Show us your Life

Today I am linking up with Kelly's Korner for her returning series Show Us Your Life.  If you are visiting from there, welcome!
 
I am a 47-year-old mom of 8-year-old twin girls.  My husband Paul and I will celebrate our 10th anniversary this May.  Obviously, I was on the older side when we got married and tried to get pregnant and was down one ovary due to endometriosis so we sought fertility treatments right away and finally conceived the girls via IVF.
 
I started this blog about 7 1/2 year ago as a means of keeping family and friends informed about what was going on with the girls and as a way to vent about the difficulties of parenting twins (lots of places you can't easily go with a double stroller and Mom and Me yoga classes were out).  But I'm happy to say it’s MUCH easier now than those first few years!  After 6+ years as a stay-at-home mom I returned to work a few years ago.  Now I mostly whine blog about being a working mom trying to keep up with homework and activities while still (unsuccessfully) trying to find time for my never-ending and always increasing list of projects.  And I sometimes blog about my weight loss efforts (mostly futile, but I'm on a roll right now so stayed tuned).
 
I live in Washington State (yay for the west coast!  I don’t see many of us in the blogging world), about 25 miles east of Seattle.  I love animals, wine, HGTV and the Seahawks.  Thanks for stopping by.

Hi, visiting from Kelly's Korner. I'm in Duvall with 19 (almost 20) year old boy/girls twins. Two words for you -- Running Start!! Both did it at Cascadia and now my daughter will graduate at 20 this June from SPU. Son is training to be a commercial pilot. It is great to only have to pay for 2 years of college because we know that all of the comments about 2 for the price of 1 is a lie:)
