Hi, my name is Mo. I am a blogger, a mother, a wife. I started this blog in January of 2013 on a bet with myself that I would start one. I won. And that was the very first and last New Year’s Resolution that I ever started and kept. Besides being a bet with myself, I started this blog because I always thought I would like to write and I also thought that writing would help keep my sanity. It turns out, it does just the opposite.
Below you will find the cast of characters:
Mo – Mo (that’s me) is a part-time SAHM, part-time worker outside of the home. She’s not really sure what her official title for her job outside of the home is, but she loves it. To make it seem really glamorous, let’s say she is Personal Assistant to a friend who is her friend boss now. It works.
DH – This stands for Dear Husband. I use “DH” in my posts in the interest of time. And because I am lazy. Or you can always say I’m saving the environment. Well, if using less letters actually helped save the environment. If that were the case, then you would be able to call me Letter Saving Environmental Extraordinaire – or LSEE – you know, to save more letters.
The Kid – Whenever you hear (or “see” since we are on the interwebs and you can’t really hear me say this) me talking about “The Kid,” I am speaking of my sweet, sometimes hormone enraged, wonderful and really attractive cuz she looks like me, teenage daughter.
The Job – This is my awesome, outside of the home, part-time job that I love. This part-time job is like my second home. Seriously. Except it is filled with 6 children and some days I feel like I’ve lost my mind. Then I come home to my small household and I gain some composure until next time.
Three other things I think you should know about me: 1) I am major league challenged in the department of anything that requires manual labor; 2) I am far-sighted which means I am never without my readers. In fact, my readers are constantly photo bombing my pics. It’s a problem; 3) I am totally and utterly freaked out about this aging thing and I will complain about it until the cows come home. Or maybe I should change that to say “when pigs fly” because cows come home. But pigs? They don’t fly; 4) I love wine. Oh oops. That was 4 things. Here’s a 5th: I didn’t do well in math.
While you are here, you will find random rantings, life experiences and relatable subject matter. I am extremely self-deprecating. Mainly because I want to laugh at myself before you do. My blog may be about a whole lot of nothing at times, but hopefully I’ll get some laughs out of you. Enjoy!
Disclaimer: I am not a professional writer, nor do I claim to be. I pretty much don’t know what I’m doing, but whatever it is, I’m having fun. In fact, this is my first attempt at anything writing related. Oh, I once started to read a book on how to write. Does that count? I have plenty of material swirling around in my head so I thought it would be fun to share. In a nutshell, I am a bit uneducated in the field. I’m okay with it if you are.
All About Mo (I just typed this part – to the left – in because of SEO content or some crap like that. It has something to do with Google finding me. Blah. Whatever. Just ignore it.)
