Who am I? Who are you?

This is the introduction of me for the Blog Trip hosted by Mommy Community.
Let's see, last night I was thinking about what I should say, I should have written it down.
I am a wife, SAHM (2 very active boys), daughter, sister (to 3), friend (to a few) and then WAHM. I know it reads weird to have SAHM and WAHM in the same sentence. I am fairly new to the internet working world and learning the ropes. So I still consider myself a SAHM since I am not yet contributing to the household finances. On the other hand I am spending many hours trying to be successful in this WAH world.
I have been married for 15 years, we were married for 10 years before we had kids. Sometimes I think it's harder because we waited to long and got so set in our routines and now it's all changed.
My boys are 31/2 almost 4 and 21/2 (16 months apart). They love to play and fight and I love them with all that I am. My 21/2 yr old just got diagnosed with Asthma, I have saying it since he was born. I have asthma also and just knew it.
My husband is in sales, and works alot of long hours, sometimes I feel like a single parent. He is a good father and loves the boys with all that he is.
Our lives have been turned upside down the past few years with starting a family, loss of some very important family members and this darn economy. Hence why I am trying to start an internet business, so I can still be home with my boys.
So what do I do, I am taking a stab at affiliate marketing. I would love to someday be able to show someone what I did that worked, and encourge someone to make it. I enjoy helping people and always cheer for the underdog.
Thats me in a quick nutshell. If you like what you read stick around, sometimes I actually have something interesting to say.

Oh yeah during the blog trip don't forget to leave a comment for an entry into my contest to win a $25.00 Gift Card. One entry per blog post and 1 extra entry for a link back to my blog (1 per day) let me know if you make a link so I can verify.

Hi--I found your blog via blogamama road trip--I sympathize with your--having kids after ten years of marriage must be a huge adjustment! Hang in there1

Hi! I'm here for the blog trip.

I can relate with the WAHM quest. I just started mine a month ago and I, too, have yet to contribute financially through my online gigs which is why I still can't quit my outside job. Anyway, wish you success on the WAH world. Hope you can stop by my part of the world.

Have a nice day!

Hi dropping by on the blog trip.
Hope you make it from a SAHM to a wAHM. I too am figuring the way on this path as I really wish it comes true for me too.

Hi, I'm visiting from Blog Trip. Nice meeting you. Ten years of marriage before kids, that's a long time. They will give you so much joy! Hope that you will mark me as a designation during your Blog Trip.

Hi! Nice to meet you. Here from Blogamama!

Parker Family said...

Hello! Stopping by on the blog trip. I am also a SAH/WAH mom. I consider myself SAH more, because my work is more of a hobby than work! Glad to get to know you!

TxGambit said...

Howdy from Texas. Here for the blog trip! Nice to meet you.

I hear you on the WAH stuff. I am trying some things to. As a single mom and this economy, I need that second income or at least something.

Good luck to you and I'll be back tomorrow for day two!

Jessica said...

Great site. Found you through blog trip.

Kimberly @ AllAboutKimberly said...

On the road trip with you. Great intro. Good luck with your work at home endeavors. I hope that it works out for you. I've started a second income from my blogging and am actually drafting a "how to" book right now on what I've done that has worked and what has failed. Can't wait to follow you throughout our trip. Heading over to blog about your contest.

Dropping in from the blog trip. It was nice getting to know more about you.

Brandy said...

Hi! it's nice to meet you and learn a little more about you. I think it's been a rough year for a lot of people, I've faced my fair share of economy issues as well as losing a loved one near to my heart.

Pamela Kramer said...

You are among friends! Maybe we should come up with a new acronym! SWAMS??? lol

I don't know what your background is but Chief Mom Officer.org is looking for blogging moms etc. Hope that helps you on your quest. See you soon, beep beep!

I do the same thing, I have been selling on ebay since 2000, I didn't quit work till 2002. I've even been a powerseller a few times, but I still call myself a SAHM, lol. I think it is because I don't earn a steady income or even one that is close month to month. It varies so much.

laura said...

Found you a bit late via the road trip, but thanks for offering a great giveaway! I'm due in Jan and trying to get my 'mom blog' up and running - everyone's blog I've been to has given me great ideas! Good luck with your stay at home business. It's always worth taking a shot at! Keep on truckin.

I found your blog via ABOG. I am sorry to hear about your son's asthma, but many children grow out of it - hopefully he will be one of them!
