I’ve had a serious case of writers block today. Most days what I want to write just comes to me, almost like an actual light bulb in my brain. This post has been different. I feel like I have so much to say, and yet nothing is coming. So I’m going to write what is on my mind right now. I usually call it word barf, but for some reason that seems unappealing so maybe we’ll go with word trail mix. Minus the raisins.
I can already hear my family members dying of laughter, not because I am envisioning our family game nights… though those are always full of tears and belly laughs. They are laughing because I am writing a post about games that I love. You see, I am actually not the biggest fan of playing games. Some of the reason is because I’m usually horrible at them, but they also give me anxiety! My mom brain is usually so tired by the end of the day that it can barely tell my hand to pick up the diet coke and pour it in my mouth. Ok, that might be a bit dramatic, but it sure seems that way sometimes!
This post has been a surprisingly difficult one to write! It is so hard to do this topic justice, though I’m sure this is only the first of many posts. I was so privileged to grow up with my amazing sister who was born with spina bifida when I was 3 years old. It wasn’t always fun, and it wasn’t always easy, but I always felt like we were so lucky. I admired the strength of my incredible mother. She never complained and was always positive. Her example was a shining one and still influences my daily life, though in a different way than I had anticipated.
I turned 30 twenty-two minutes ago. You guys, I just turned 30! What is my life? I am pretty sure that last year I turned 21, so where have I been the last nine years? Oh yeah, kids. And laundry. That’s where I’ve been. Ha! I very clearly remember the day my mom turned 30, and I remember thinking that she was so old. Now that I am here it feels so surreal. In fact, I woke up this morning to several happy birthday messages (which I absolutely adored) and actually had to call my husband to ask him if it was in fact my birthday and if I had somehow missed the last glorious day of my 20’s. It honestly felt like I was either losing my mind, or that I was right in the middle of a Twilight Zone episode. Side note- does the fact that I know what the Twilight Zone is make me old?? (Curse you Disney for changing the Tower of Terror!)
Hi Friends! Welcome to my blog! I am so happy that you are here, and honestly so happy that I am here too! Writing has always been one of my greatest loves but as a busy wife, mother, and business owner it became progressively harder to make time for this little passion of mine. I felt like something was missing, but I wasn’t sure how to incorporate it back in my life.
