My name is Mary and I am the stay at home mother of 2 kids.  A school-aged boy and a toddler girl.  Most of the time I am spending my days running around like a crazy lady, but when I'm not, I truly enjoy going back to myself and my interests! I love random crafts, refinishing old furniture, decorating and fixing up my house, animals and picking at people's brains (mentally, not physically).  I am also about to be going back to college as a student to major in human services.  I plan on being a counselor, specializing in addictions.  Tough job, but someone has to do it, and it might as well be people that have a passion to help others when no one else will or has given up on them!

Other things about me.  I live in the too cold or too hot midwest.  Specifically, the 'burbs of Chicago.  I love where I live.  I went to North Carolina for a year when I was 20, thinking I was going to love it, and ended up coming back up here.  As much as the weather sucks, I just can't live without Chicago and my friends and family!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog, and I hope you get a chance to come back and even like it enough to follow!  Pass this blog along to others that you think it would interest as well, email me, tweet me, and even join me on my blog where I talked about being a SAHM and family life! Have a wonderful day!
