Hi! I’m Katie. I’ve been blogging for about 5 years now, but I am eager to leave behind the persona I was for so many years to take on a new life. So much has changed in the past 2 years that I don’t even feel like the “old me” and I feel as if I owe myself a new me. Even though I no longer feel like the same person I was “back then”, I’m still me, bad and good. I wouldn’t be able to enjoy the good parts without having endured the bad parts of myself.
So, “About Me” in a bullet list:
- I love lists.
- I am a Cop’s Wife, and thought I know “it takes a special person to be a Cop’s Wife”, I don’t think I’m all that special. My Cop would beg to differ.
- Not only am I a Cop’s Wife, I’m also a MotorCop’s Wife. I know “it takes a special person to be a Motor Cops Wife”, and that, I am. My MotorCop would agree.
- I have 3 children.
- I get a high off of getting paid to shop.
- Dave Ramsey changed my life in more ways that teaching me about the Envelope Budget and Zero-Sum Budget.
- I’ve been a baptized Christian since I was a year and six days old, but spent far too much time on my worldly needs instead of my spiritual ones. Now that I’ve righted that, silver linings seem much more obvious.
- I think my intensified, and much more publicly spoken, faith in Christ Jesus weirds some people out. All I can do is pray for them.
- I wake up an hour before my kids to read my Bible. It’s not just a storybook, people.
- I’ve been trying to be more humble and gracious. Both of those things are directly correlated to how I want my kids to grow up.
- I hate these “About Me” pages.
- I like the sensation of freshly shaved legs and clean sheets, but not as much as I do the sensation of a sharp knife cutting through lettuce.
- I like my house to be tidy at the end of each day. My Hubby does the bathing of the kiddos while I do the dinner dishes and neaten up the house. It’s one of my favorite times of the day.
- As I get older, I strive for more *real* friendships, built on mutual respect, goals, and struggles, rather than being built on having kids the same age or going to the same park/gym/mom’s club/school.
- I try to not want things “perfect”, rather I try to have things “better than before”.
