I really should do a better job of updating this about page… especially when my life changes. For grins, I’ve left what was there down below; what I wrote over three years ago when I started this blog… But I’m not 30 anymore. And I’m not looking for my soulmate anymore. (Just so you know, it’s because I think I found him and not because I gave up.)
So here goes…
I’m Heather… a thirty-something biological mother of two, step mother of two — they range from 7 to 15. Yes, I am officially the mother of a teenager. (I know, it’s hard for me to see it, too!)
I met “the boy” (now the hubs) in October 2008 and wow! He sure did flip my world upside down. While once a work-a-holic and tied to my computer 24/7, now I work part time and then spend time with my family and spend very little time on the internet outside of working hours. Most days, I actually go to bed before midnight now. We got married May 16, 2010. (Are you reading this honey? It took me less than 3 months to add you to my about section! But I did it!)
By day, I’m the office manager at a local church. I’m still pretty geeky like that and I love what I do. By not, when I’m not playing mom/positive role model to those under 18 that I am around, you’ll find me hanging with a bunch of teens at church… or in the nursery … because God told me that I was supposed to work with teens… and after a big round and round on that one, I gave in. I’m glad I did. I love them and they have made such a difference in my life. Ok, so where else can I put fries in my nose and ears and get away with it?
As far as hobbies go? I love to read. I’m addicted to my iPhone and iPad… and my MacBook Pro (and I just told Thing 3 the other day that he shouldn’t brag!). I love to play games before I go to bed if I don’t have a book that I can get into. I don’t watch much TV but we do play alot on the Wii. I love that I can sweat while I play video games.
And I write. And speak. Because God has big plans for me to do both… someday… somewhere… so right now, while I wait my turn for Him to use me in the way that He’s got planned, I blog. Here. Working thru faith, salvation and life through humor. The only way I know how.
What else to tell you? I don’t know.
Just know that I’m in love with God. Because, really? What else matters above that?

So you want to know about me?
Just realize…you asked…
I am a 30 year-old, single mom of two wonderful children. (I like them today so it’s a good day to talk about them.) I’ve been a single mom, off and on now for about 6 years — more about my sordid relationships later — but the reality of it is, I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m supposed to be single — for right now.
This could all change tomorrow, by the way.
Actually, I’ve spent the last few months of my life redefining who I am, what I stand for, and the type of person that I want to be and in essence, desperately seeking sanity. I’ve enlisted the help of friends, family, and professionals.
Then someone suggested I might try God. So I included him in the mix too. That, ladies and gentlemen, has been truly an AWESOME experience and I hope to share a bit more about that as well as we go along.
So I welcome you to come along on my journey — it ought to be fun.
Until next time…
PS. If you happen to run into my soulmate, could you just let him know where I am? Thanks much in advance!
