So I’m supposed to introduce myself.
I’ve decided to come out of the closet. For this blog. Scary.
(Diana Ross’ “I’m Coming Out” is playing in the background)
I’m 34 years old
I am married to the love of my life C-Dub for the last 5 years.(or it will be on the 26th of this month) I met him though an online dating service(yes I did!) We got married one year later, bought a house, and started living the American Dream. 3 years in, I decided(noticed I said I decided) that it was time to have a baby. Well, we tried and we tried, and we tried. Finally, after a loooog year of trying, I did get pregnant, only to miscarry at 11 weeks.
But, exactly a year later, on Thanksgiving Day the Pookah was born. And life has changed for good.
I live in Atlanta, and I am a registered nurse on Labor and Delivery. I work Part time. At NIGHT. Even though it’s only 2 nights a week, those two nights are the hardest nights of my life!
I am going natural for the 2nd time in my life. I don’t know why, but it’s much harder this time. My hair seems to have a mind of it’s own. I am also trying to loose the 20 pounds that are left over from my miscarrige and the pregnancy so I can look like that photo above again. Lord, I miss that top!
I love my mother. Yes, she is my best friend. I have to add that because, that’s a big part of who I am….Rose’s Daughter.
So that’s life right now, I am a wife, a mother, a nurse, my mother’s child and me somewhere in between. Hope you enjoy reading about it!
