My very first post on a brand new blog

*Whew* Ok, so this is my very first attempt at blogging... blogging virgin here, so please be gentle. I have no idea what to say here, so bear with me as I get the hang of blogging and rambling on.


Ok, I am playing with my blog and figured out how to post a picture, so I added Mr. Beautiful here, not quite what I am trying to do, but I will need to ask some questions of another seasoned blogger I know. But anyhoo, there he is. 


Hmmm....  My life has much going on in it... I am a single parent with 2 sons, one 14 and the other 12... teenagers... gaw... soo not fun... oh well. My boys are the best Gift I have ever been given. I may dedicate a few posts or maybe a lot of them to my wonderful kids, depends on how often they amuse me. I should also add that we currently have 2 cats and a dog who is more puppy than adult, so maybe the critters will make it into here a time or two as well.


I go to college at UCCS and I am there on full scholarships (yes, more than one) as well as grants... so I guess you could say I am smart.... well, smart-assed anyway. I am a top notch student that frequently makes the Dean's List and other various honors. Ok, I am beginning to feel silly for going on about myself here.



I am an avid reader that will read just about anything I can get my hot little hands on, I live in Colorado where I freeze my butt off, but I love it here and have found my little (or not so little, depends on your perspective) niche in the world, and I am a total geek. 


I am not sure what I will do with this blog, so I will have to see what direction it takes me in. I don't think I will be posting daily, but maybe weekly or so, depends on how busy I am with life... as John Lennon says, "Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans", and man there have never been truer words spoken.


Ok, enough about me.... I think I am going to sign off and see what happens with this blog. I really have no clue what to blog about... hence the title.

  9. Jennifer, this blog is such and inspiration to me. You did a wonderful job. We are in the same boat when it comes to blogging. I am not too terribly familiar with the process, but know that I would thoroughly enjoy what it has to offer.

    I just wrapped up a bachelor degree in business communications and have been struggling with a career transition. I have been considering taking up blogging myself just to stay in the mainstream of things. This blog may be just what I needed to move forward with doing so. Again, great job and thanks for sharing!

  18. Your Mr. is indeed beautiful...drool-worthy, even...
    Have fun with this; it can get addicting...

    ReplyDelete
  19. Yes, I have noticed that this can get addicting. But I am trying to come up with stuff to ramble about and need some inspiration. Nothing interesting at moment going on around here. Maybe after my winter interim class starts tomorrow. That may provide me with some inspiration. Glad you like Mr. Beautiful... I enjoy looking and drooling. There will be drool-worthy hottie pictures showing up every so often in my posts.

  20. I saw in your New Year blog you asked what God was trying to teach you and you showed some frustration on that. It seems to me that God is trying to teach you that no matter how bad things get that you will come threw it a stronger and more faithful servant. There are a lot of people around you that care very much and wont let you fall to far without putting out a helping hand. You are still standing tall. There are a lot of us that look up to you because you refuse to fail. When you finish school and are doing what ever it is you will be doing you will be the very best because you have been tried by fire. Because of your willingness to go back to school and get an education your sister Chrissy has made up her mind to get her GED and start going to collage. She said if Jen can do it so can I. You are making a difference.

  21. *sniffle* Aw Daddy, you made me sniffle and tear up a little. Thank you for what you said.

    I didn't realize so many of y'all looked up to me simply because I am doing what I have to do to make sure the boys have a decent future with opportunities to succeed. i know everyone is there to help, and God knows that if you and Mommy didn't help as much as you did, this wouldn't be possible. So Thank you for the help and support.

    I know God is working on me to become a stronger and more faithful servant, but it isn't easy and the fire I keep going thru is awful hot! As for refusing to fail, it is more that failure at this point in my life isn't an option, and I am too damn stubborn to allow it to happen. I have too much at stake to allow failure or even thoughts of failure to sneak in on me.

    I am glad Chrissy is finally taking the steps she needs to get her education. I know she can do it and will do fine. It is nice to see that I am making a difference somewhere.

    I love you Daddy!
