So here it is - my first blog. I have actually been resisting this, but ultimately decided that this is what I need. Something to keep me writing regularly and somewhere to vent. I enjoy reading blogs, and I'm amazed at the little groupy followings they attract. (Not that I believe that anyone out there in internet-land will have any interest in mine, to be sure.)
Anyway, a little bit about me. I'm Christine, mommy to Gabriella and Alexander. Wife to Andrew. We live in Wyoming. (Yes, we have paved roads. No, we don't ride horses to work. Yes, there are other people here, but not many. We like it that way.) This is where I was born. I love Wyoming. It's beautiful, and (relatively) untouched. There is fresh air here, and room - lots of room.
My daughter is 3 1/2 - a tough age. Although I get the feeling that any age is a tough age. I really love being a mother, but it's a lot harder than I thought it would be. I'm not the mother I wish I was - I'm working on that. My son is 16 months. My children are the most adorable, most brilliant children in all the world. (Every mother should say that about her kids, but in my case I think it could be true. :)
My husband Andrew is the assistant GM for a new restaurant opening in town. We've been married for 11 years. He's wonderful, too.
I'm "suffering" from post-pardom depression. I thought I had it under control and then recently my hormones surged and I'm dealing with it again. It's not fun, that's all I have to say about it right now.
So here I am internet. I really doubt anyone will stumble across this. If you have, please let me know. I'm not here to be interesting or funny or witty. I'm just here for me.
