I’m Rebekah. I’m a badass wife & mom extraordinaire, chronic illness warrior, slow runner, recovering engineer, domestic engineering unicorn, mental health advocate, and bullshit identifier.
What am I doing HERE? well, I am finally living my dream of being a blogger and I’m even starting to live my even bigger, scarier dream of writing a book or three!
What’s my blog about? The thing is, even though I’ve always been awkward (see the picture… amiright?) I haven’t always truly embraced me for ME. I’ve always been trying to squeeze myself into the little boxes society suggested to me. And I never quite fit. And I’m tired as hell of trying. So… NOT ANYMORE! It’s not like it was an overnight transformation, though. Hence, this blog! Not mention I’ve got quite a bit to say…
Some other random things about me that you might find interesting about me include:
- I co-host a podcast!
- My family drives basically everywhere. We’re insane.
- I have a love-hate relationship with food. I know it’s the best medicine out there… but cheese. And Diet Coke. And candy. Thankfully I really DO love vegetables! And fruit! And water! Balance my peoples, balance.
- I have Celiac Disease, Type 1 Diabetes, and Hashimoto’s Disease. My son has DMDD, ADHD, and Conduct Disorder. Not to mention I have another (rambunctious) kid, 2 dogs, a cat, and a husband too. We manage A LOT in our family. I have a no-bullshit approach. And humor is my best friend.
- One time when someone said ‘How are you?’ in passing I responded with ‘Turtle.’ So there’s that.
There you have it. A basic intro to me! You’ll learn pretty quickly if you stick around that what you see is what you get. I’m pretty open, honest, and down to earth about what’s going on in my mind. (Hint: It might be camels.) I haven’t always been like this, and I’ve gotta say, DAMN it feels good to be REAL! Heads up, I also have a bit of a penchant for swear words. Whoops. #sorrynotsorry
