I have been on here for several days now and I still have not posted an entry! I guess this will serve as an "introduction" of myself.
So of course, my name is Emily. I am 24, I have a son who was born in April of '09. We live with my mother and her boyfriend/ex husband. Tricky situation they're in. I wouldn't wanna put myself thru it, that's for sure. In the spring, we're looking forward to a move. Right now my grandma's house is being renovated for a number of reasons, one of which is so that there's enough room for us all to move in. Hopefully we will be in there by son's second birthday. I'm so excited for him to have his own room finally and for me to have a room to myself again! I had spent the two years before my son's birth living with roommates so I haven't had a decent room just for me for awhile.
I am a stay at home/work at home mommy. I couldn't imagine having to go to work everyday and leave my son. I always felt alone growing up when my mom would be working all the time. I'm not knocking those of you who have to work outside the home to support your family, you do what you have to do. But I am very grateful to be so blessed to be able to have the means to give my son everything he deserves and still get to spend time with him and see everything he goes thru. It honestly drives me crazy the few times a month when I leave him, either for my mom's group, to go out, or if i get to the gym at all. I can't stand not knowing what he did for those couple hours I wasn't there. Maybe I'm crazy.
Right now, I'm an independent sales representative for Avon. I have been doing this since August. My goal is to expand my customers and hopefully create a downline. I have a lot of other things that I want to try out, too. I'm kinda a daydreamer. I would love to have a formal education for asthetics and maybe have my own salon. If that doesn't happen, I'd like to start up my own consignment shop. I really love to cook and bake. And I have recently found that I am interested in cake decorating. I hadn't really ever given it too much thought, but I'm looking into classes and hopefully practicing a little in the next couple weeks for Christmas.
I don't know what else to really say at this point besides just rambling on. I'm looking forward to meeting some great moms to connect with on here! As well as find out about becoming a product reviewer, I think that would be so fun!
Thanks so much for reading my first blog post!!!
