About Me

 

I’m an instructional technologist for K-12 education and have been in education for almost 11 years. I’ve always had an interest in teaching others, or more so, helping others explore the world! First and foremost, I’m a wife and mother of two lovely girls. We have a little jack russell terrier who is my only “little boy”! My family can be found outside at the beach during the warm months and living off our musical instruments and computers during the cold months. I prefer the warm months!

What is this blog?  It’s my bucket list.  My 100 by 100 list…my things to do before I go chronicle.  It’s my journal.  My constant attempt to appreciate my purpose, my life’s meaning, etc.  The initial intent when I started this blog was to write about technology and motherhood.  However, as my interest as a blogger has evolved, I’ve noticed this as an opportunity to chronicle my personality for my kids.  As a mother, my kids often see me as the parent primarily interested in doing laundry, cooking, managing everyone’s schedules…bleh!  I want to keep a journal for my kids that their mom has a life as well.  Although it can seem limited at times, I think I am not totally void of personality.  I’ve spoken to too many moms out there who wonder why everyone is convinced that once you become a mom, you don’t have any other interests other than taking care of the family.  I’m hoping to document for my kids that their mommy experienced some adventures of her own. Some small, hopefully some big in the future.  This balancing act is insane-trying to maintain the wife/mother role at the same time of still enjoying life as an individual.   And most importantly, maybe they’ll strive to embrace life in the same way as they become adults.

So if you have any suggestions for something I should add to my To-Do List…Holla’!

  1. Hello!
    I stumbled across your blog while reading another blog. Let me back up, I am new to blogging. Really new. I started mine on Monday so I have been intrigued by reading other people’s blogs- especially mom bloggers. Just reading your About Me page excited me because I feel the same way! I love that you make your bucket list your purpose. I started mine because way back when, I used to journal religiously. Parenthood definitely consumed me and lately I have felt like while I am 100% present in my children’s lives, I have been too busy to document anything. My greatest hope is to make my blog, my journal so like you, someday my kids will read it and appreciate the fact that I am just trying to do the best job I can.
    Thank you for inspiring me. I look forward to getting to know you through your blog and I hope you will get to know me via my new blog and/or Twitter.
    So nice to meet you~

    • Hi Tessa,
      Thanks for the thoughtful comment! I think I started this blog in 2008, but it wasn’t until the past several months that I’ve figured out my voice for it. So I definitely feel relatively new myself! I finally came to the conclusion that I wanted to leave something behind for my kids to get a sense of me. I think it is easy for us moms to lose ourselves. I don’t think it was until recently that I’ve had the motivation to remember “me” and how important it is to model that for my kids. Your comment has inspired ME that I’m on the right track in sharing something with them and with everyone else. Tweet me your blog address. I’ll definitely keep up with it. We can navigate through this all together!
      Thanks!
      Lani (ddigerati)
