Me: I am Amy. A stay at home mom to two kids, Kamryn and Rory. They are pretty much the coolest kids ever. I love not working, but have noticed that my brain seems to work a little slower than it used to. I’m constantly looking for some stimulation – flashing lights or pretty colors possibly even a craft or two.
Ryan: The husband and father. He usually sits silently by and lets me do my thing. He knew what he was getting into when he proposed.
Kamryn: The first born, the little girl that won my heart the minute I saw her. She’s an absolute sweet-heart and was called a dream child by her teacher. However, she is a strong willed little girl who, like me, is rather opinionated and not afraid to venture out on her own.
Rory: The second child and a big ball of little boy. He is absolutely crazy and I love every tiny inch of him. He is the polar opposite of his big sister and couldn’t be more perfect.
I try to incorporate humor in my everyday life because you can find humor in everything…yes, everything, it’s all in the timing. I have been known to get myself into some interesting situations and I can almost always come out laughing in the end. If you can’t laugh at yourself, you have no business laughing at anyone else.
I’m not good at censoring myself so I tend to write like I speak. If you are curious what that is like, just know that my daughter referred to our cat, Shmoopy (RIP 1996-2009) as “That Fucking Cat” for pretty much her entire 2nd year of life.
I tend to think I am right a lot. And truth be told, I am right a lot. The saying “I’d agree with you, but then we’d both be wrong.” isn’t just a funny quip, but is kind of my mantra. It’s easy to be right when you only spout off about things you know about. Therefore, I tend to stay away from topics involving politics, religion and global warming.
In regards to the title of my blog, it’s not anything profound. I stole the idea from Ellen Degeneres. She named her record label eleveneleven because it was always 11:11 when she looked at the clock. When I look at the clock, it’s always 10:02.
Thanks for stopping by!
