It’s been a long while since I blogged. My mind swirls with topics and ideas constantly but I’ve lacked the time to sit down and type it all out. Let’s just say it…I’m busy. I don’t do sitting still well. I don’t do slow. I don’t do easy. I don’t do one thing at a time.

I have four kids who are now, 8, 6, 4, and 3. And in addition to mothering my girls, I work three jobs, I’m a Realtor with Keller Williams, a sales associate at Ethical Clothing, in downtown Petaluma, and I’ve just recently opened my own small lingerie and sleepwear store in the annex of Ethical Clothing, called Ronnie Bleu.

Some days I long for a place quiet where I can sleep in, wake up well rested, and begin my day in silence and peace. Most days I wake up with my little one asking me to change her diaper. She’s been potty training at her own pace and the overnight diapers are the last to go. Or I wake up with my kids playing loudly (I think on purpose to get me out of bed). Either way, my wake up time is hours before the normal world. I’m lucky if I can make it to 8am.

Even though most days I wake up before the sun, I wake up grateful. I live in a beautiful home; have a husband who loves me, and four daughters I adore. I love my busy crazy life and I wouldn’t change how many kids I have or how many things I’m involved in. This is my version of life and I enjoy it so much.

I’m starting my blog back up folks. It’s been sleeping long enough. My need for self- expression in the form of writing has been dormant for too long. It’s time to let you in on the shenanigans, resume the tales of four glorious girls, the triumphs and pitfalls of marriage, the ongoing quest for female companionship, and the incessant struggle to be understood in a world that is anything but simple.
