it’s been two weeks since I’ve posted anything and I’m just not feeling the whole blog motivation lately. It’s not for lack of post ideas (I have a list of things I want to post about, spanning back to Easter 2012, but more for “I have so many things I WANT to do (spend time with SuperDad, work out, blog, read, sleep) that I feel guilty doing any of them so instead, I mindlessly surf the internet and do none of them! It’s pretty self defeating and needs to end! Then since I haven’t blogged in weeks, I feel like I need to play catch up, which makes me avoid it more.
So I decided I’m going to be a HUGE cheater and jump into the “Blog Every Day in May” challenge and try to post something for each of the prompts. I will probably combine a few prompts into one post until I get caught up, but I think trying to blog every day and the whole “challenge” concept of it will help me get back into the swing of things! It can’t hurt, right?
I was born in the Children’s Hospital 30 years ago as a very sick baby. I had numerous surgeries and spent the first year of my life on oxygen. Let’s just say, I was very fortunate to grow up into a pretty healthy adult despite everything. I grew up in a small town with my Mom and Dad and two older brothers. As a kid, I was a tomboy and my favorite things were animals, riding my bike, reading, and my small close circle of friends. Oh, and I loved school. I grew up with a Sunday drive being our family’s main entertainment and “vacation” meant visiting my Grandma in Milwaukee. My brother was my best friend when I was a kid and I actually met SuperDad through him. After high school, I got my Associate’s Degree at a local 2 year college with plans to go away to college. Instead, SuperDad and I bought a house. The same year we bought our house, we adopted a greyhound and became engulfed in the world of greyhound rescue. Since high school (and prior to today), I’ve worked as tech support, a bank teller (where I met my BFF), and an office manager. In 2009, I became involved in an awesome online community and to this day, those folks are some of my best friends. In 2009, my brother and SIL had a daughter and we decided a kid seemed like a good idea, so we followed suite and Mason was born in 2010. The rest of the story can be found here on the blog.
Are you doing the Post a Day challenge? Do you have a blog post that has the very very condensed version of your life story? I’d love to read it!
