As my user name implies, I am a very busy mom of 3 children. I have a son that I will refer to as "TroubleMonkey" who is 16 years old. He isn't a bad kid, he just is trying to branch out into his own independence before I am ready for him to be an adult. I also have a daughter that I will refer to as "PrincessMonkey" who is 13 years old. She is my don't wanna break a nail kind of girl. I have another son that I will refer to as "WarriorMonkey" because he is 9 years old and loves to play Army and anything that has to do with warring, even if it is protecting Earth from invading evil alien. *giggles*
Not only am I a stay at home mom, but I am a work at home mom as well. To top that off, I am attending school for a degree in Biblical Counseling. So needless to say, I stay busy. My work is something that I love. I love to write therefore I am a freelance writer. However, my journal is where I can relax with proper grammar, spelling, etc. I realized that although I love my kids and love my work, I lack enough social interaction. Thus another reason why I am here. Looking to escape the humdrumness of daily life to have some adult conversations with some friends. Although, I do have friends in my life, they all have busy lives themselves. So since I work online, I might as well relax and play online. lol.
Journaling is also an outlet of therapy for me. I can let out joys. I can let out frustration. I can let out tears if need be. Cheapest therapy I know. I can also interact with some wonderful people on line. Best of all, I make new friends.
