We are family
For today's post, I decided I would tell you a little bit about me and me familia. For those of you who know me, you're excused. For those of you who don't, well, you're excused too.
I am Marcie, I am married to my high school sweetheart Gregg. We have 4 beautiful daughters, one son in law, and a dog.
Gregg and I met in school, we both dated each others best friends for a time then somehow ended up together. He is short and I am tall. He is patient and I am NOT. He is easy going and I am high strung. He is messy and I am clean. I tell ya, opposites attract!
We were married quite young. I didn't even have a drivers license but I was able to get a marriage license....go figure. IN THE BEGINNING, it was just he and I. We lived in a "mobile home" without air conditioning; talk about hades, whew! Our first daughter was born on my 17th birthday, 3 months after our one year anniversary. Daughter number two came 3 years later. By then we had moved "uptown" to an apartment with a swamp cooler. Daughter number three was being stubborn (still is) and decided to hang out upstairs for 5 years before blessing us with her appearance. The year she was born, we bought our first home! Life was good but not without trials. Daughter number four caught us by surprise and arrived 2 years and 4 months after her stubborn sister.
We have had our ups and downs. We have definitely done a lot of things the hard way, but man have we learned and grown! I love my crazy little family with all of our quirks and faults and I wouldn't change a single thing about my life.
I'm pretty sure I am hearing crickets chirp as I type. So, I'm sorry if I have bored you to tears!
