You know those mommies that are always prepared and always know the right thing to do? I am so not one of them. I do have 2 children- a daughter, Princess, born in 2009 and a son, Buster, born in 2012. Included here are some of the mistakes I make along with the things I do right. I don’t use words sparingly and I’m not always politically correct.
These kids are currently my full-time job, but long ago, in a galaxy far, far away, I once had a career. I was in automotive internet sales for about 10 years. This was a great way to use the 6+ years studying Forestry at Oklahoma State University and my high IQ (I’m in Mensa, which I guess means I’m smart or they need to redo their testing.) Follow along and you’ll probably get to read about how all that happened, too. I put this career on pause in January, 2012, but I’m still fascinated by the business. Fortunately for you, dear reader, I’m an expert at the whole “buying a car” thing, having been a part of at least 10,000 car sales. Now I like to write about what I see going on in the business and give tips on how to get a great deal and have a great buying experience- especially as a woman. Seriously, it can be fun.
In my spare time, in summer anyway, I like to go camping with my family in our motor home. I grew up camping and even met my husband on a camping trip. Camping is, in my opinion, the BEST way to spend a weekend with your kids.
Winter brings cold weather and my husband makes me strap slippery boards on my feet and head up to the top of a really steep hill and slide on down. I will never be an expert skier, but I do enjoy the drinks and good company I find at the bottom of the hill.
Also, in 2012 I took up running. It’s free and more interesting to talk about than 30 minutes on the elliptical. I think everyone should try it. At least get the feeling of the start line and the exhausted pride at a finish line once. So I write about that sometimes, too. As of March, 2014, I’m down about 40 lbs since my son was born. In June 2014, I ran my first half marathon. In September 2014, I will complete (hopefully) my first triathlon. So I guess I’ve got my own motor now too!
Many, many things occupy my mind in the course of a day and I develop opinions on those, too. I’ll probably write about some pretty random stuff, even stuff I have no business writing about. That’s what being motor mouth is all about. But it will be fun, right?
So here I am with my Motor Home, my Motor Cars, and using my Motor Mouth to blog online as Motor Mommy. Join me for the ride, won’t you?
