Simply Ordinary

I think that the quote at the top of my page is now officially, my favorite of all time! It going to be like, my motto! =)
So, I've been thinking about my blog a lot lately. Mostly in the sense that, I sometimes wonder how I come off to people who don't know me. And even those who do, I hope the things I write are never taken the wrong way. All is written in good humor. When I read other blogs they all talk about highlights in their lives or they try to be inspirational. Now, I am fully aware that my blog is NOT the inspirational type. It is really just, my life in real time and is meant to be taken humorously. Hey, I'm all about making people laugh!
But, due to some thinking I've been doing based on a couple emails I've received I just have to say, I am simply ordinary. And, I've decided that I am okay with that! I still cry (well, come on, I am pregnant!) I get upset with my kids and my husband (they are lucky to be alive and they don't even know it!) I get grumpy on the road when I deal with dumb drivers. I get sick of cleaning, so I don't. I get lazy, and don't do anything simply because I don't feel it. Dinner is often not made, the house is, more often then not, a disaster. I look in the mirror at times and think, ick! See, ordinary. And while being a mother is indeed an extraordinary thing, I am still, a very ordinary person. And you know what, its a darn good thing.
Okay, didn't mean to get all fuzzy there, just some random thoughts I've been having!

Um, I don't think my blog is anywhere near inspirational. more like the ramblings of an incoherent female. And you are certainly not ordinary. You are real. And a child of God. And I think you're awesome.

I've been thinking about my blog too and how I might come off to others. I was thinking about being more real with how I blog. I think sometimes we get so caught up in making people believe everything is okay. But in fact, we all have thoughts that we might not like to admit but come on we aren't perfect 100% of the time. I love reading your blog and seeing the humor in all parts of life. You are real to yourself and I admire that!

you're real on your blog. It's great.

Kent said...

Ordinary beats weird or odd any day. Besides, we think you're awesome! And if you ask me, me and Britt's opinions are the most important.

I really enjoy your real life moments on your blog. I've been trying to do more of that on my blog because I'm realizing that we are more like everyone else than we realize, but at the same time special and unique. You're doing great.
