This is me


Well… so I am completely new at this. With me turning 30 in a few weeks I am trying to make some changes in my life, try a few new things – like blogging. I thought it might be fun to start penning my thoughts. Get a bit of perspective on things when you see it in writing. The first challenge for me is to see if I can stick to this. I have never been good at keeping a diary and my daughter’s memory book is only filled up to 9 months lol.

So more about me then. I am a single mom to a gorgeous little 18 month old terrorist. She is the cutest little thing but in two seconds flat can turn into a right little devil when she pleases. I won’t change her for anything in the world though and love her to bits. She is unfortunately also nearing an age milestone – terrible two’s!! And the problem with her age milestone is its colliding with mine – she is adding to my greying hair problem. Yup – greying hair (gasp!). Nicely coinciding with my big birthday in exactly 25 days!! Guess its time to start colouring my hair. I’m sure my mom did not have grey hair at this age – well I was not born yet so maybe that’s why she outwitted the grey till she was 40 (and I was born lol).

I also have a day job – attorney. And no it is not at glamorous as it seems on TV. No LA Law or Ally McBeal for me. To be honest I am only an administrative clerk with huge study debt to pay off. And no I also do not cash the big pay checks most people associate with attorneys. If that was true I would not have as much debt and would actually own my own toaster!

Oh to own my own toaster lol! When I was little I used to think people in their 30s are so grown up and have everything together. All their ducks in a row. Now that I am turning 30 I am wondering where I went wrong. How did I get left behind my peers? No great career, single parent, don’t own a house, a car or even a toaster! The Friends song keeps on playing in my mind the last few weeks – So no one told you life was gonna be this way. Your job’s a joke, you’re broke, your love life’s D O A. It’s like you’re always stuck in second gear. When it hasn’t been your day, your week, your month or even your year. But enough of my melancholy lol!

This is me in a nutshell. Attorney by day – Mommy by night (and crazy in between lol)

p.s I just have to post a link here for the The Rembrandts/Friends song. Who does not just love FRIENDS?
