In Which I Ramble About Myself (can't wait to read it, can you?)

It's the first day of May and the first day of Blog Me Maybe. It's also a Tuesday so besides cleaning my bathrooms and doing my laundry, based on the Blog Me Maybe schedule, I've gotta tell you something about myself.

(I've always like this pic, even though it's *gasp* six years old)

So I was born on April 13th, 19-

Did you really think I was going to make you sit through my life story? Ha, don't worry- I'll spare you. In fact, I could just say that I've already told you something about myself (the above cleaning and laundry tidbit) and leave it at that right?

Nah... Boring! Although I hate to say it, my life isn't all that interesting. I hate it when someone I haven't talked to in a long time calls and says, what's up? and my answer is usually, um... you know... nothing much... the usual...

I mean, really. What's there to talk about? I cook and clean and take care of my kids and read and write and watch TV and go to movies and go to church and eat out whenever I can and try to exercise to make up for the eating out and all the Swedish berries and there you have my life in one long run-on sentence.

But know what? I kinda like it. Sometimes I think, this isn't what I thought life would be like. And it's true. Even though I always wanted to get married and have kids and be a mom, I didn't really know what it was like. Sometimes I read books and I think, I wish I was doing that. I wish I was traveling around the world, I wish I was performing on stage somewhere, I wish I lived on a beach , I wish I wish I wish.

The grass is always greener, right? But sometimes, the grass is just fine from my view.

To stop my ramblings, here's one more fact about me: I'm happy. Life might not be as glamorous or exciting as I imagined it would be as a teenager, but it's my life and I don't want to waste it.

So there. Enough about me.

(Next time I do the "about me" post, I'll try to be more focused. I blame The Disenchantments. It got me all philosophical and nostalgic and generally thinking about life.)
