Okay, I am finally starting a blog. I know they have been around for quite a while and pretty popular. I just felt that I didn't really have much to say that would be too interesting, but I found that I have a lot to say, interesting or not.

My life has been interesting, full of great joy, great sorrow, great loves, family feuds and self discovery. I have been described as quiet, reserved, hard to read. I have never thought of myself in these terms but perception is reality. I try too hard to make others happy. I don't think I'm unlike lots of other people out there.
It doesn't take much to make me happy. It takes a lot to make me mad, I mean a lot. I've gotten more assertive as I've gotten older. I've also grown more daring. I enjoy that I have more time to do things I want to do. No rushing to daycare by 5:30 to pick up toddlers, no more trying to balance homework, dinner, hockey, dancing, car repairs, PTO meetings. I miss that too.
I have tried to be a great mom. My children have been my life. Now that they are all young adults, I've had to think more about my identity and where I go from here. In doing that, I've thought a lot about how I got here. How my life is probably more than 1/2 way over and I've accomplished a lot but still have more to do. Life goes by so quickly...
