W.A.R., those are the initials of both of my sons. Wesley Ares Richardson, he was first. He’s four but will be five next month. Goodness time flies. Dad’s middle name is Atlas. You know, the Greek god that held up the world as punishment. Ares is the Greek god of war. See what we did there. William came next. William Axel Richardson; he is three. They are only 15 months apart. To the day. They are both born on the 16th. Axel wasn’t a Greek god, but it means Father of Peace. I know you see what we did there too. War. Peace. Anyways, that introduces and explains the title of my blog a bit.
I’m Mallory. I live in a house full of boys. My hubby, Jeremiah, our two boys, and our dog, Tookie-Britches. For a while now, one of my biggest struggles has been feeling as if I have nothing for myself. My husband is a hard worker. He operates his own business, has a part-time job, and goes to school. Still, somehow he manages to have time for himself. Lately his “thing” has been the gym. I’m happy for him. Still, I’m jealous too. At first I thought it was because he was going to the gym and I’m not able to. The more I thought about it, and I mean over weeks and weeks of thinking about it, I realized it’s not really about the gym. It’s the fact that I am jealous that he has something for himself. Something he enjoys so much that he finds a way to make time for it weekly. I want that something. I want something for me. That breath of fresh air. That stress relief. So here I am. After months and months and months….. and months of talking about it, I’m finally writing. Is it about anything important? Maybe not. Will anyone read it? Probably not. Is it MY “something?” I think YES!!
What I can guarantee you are in for: complaining, adventure, crazy kid antics, boredom, and a diary from a regular person. I’m a regular, plain-jane, working mom, busy wife, full-time Master’s student, trying to survive life woman. There won’t be anything fake or made-up. I’m just a normal person checking one thing off her bucket list——blog…. check!!!
