It's All About ME!

So what am I about?

I'm about beng positive.  For example, I'm positive I'm a dork.

Ba dum DUM!

No but really, it may be trite, but I DO believe in the power of positive thinking.  I do believe in the harm that negative energy can do.  I'm happy more often than not and I do not attribute that to a series of fortunate occurences or to having all the right building blocks of life all stacked neatly.

I attribute that to my positive outlook.  I TRY not to harbor anger, hate, resentment, jealousy, bitterness, envy, etc etc etc. 

"Try", of course, being the operative word.  It's by no means easy to do but I've found that if I don't take myself too seriously then half the battle is won. 

So what else?

I'm about being a mom.  I have three wonderful, incredible, beautiful children.  My eldest, Buttercup, is 15.  And looking forward to getting her learner's permit in about a month.  AAAAAAIIIIIEEEEEE!!!!  But she's also got a really good head on her shoulders (despite her goofy streak a mile long....hmm....wonder where she gets THAT from), a killer sense of humor and better taste in music than I do.  (She?  Likes Queen and David Bowie and Guns n' Roses and Erasure and Duran Duran.  Me?  I like Britney Spears).  She has chosen to put her schoolwork BEFORE being popular and cool and yet despite that, she's got a great circle of friends.  I am fully aware of how lucky I am with her, how so many kids her age get lured into bad things (BAD BAD BAD!).

My middle child, my boy, my Opus.  Oh, I don't know where to even start with that yellow headed kid.  He's a wild child.  He's on the wrestling team for his school and all of his female friends are cheerleaders.  I keep saying to him, "Don't be that boy".  But it's not quite as bad as it sounds.  He's not the popular/dumb jock.  He has a lot of friends but he's more the class clown type than the BMOC type, you know?  He'll be 13 this year, though, and I'm dreading having two teenagers.  Calgon, take me away!!!

And that leads me to my youngest and the one I think I have to worry about the most.  Little Miss Maisy Mouse.  She's ten.  And always has a boyfriend.  Sometimes more than one at a time.  One of her new friends has a purple streak in her hair.  I said to her, "Your hair is purple."  She said, "I know".  I said, "Does your mom know your hair is purple?"  She said, "My mom is the one who took me to get it done".


All I know is MY Maisy is not coloring her hair.

In addition to her questionable friends (one of her boyfriends last year used to throw rocks at smaller kids.....luckily once Maisy found out about this she broke up with him so all is not yet lost) she's also a very sensitive child....sensitive bordering perhaps on manipulative.  She uses her tears to get her own way.

So let's recap:  Boy crazy.  Questionable friends.  Crocodile tears.  Yep.  Gonna have my hands full with her.

Moving on.

I'm about being a friend.

I am blessed to have the most amazing, wonderful group of girl friends to ever exist.  At some point you can be sure I'll talk about all of them.  But for now, all I can say is that I wish to be as good to them as they've been to me.  Without going into too much detail, it's been an....interesting year for me.....and my girls have been with me every step of the way.  I look at the person I was at the beginning of the year and compare her to who I am now....and the difference astounds me.  And I have these lovely ladies to that.

And more....

I'm about cooking
I'm about reading
I'm about shopping
I'm NOT about mindless TV watching but I DO love me some Glee
I'm (sometimes) about partying.
I'm NOT (currently) about boys.  More than likely, eventually I'll get on the dating train again but for now, I am enjoying my life to much to mess it up with some silly stinky boy! 
I'm about beer.  I'm a total beer nerd.
Right now, I'm about Ravens football.
I'm about being healthy. 

And now.....I'm about done.  Thank you for reading.  SMOOCHES!

The polka dots were an accident. I was messing around with my template and didn't realize I had actually saved them. They were cute and all and you're right, I AM about polka dots.....but they didn't work for what I wanted.
