So who doesn't like a good party? If you know me at all, you know I like a fun time as much as the next gal!
Of COURSE I jumped at this chance to read TONS of great new blogs and meet some super moms who are doing what they do out there! So read on as I introduce myself and make sure to comment so I can go visit YOUR site and meet YOU!
So...here I go...an introduction for those who don't yet know me!
I live in a little West Michigan city (right on Lake Michigan) that is known for its tulips. I live in a cute little home with my wonderful husband, our 16-year old cat named Louis, and our sweet little soon-to-be 11month old, Eddie.
I work full time as a high school English teacher (for now anyway...that is a WHOLE different post) and I also teach as an adjunct instructor at a local community college. My hubs is currently unemployed after being laid off in October (although we are patiently...ok NOT patiently...waiting to hear back about some interviews).
I recently was diagnosed with Postpartum Depression on top of a pre-existing anxiety disorder. I'm learning that there is a LOT of support out there and I want to be a voice for those who are afraid. I didn't know why I was the way I was, and then I was afraid to talk about it. I don't want anyone else feeling that way.
I also LOVE to read. I mean, duh, I got into teaching English for a reason, right? So recently I started a SECOND blog (yes, I am sort of insane. You will find I take on too many projects and then obsess about making them perfect. It is my curse). The blog is really new, so be nice.
Now excuse me while I go read more of YOUR blogs...this is the BEST bedtime reading!
