mommy&everything

trying to find myself and humor in life

Hello world – it’s time to seize the day!

Hello world here I am and welcome to “mommy&everything” (thank you CC Fowler for helping me come up with a name). I have wanted to start a blog for a long time but I just could not get up the courage to do it. I would talk about it and come up with blogs in my head on the way to work (or during work depending on the type of day I was having) but I was too afraid to actually do anything about.

A couple of weeks ago I worked up the courage to actually go on WordPress and register for a site (again thank you CC Fowler) but then I started to read other blogs and thought there was NO WAY I could publish anything. All the other blogs I read were so smart/funny/witty/sarcastic/insightful, what the heck was I thinking. I completely psyched myself out and figured I would get to it at another time.

Well then last week my grandfather died. Grandpa was 93, a father to 3 daughters, grandpa to 5 and a great-grandfather to 8!! Grandpa had seen it all and then some but still he never seemed to appreciate it. Gramps was more of a glass-is-half-empty kind of person. It was always easier for Grandpa to comment on “all” his friends/family had rather than see what he had right in front of him.

That was my wake up call. I didn’t want to be 93 (God willing) and look back on my life and regret not doing something because I was scared or didn’t think I was good enough. I was tired of being afraid to try new things and always think “what if.” So I decided today is the day, today I will seize the day and start my blog!!

I know my blog will not be perfect. There are bound to be typos (you know spell check doesn’t always catch everything) and grammatical errors and I am sure others may not always get my humor (gasp) but it will be mine and I can say I did it.

So I invite you to come with me on my blogging journey. Come along with me as I share my stories of being a mommy to 4 boys while trying to balance work and all the “stuff” that life throws my way. I think Grandpa would be proud.

  1. Yepee! I knew you could do it. This is really wonderful – a true testament to who you are.

  2. Good for you for having the courage to publish this! I am sorry to hear about your grandfather – I lost my grandma recently also. But I’m sure he is smiling down and proud of you and your new endeavor, and happy you are learning from him and his journey. Cheers, and looking forward to reading more!
