Not sure what made me decide to do a blog but HERE GOES! Just like my title, I live in the land of no secrets. At least that’s what I’ve been told by my friend, Joan, who I’m sure you will learn more about throughout this journey, with or without her knowledge. ;-)
What I want my blog to be: fun, inappropriate sometimes, heartfelt, sometimes serious. I’m not doing it for any specific purpose such as to teach you all fun recipes cause I’m not good at it, or to be really insightful and change your life. I’m doing this mainly to try it out, let it evolve on it’s own, and see what happens. I’m sure there will be plenty of “mom” posts, both about my son, Barrett, and about my pets. Along with that, I love to read and I’m trying to get back into it after having Barrett so I’ll probably have book recommendations. Same goes with movies and TV shows. And of course it will be about all the adventures and fun stuff I find along the way. We will see where it goes!
What I’m hoping my blog won’t be: judgmental, full of expert advice, or pompous.
Just a little bit about me: I’m a social worker and have done hospice & oncology in one form or another for the last 11 years. I absolutely love it. I’m married to the best guy ever, no lie. I think my family and friends like Chad more than me most of the time and I’m okay with that. We have 5, yes FIVE, dogs and 1 poor cat. And, last but certainly not least, we have a 7 month old son, Barrett, who has my heart. He certainly wasn’t in the plan originally but because I’m married to the best guy ever, I just couldn’t imagine him not being a father and being the best dad ever. He’s not let me down yet. Sappy, I know. My friend, Joan, says I force friendships meaning, if I meet you and like you I decide we will be friends and it happens. It’s been pretty true to my life looking back. I’m okay with that too. Hopefully all the friends I have say the same. HA! The first friendship I remember “forcing” was with my friend, Amanda, in 3rd grade. I’m sure there were more before that but she’s the first I know for sure I pushed into it. We are still friends to this day so I’d say I have a good record!
I won’t go on and on. I’ll leave that to other blog posts. In the meantime, tell me a little about you!
