Okay, so here is my official FIRST blog. Im sitting here wondering what to even blog about. Those that know me in my life would never imagine that I am at a loss for words. Lol..I teach for a living so I should be use to just talking talking talking.
Well, since its my first blog, Im going to talk about ME. Im Crystal, 31 years old and mommy of two. My son is 13 and going to Junior HIgh. Having a teenager has been harder than I thought. I literally watched him change the moment he turned 13. My daughter Sabyre is 10. She and I are very close.
I was a single mommy for a long time as I worked my way through school to become a teacher. I would never wish that on my worst enemy. It was the hardest time of my life. But, life is good at teaching us hard lessons right?
When my son was in kindergarten, he was struck head on by a truck. Our lives changed that day forever. He suffered TBI Traumatic Brain Injury and was left deaf in one ear and only has 70% in the other. He had to learn to walk again..and spent 4 months in an inpatient hospital for his brain injury. The next several years are a blur between doctors and what now..but somewhere through all of that I met the man of my dreams. He took us on..all of our drama and all! We have been married almost 5 years now.
Today, if I didnt tell you about my sons injury you would never know. He has worked so hard to overcome the obstacles in his way, He is my inspiration in life.
Now that we live a boring and normal life, we had to find something to occupy our time. We decided to start our own business several years ago. We make whimisical and fun soaps. Kids love them! We have just started our business online on Etsy. So far, its slow but good. We also have our items in two shops..so exciting.
And if that wasnt keeping us buy enough, we decided to undergo invitro this summer to have another baby. As of next Wed I will be pregnant with twins..we just pray that my body will keep them safe and not reject them. Im sure there will be tons of blogs about that adventure.
So, thats me in a nutshell. I have also blogged alittle on my myspace page. Maybe one day I will post those over here.
