The many faces of Me!

Ever have those days when you roll out of bed, stumble to the coffee pot for your first morning fix and realize that today you just don’t feel like yourself? I think modern day medicine refers to it as A.D.D. but I simply call if Life!

I have those days quite often. Some days I feel like being an advocate for a needy cause or two, some I will wake up and feel like being a little political tyrant. There have been those days where I reflect back on my many days errr years of being a single mother and then there are those days where I realize that I have to do something, anything to make sure I don’t have to check my caller I.D. for credit collectors reminding me that I missed a payment or two or three. Then of course there are those days where I look in the mirror and realize I am the Midwestern version of the ever popular “soccer mom” only here in Indiana we call it Basketball, Football or Racing! Soccer just hasn’t made its popularity mark here in the heartland yet I suppose.

Several years ago I finally got with the times and linked up to the Internet. What a wonderful haven for the many faces of me! Through the internet I can be all those things and more if I choose to be.

For the days I feel like the advocate, I developed a passion for educating the world on the topic of STD’s. Talk about a huge undertaking! It’s a slow progression but when I joined forces with an internet buddy from Omaha (whom I have never met in person by the way) I realized that when you form a team, anything is possible!

Now on those days I feel like the political tyrant, I developed my little Supporting American’s Blog! It’s within that venue I can spout off about anything I like or don’t like as the case may be in many instances lately. BUT I am registered to vote so I have a right to complain if I damn well please!

Thank goodness I am married now because reflecting back on the days of being single doesn’t make me feel like such a picky bitch anymore! It was a growing problem back in those days. Mom was beginning to wonder if I was going to be single for the rest of my life. It is those reflections that helped develop my passion for all those I left behind struggling through the dating scene, the countless blind dates that made you wish you were blind and the ones you wish would call, never do or did.

To keep from yelling through the house for the kids not to answer the phone because someone is wanting money, I put my passions to work for me through many avenues that generate a little income that at least keep the kids fed and the car payment made, phone bills are paid and occasionally I get the real treat of going out to dinner. Albeit my choices are slim and restricted to hamburger joints but at least I don’t have to scrub the grease off my stove that night.

Over the years I have grown to love the internet! I can wake up every single morning and not have to put on a happy to be me smile if I don’t want to. Whatever the day feels like, I just focus my energies in that particular direction and everyone is happy. Only on occasion will the many faces of me overlap, but hey, no one is perfect, right?

God only knows what would have become of me if I had been born a pioneer.
