What started as me blogging about my search for who I am creatively 4 years into sobriety, is now me learning who I am since my mother’s death on December 27th, 2015. And staying sober, at that. I will still be including some creative stuff since that is how I’m dealing with my mother’s death. I’m an only child and my parents fit the definition of soul mates perfectly. So, the topic of Dad and I learning our new roles in each other’s lives will be a big one. A few other topics that I’m sure will come up are the fact that I have a son who turns 12 (but thinks he’s much older) on Valentine’s Day and a 7 year old daughter that I am homeschooling because I got tired of the nonsense going on within the classroom. Call me crazy, but I think it’s important for the teacher to be smarter than I am. I have a great husband who busts his butt making it feasible for me to stay home and raise our kids. However, he is a business owner in partnership with his parents and two siblings. This job keeps him out of the house from 5:30 am until around 7:30pm and many Saturdays until around 4pm. This means many times I feel like a single parent primarily being the bad guy.
I came to blogging because I know there are people out there like me. I want to share ideas. I want to learn from each other. I want an outlet for the feelings I have storming within me. So, this is me. This is my life. Welcome to it!!
