Mother of the Year Goes to.... Not Me

Every morning I go to the gym to exercise. I love it because I have a lot of friends there (it's my adult interaction for the day...hahah...but seriously...), endorphins are released, I feel powerful and strong....etc. Fast forward to about 10 minutes after I arrive home.

Kids are fighting over who grabbed the box of cereal first.

Tears are rolling down cheeks from, "Cameron looked at me in a mean way."

Fights are breaking out between who has to be the flippin' monkey in the middle...

You get the idea.

So pretty much all the good I do at 5:30 in the wee early morning hours gets completely undone. (Perhaps I should schedule my workouts to after the kids leave for school instead?)

Anyway, today was no different. The kids actually all got ready on their own really well without any fights. They had a good 20 minutes to kill before we had to leave for school. They decided to play a game (but not the blasted Monkey in the Middle game...No! No! I banned that game [and 'jinx&#…

Three Reasons Why I Blog

One of the reasons I keep my blogs is because I love writing. Not story-telling writing, or fictional writing, but rather about my life and the humor and lessons I learn from it. Writing is a good release for me--A release from my stress, my calling, my family obligations, my duties around the home, etc. A way to organize my thoughts without thinking about all of my to-do's for the rest of the day.

The other reason I blog is because I want my kids to be able to read about my thoughts and how I went through life. I think sometimes they think I'm perfect, and maybe this blog will be a real eye opener to them. lol. (Or maybe they don't think I'm perfect--in fact, now that we're finally entering the whole "pre-teen" years with Taylor, I'm almost 100% certain she thinks I'm completely imperfect lol).

But the last reason I blog, is because I have kind of a crazy dream that not many people know about. My dream is to publish a book some day using my life's experiences as a personal self-help book for other people. I love reading self-help books from the library--whether that be on health, parenting, or a religious aspect, and I find myself wanting to do the same.

I have a unique voice, and I realize that. I'm too sarcastic to write anything TOO serious. So I imagine that this future self-help book will be more laid back and fun--a quick read. Maybe on life's lessons I've learned the hard way that others can relate to, or spiritual insights I wished I had known when I was younger.

I dont know...does that sound silly?

Some day I hope to compile all my silly and serious stories to do just that. But honestly, I dont envision that happening for quite a while. But it sure makes me excited to dream about...
