In this draconian

Who am I?

Well, I'm finally attempting to make my mark in the blogoshpere. This is something I've often considered, but quite honestly, I can't imagine having anything to say that other people would find remotely interesting. That said, I think this blog could become very therapeutic for me, and hopefully for others as well.

I guess maybe I should start with a little something about myself. My name is Di, and I am a slightly manic mother of three who works full time. I struggle daily with trying to find that "perfect" balance and know deep in my heart that despite my faults, God loves me just the way I am. I am the wife of a wonderful, big-hearted, anal-retentive, fun-loving teddy bear, Lugnut D. He is my rock, my protector, and my biggest supporter. My first-born, Sissy K, is 14 and every bit a teenage girl. She is a competitive tumbler, a former gymnast, a cheerleader, and a WONDERFUL big sister. Diva P is 3 and incredibly opinionated. She likes to help, loves to have her way, and ADORES all things princess. Peanut R, the caboose of this little girl train we have going, is 17 months old and we affectionately call her Stealth. She is quiet, observant, and always ready with hugs.

The craziness that is life often prevents me from taking time to reflect: on the day, on decisions to be made, on life itself. My hope is that this blog will allow me to spend a little more time reflecting and in turn, learning from mistakes, sharing my story with others, and forming relationships with people like me.

Thank you for joining me on this journey.
