So to enhance my blogstalking skills I've joined Mormon Mommy Blogs (see the little blue box on the right). For those who are unfamiliar with it, it's just a list of random people's blogs sorted into different categories to make it easier for people like me to waste time.
I was pretty excited and waited impatiently to see what category my blog would fall into..."The Lighter Side" because I really am so funny, or maybe even "Witty Women" for very obvious reasons. Well, yesterday I received my e-mail saying I had been added to the category...are ya ready?
Living the Dream
Thud. What? Are you kidding me? What kind of dream was she talking about? More times than not my dreams are freaking scray and out of control - very similar to my life. My blog may seem tame, but you ain't seen nothing until you've seen Tania turning around in circles naked screaming "Wow!" just before bathtime while Aren is begging for "just one more popsicle, please?" as I tell him to "shut up before I throw you against the wall!" and all the while Rick is trying to watch the latest episode of "Destroyed in Seconds" no doubt wondering why he wasn't asked to work late.
We don't have a house, we're in debt, we have no garden, no savings...the list can go on. After the initial shock of being snubbed, I really did start to think about things. I am married to a wonderful man who works his butt off every day to provide for his family so I can suffer staying at home. I get to teach piano lessons four days a week which I totally love. Aren is alive and well and almost ready to celebrate his third year transplant anniversary, and Tatiana is the healthiest 16 month old I've ever seen. We may not have Lily right now, but she's here and she's waiting.
So, I guess in a way I really am living the dream. Now if only my dream could take a little turn to the right so a nice house full of money to pay off the student loans could pop up.
