First post!

Welcome to my very first blog post! I've had journals before, but they were strictly for my own (& occasionally my evil step-sisters) entertainment; I hope this one proves worth reading to more than just myself! Perhaps that's a lofty goal, I'll revise that to 'I hope this one lasts me beyond my next brain reset!' Its the middle of the night, also known as 'mommy's only quiet moment of solitude'.

Anyway, let me put my inane ramblings aside & introduce myself! My name is Lauren, & I'm a 24 year old stay at home mom, & on-again-off-again student! Let me clarify 'student' - I'm a Liberal Arts major, with a minor in Jokes About Liberal Arts Majors, because I've heard all of them. I am quite close to having a measly Associate of Science degree in Liberal Arts after attending a semester here & there since 2006. After I get that over with, I'm moving on to a 'real' degree as a Registered Nurse. I hope to be a grown up with a real job by the time I'm dead! I currently have a 3.87 GPA after 47 credits. Yeah, I know, quite lame to toot my own horn like that, but that's my largest accomplishment behind my little booger, & the rest of this blog will be full to the brim about him!

Now that I'm on my third run-on paragraph, maybe I should explain my blog's title! The eponymous booger is my son, a lovely little toddler who was given this unfortunate nickname through no fault of his own. He's not a particularly mucus-laden kid, nor has he even expertly shot a booger to date - its just a nickname I blurted out early on, & has 'stuck' (terrible pun #1!). Oftentimes, when I'm chasing him across the yard as he clings to our dog's collar, or diving across the kitchen to keep him from pulling out the entire contents of our refrigerator, I feel like a sidekick to an over-reaching super hero, just knowing my contribution to whatever epic deed will be a day late & a buck short, nine out of ten times.

Well, its just after 1 am now, & that means I should get my six hours of sleep while the getting's good! Have a good one, wherever you find yourself!

  9. My brother lives in Honolulu. He says there are too many tourists near him. Maybe you are in a nice desolate place nowhere near TOURISTS! I have to deal with them everyday in NYC. They all seem to be french the past few weeks. Annoyed. :/
