This is me, blogging.

Hey, look, I just set up a blog! Very cool. And now I have to answer one very important question: What should I blog about?

You are probably wondering why a busy, caffeinated mom like me would take the time to set up a blog when she doesn't seem to have a clear topic to blog about. And yes, I'm wondering that right now, too. I think it's about self-discovery or something horribly trite like that.

Before you decide if you want to bother reading this blog or not, let me tell you a little bit about myself. I am a working mother who is very involved in the lives of her two kids, a first-grade son with ADD and an energetic preschool daughter. I recently ended an emotionally abusive relationship with my husband and am living with my parents until the kids and I are back on our feet again. I love to walk my dog, go to the beach, read books, knit something pink for my daughter, waste too much time on Facebook, and cry over sappy movies. I drink too much coffee and not nearly enough wine. I know that I'm a Christian, but I am in the process of exploring how that fits into the life I've just found myself living. I understand a little bit about how and why my life has come to be what it is today, and I know very little about where it's headed, but I do know that one day, I'm going to look back and think about the year 2010 as being the year I started over.

So, now you know. If you choose to follow this blog, that is the journey you are going to be taking with me. It might be a little bumpy, it will definitely be unpredictable, and I'm sure there will be some laughter and tears along the way.

It's a journey I know I won't regret in the end; and if you decide to join me, I'll try to make sure that you don't regret it, either.
