Who I Am…

heather @ desperately seeking sanity 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!
