I'm participating in the A to Z blog challenge this month, for the first time. Since I'm new to this challenge, I thought my A post should be about me, kind of an introduction.
My name is Christine. I'm thirtysomething, married, with two daughters. I'm really tall, but no I never played basketball because I suck at sports. Seriously.
I love books, coffee, tea, and being outside. I'm a procrastinator. I'm impatient. I'm an only child - read that as you will. I feel 21 and 45 at the same time. I'm a little freaked out by the fact that our oldest daughter is old enough to practice driving (okay, a lot freaked out by that). I'm a little bit of a smartass. I love to write but I don't let myself have enough time to do it seriously. I hate messiness but I also hate cleaning. I prefer dark chocolate over milk chocolate. I've lived in the south my entire life even though I don't sound like it. I work full time outside the home, although if we could afford it I'd really rather not (I do enjoy my job, though, that's not the problem at all). And that is a completely opposite view than five years ago. Somehow when my oldest started middle school she finally seemed to need me around more, and then two years later her little sister was born and I had two babies wanting their mommy... it really tugs at my heart! I'm not a Martha Stewart or Rachel Ray wanna-be, I don't have the time or energy to do either. I don't sew. I'm slightlly addicted to Pinterest. Oh, I'm also pro-breastfeeding (not anti-formula, there's a difference) and support gay marriage. I do blog about those subjects occasionally, along with other serious topics. I don't have a particular theme for my blog - just myself and what's important to me or what I need to work out in writing.
If I haven't scared you off - welcome! Glad to have you along for the ride!
