First of all, I write in my blog for me, feel free to read, I’ll feel honored if you do, but know that I do come with a few warnings. Nothing, bad, but I am me, I write for me, and I’m too old to change now.
My name is Judy… not Judith, just Judy. Plain and simple.
I’ve had many many struggles during my life. It’s been a long hard road to get to where I am, but I wouldn’t change a thing. I have emerged from each stronger than I ever thought imaginable. Every single painful thing, all of the hurt that I’ve had to endure has shaped the person that I am. I am a strong woman with a multi-faceted personality. That’s the gemini in me. I can be very shy and have my insecurities, but who doesn’t.
I am a stay at home mom to 3 wonderful kids, a beautiful daughter, A, also known as Gypsy Girly or Lulu (born in September 2000) and a handsome little son W, also known as Speed Racer as he’s a huge race fan, or Munkas (born in August 2004). I also have another son. Throughout my pregnancy he was nameless and here I called him Bambino, so he’s Bambino, or Bam for short (born in October 2010). He’s also knows as Ziggy, both on and off the web. I also have three babies who are no longer with me, but are forever in my heart. I am an extended breastfeeding, baby wearing, cosleeping, attached parenting Momma, and proud of it! I am married to the love of my life, my soul mate and my best friend, T, hubby, hubbster.
I grew up in New England, but hopped on a bus and headed south when I was 20. I ended up in the Sunshine State.
I write about my sometimes boring everyday life. My stories usually include my children and the joy and humor that they bring into my life. I write this blog for me and no one else. If you don’t like what I have to say, then don’t read… plain and simple. I can be very opinionated. My entries can be very private and provide you with Too Much Information. I write for me, and I will not censor myself for anyone’s comfort. If you like me… read away; if not… meh, whatever. I enjoy readers, but not critics of my life and thoughts.
Other little interesting factoids-
I suffer from seizures. They started when I was 15, inexplicably. They are well under control with medication, thankfully. Sadly though I was plagued with seizures during my pregnancy with both sons, and that scares me from getting pregnant again.
I am married to a truck driver. It can be very hard at times, but generally speaking hubby is local.
I cannot stand liars, fakes, abusers and the like.
I have many quirks including the fact that I cannot stand wet feet. I cannot get into a bed unless it is already made. I live on the Gulf Coast of Florida, but hate sand and salt water.
I lost my Mom to cancer when I was only 11 years old. It was so hard to watch her battle the disease for years. It gave me, at an early age, a knowledge of how fragile life is and a great appreciation of life. It makes me grateful for the bond that I share with my own children now.
