was taking in another foster baby which gives us a grand total of 6 freaking kids that we are responsible for keeping alive. (I cut it pretty close some days) Oh Lord I can’t wait for you to meet Destry. He has definitely cut my life expectancy down by 5 years with all the stunts he’s pulled. You will love him! But that’s for another time:)
I am awkward. Sometimes it’s painful to watch. Other times you just gotta laugh real hard at me. I don’t need you to laugh “with me”it’s ok, you can laugh “at me” I don’t mind. One time I described one of my bestest friends by the size of her bust line, complete with hand gestures to an absolute stranger. “Yes Hannah, she has real big bajangas.” I don’t know how or why that came out of my mouth but it did and I’m ready to own it. I have a lot of fears, spiders, heights, making phone calls, ordering food, any kind of winged beast, from butterflies to birds. Birds are evil and will peck out your eyes. OH and rodents, including bats which are flying rodents!!! GROSSS!! (taking deep breaths now) And don’t worry if you are my friend and have a fear, I’ll fear that too! I wouldn’t want you to have to face your fears alone. What kind of friend would that make me? 🙂 I also have a few OCD tendencies. I really don’t like it when people’s eyebrows are going the wrong way. I will fix them for you or ask you to fix them yourself. But rest assured, I will not quit helping you fix them until they are perfect! I also CANNOT STAND when a fork (breathe) scraps (breathe) a plate (scrunch shoulders up in imaginary pain) I will rub your plate where I think that fork has scraped. I’m sorry but it must be done. I need to heal the scrape that was carelessly made by that dang fork. I might even try to take the offensive fork and wipe it with my napkin to help make the offensive fork a better behaved fork. All the while my face will be doing really pretty things. It’s not my most favorite thing about me. I’m an introvert and an extrovert which is great because I can fit in pretty much anywhere. I also think there’s a lot of stuff I’m still trying to figure about myself, and I think I’m ok with that.
I guess the most important thing I want you to know is that I’m starting this blog for me. It’s something I’ve wanted to do since forever and I’m finally going to do it. It’s scary to put yourself out there, but I’ve found that I’m getting too old to be scared.(don’t ask how old) It’s time to DO and not hold back. God gives us one life to live, just one. I’m not going to continue living it with the fear of failure, because that is one sure-fire way to never DO anything.
So that’s me in a nutshell. Thank you for reading my first official blog post. (all 5 of you. I really love you;) I am pretty excited about this new adventure. And who knows, maybe I will acquire some followers but even if it’s just me writing things to myself, I will be ok with that too.
