Okay, let me add some details.....from the left is my half-son Cory, my first husbands, second wife and the mother to the half-son, my daughter Jennifer, my son, Jason and the bride is my half daughter Kristen .....the daughter to the second wife......Oh wow, is that clear? My first husband married again after we divorced and had 2 kids with her......I spent alot of time making sure my kids knew their brothers and sisters and the second wife Cheryl. They are all very close now and my kids walked Kristen down the aisle. Taylor calls Cheryl, grandma Sha..........Their father passed away in January of this year from drinking his life away.....remember I said TMI.
This blog is going to be about me and I will be honest with myself and anyone who is interested in listening.
Okay, so my very first blog post. I love reading blogs, I can't believe I am doing this myself
Just so everyone knows, I am so very TMI. I sometimes share way too much but my kids (2 grown...well okay maybe half grown) will not be reading this so it should be okay. If I offend anyone, it is not intended. If I make any blogging etiquette errors, please let me know and I will not do it again.
Okay, now to me.....so weird to be talking about myself. I really don't do that easily.
'kay....here goes......I am in my fifties, married twice, divorced twice, 2 kids and 2 grandchildren....hmmm lots of 2's, never noticed that. I have a son Jason who is married to Lucy and they have a 2 year old little girl named Jainna. I have a daughter Jennifer, who has a 10 year son named Taylor who is my blogs namesake. Taylor came along at a time in my life where I was deeply, deeply lost (right after my separation from my second husband, I really did not expect to get divorced from him) and he provided a shining light in my life. He truly is my world, I have never loved someone as much as I love him. I love my children very much but Taylor....ah well, he is my world. Jen and Taylor lived with me for the first 8 years of his life.
I do love Jainna very much however when she was born, she started having seizures and was put on medication to control them. I really wasn't able to spend as much time as I would have liked with her. I tried to watch her for 4 hours one time when she was about 6 months old and I had to call her parents to come get her she was so upset and throwing up because she was so upset. After that she did not really want to be around me until she was about 15 months old. We are getting along now and she now runs to me when she sees me. Yippee! I am so very happy that is happening now.
Both my parents are gone, I talk to them daily and no, I am not crazy, I just miss them so much! I have one brother and one sister....we don't really have time for the story of my brother and sister......I will leave those stories for another time....very complicated.
I love to cross stitch, my most favorite designer is Mirabilia. I have finished a couple of them....they took me forever but I don't care. They are gorgeous and I love doing them. I don't have a camera but my daughter does so I shall take pics of them shortly. I haven't been stitching much lately as I have a frozen shoulder and it is very difficult to stitch. I am trying though, I am doing Sabrina by the big M but that skirt is a b****h. Driving me crazy. I have been doing lots of crocheting, I did a blanket for my grandson Taylor and one for my granddaughter. I am now working on one for Taylors best friend Savannagh (and after that one for her sister, can't leave her out)
I work fulltime at a bank here in Canada and it is okay but I am really not happy there. But work is work and I gotsa eat and buy stash. Which I actually have tons of (bad Sharon).....I will take a pic of my stash one day.
I live by myself in a 2 bedroom apartment in Toronto, I plan on re-locating sometime after my trip next year........Aaah my trip, Taylor and I starting planning a trip about 3 months ago. At first he wanted to go to Scotland and go see the Loch Ness monster (and yes, he knew he would see it.....gosh I love his clarity) but then I started thinking if I am going to spend that kind of cash, then I want to go somewhere I have always wanted to go (I did want to go to the UK, another adventure)......NEW ZEALAND.....yup, I have had this thing about New Zealand for a very long time....not sure why.....I loved it even before Lord of the Rings (yes, my most favorite movie and the best Xmas present I ever got from my son.....the box set) So I found a farmstay on the south island (Taylor or T as we all call him....loves the farmstay idea, he is really a country person at heart)......and we are going to stay there for part of the time and take trips into Christchurch, there is a place there where you can swim with the dolphins......Oh my, he doesn't know about that yet, he is going to love it. It is going to be Taylor and Nanas excellant adventure......I really can't wait.
Well this is a really long first post........I should keep some secrets for another post......LOL.....not sure who is going to read it anyway.
Yack at you later.
