Predictably, that's when everything changed. In the blink of an eye, I found myself married. In the next blink, I was pregnant. Completely sober for the first time in a decade or two, I found myself submerged in a world I previously had only peeked into from a comfortable distance. Quitting work and starting my life as a stay-at-home mom, I realized there was so much more to this than I ever could have imagined. There is no "learning curve" here, but a steep cliff, instead, as time begins to fly and every day is a new lesson (or ten). With no homework and no job, my brain began to go nuts for an outlet.
Enter the blog...
My goal here is to share what I have learned about being a mom, keeping house (quite literally a hobby for me), and trying to retain some shred of the former shenanigans that made me who I am. I've been baking and cooking like crazy lately, so I'll throw in the recipes that work, along with some ranting from time to time about whatever it is that inspires me to rant. I think my life is pretty great and, hopefully, the things I've learned will make your life easier, tastier, and more fun.
...and that's all for now.
