30 Days of Me Challenge - Day 2

Day 02- The meaning behind your Blog name:

faint of heart
Fig. people who are squeamish; someone who is sickened or disturbed by unpleasantness or challenge

Being a mother is one of the ...wait, let me take that back, being a mother is *the* hardest thing I have ever done and continue to do. Every day is a challenge! You can't be squeamish physically or even mentally when you have kids - poopy blow out diapers, drooling, snots, scrapes and bruises and everything else in between! 

So there you have it!

Dropped the ball big time! So I am issuing myself a challenge!

Goodness gracious - I haven't blogged in forever! Once again, this thing called life has gotten in the way...toss in some laziness and a bit of lacking inspiration and well you've got a blog that hasn't been updated in months! 


I decided to get myself back into daily blogging I'd go on Google and search for some daily prompts - something to help spur the creative juices! And I found several - yay me!!! 


So tonight I will start - smack dab in the middle of the month I am going to do a 30 day challenge! LOL! 


Without further ado:


30 Days of Me Challenge:




Day 01- A recent picture of you and 15 interesting facts about yourself
This was taken last week. April 2012.

1. I just turned 36 years old in March. When I was little, the idea of being in my 30's seemed like a lifetime away. And now that I am here, it seems like life is just flying by. 

2. I am the youngest of 8 children. I was born 11 years after my parents thought they were done having children. 

3. I have a major fear of water. I don't even like water hitting my face while in the shower. I try to avoid it at all costs - so I make sure to wash my face with a wash clothe once I am out of the shower. 

4. I grew up in Brooklyn, NY. Brooklyn will always be home in my heart, but now that I've lived in Maine for 20 years, this is starting to feel like a second home to me. 

5. I married the second guy I ever dated. I was told it would never last. And yes, we've had ups and downs, but what couple hasn't? We will celebrate our 13th anniversary next week, though we've been together a total of 18 yrs now. 

6. I always wanted four children. Last June (2011) I made the ultimate decision to have a complete hysterectomy (everything was removed). In my mind I knew we were done with two kids but in my heart, it still kind of stings. 

7. I cry extremely easy. Like EXTREMELY easy. 

8. I am a special needs parent. Those are words I never thought I would ever utter. And despite having been one for 4 yrs now, it still seems surreal! 

9. I have so many ideas floating around in my head, so many things that I want to do, and yet I can't seem to get anything accomplished. 

10. I want to pursue a career in photography but am afraid to take the leap. 

11. I want to travel to Ireland some day and see where my ancestors came from.

12. I am learning new things about me everyday - things that lead me to believe that perhaps Trev's issues come directly from me. I just haven't decided if I want to pursue an actual diagnosis. 

13. I am currently on a waiting list to have weight loss surgery. 

14. I have sleep apnea and sleep every night using my cpap machine. 

15. I went to a private school for the first 13 yrs of my educational career. 

Stay tuned for tomorrow's prompt: The meaning behind your Blog name
