I am indeed a hot mess

27 Mar

I chose this name for 3 reasons…

1. If my kids could articulate themselves they would say, My mom is a hot mess.(cereal for dinner anyone?!?!)

2. An acquaintance at the gym saw me the other day and said….”you look so great and in shape, how do you do it with kids? I said I don’t, I’m a hot mess! She said you should write a blog about it.” No one has ever told me that before. I decided the next day to give it a try.

3. My kids are not well behaved all the time, my house is not perfectly clean and organized all the time, my husband knows there is not usually a well balanced meal on the table every night, and he frequently has to go into the dryer to find his work clothes.

I do give it my best shot though and that should count for something. But what keeps me sane is fitness, working out, running, having fun with friends. If I could I would do it all the time. I try to motivate others because it keeps me motivated.

It seems everyone else has it together all the time……I do not and I decided to just laugh and go with it because being stressed was not good for anyone. So this blog will be about a lot of different subjects, parenting, fitness, motivation, running, eating healthy, keeping my family healthy, owning a business, traveling, taking care of everyone else, and dealing with the the sometimes shit life gives you:)


Why would I do this….

26 Mar

First off I’m a 33 year old wife and mother of two boys ages 4 and 7. I also have one very large child that is my husband. I decided to write a blog(first time) because life sometimes sucks ass. I mean raising kids, trying to earn a living, and trying to take care of everyone is exhausting. The only way I get through is with humor. I know there are other parents out there that find this just as tough as it is rewarding. So come on this hilarious fucking journey with me;) There will be curse words just to warn you and other than that I have no idea what I’m doing!
