A Little About Me

I am one of nine children.  Luckily, most of us live close enough to spend a lot of time together.  Our children are also growing up together, which I think is so nice for them.  Being part of a big family has its good points and not so good points.  I'm sure anyone with a large family understands.  Growing up with a single mom made things tough on her but we always managed to get by.  My mother is one of the most beautiful people I know.  She has always been there, no matter what.  I don't know what I would do without her.

As far as siblings go, I have been blessed, for the most part.  I have an older sister, Danielle who I would chose as a friend, even if she wasn't my sister.  Like most families, mine has its share of drama and conflict.  I have gotten to a place in my life, where I have decided that I am going to minimize my contact to preserve my sanity.  Some think it is harsh but I think its been a long time coming.  Sometimes we have to care about ourselves as much as we care about others.

I am finally going back to school.  I was just accepted to Boston University's Graduate Program for the fall.  I will be going back to get my MSW.  I have been wanting to do this for quite some time.  Now that my children are all grown, I have no excuse to continue putting it off.  I am looking forward to it.  I enjoy putting on my thinking cap...

I so much understand family drama and needing to just back off sometimes! I also agree with taking care of yourself. That is a lesson I am learning, although not very graciously, I must admit! I so much enjoyed reading this post.

Many hugs..........
