Hello there! This is my first blog and I really don’t have much time to sit and write a lot as I haven’t exactly set up a workable schedule that would allow me to do my mommy-thing, house work and have a bit of a social life but it is currenly 12:48 a.m and both of my kids are asleep, I’ve done enough housework and I’ve gotten my fill of social time (A.K.A Facebook only because this snow wouldn’t allow me to travel today–or should I say yesterday?) As previously mentioned, I don’t have a lot of time so excuse me if this blog is riddled with run-on sentences and grammatical errors!
Okay, so first thing’s first! The name on the ‘first name’ line on my birth reads Tasia–pronounced Asia with a T in front, so for the rest of my life I am forced to tell people to call me just that: Tasia, Asia with a T in front. Pretty simple right? That’s how it’s spelled and that’s how it’s pronounced. Wrong! Nothing is ever that simple (so I’ve come to learn) After twenty-six years of life I still have to say, “no, not Tah-see-uh, not Tah-sha and definitely not Tee-aye-sha. It’s Tasia, Asia with a T in front.” I’m starting to think my first name was supposed to be Tasia’AsiawithaTinFront but my mother realized there wasn’t enough space on the line and ain’t nobody had time for all of that so she cut off everything after the apostrophe. I guess that’s just one of the things that I will have to deal with for the rest of my life among other things like, say, marriage and motherhood.
Ah, marriage. You say ‘yes’ to the engagement, ‘I do’ to the marriage and spend the rest of your life saying ‘wow, you get on my nerves’. I think I’m still a newlywed, I’m not quite sure when exactly my “newlywed” status expires but my husband Cory (spelled with just those four letters, there’s no ‘e’ in his name) let me steal and keep his last name four days ago last year on January 4th, 2016. And after hitting my one year milestone I realize that nothing keeps me more insane. That’s right! That wasn’t a typo. I said insane and insane is what I meant.
It’s true when they say, it’s good to not only love your mate but to like them as well because if I didn’t like my husband at least 90% of the time the past five years that we have been together would have never came about. In addition to that I have learned that it’s not a lie when people say marriage is hard because it is. It’s literally a contract you sign where you give another person permission to push you to the brink of insanity but in the fine print of that contract there go those pesky little letters stating that though your dude might piss you off you can’t put the voodoo on him. Oops, did I accidentally imply that I’m the perfect one in the marriage? Between you and I, it’s true but because my husband might come across this blog (because uh, I will show it to him) I’m forced to lie and say we are equally annoying and cause an equal amount of frustration for one another. See? I told you marriage was hard. Just kidding, Just kidding! Okay, Moving on!
Headaches aside, together, my husband and I have two of the most beautiful girls in the world! Okay, so maybe not all headaches are aside. But in my defense, the headaches my girls give me are different. See, when hubby gives me a headache it’s like “in old age I’m going to slip laxative in your oatmeal, honey, just wait on it” and when my kids give me a headache it’s like “meh, this headache will have nothing on the one my future grandchildren will give them, so I’m not even worried.” It’s all about patience.
Our oldest is four years old going on five this July and we named her Julyza, the month of July with zee-aye at the end. Ju-ly-za, not Ju-lee-za and definitely not Jules-za. Julyza. Our youngest daughter is four months going on five months on the 17th and she’ll be turning one in August. And no, her name is not Augustina. We named her Korianna and if you don’t know how to pronounce that then refer to your 1st grade English teacher, but I’ll give you a hint, think of the brunette from Frozen when you pronounce the ‘Anna’ in my child’s name.
My girls are two of the most hilarious little things to ever live, the main thing I post about on my Facebook page and the main reasons I keep going even when I want to just give up. Oh! And they are also the reason a good friend of mine and fellow blogger told me to start a blog of own!
You’re probably wondering why I haven’t quite explained more about who I am and why I, instead wrote about the main key players that make my life as interesting as it is. To be honest, I’m still learning about who I am and I hope that through posting these blogs I gain knowledge of who Tasia is, what Tasia can do and what her strengths and weaknesses are. The only things I know at this point is Tasia has a billion stories to tell and she cannot wait to share them with the world!
Is it cocky to write in third person?
Oh, and yes, I’m also deaf and yes I know how to correctly spell ‘definitely’ Just in case you were wondering. I’m extremely new to this blogging thing so forgive me if I’m doing it wrong!
