I feel kind of weird, I don't know how to "start" a blog. I really didn't think I'd ever want one, but after reading so many of my favorite blogs, I thought it would be fun to start one. And even if no one ever reads this (I'm not even sure if I'll have many interesting things to say), I thought it would still be nice to have a "diary" of sorts so I can look back on my life. Maybe my kids will even be interested in reading it someday (I can only hope).
My name is Melissa. I just celebrated my 10th wedding anniversary and I have four children (a girl - she just turned 9, and three boys 6, 4, & 2). I lead a rather boring life, but I like it that way ~ dull and boring is fine with me.
I have traditional family values (families sitting down together for dinner each night, treating other people as you'd like to be treated, working for what you want ~ you know stuff like that) and feel like I do things a lot like my mom & grandma did when they were raising a family.
So what does "Susie Homemaker" do for fun? Glad you asked! My favorite past time is sewing. I love to sew and I sew a lot for my children and myself (and even sometimes for DH and projects to spruce up the house too). I also enjoy baking (please read baking and NOT cooking - tho I do cook so I can feed my precious family). In my former life (that would be life before having four children), I enjoyed scrapbooking. And while I still scrapbook occasionally, I am more of a slap-it-in-the-album kind of gal and don't do fun and exciting pages. Plus, I feel that wild pages can detract from the focal point - the pictures. So once or twice a year, I get on a scrapbooking kick and work on our family album. My children do, however, all have a baby scrapbook that showcases their first year month by month so I'm not a completely horrible mother. Hmm, other than that, I just do the normal homemaker sorts of things - take care of the kids, laundry, dishes, house cleaning, meals, grocery shop, etc.
So that is a little about me, stay tuned for the exciting life and times of Susie Homemaker!
