Ultimate Blog Party 2011
We were asked to talk a little bit about ourselves during this event. Here is what I said:
I am the owner of 3 blogs--my personal blog, this one, and my giveaway listings blog! Thus the name, A GAL NEEDS... at least 2 blogs! I never would have guessed 3 years ago that I would even be a blogger at all. So it is quite the surprise to me that I have 3 of them.
I'm a Mom of a 22 year old son, who is in the thick of graduating from college and heading for grad school, pretty much on his own. It's nice, though, that he lives in the same town as us and I can see him quite frequently! He is an MMA competitor on the side and has been doing well in that arena. I saw him fight one time and I think that will be the only time I go. It's quite nerve-racking!
I also have a 14 year old son, still at home and finishing up his middle school career. He is really big for a 14 year old. He's at 6'0 right now, with huge bones and a huge frame. I don't even know how to feed him sometimes. Fortunately my husband is a great cook so he helps in that area!
I am a certified special ed teacher and work in a support role at a remedial high school in a self-contained classroom. Luckily, I have experience with boys because it's an all-boy classroom. It's never boring and when I get home, I see my other boys. That's a lot of testosterone and so sometimes I love to get away and ride my bike on the local river trail or take my border collie on walks!
My husband is the greatest and we enjoy our lives and while he enjoys his 'War Craft' and other recreational online games, I love to blog in my spare time. My spare time seems to be less and less these days, but I still make time for reviews, giveaways and the occasional snapshot of life. I enjoy featuring noteworthy news or in other words, news that I feel is of interest to me and other women.
