Ultimate Blog Party 2009
Doing something new and different today....joining in on the Ultimate Blog Party hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom's. Several of the blogs I follow are participating so I thought I'd add my name to the list also.
A big welcome to those visiting for the first time!
I'm one of those confused bloggers that really doesn't know exactly why she blogs. Mostly what you will find here are posts about:
Family life: As the mother of a 19 year old, 13 year old and 4 year old, our life hits all the ups and downs at about the same time for each age group. Being a MOPS mom with one in college is rather strange. Add to that our youngest being adopted...and all the lessons that involves and I end up with a few things to say.
Living on a budget: After 15 years of marriage with no debt, circumstances led us to be in debt for the first time. We recently went through Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace and have begun digging ourselves out of this mess and returning to a frugal lifestyle. It feels good. I love to learn and pass on new ways to live frugal and simply.
Learning how to live a Christian life: After spending way too many years as a baby Christian in legalistic churches, we are learning to live like Christians without the chains. It's an amazing journey and I love to share.
Life as a military wife: The dark side of the equation. My children are 3rd generation born and raised military brats. Love my country. Do NOT love being a military wife. I might as well call myself a single mom. But we are at an assignment that is giving us a temporary break from the constant desert rotations. (AMEN!!!)
I also love terrible B rate horror movies and grew up in a cartoon family. You will also see occasional travel type posts on places I want to be. I love to travel and LOVE photography so I share cool stuff sometimes.
Maybe one day I'll narrow it all down to a one subject job. Then again maybe I won't.
