First Entry

Hello! I’m kittyhox.

How on earth did you manage to stumble upon my little corner of the world? I have no idea what you’ll find as I begin this blog, or whether you’ll find any value in what I have to say (whatever that may be). I plan to write about the things I’m thinking about, which usually relate to my family, my hobbies, my interests, and my goals.

I guess I shall begin by telling you about myself. Who knows - maybe we have something in common!

I am 30 years old. I am an only child. My parents are divorced. I was born and raised in Alaska; in fact I’m a third generation Alaskan. We moved to Oregon when I was 13, where I attended high school and one year of college. Then I decided to “take a year off” from school. That turned into about ten. During that decade I moved all over the place: New York, Northern California, Maryland, Connecticut, and finally, Washington State, where I now reside.

I’ve been married to a “husband-of-the-year” type (Penn) for almost five years. My suspicions that a dream husband makes a dream father were confirmed when our little bundle of joy (Nicknack) arrived last May. He is the love of our lives.

Prior to becoming a SAHM I worked for a bank. I am currently in school full-time, trying to finally finish up that degree I started so long ago!

I feel pretty isolated a lot of the time because, with the exception of my darling husband and dear mother, I don't really have any close friends. I rarely feel like a good enough wife or Mama. I lack the discipline to do the things that are most important to me, like focusing more of my time and energy toward my walk with Christ or losing the baby weight. The latter of which, to be honest, has been a problem long before the baby, but is less embarrassing with the word “baby” attached.

You’ll probably realize right away that I need a lot of work in a lot of areas and that self-improvement is one of the themes of my life.

So that’s me in a nutshell.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and taking the time to read.

Take care!
