I am a mom to two boys, ages 16 and 13. Our oldest is finishing his sophomore year of High School, and our youngest is finishing 7th grade at the Middle School. My husband and I will celebrate 18 years of marriage this fall. Oh, and we also have an 8 year old Irish Setter and newly rescued 3 year old American Brittany that would be sad if I left them out.
I have been a SAHM for 12 years, and have also worked outside the home. I currently work as a Nurse Manager at a local clinic part-time.
Our family is very involved in Boy Scouts, Church and 4-H here in town. In my spare time, I am a voracious reader, love to cook and bake, and enjoy both vegetable and flower gardening. I recently started learning how to embroider and quilt, albeit slowly and painfully. I have always loved to write (I actually was an English major before switching to Nursing in college), and blogging with The Patch is a great way for me to reconnect with that.
