Welcome to My Life

I am a 34-year-old working mom. I have 2 kids, a boy who will soon be 6 and a girl who will soon be 3.

My son is in kindergarten. He is of course beautiful and brilliant. He is my sensitive deep thinker. He obsesses about all sorts of things that kids his age shouldn't be concerned about...I am sure that will be a frequent subject on this blog. I guess I should refer to him from here on out as "Plato," since he is such a deep thinker.

My daughter is in daycare full time. She is of course beautiful, I imagine she will turn out brilliant as well. For now she is egocentric and determined. I will refer to her as "The Boss", because that is what she says she will be when she grows up.

I work full time as a nurse in a cardiac electrophysiology lab. For those of you who might say, "huh?" I would explain that I help perform procedures on patients who have heart rhythm problems. Pacemakers, ablations, etc. It's fast-paced, high-tech, and has a huge learning curve, which suits me just fine. I get bored easily if I am not challenged.

I am married, have been for almost 11 years. My husband and I have had our ups and downs, but have managed to stay together through it all. He is a good husband and father. He works for a university in the financial aid office listening to students whine about their money problems with an iPod in one hand, a Starbuck's Frappuccino in the other, and a cell phone blaring custom ringtones every 30 seconds. I don't know how he does it; I would probably be suicidal. His major (translate: expensive) hobby is offroading our 2005 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. I'll get to that more later. I will call him JeepMan.

As for me, he likes to call me G-Money, since my first name starts with G. I'll abbreviate that as G$. I am on my lunch break (they give me a WHOLE half hour, woo hoo!), so I gotta go for now. Hopefully I can keep up with this blog better than I do with the kids' baby books.
