Ok, so I have been tagged with this award. I have to tell 10 honest things about myself and then tag 7 other bloggers. But you all have been tagged already so I will skip that part. Wow, this is not going to be easy for me as I am a very private person.
1. I had my oldest when I had just turned 18. His biological sperm donor didn't want him. My mom wanted me to abort and threw me out because I wouldn't. So, it was just him and I growing up together.
2. I am actually grateful for the events of #2 because I was headed down a very dangerous road before conceiving him.
3.I have always just wanted to be a wife and mother. I enjoy cooking, cleaning and being with the kids all day. I should have been born a long time ago!
4.I was married to a great guy. Just not the right man for me. I tried to make it work. I begged him to go to the marriage encounter weekend things at our parish. I read every book I could about marriage, relationships, etc. Nothing worked. He failed to see any problems in our marriage.
5. I am the one that left the marriage. I hurt him greatly. More so then I knew at the time and just recently found out. I still feel the guilt and remorse to this day, 10 years later.
6.I then was smart enough to get involved with someone who I thought was my soulmate. I endured 7 years of emotional, verbal, physical and sexual abuse with said soulmate. I believe it was kharma getting me back for #5.
7.My children are my world and even though being a single parent is challenging, I love it. That said, there are days when I honestly feeling like running away!
8.I can come to your home and clean it perfectly. I can also organize everything in it. I used to be a house manager for a very prominent family in Society Hill in Philadelphia. However, my house is a mess and so unorganized. Oh well!
9.The majority of my friends are male. I have a hard time relating to other women, at least IRL.
10. I think I am ready to start dating. I'm not sure. The idea scares the crap out of me and with good reason. I am not sure if I am ready to trust someone with my heart again.
Ok, there are my 10 honest things about me. I know I am going to regret this later on...LOL
