A few weeks ago, my husband surprised me with one of these ancestryDNA kits as an early Christmas present. You may think I am cheesy, but I am excited! I have been meaning to do it for a few weeks now, but I have allowed life to get in the way. It has been a super hectic few weeks, though, in my defense. Now that it is Saturday, there is no work, and the dogs are outside, there are no distractions.
I don’t know a whole lot about my family lineage on either side. I am not expecting this to be super specific, but I would like to know if I am more than just Irish (and the Irish thing is something I have just always been told I was).
Who am I?
That is a very deep question, if you sit there and try to think about it.
Where do I come from?
This has always been so mysterious to me, and until the most recent years, I have not really known where I could turn to even begin trying to find out where I come from. A lot of family on both my mother and father’s side are deceased and even with those individuals, I didn’t know a whole lot about them.
So, I am like a child waiting in line with their parent to get done talking to the cashier…I don’t have a lot of patience. My plan of attack is to try and forget about it, or else it is going to drive me nuts. I don’t even know what to expect. That’s part of what is making it so fun for me!
What would be hilarious is if I am not Irish, haha.
I will update whenever I get my results back, so I hope you stay tuned.
