Hello friends! (I hope I can call you that, I think I can lol) I have decided that I should share some more about myself. My original about me section is kind of blah and depressing. I wrote that when depression was still a big part of my life. Well lately the monster has retreated into its cave. I still have the occasional iffy day but nowhere near as bad as they used to be. Depression is a part of my life but it is not my whole life.
So onto the real story, me! I am Chelsea, I am a breastfeeding, baby led weaning, cloth diapering, vaccinating, stay at home mom of Skyla. Skyla is 20 months old and took 2 years of trying to get here. She is stubborn right from her birth when she was forcibly evicted 9 days past her due date. I was on Pitocin for 32 hours and she wouldn’t come out so I had a c section and the stinker was sunny side up. Since that day she was be willful and strong, but I wouldn’t change it for anything.
I know the site says babies and I only have one baby so I need to remedy that. I would like to have another baby soon. But being 20 months postpartum and still not having my period makes it kind of difficult. We are leaving it up to God at this point. Last time we went through fertility treatment and it was very, very stressful. Plus when we finally did get pregnant it took away the fun of surprising our family. They all knew when we would be able to test so it was impossible to hide it from them. I actually came up with the name one day when we were watching our niece and nephew, it was so difficult but so amazing.
My husband Phil and I have been together for 6 years now, and for 4 of those we have been married. Like most couples we have our problems, but we also have our love and understanding of each other. We support each other’s dreams and ambitions. We also fight like cats and dogs but he is my best friend. Other than my other best friend, Amy, who I’ve known for 22 years. Amy lives in my home town of Cottage Grove, MN. Phil and I live about 5 hours away in North Dakota. I miss my friend.
I love to do crafts, much to the dismay of my husband. “Why buy it made when I can spend twice as much and do it myself?!” is the running joke in our household. I also love to cook. I like to take random things we have in our cupboard and make a meal that tastes good. I am nowhere near being a chef but I still love to be in the kitchen. Except for dishes, dishes can burn in hell. I like to garden but I do not like pulling weeds. We have creeping Charlie in our garden and it is very annoying. I also like to garage sale, finding deals is a high for me. If I think something is cool or unique or can be repurposed and the price is right you bet your sweet ass I am bringing it home with me. O I also swear, if you haven’t figured that out yet. Sorry mom.
Let’s see, my favorite colors are blue, green, and purple. Favorite food categories are Mexican and Asian. If I could have both of those every day I would be a happy camper. Speaking of camping, I like to do it but I do not like bugs, or latrines. My pee mixing with another person’s pee freaks me out, and I always feel like something is going to bite my butt. My husband says I’m weird, I think I’m perfectly normal. Pffffttt ok I lied, I am not normal, but I’m not going to change so he can get over it. I prefer camping in a camper with a/c and a bathroom, and a lake I can swim in. Ok I like staying in lake cabins. I am not the biggest fan of camping. I do like fires though. Not like an arsonist. Campfires. With smores. I like food.
Well I feel like I have told you a sufficient amount about myself. Anything else you’d like to learn? I am happy to share. If you can’t tell by the long post. Anything you want to see on the blog? Let me know in the comments section below!
