Tell all Tuesday

Since I am pretty new to all of this blogging thing and just really starting to get the hang of it, I must admit it is ADDICTING!! AND...I won my first thing ever from Mission Monday!! How cool is that? I won that great bag that Deb was giving away over here!!
My sister started doing this and I would read hers everyday. I started doing it but wasn't sure where she was finding all these neat people who were commenting on her blogs. So I started getting a little nosier,which is something I do quite well if I don't say so myself. And now I am looking into Bloggers Anonymous!!

Anyway I thought I would share a little about myself for all of my new blog friends.

I am a single mother of 2 beautiful, wonderful daughters. Which has been quite challenging to say the least! Single moms.....my hats off to you! My oldest, who I will refer to as TA, for Teenage Attitude, will be 14 in February. My youngest who we will call DQ for Drama Queen, will be 9 on Monday. They are the most important people in my life, if it wasn't for them I don't know where I would be today. I used to be ashamed to admit it, yes, I have been married 2 times. Each time I married for the wrong reasons, I made a mistake, or 2, (haha) but who hasn't? I have learned from it and I have moved on. If it wasn't for those "wonderful" marriages, I wouldn't have my girls! My boyfriend and I have been together for about a year. I knew him about 18 years ago. He left the day after he graduated to go to the Marines. I heard from him one time, about 13 years ago, then reconnected with him thru Myspace about a year ago. We already knew each other so we just had to catch up! He lived in the town where I now work and eventually moved in with me. He has a son who is 7. John (thats my bf's name by the way) works construction for a local construction company. He treats me great, treats my kids great and is my best friend. I am content and very happy for the first time in a long time!
I work as a Staffing specialist for a staffing company. I love my job, but hate the drive, it is about 40 minutes away. I know that isn't far for some people, but for me it is. So yesterday I had an interview at a place that is in the same town that I live in, keeping my fingers crossed. I feel that the interview went well. (It better have, since interviewing people is what I do for a living, I had better be able to interview myself!!) Anyway, I will keep you posted in that.
I have lived in the same town all my life. I am the oldest of 4, I have 2 sisters and a brother. The brother is 15 years younger than I am....I believe he was a "surprise" baby!! About 3 years ago my sister, the next to oldest, moved to California with her husband and kids. That was the first "big" move for anyone in our family. We are a close family so that was an adjustment, but what an adventure for them!! If I could do it I certainly would. That sister is the one that got me turned on to Blogging. Can anyone guess who it is? I don't have anything to give away as a prize, but it can still be fun! I will give you a hint, she is a "mommy"...lol. My other sister lives here still with her new husband and her dogs! She just had a beautiful wedding in February!!
That is about all I can think right now about "me". I am at work and should probably get to working :), but this is so much more fun! If anyone has any questions or wants to know anything about me, just ask. I like to talk, share stories and get to know other people.
Thanks for taking the time to read about me and my family!! I love reading each and everyone of your blogs, love the new ideas and information. My boyfirned probably doesn't care for all of you as much, since I am on the computer reading alot at night...but he will be ok!! (Love you John) - that should make things better!
Have a great day everyone!!

I was the first "big move" in our family, though not as far as California. My brother followed a few years ago but he still lives close enough that he's expected home for all holidays and a lot of weekends. Blogs are definitely a great way to keep in touch!

I didn't realize that was you who won! How exciting!

And it's great to get to know you.

Also, I love Breath of Heaven by Amy Grant. It gives me goosebumps.

I'm pretty new to blogging too (about a 2 months) and I admit it's completely addicting. I love reading them so much and that's where it all began. It's fun to find new bloggy friends, isn't it?

And congrats on the Mission Monday win! I've played a couple of times and you beat me out this week! That's ok, there's always next week. ;)

I think your doing great and dont worry about mistakes in your past....they are what leads you to the good stuff in life.

Aubrey said...

Wow! Thanks for sharing this little bit about you. I tip my hat to you and all single moms out there doing their thing. I have a cousin who was a single mom of 3 (until she got married) and she always amazed me!
I too have a YOUNGER brother. He is 13 years my junior and an "oops" baby! LOL

Aubrey said...

Oh! And good luck with the job. I hope you get it!!

That was such a great post!!!

Oh blogging is SO addicting....thank God my hubby understands my addiction....he is addicted to Facebook and Wii.

Welcome to the blogging world. Just a warning, it gets addictive. I was a single Mom at one point, and it can be difficult, but it can also be really rewarding. My kids are grown now, and I don't know how I ever could have gotten through things if it wasn't for them. They have been such a blessing to me.
