Existing in my small town: I am currently settling into my 40′s. I share my crazy life with my husband and four children. Three of the children are cursed with my DNA and the other is blessed to only be related to me through marriage. I stay home with our special needs son. He’s amazing. It’s the other three that need the attention. On any given day you can come into my home and witness bad hair days, diva moments and attempts at “gangster” back talk. They have their own special need to drive me insane. On a serious note, our baby has down syndrome. I can honestly say that this has not put stress on our home, but rather made it a more compassionate loving one. Unfortunately, it hasn’t done a thing to stop the f*#&%ing noise in our house caused by the others. That’s life.
I’m a sarcastic and at times, highly inappropriate person. I have a B.S in Mass Communications/Advertising-Copywriter. Am I working in the advertising field? No. I do have a great portfolio from the early 90′s though. I started my Master’s in Special Education. Am I working in the field of education? No. I stopped after one class because teaching is like being in politics. For those of you who thought it was about the kids……….suckers! So then…..I started my Associates Degree in Nursing (RN). Am I working in the healthcare field? No. I voluntarily withdrew 2x to do the mom thing. Besides being a quitter, I’m a stay at home mom, furniture decoupager (because I buy cheap shit and make it look less ugly), mediocre cook, television watcher (sometimes it is on), sometimes exercise person (40%), iffy blog writer and a whore for my husband (its reciprocal).
