Hi! I’m Becky. Born and raised in Coventry, RI. I am the youngest of two. My mom pretty much raised my brother and I alone until she married my dad when I was like 6 or 7. My ‘rents are pretty cool, they live in Florida so I don’t get to see them very often. I met Tony in September of 1996 and we started dating in October. We married on May 15, 1999, he is a software engineer. He has been there through thick and thin. We have our ups and downs but after 16 years we are still together so it must be love. We have 3 amazing children Tyler (12), Brianna (10), and Kaelyn (2). They are smart, well mannered, and fun loving children that fill my life with joy.
I have a bff named Katie; she is my partner in crime, you will read a lot about our escapades.
I stay at home to take care of Kaelyn (from this point I will refer to her by her nickname K). I tried the working mom thing but I was filled with guilt because my baby girl didn’t know who I was because my work hours were so crazy. I miss working but I love being with my baby girl more. I do some direct sales on the side, Avon and Pampered Chef, but I’m not really a salesperson so I don’t make money doing it. I suck.
I am a very straight forward person. It is probably safe to say that I don’t have a filter, I say whats on my mind. I’m not really a fan of people, I have people in my life that I love and some that I like and some that I like and love at the same time. No one else matters to me. I don’t care, what they do it their business, what I do is mine. My dad taught me to “assume everyone is an asshole until they prove you different.” Some may think this is a harsh motto to raise children by but it really does prevent a lot of bullshit. I’m glad I was raised this way and I raise my children the same way.
This blog will be a place for me to speak what is on my mind. I will say things that will make you laugh, make you cry, and piss you off but it is MY blog so if you don’t like what I have to say don’t read it. I’m not interested in arguing with you, I don’t care about your points of view or opinions. Its my head, my thoughts.
I’m looking forward to this journey.
