25 years ago I gave birth to my first son. 17 years later I gave birth to my second.
I have been parenting young people for a very long time. And with a seven year old in house I will be hands-on parent for many more years.
I am sitting at my desk squinting at the screen because I am waiting on Lenscrafters to send me my “Oh my God, I can’t see a thing glasses” and I am sipping a plastic bottle of water that is hopefully BPA free because I don’t have time to fill up my metal one.
I work on a computer all day, which is probably the worse job in the world for an older momma. I have what some calls the Secretary Spread and you can read about it here. (But just a note, the picture on that article is my goal weight.) In other words, pre-little guy weight. My spread is now in the middle and has sprinkled around in other places.
This all has taken place since I started spending more time with a computer than real humans.
The truth as I figure it is I am writing this new blog because my Simple Daily Challenge blog is really helping me to get my house in order and I thought why not have another little blog to encourage me to get off my momma behind and do something besides SEO and other nifty computer stuff.
Now, not every momma works on a computer all day, but a whole bunch of them have virtual farms that keep them glued to their chairs.
I have one, I will not lie, I tend it every morning while I drink my coffee. I am a bit ashamed of the little time waster but when your life revolves around computers and family it is so much easier to have a virtual farm as a hobby than say golf or stamp collecting. Wow, I can’t believe I shared that little secret.
So, here I sit telling you’re the truth because why tell fudge when you can eat it.
I am writing this blog to share a journey of a bit older momma taking back her life. I hope to grow as I go and maybe grow real vegetables instead of electronic ones.
I will share my health goals, family not-so-secret-secrets and bits and pieces of stuff along the way that make me happy.
In other words Momma is Spilling the Beans.
