Have Kids, Will…Write!

This is the launch of a new blog for me; it will focus on all the things I’m struggling to do outside of my duties as MOM.  Most of these can and should coincide with motherhood, as many women function as wives, mothers, and employees (or members of the self-employed).  I’m currently maintaining a blog and doing some marketing for my husband’s general contracting business, of which I am technically a partner.  However, I have other interests and activities unrelated to home building for which I scrape together snippets of time.  I hope you’ll join me on my journey to explore some of  life’s offerings,  while I also work to shape my four sons into kind, compassionate, self-sufficient men.

A little background information: my husband and I have known each other since high school, but didn’t start dating until we were in college.  We have four sons, whose ages currently range from 6 to 16.  I think we are good parents, but our boys might think otherwise.  We are strict about working hard in school, doing chores, and being kind.  We are not-so-strict about using curse words, listening to loud music, or getting dirty.  Welcome to our chaos!
