Hey y’all! I have finally decided, after 16 months of pondering, to start a blog. You may be wondering what the heck the name is about and, well, let me tell you a little about me so you can understand.
I’m a very type-A person, OCD, anxiety, the whole shebang. I thrive on lists. Lists for everything! Well then I became a mom. If you can figure out how to get a toddler to work off the same list I’m using I’d really love to know. On top of that I do in-home childcare so then I have extra kids to work off my list…you get the idea.
Lists don’t work so often anymore.
That said, at the end of the day, my sentences don’t often make sense, I am yearning for human interaction (which I may count this blog as my interaction..it works, right?), and I have glue and glitter in places that it shouldn’t be.
Alas, yogacups and coffeepants is born. In case you need me to explain a little further, it’s a cliche that all SAHMs live in yoga pants and, well, I fit that stereotype lol. I’m often seen with a coffee, but don’t mistake me for one of those moms who carries a Starbucks cup around..no no..not that swanky. I often settle for my home-brewed cup in my Mr. Coffee 12-cup coffee maker. We have a great relationship.
So I should warn any of you readers, I am sarcastic and have a dry sense of humor, I have a stir-the-pot mentality, and I love to question people and have nice, hearty discussions. I felt like a blog would be a good thing for me because I’ve always been a writer, I miss writing so much that I think about it, dream about, and lately I’ve had some instances that almost seemed like signs that I needed to start. So here I am. I may write about some boring things to others, but interesting to me. I’ve been thinking about doing some poetry reviews (because I love poetry), I may post funny memes, frustrations from my day, anything that comes to mind. Keep in mind, I’m opinionated (what mom isn’t), so I’m sorry if you don’t agree with me but that’s okay..we can still talk about it!
I’m also aware that my style of writing is not an editor’s dream, and I’m okay with that. This blog is written as if I’m speaking it out loud.
Soooo now that I got a nice little intro out, my daughter is snuggling up to me and I think I’m going to take advantage of this.
