It's Take One because i'm sure I'll ramble in more than just this post. *wink*
I tend to spend time online to escape from my reality... just for a few moments to realize that there are other Moms out there dealing with the same issues we deal with here in our home. The only problem is getting caught up in the drama that comes with message boards. Yes. drama. And it seems so crazy to get so involved in other people's lives... people I will never meet in my entire life. Yet it happens & connections are made, friendships are formed & enemies are made. It's interesting. But I needed a new place that I could feel welcome, but have no expectations of who I am placed on me. I found this board: http://www.justmommies.com/boards/index.php?showforum=116 It's an AP board, but doesn't have a Christian emphasis tho many of the mamas there are Christians. It's nice to be the 'newbie" and have no assumptions made yet about who I am or who my family is. That'll come w/ time tho.... That doesn't mean that I'm ditching my 'online home'... I'm just saying it's nice to have found another neat place to chat w/ women like me.
That being said, I think I need to try to find a way to fellowship w/ other women in real life. That's more difficult. Having 5 children definitely makes it harder to get involved and stay involved in things. I need to think up a way tho.
LOL... I'm sitting here at the computer, bouncing Alyssa on my knee and blogging when I look down and notice I need to dust the desk. How do I know this? Because James (6 y/o) wrote his initials in the dust at the base of the computer! LOL! How embarrassing to admit that I haven't dusted in a while *blush*
