Jumpin' on the blog-wagon

Never really considered myself the bloggin' type...but figured what the hey. Along with all my other spontaneous off the wall ideas, this could self-destruct in a week or two...but at least I can say I tried.

Without further ado...let me introduce myself. I'm a 20 something year old mother/wife/student trying to discover how I fit into this crazy chaotic mess of life. Okay, I admit...mess may be a wee bit overly-dramatic. From here on out we shall refer to it as "my quest to find myself in this journey of life".

Much better.

Pause for a photo op:

I'm suffering from the worlds worse case of career ADHD. I have the attention span of a two year old...more specific MY two year old, when it comes to deciding what exactly it is I want to do with my life. What do I want to be when I grow up. I will most likely be pondering this very question on my 50th birthday. I've considered everything from:

Interior Designer
Professional Boxer
Extreme Storm Chaser
Emergency Room Physician

The list goes on and on.
and on.

Until I get this all sorted out I've decided to hone in on my skills of titles I've already Mother and Wife. Never during my rebelious years in the Army (oh yeah I did the whole Army thing for 6 years) did I ever imagine I would be chasing a *rugrat around, perfecting the art of being a stay at home mom.

*rugrat reference*

I was an untamed soul who needed, desperately needed, to be independant and free to do as I pleased. I'm still in an adjustment period, with my daughter's 2nd birthday fast approaching in October. Although there are times when I want to close the oven door on my head, I am loving every minute of this stay at home lifestyle. Not too many women have the opportunity and privilege to stay at home and watch their children grow.

But. And their's always a but. I'm soon to lose my SAHM status, and upgrade to (or downgrade) to full-time nursing student, who entertains her rugrat and plays housewife in her spare time. I've been piddling with college for the last 3 years, and have 100 credit hours...and nothing to show for it. Except for a pretty snazzy GPA. (pat on back) I've changed degree plans more times than I can count. It's time I got serious.

Awesome blog girlie!!! Welcome to the bandwagon, lol! I hope you keep it up, I love how you express yourself. So exciting about becoming a nursing student! I've had that in my mind for a while but not sure when or if I'll be able to since my dh just enrolled in school. I'm not sure we can both do school at the same time, lol. We'll see though. Keep us posted!! Off to catch up on the rest of your blog!
