I just wanted to let you know that I've started a new blog called, "Sahmbie Chronicles." You can visit by going HERE.
What is a "sahmbie" you ask? Well, I came up with that word one day while I was out driving and reflecting on how I felt inside...dead, no energy, uninterested, lifeless...like a zombie. I was thinking that as a stay-at-home-mom (SAHM) , I should really be feeling happy, energetic and alive because being able to stay home with my baby is a gift and all the time I have at home could be used to do all the things I've always wanted to do...like make me a better person.
Anyway, the word "sahmbie" popped into my head and it perfectly described how I felt...like a mom zombie! That was 5 or 6 months ago. I haven't done anything to get out of "sahmbie" mode, but that's all about to change.
My new blog will be my online journal that chronicles my (hopeful) transformation from a "sahmbie" to the woman I want to be...that Proverbs 31 woman...now you know she aint no "sahmbie!"
I'm setting a lot of goals, long term and short term and am giving myself a year to do all this...starting Jan 1. Yes, it may just sound like another attempt at a new year's resolution, quite honestly I've been thinking the same thing. But by writing the blog, I figure I'll be more accountable...will ya'll help keep me accountable? Truthfully, I don't think I can take another failure. I've tried to change so many times, but just feel like I hit a brick wall every time. But I really can't live like this anymore...writing about it in this blog is my last ditch effort.
Please go on over there and read more. Today's post (the first one) is all about the ugly truth. I have to get honest if I ever want to change, right? Even if it is really scary.
And if you feel so inclined, please follow me. It will be easier for me to be accountable if I know folks are actually keeping up with me.
As for "Happily Home," I will continue to blog about my family, my home, and all the other random stuff I talk about...it's not going anywhere.
