Meaning of my name

What is the meaning of my blog name?

Benders Balancing Act

For starters, my husbands last name is Bender so it is my tribute to him. I chose to keep my maiden name with this marriage. It is a lot of work to change all your information once you have a name change. My hubby was OK with it so what was the harm and I have a sister-in-law also named Lisa.

The balancing act part is just how I feel. I wear so many hats and am into trying new things on top of my daily responsibilities.

Normal everyday....

I am a SAHW so my day does include taking care of my hubby. Making sure that he is happy when he leaves for work and that he has been fed. Just like a child!

I also take care of my cousins baby during the day. She is 9 months old and into everything. She is so much fun and overwhelming at the same time. My hubby and I really wanted kids when we first got married but she has helped us to not feel bad that we can't have kids.

This one may sound crazy but I am a SAHDM. (Stay at home dog mom) My dogs are spoiled rotten and they know it. We rescued a husky from a parking lot 4years ago and he is just like a child. He gets jealous of the baby often and if I don't make up for it at the end of the day he will retaliate! 

I am kind of OCD and have to try and stay on top of all the dog hair that lines my baseboards. My house is way bigger than I need and keeping it clean is more work than it should be. (One of the many reasons I want to move) 

Extras I try to do....

Well for starters is this blog. I thought it would be fun to have a place where I could go to share my lessons on things. I am not doing it for profit, it's just for joy.

Then of course I am always trying some new sort of workout. This month is Bender Fitness challenge. It is so fun that I found someone who puts together and shares her workouts and her last name is the same as my hubby's!

I also wanted to do some homemade gifts for Christmas. Yea, I only have one done and haven't even started on my decorations I wanted to make. At least I don't have a tree to put up this year.

I am trying my hand at better and more creative pictures so I am going to do an Instagram picture of the day December. So it is holiday based. Should be fun I think! If you want to follow along here is my

Oh and I am doing a 30 day inspiration journal! I use to journal a lot and wanted something to encourage me to get back into it. 30-day-challenge-inspirational-journal

So that is why I chose the name that I did. I hope you enjoyed reading about my craziness!
