Am I a blogger? Well, based on the fact that I began this blog over a week ago & have nothing to show for it, maybe not. I ask myself, what do I have to say that would be of interest to anyone else? Well, probably not a lot but even if I’m the only one that’s interested I figure it’s a good way to keep a record of where my heads at so here goes…
I suppose I should start with an introduction of sorts so here are my stats:
I am a mother of 2 amazing kids (Lani - 12 & Mitchell - 10) who are my reason for breathing and for whom I would do next to anything for (yes, there are limits but I’m hoping I will never have to reach them).
I am 40 years old.
I work in the front office of a community medical clinic in Eugene, Oregon.
I hate to clean but like to cook.
I love to sing, read, spend time with my kids, family & friends & occasionally knit.
I am passionate & opinionated about issues that can sometimes make people uncomfortable (politics, religion, sexuality to name a few) but I have an open mind & am willing to listen to all sides of an argument before telling you why my opinion is most right ;-)
So that’s the back story in a nutshell. Here’s what’s up so far today…
For breakfast, I started with a yummy tomato & caramelized onion bagel. It was delish (but should have used more tomato slices & the whole onion )(http://pinterest.com/pin/252623860317867930/)
After breakfast (and in between laundry & cleaning) I read an amazing blog by a gentleman named Raymond Vasvari http://raymondvasvari.wordpress.com/2012/03/10/limbaugh-and-sluts/?blogsub=confirming#subscribe-blog
This stirred up my feminist juices so the next thing I know I’m spending an hour watching Up w/Chris Hayes http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21134540/vp/46690928#46691035
both the segment on Rush & then the segment entitled “Women Fight Back”. How is it that we have come so far and yet are still having these conversations? There are so many outdated issues that are still needing resolution it boggles my mind! My hope is that they will be resolved before my kids are adults & they will only be lessons for future generations to hear about in history books!
So that’s where I am so far today… not sure if I’ll be an avid blogger but only time will tell…
Until the next time, be well & keep your mind open! ;-)
