Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

As I do every morning before I head out the door to work, I quickly check Twitter, and find that there is a party going on, and dammit why did I not know about it?????

As soon as I got home from work, I had to's a Blog Party!  I've never attended one-so I think it's about time to fix that! 

Now, I'm usually pretty quiet at the start of a party, but I can't be at this one-so here goes.....

I'm Leigh-that's Lee, not Leah, or Lay, and I'm 43.  I've been married for almost 16 years to Tool Time, and we have 3 kids.  One daughter, Payback-14, and 2 sons, Peter Sam-12, and G-man-8.  We live in (hot humid)Florida.  I work outside the home as a Personal Trainer, and Group Ex Instructor.  I also have a part-time at The Vitamin Shoppe because this economy SUCKS, and well it's a looonnnggg story, but we need the money.

Being that my kids are older, and I'm way past diaper duty-I've entered a whole new world being the mom of teenagers.  HOLY CRAP-this is harder than having 2 toddlers running away from you in opposite directions!  The head games....the drama....the guilt's unbelievable!!  But, I wouldn't trade my life for anything-my family is my world! 

As far as parties go-LOVE THEM!  Give me a cosmopolitan, and I'm all game-as long as I know who's there, otherwise it takes me a while to drink enough warm up!! So my plan for tonight is to join this check out some fellow partiers...can't wait to make new friends!

So ladies, I'm off to drink link up now....Enjoy the party!

  4. I love the title of your blog. Very clever. I've always wished I could do something cute with my name (let's see, Deana, hmm, Deanie Weenie...uh, no, can't do much with it!). My kids aren't little anymore but they aren't (quite) teenagers yet. They are starting to pull the attitude now and then and I get a glimpse of the coming years. Eeek!
