I wish I was the type of woman who stayed at home with the kids, cooked, baked, did the laundry, and decorated the house.Â I truly do. But that’s not me. I am so NOT a domestic goddess.Â My husband cooks 99% of the time, and he likes it.Â I love to bake, but I haven’t baked a thing in months.Â Laundry gets done when I can get to it, and home decor? I refuse to do it until these boys get out. So this won’t be that kind of blog.
What kind of blog will it be?Â It’ll be the blog of a wife, mother, Christ-follower, student, daughter, sister, and aunt writing about her hectic life.
On March 30, 2010, I became Mrs. Day.Â I married my first love, the very first boyfriend I ever had. I’m so thankful that God allowed us to reconnect over 20 years later! If you’d like to know more about our story,click here to Â head on over to Part One!
I went from being a single mom of a 9 year old son, to wife and stepmom of 5. Three Two of them live with us. They’re all boys. Â Yes. That’s right. I’m the only female in this house. Â It has it’s advantages, but sometimes I just have to leave and spend time with women! Â I do love being queen of the castle, though!
I have a variety of interests. Knitting, crocheting, photography, blogging, reading, writing, singing, making jewelry, web design, bowling, football….and the list just keeps on growing.Â Do I have the time for these things? Not much at all. There are so many things I want to learn how to do.Â But I’m the queen of starting and then…blah.Â Pray that I can stick to something!
I love Jesus Christ completely.Â Following Him is not easy, but I wouldn’t trade this life for the one I had before He made me His.Â I’m committed to living my life in a way that represents Him well. That means I read what the Bible says and work to conform myself to it, and not try to make it justify the way I want to live.
I’m outspokenÂ and direct. I don’t play games. I don’t sugarcoat anything. That’s not to say that I can’t say things nicely. I can.Â But to me, nice doesn’t mean lie.Â I despise dishonesty.Â The words “politically correct” are like poison to me.Â I love to laugh, and my sense of humor ranges from dry to slapstick.Â I just find a lot of things to be funny. I laugh often. and LOUD.
