Ah, my first blog.

I gave this stuff a whirl a year or so ago with LiveJournal, it didn't pan out. I blog occasionally on MySpace, but then my readership is limited. I have a degree in writing (ha ha, a B.S. in BS) so I figure I should put it to good use. Well, to use, anyway...the "good" part is yet to be determined.

I'm a stay-at-home mom to Thing 1 and Thing 2. Thing 1 is 3 years old and has boundless spirit; she does everything with 110% of her being, whether its screaming like a banshee or hugging you for no reason at all. I sincerely hope this spirit stays with her throughout her life - it will bring her unimaginable success, I'm sure of it. Thing 2 is but a few months old, he was born in October 2007. He's quite the alert little fellow and has been since Day One.

I've been married to my husband, Rob, for about 5 1/2 years. We met while I was in college at Slippery Rock University and he was visiting his mom in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. We hit it off that week and two months later, he moved from California to Pennsylvania to be with me. In May 2003, we migrated west and landed in Fremont, where (for the most part) we've been ever since. We've carved out a nice little life for ourselves here and I'm really glad we took that leap.

I'm a Republican, I love the Pittsburgh Steelers, any concoction you can find in a bakery, and "The Office." Damn writers strike. I go the extra mile for my friends because that's what real friends do. My family is everything to me, even the ones who've seemingly written us off because we moved out here (out of sight, out of mind?). I may not be perfect, but I'm a people-pleaser to a fault, as well as brutally honest. If you can't take a good dose of truth, don't talk to me! I'm also a gossip. I can't keep a secret to save my life.

Lest I reveal too much and leave nothing to the imagination...or to write about in the future...I shall end this post. I look forward to sharing my daily musings with whomever accidentally stumbles upon my little niche of weblife.
