Happy Anniversary!

Congratulate me. Today is the one year anniversary of my first post here on The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.

Can you believe it has already been one year? (Or did you just happen upon this blog today?) Either way, dear reader, I thank you for attention. It all began as a humble space for me to vent my frustrations of life as a mom, looking for hope, support, and an occassional "You were so right!" It is because of my passion for motherhood that I continue to write for this blog. (Or is it my habit of getting into sticky and uncomfortable situations? Perhaps my need to expel any "Mommy Demons" before I strangle someone?)

A lot has changed in a year. My son Volcano is now 5, entering kindergarten in the Fall, and my little girl Monkey is 3, starting her first preschool in September. (I cringe at the thought of waking up early 5 days a week, but, alas, that is for another post.) We have been here in Oregon now for 2 years, and it's finally starting to feel like home. I have made new friends -- and made new enemies -- and not regretted a minute of it.

I hope you've enjoyed the past year as much as I have, whether you've been reading my blog or not. And I hope to see you around cyberspace more often.

Much thanks and humble gratitude,
