Hi all. Thanks for the initial interest. This is my first ever blog, so I will try to make it entertaining, and hopefully you’ll come back for more.
I decided tonight (September 29, 2014 @ 5:00 am) that I wanted, and maybe NEEDED, to start a blog!
As my blog title states, I am a distracted mommy!!! I work shift work, 5 days/ 40 hours a week, and in those five days, I rotate through all three shifts. . . every week. My sleep schedule is very off kilter!
I have a sweetheart for a son, named River. He just turned 3 this month.
In addition to my bundle of joy, I have also recently acquired a new husband, Jason (whom i love dearly and passionately, thank you Lord for that) and two teenage step-children (Kasey 15 & Eric 14. . . two of the most well behaved and respectful children I know!) So that brings my family count to 5.
Obviously my husband and I are on our second marriages. So this means there is a visitation schedule for the youngins. His is the standard every other weekend routine. . . mine is more complicated, but I’ll talk about that at another time.
So to get back to the reason for the blog. . . I have an endless supply of delusions of grandeur, but an almost 0 percentage of follow through. I mean, I DO follow through with some things, sometimes, for a while, thennnn . . . I lose interest, motivation, time, or even just forget that I’m supposed to be doing something. . . like keeping up with a blog???
So, my most recent goals include: starting on a healthy diet/lifestyle again, doing cutesy crafts and decorations for my house and with my son, working on new recipes that HOPEFULLY coincide with my healthy lifestyle, making and executing a Christmas list, consistently waking up early enough to be on time for work!!!!! Working on breaking my son of whining every time he tries to ask me for something, and many many more “awesome ideas for my life” that I would LOVE to follow through with!
I thought I should keep making lists, but that’s just going to add up to a bunch of wasted paper.
Maybe a journal, but same thing with the paper. Plus carpel tunnel 😉
But the idea of a blog came to me. And I got kind of excited. Maybe this will be something fun that will also serve as reminder and motivation to keep track of my progress and to make me accountable for staying motivated with these things that I deem important!
So I hope your interest is sparked, and you continue to tune in . . . and I hope that I don’t let you, and myself down!
