Life has changed a lot in the past three years. When I started blogging I was a college student. Then I got married and I stopped blogging altogether. Life got messy. I didn’t want to share my thoughts anymore. Now I have three years worth of life, repressed inside which I’m hoping will make for some worthy blog posts. There’s only one way to find out.
I guess a quick recap is in order.
Since my Xanga days I…
Moved to New Jersey
Popped out a baby
Left my job to stay home with the baby.
All of the above points are devastatingly life changing. No wonder I didn’t feel like writing.
Getting married – no one ever thinks about what is going to happen after the fairy tale wedding. There is no ‘happily ever after’. Instead, it’s ‘what’s for dinner?’ and ‘who’s going to clean the bathroom?’
Moving to New Jersey. People are crazy here. You think Texans are all redneck republicans eating roadkill? Not at all. People on the east coast are insane in their own way and I’m slowly morphing into one of them.
Popping out a baby. Do I really need to explain this one? I burst into tears the first time I got shot in the face with a stream of pee. Now I think it’s hilarious.
And the last big life change, I’m a stay at home mom now.
Which explains why I live in sweatpants.
And why my best friend is a two-year-old.
The other day in order to get me out of bed he stood at the door and said
“Ammu, come on! ….Coffee?”
My best friend knows that coffee is the only thing that will get me out of bed. It’s the only thing that’s been constant.
No, he didn’t make me a cup. He’s only two. But I’m working on it.
I don’t deal very well with change. So expect a lot of bitching and a lot of what-happened-to-my-life type moments. I also crack myself up when I think about all the things that go down around here but I have no friends to tell them to. So hopefully you’ll check back to laugh with me. Or feel sorry for me.
I’ll be doing both.
