Beginning of my 47th year of life...
Saturday, January 29, 2011
At 3:50 a.m. today I became 46 years old. I don't have a problem with growing older... as I always say: it sure beats the alternative! As I begin the 47th year of my life, I am feeling more reflective though. So beginning today, I am going on a quest to get to know myself better. Since I will be doing so through this blog, you can get to know me a little better, too. (Oh, wait... that might scare readers away....) Here are the basics about me:
I am 46 years old (for those of you who may have missed the whole beginning of this post... lol). I am a single mother with an 11 year old daughter still home. I also have four grown sons, two daughters-in-law, one granddaughter and five grandsons. I live in a small town in Arkansas and have for the last 35 years. Prior to that I lived in Rockford, Illinois (for those of you who noticed I don't have the normal southern accent...). I have held various jobs over the years (more in a later blog), but I am currently "temporarily" disabled due to some health issues (also a subject for a later blog).
Okay, I guess that's enough for tonight (note to self: don't wait 'til bedtime to start writing next time). I'm looking forward to this journey toward self-awareness. Hope you'll check back in from time to time.
