Happy New Year

I'm going to try something new here......I'm going to try to blog something everyday. 

So, today I'm going to introduce myself.

I'm Kristen....and this year I'll be turning 40.

I am married to John...have been for almost 12 years.  We've known each other since HS.  It's not a perfect marriage.....we have our ups and downs...but we are working on it.

I have two little girls.  Grace is 5 and shares my birthday.  She was a week late and after 12 hours of non progressive labor, she was delivered via C-section on my the same hospital that I was born in.

Ava is 3 and a pistol.  She's like the last phrase in a Olivia book...."You really wear me out but I love you anyways".  That's what she does to me.  She wears me out.

I love my girls with my entire heart and soul....but they completely wear me out.  I feel stressed when I'm around them.  Their whining, fighting, constant demands...... Is that pathetic?

And on top of it all.....part of me wants another child.  Have I completely LOST MY MIND?

I was a full time working mom....and now.....well, I was laid off in November...from a good job...but a job that I've hated forever.....I worked for the same company for 10 years.

I have no idea what I want to be when I grow up.  None, none what-so-ever.

So, I feel like I'm at a cross roads.

This year I want to use this blog to try to figure a number of things out. 

Will you help?
