About Me

Hi, there! Welcome to C-Section Lobotomy. A friend of mine came up with that name for me after I told him I felt like the doctors had removed my brain when they took the kids out- I can’t remember a darned thing,  my sleep’s messed up and I do weird things like putting the sugar in the freezer and the eggs in the cupboard. I’m slowly recovering from all of that, but the name still seems appropriate.

I’m 29 years old (as of February 2010), married to an amazing guy (AJ) who really is my best friend. We’ve been through our share of tough times in the 7 years we’ve been married, but it seems to have made both of us stronger. We have two boys- Simon is 4 years old and Isaac (Ike) is 2. They’re fun kids- they drive me crazy some days, but even on those days there’s always something that reminds me why we had kids- a kiss or a hug, or Simon will say something sweet or funny. We’re doing our best to raise them to be nice, responsible, God-loving men one day; we don’t do a perfect job of it, but we do the best we can.

A lot of what you’ll read on this blog (have I mentioned that I hate that word? BLAAAAAAGH. I also hate the word “womb”) will be about stuff I’m doing with the kids and/or AJ- I hope that doesn’t bore you. I’ll post links to interesting stuff- check out my blogroll to see what I’m usually reading. I’ll post about anything else that seems important, too- mostly, I just want to keep writing as much as I can so I don’t get rusty. Oh- and there may be ranting about things that piss me off. You’ve been warned.

What else can I tell you? I’m a bit shy- not as bad as I used to be, but enough so that it’s hard to make close friends, much as I’d like to. I have Depression; it’s under control now, but it was a source of many of the “tough times” mentioned above. That and money have been the biggest problems we’ve faced. The Depression was worst when I was pregnant… I hope AJ never understands how bad it was. That’s the main reason we won’t be having more kids.

I’m a stay at home mom right now, but staying at home’s not always my first choice of things to do. I’ll probably go back to work once the boys are in school, but that will depend on where we’re living at that point, and THAT depends on AJ’s job.  I’d like to go back to school some day (had to leave university during second year, just before I was diagnosed with Depression), and I’d love to be a teacher one day, but that’s not in the near future.  I joke about losing my mind, but I really do worry that I won’t be up to my previous standards (11.2 out of 12 GPA!) when and if I get to go back to school.

I’d like for this blog to be anonymous, but so many friends and family know the names I post under that there’s little chance of that. Also, I like to know somebody’s reading what I write, and I have a big mouth. So there.
