A Little About Lil Ole' Me

I got to thinking about what I would want to write for a personal post and I kept coming up empty.  My life all in all is pretty boring.  So since this is actually my first blog post with The Romance Troupe I figured I'd introduce myself....

For starters, this is me. ROLL TIDE!  *Waves hi to everyone in internetland* 
So to begin, this is generally my first thought in the morning....

My mornings generally start with me smacking my alarm quiet a few times around 5am, then getting ready, grabbing my first cup of coffee and writing before waking my lovely evil spawn for school. 

I work five days a week at my wonderful day job where I am an administrative assistant (basically a glorified receptionist/customer service rep) for a copper redraw mill just five minutes down the road from my house.  No matter what goes on during my day I absolutely love my job.  I love the people I work with, they make every day worth being there.  I love working with customers (most of them) and talking to different people throughout my day.  No one answers the phone like I do. ;-)  So when I gripe about working on spreadsheets or something of that nature that's what it involves.  Gotta love earning that paycheck.

When I'm not at work I am at home doing my second job as a housewife.  I say job but we all know being a housewife pays...NOTHING!  Unfortunately.  Anyway, I get off work at 4:30pm, pick up my kids, come home, cook, clean, help with homework, write, and maybe relax before going to bed and starting all over again the next day. 

On a side note, I would like to know where the housewives are that look like this....

Because generally I look like this.....

 Now we do get to have fun and/or relax on the weekends.  We try to do things and get out of the house at least for a little while.  Just last weekend we went to the lake and this weekend it's the zoo.  We take one big trip a year and maybe one or two small ones as well.

Small trip with just our teenager and her friend to Gatlinburg, TN.

Big trip with everyone to Disney this past summer.
So in a nut shell my life revolves around kids, work, the house, and things like that.  Oh and of course writing.  I squeeze it in when and where I can because that is my passion in life.  It keeps me sane from this crazy life I live every day. 
I have many things that  make me smile and get me through my days.

Other than my amazing kids....
And my amazing husband....
I have a few favorite shows...
 This doesn't even begin to cover it but these four are the main ones.

I could live off coffee.  It is the nectar of the Gods!
Football season is my favorite season!!! I LOVE college football! ROLL TIDE BABY!

And um, Darth Vader is my hero.  Just saying.
So there you have it.  A little bit about me.  Like I said, there's nothing really exciting but I have no complaints.  I'm an everyday wife, mother, receptionist, writer, and hopeless romantic who still believes you can still have first kisses even after being married and not going to bed angry. 
If you've read this entire thing and haven't fallen asleep yet....

Thanks everyone!!!
