My Very First Blog

I don’t even know where to start really. I always have so much to say that not everyone in my family cares to hear. I also have ADHD so I sometimes talk a mile a minute. Ok, more than sometimes. I have recently had some life changing events that have lead me to have a lot of free time on my hands. I am a mommy of six. Most are grown & living on their own. We are a blended family. Our children have always been referred to as #1, 2,3, etc. It is just easier to say when referring to any of them. So, to make things easier, #1, #3 & #4 are all out of the house. Our #2 is still holding on strong so he can live here rent free & go to IUPUI to finish up college. We are so very proud of him. He has been working since he was 16. He pays for his own college. And apparently, he orders everything he needs from clothes, food & toiletries on Amazon! He is very independent & very intelligent like his father.

Speaking of, today is Fathers Day. I am the only one awake in the house besides for Minion, the cat. I have been getting up very early in the mornings for some reason. I am usually a diligent sleeper. I have to admit, it has been very nice having this quiet time all to myself every morning while everyone sleeps in to eat breakfast & have a hot cup of tea. The littles (#5 & 6) are on summer break so all they want to do is sleep.

About this day. Fathers Day. It is a difficult day for me as I have lost my father 23 years ago. It still feels like yesterday. I envy all of the pictures & posts on Facebook of everyone having cook outs or anything else that shows them spending the day as a family. I wish it were me. But it’s not & I need to focus all of my attention on my children so that they can learn to appreciate what today means, what HE means to them & a family as a whole. It can all be gone in the blink of an eye. I want them to cherish this time with their father. Every freakin minute of it.

I am going to try this blogging thing even if just for myself to release the random thoughts in my head & on my heart.

Life is too short, make it a great day!
