I listened to Mrs. Robinson's vlog today about how she finds a balance between what to blog about and what not to blog about. I realized, after watching it, that I don't talk too much about the problems or issues in our life.
Why is that?
I have no idea. It may be that I'm not sure how to write it out. Maybe I'm too nervous to share personal hardships and problems.
I don't think I try to sugarcoat everything in our lives, but I know I don't share it all with you (although, not everything needs to be shared).
Well, it's about to get a little more real on this blog. Don't get too excited now.
I'm not perfect. My husband's not perfect (though some days he comes close). WE are not perfect.
We're real people. We have real issues and problems.
-- We only have one car. We share it. It is starting to become a problem. It died the other weekend on the other side of the state and took quite a long time to fix (but a HUGE thanks to our mechanic friend Matt.)
-- We want, no, NEED to start car hunting before winter gets here (my husband currently bikes 12 miles to and from work, he enjoys it, but he won't want to do it all the time during winter), but we don't necessarily have all the funds for a new car, no thanks to the car sucking all of our money. We also aren't too keen on paying car payments (unless we can find a good used car for less than $5000, but we're still a little iffy right not on that subject).
-- I have my education degree, but I'm a nanny right now (please note that I do love my job. Being a nanny for an awesome family is so much fun). I applied and interviewed for teaching jobs last year, but didn't get any. I'm also a little picky about where I get a job because we want to be close to where we currently are. So, I am a nanny for the next year and then I'll jump back on education job market.
-- I'm sick of duplex/apartment living. But, like mentioned before, we don't have the funds to justify house hunting, nor do we want a big fat mortgage.
Okay, that wasn't too bad, but I just wanted to make sure you knew that we are human and have our little issues.
I want to be more honest on this blog. This is my promise to you - I will share more of our "real life" drama!
I hope you don't think that I was wanting sympathy or anything. I just wanted to be more true to myself and to you, my reader.
