250 Words

Today begins the blog every day in May challenge.  The Topic for today is "the story of your life in 250 words or less."  Not so sure this is going to be possible, but I'm certainly going to give it a biiiig shot!
Hello 1980's!!!
I was born in Gulfport, MS in 1986.  The summer before I started kindergarten, our home burned to the ground, just a day after my Mom went school clothes shopping for me and two of my sisters.  I have 4 sisters, 3 living, and 1 passed away. I am the baby of my family. I have 8 nieces & nephews, and 1 great niece.  I married my husband in 2008.  In 2009 we lost a baby that rocked us to our core.  Baby loss is something I'll always have to reckon with.  2010 was a great year.  We found out we were expecting our baby boy, and September of that year, we welcomed him into our family with open arms.  I am a full time working Mom.  We have 2 dogs, Addie & Onnie.  Addie is 10 pounds, and Onnie is 100 pounds.  Both are inside dogs.  I still live in the same "city" that I grew up in, if you wish to even call it a city.  More like country.  The school me and my husband attended, our son will also attend.  Also, just for reference, my husband and I never knew one another in school, and graduated 2 years apart. My sister, whom of which was by best friend, and is no longer - is a drug addict.  I say this because it has help define me as a wife, mother, sister, daughter, and aunt.  It has changed me for the better because I see just how precious life truly is...
Side Note: Yes I know that very lengthy paragraph, which is full of run-on's is alllll over the place.. but I just went on a whim and wrote it with out editing it at all, because after all it was on my heart.
