Letters to Mr. L

Okay, so it’s official – I suck at this whole blogging thing. I love it, but yet.. I don’t love it.  I’m trying to be accountable… I love writing (so I can remember things), and I LOVE all my readers.  Don’t know how many of you there are, but I LOVE YOU regardless.  I have gotten so much support from readers after spilling my guts about some rather personal issues. 

Anywayyyy – I’m going to get better. This was a New Year’s resolution after all 🙂

So I’m stealing borrowing this idea from a fellow blogger. Check out her list at http://www.babymakingmachine.com/2012/11/30-things-my-kids-should-know-about-me.html

It’s a series of posts for my son, Mr. L. 


So someday (let’s hope it’s wayyy down the road) he can come and read all about his crazy mama.

Here’s the plan. Complete this list (while subtracting a few and possibly adding a few of my own) within 2013. You can do it, Jessica. Come on now, all with me, YOU CAN DOOOO IT, JESSICA.

The List –

1. List 20 random facts about yourself.
2. Describe 3 legitimate fears you have and how they became fears.
3. Describe your relationship with your spouse.
4. List 10 things you would tell your 16 year-old self, if you could.
5. What are the 5 things that make you most happy right now?
6. If you could have three wishes, what would you wish for?
7. What is your dream job, and why?
8. What are 5 passions you have?
9. List 10 people who have influenced you and describe how.
10. Describe your most embarrassing moment.
11. Describe 10 pet peeves you have.
12. Describe a typical day in your current life.
13. What’s the hardest part of growing up?
14. Describe 5 and weaknesses strengths you have.
15. Describe when you knew your spouse was the one or how I fell in love.
16. What are your 5 greatest accomplishments?
17. What is the thing you most wish you were great at?
18. What do you think your spouse loves most about you?
19. How did you feel the moment you became a parent?
20. Describe 3 significant memories from your childhood.
21. Describe your relationship with your parents.
22. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years? 15 years?
23. What’s your favorite holiday and why?
24. What’s your favorite and least favorite thing about parenthood?
25. If you could have dinner with anyone in history, who would it be and what would you eat?
26. What popular notion do you think the world has most wrong?
27. What is your favorite part of your body and why?
28. What’s your favorite quality in your spouse?
29. What are your hopes and dreams for your prosperity?
30. List 10 things you would hope to be remembered for.

You can all join me. Do it. Join me.
I’m planning on revealing my 20 random facts later tonight 🙂

This is for me.

Well, if you are stumbling upon my page…welcome, and I apologize in advance for my future
all-over-the-board ramblings.

This blog is for me – although I don’t mind if you follow along.

As I woke up today I realized, it is 2013. Say it with me – it. is. 2013.
Where the hell (I also curse, my apologies) did 2012 go!? I can barely remember what I did yesterday – and not because I was drunk – but because I feel as if my life is just zooming by and
I swear, I can’t remember any of it!

Like right now my child is begging me to do puzzles with him on the iPad, telling me how weird I am, laughing hysterically while trying to put his hand down my tank top and pretending to crack eggs on my head (wait…I’m the weird one?). While my boyfriend texts me details from his couch about all the funny moments in some episode of Big Bang Theory. No wonder it’s taken me over two hours to write my first post. No wonder I can’t remember anything.

Thus, I’m starting a blog. Everyone has a blog, so SO CAN I! Plus it’s on my resolution list – which means this blog will last about a month. I tried this once before (2009?) – I’ll link it some time when ya’ll get more comfortable with me – it’s deep and dark and reveals too much of my past – but we’ll get to that too!

Bare with me here – some of you may know me, some of you may not – but I invite you to get to know me (as I further get to know myself). I’m not some witty, fantastic writer or anything. I’m just a normal (questionable), single, 20-something year old mama of one two-year-old ball of fire and energy – trying to raise this boy and find my place in life, love, and work; all while trying to renovate this little 1920s home I bought in 2011.
