Welcome to Mighty Maggie, home to the unedited off the cuff drivel of one Maggie Cheung since 2004. There were no babies then, although the devastatingly handsome Chinese man had been legally attached to me for about a year, and what in the world did I have to write about? I can't go look, because there is nothing more embarrassing than perusing one's own ancient weblog archives. I'm sure those posts had something to do with sleeping in, the fun things we did with friends on weeknights, and going out to dinner because why not?
We still go out to dinner, mainly because I hate cooking, but not that much, mainly because three kids. Jackson will be nine next week, Molly is seven, Emma is four. Next year they'll all be in school 5 days a week and WHAT WILL THE WORLD BE LIKE THEN? There will probably be a chocolate fountain in my bathtub and a unicorn in the back yard.
A few months ago, when I decided to take a blogging break (that's what we're calling it, ok? Not a Do I Really Exist In The World If I Don't Have An Online Presence Emotional Breakdown) I realized that hey, my kids, especially that oldest one, he might not appreciate me writing about that one time he [RETRACTED] and that thing he said to me last night where [RETRACTED] etc. etc. So this new and hopefully improved version of Mighty Maggie will be more about me and less about them. I mean, it's always been about me. So much me. But, you know, less about how what they're doing is making me insane.
As of May 5, 2016 I am 36 years old, I stay home with the kids, I'm a prayer leader for a Seattle-based healing ministry (there's your Whoa, She's Probably Gonna Talk About Jesus! alert/warning), and I run a teeny tiny cookie company with my sister, Katie. Which is ten kinds of pain in the butt and pretty much the last thing I would recommend anyone do, ever, is start a food company from scratch. But no one told me that! And here we are. We sell fancy sugar cookies and French macarons and you can find pictures of those things here. And maybe it isn't all bad. My sister's pretty awesome and sometimes the bakery funds the going out to dinner when I can't bear another night of scraping the kids' plates into the compost bin.
Phillip is the dude I met in my dorm sophomore year. He works at a tech firm, like the rest of Seattle, and I WILL write about him.
Other things About Me:
- I use a lot of unnecessary capitalization.
- I am a RULE FOLLOWER. But I try to relax. Occasionally.
- Some people can eat a lot of chocolate. I can eat more chocolate in one sitting than those people combined.
- I've met some of my favorite people through this blog.
- I'm a Cradle Catholic/Fake Protestant. You can read more about that here.
- I like personality tests. I'm an INFJ. My enneagram type is 3. Now you know everything.
This is, possibly, the most authentic recent picture of me:
I'm ALL ABOUT being authentic on the internet.
