California Momma's Pages

Saturday, June 19, 2010



 Hello to my faithful readers and “Thank you” for your loyalty and patience with my computer issues, my insane family dramas, and my just plain venting. It’s taken me A LOT longer then I first anticipated to get my blog up and running to the standard I hold for myself and my blog. Especially because I see my blog as an extension of myself, from every letter in each post, to the design and custom gadgets that I placed to complete the look and feel I wanted to show. I leave a part of my heart and soul on each post I write and I’m sure I am not the only one who feels that.  .
To any new visitors that happen to show up today, because it is MY SUPAHSTAH SATURDAY!!! Thank you Tree, From Mother of Pearl it is. Out of the blue I get an email from her asking me if I was interested in being the SupahStah for Saturday. Well needless to say, I was Ecstatic!!! 

 I hope you see a little, or A lot of things that you like and become a faithful reader! I want to say that I believe in following through with things, no matter what it is. I have full intentions to revisit each and every one of my new visitors and return the love and follow all back. There is nothing like being hooked up with some great communities and circle of bloggers. I’ve been fortunate (and grateful) to have found some really good ones (**Pointing to my sidebar**) if you look over there you will see the buttons of every momma blog community I belong to.
I have had a lot of time(thanks to My computer who seems to have far more attitude then I ever had) Being without the outlet I use to maintain my own (and my boyfriend's) sanity, I found myself with way more stress and short fused. I was way more irritable and let’s face it, just plain grouchy. That’s when I realized that I had finally discovered an outlet that truly satisfied my every need. From writing and designing, to actually communicating with grown adults, women, who were real and honest with their lives, I didn’t have to worry about being cyber-stalked or hit on by my web based friends. I’ve had some unfortunate experiences on other social media sites.
My son is my main reason for even looking up “mom blog” advice. I wanted so bad to find just one other mom who felt like a complete dork when it came to the homework their 13 year old was bringing home. I know that sounds really bad, but I see nothing wrong with being a dork. I am the first one to say that I am a Dork.   I love that I feel secure in being a dork, that I can embrace the dorky things in my personality that seem to come out at the least opportune times. But accepting my own dorky ways has actually given me loads of self esteem and confidence. Is it strange that I can flip the negative characteristic into a positive one? I used to think so, and that confirmed my own dorky ways to myself. (see what I mean about being a dork? who else would think like that??) But I see it this way, if I can show people that I’m not going to be embarrassed about the way I sometimes forget to filter my thoughts before they come out my mouth, or when I forget that there is a whole lot of random people around when my favorite song comes at the super market and I start singing and dancing like I’m at home. Yes, I have really done that, more than once!! Or when I laugh so hard at the tiniest thing because it reminded me of something else that was totally different and no one else around me is even close to laughing.
Any ways, you can see that I am full of crazy real life stories and have experienced those things that usually only happen to people in sitcoms or bad TV Movies. One thing is for sure, it’s never boring around me or my house. There is always a way to turn nothing into something and make it into everything!
