Since this is a new blog for me, I thought I’d write a post for anyone who just might be interested in following me. (Which I would SO LOVE by the way!)
Obviously I just turned 40, like 2 weeks ago. I also made a huge change in my life and have been trying to make the most of it.
I have three children, SweetPea who is 13, THE BOY who is 11, and Daisy who is 10.
I love birds, flowers, trees and nature in general, so I will be posting about that.
I also love to cook new recipes and participate in Menu Plan Monday most weeks.
I’m an avid reader and plan to post more book reviews. I read mostly historical fiction, Christian fiction, classics, and the occasional mystery/horror book.
I’m trying to lose weight, so I will probably complain – uh I mean DISCUSS exercise, weight loss, etc.
I am a fan of television – namely Biggest Loser, Glee, Clean House, What Not to Wear, Dr. Who, My Big Life (Kirstie Alley) Ruby, and anything that starts with CSI. I don’t watch regularly, but I also like House, Dancing with the Stars, Grey’s Anatomy, Trauma, and Mercy.
I LOVE NETFLIX! I have Netflix set up through our Wii system and we watch lots of great tv series, movies, etc. I’m really in to Dr. Who season 1 right now. SweetPea has discovered Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel – she is addicted!
I talk daily walks – sometimes alone, sometimes with the kids. We visit lots of parks to keep it interesting. We bird watch while walking and also look for things to keep in our “Nature Jar” – feathers, eggs, bones, rocks, etc.
I homeschool Daisy. She is in 4th grade and this has worked for us for many years. I have another blog dedicated to this, but I’m sure I’ll be bringing it up here as well.
I work about 15 hours per week doing bookkeeping for a medical practice – Daisy goes with me and has her own school area there. I work another 20 hours a week doing medical transcription at home – which I really love.
Big girl or not, I love fashion and subscribe to several fashion blogs. I love makeup, jewelry, perfume, lotions, potions, etc.
Other things I may (or may not?) blog about:
Travel (we are doing a historical vacation this summer! Colonial Williamsburg, Liberty Bell, Washington DC, Plymouth Rock, etc)
Writing (I love to write but don’t do much of it anymore – I’d like to change that, but I am already at the computer much of the time between work and FB!)
Ok, I think that about covers it! Me in a nutshell. If you read all of this – you are just about the awesomest person ever. If you skimmed, hey, that’s pretty awesome too.
I hope you will subscribe to my blog or at least come back and visit me again!
(Am I starting to sound desperate?)
Sherry – 40 and daring to change…
