this (and some minor variations of this) has been my ‘about me’ headliner since I started this blog almost 6 (gasp!) years ago:
i'm a wannabe 1950's housewife continually searching for my sanity. nose-wiper, owie-kisser, connoisseur of pbs cartoons... the Lord has blessed me with a wonderful husband and 3 beautiful children, loving parents, and a new, GORGEOUS house. i love knitting, reading, gardening, scrapbooking, THRIFTING!, blogging and otherwise avoiding the housework i should be doing (but i'm trying to do better and keep this beautiful house looking beautiful). oh, and i NEVER capitalize unless ABSOLUTELY necessary.
I need to change it, but I wanted to preserve it, because it has described me for a good long period of my life. a lot of it is still true. I am still amazingly blessed in my life and my calling to be the wife of a wonderful man and the mother of these awesome children. I’m no better about housework than I ever have been, and my avoidance hobbies are still pretty much the same. I also still don’t capitalize. because I’m lazy. and non-conformist.
but really, the nose-wiping, owie-kissing period has passed (sigh), and pbs has rubbed me the wrong way on more than one occasion lately. if I’m a connoisseur of any tv shows lately, it is probably more like “top gear”, “the A-team”, “my little pony”, and “power rangers”. (although I usually have to leave the room for that last one…)
and I’m going to come clean here. I like to say that I love gardening, but in reality, I only like to say that. actual gardening… not so much.
so I guess now I have to think of something new to say about myself.
