I am shocked.
I went to wordpress to start a new blog about my experience with motherhood. I signed in since I had a blog already started, and I was shocked that someone had started one in my name! Using my password! And that someone was . . . . me! 5 years ago!
Didn’t even remember.
So much has happened since then (stage-4 cancer, fertility issues, three new jobs, my husbands tenure process (ordeal!)), but the posts are spot on and fun, so I am going to continue that blog: phatmom.wordpress.com.
I have just started working from home, and I can actually stand to be on the computer for fun, instead of coming home from my 8-6 job and hour commute exhausted wanting to get as far away from any screen as possible.
So for those who want to know what has happened in the past four years . . .
2008 Moved back to Dallas from the Big Island of Hawaii. I know . . . . why, right?
2009 Got cancer. All over. Nearly died. Husband got tenure (whoopee! infinity X smiley face)
2010 Got better. Picked up the pieces. Bought a house.
2011 Got a real job that actually used my undergraduate and grad school degree in business.
2012 Started thinking about kiddos and was told I couldn’t have any. Planned and went on my dream trip to Africa. Got knocked up (happily) right after I got back from the Kalahari.
2013 Started an amazing new job where I get to work from home and take care of my darling Sebastian, who is on the way!
I am still in shock that I have a blog, so no further posts for now until I am calm, cool, and collected, but so glad to be back throwing my thoughts into the internet ether, hoping for an echo!
