Okay, so here it is. The “Here I Am”. The “Get to Know Me”. The “Who in the Hell Do I Think I Am That Anyone Would Want to Read About Me?” My very first entry!
I am a thirty-something mother of two kids and a happily married woman of 9 years. I have a 6 year old daughter about to enter first grade and an almost 3 year old son about to drive me crazy. Why, you might ask? Because I spend every single waking minute of the day with him and have since the second he was born. That’s right. I’m a SAHM. For you non-acronymic people out there that stands for Stay-At-Home-Mom. I have been doing the “super mom” schpiel for almost 3 years now and I’m no better at it today than I was the day I started. I actually used to be a contributing member of the work force until I decided to do my part for society and add two more souls to the ever growing over-population problem in this world. Now I stay at home to help “enrich” their lives and make a difference. Right. More on this topic at a later date as I simply do not have the emotional stamina right now to go there. (Edited to add: I do actually love my kids and wouldn’t necessary jump at the chance at a full-time job right now. However, I reserve the right to freely complain as this is all I currently have going for me. Just in case you were wondering.)
I decided to start this blog because I have a lot to say. Just ask anyone. I’m also lucky enough to have a tech-savvy hubby who graciously offered to build my website. Okay, this may be an overstatement. But as any happily married woman out there knows, we’ve got leverage and we ain’t afraid to use it! I plan on blogging about anything and everything that inspires me, confuses me, amuses me or just plain pisses me off! Also, I am just looking for something to fill my time that doesn’t involve cooking, cleaning or wiping up poop. Just sayin’.
So, in conclusion, I hope you enjoy my musings and I certainly look forward to any comments or stories any of you may have for me! I am in serious need of some entertainment people!
Love to all, Mindy

Your Dad and I just sat down and read your blog. It was fantastic! We always knew you had something special in you, and now you’ve found it ! You go girl. We are proud, proud,proud of you !
Thank you guys!! It was either this or start working at Taco Bell. It’s been a lot of fun already. And I actually bought a book on Blogging to help me come up with new ideas =)
Mindy, Wow! Thank goodness you are using this special gift. Your blog reads as if you’ve been at this for a very long time. You are so funny and descriptive in your writing. Kim
Thank you Kim! I am really having a good time at this! Jer is now walking around the house in constant fear that he’ll give me some good writing material. =)
Dear Aunt Mindy,
In case the “Aunt” part of your title didn’t tip you off, this is Nephew Matt “commenting” on your blog. It’s really entertaining, but a tip- If you really love Jack and want him to remain in your custody, I would refrain from calling him “Evil Incarnate” or any such derogatory terms.(I’m just kidding. It’s the internet- You can say anything) Other than that, the blog is perfect, even though I haven’t heard any mention of your perfect, wonderful, friendly, nice, handsome, and funny nephew………… Bryan.
Thank you so much for “commenting” on my little project. As always, your opinion means the world to me. I will try and refrain from referring to Jack in anything but the nicest of contexts! Thank you for your tip! Seriously, you are a really witty writer and should seriously consider starting your own blog! Uncle Jer could help set you up…just say the word! Love ya, Aunt Mindy
