It's been awhile since I've done this blogging thing. 3 year, actually. But as I am just entering my 38th year, I've decided to do things that scare me. And coming back to this, sharing more of my life with you all, scares the shit out of me. As much as I share of Facebook or Instagram, I keep much more to myself. Mostly, the struggles, the failures, and all of the things that make me sad.
A lot has happened in the last few years. My stepson graduated from high school, got married, and started a family (not necessarily in that order). I now have 2 high school boys at home and my baby girl is off to junior high. I've become a band mom, taking up the role of Vice President of the band boosters. My mom has left her Minnesota roots and moved to Iowa to be near the kids. I've become a certified group fitness instructor and teach classes at our local fitness center. Oh, and I've started a store with 5 friends. A STORE! I still don't believe it myself.
It's been a whirlwind. Many times bumpy and frustrating. But, we've come out on the other side having learned a lot. And, I'd like to believe we're finally figuring this life/parenting/marriage thing out. We're entering a whole different chapter in our lives. Preparing our children to go off on their own. We're thinking about what we're going to do after they've gone. Planning for the future...also scares the shit out of me.
So, I thought what better time to start my blog back up. It won't always be pretty, but it's sure to be hilarious. I hope you'll join me. -K
