Who am I?
I am a wife & mother. I write with ampersands. I believe that people can change for the better. I like to attention-whore out my life, invent curse words, & devour a plate of chocolate chip cookies in a single sitting. I also have a habit of spilling coffee all over myself at inopportune moments. I work outside of the home full time for an analytics software company & spend my evenings curled up with a good book & whisky, tapping out words from my heart.
I’ve been married to a devilishly handsome man for over six years. His name is Doug. Together we made a wild, persistent, incredible little boy. His name is Harrison, or Harry, or Hibby.
I tell him that golf is not an indoor sport & fruit snacks are not supper. He disagrees. My mother tells me that there is never an excuse to use the four-letter f-bomb. I disagree.
The first time I was pregnant, I lost my baby at 12 weeks. Miscarriage is unfair, a gut-wrenching cruelty. I had an incredible second pregnancy, but I had severe postpartum depression after the birth of my son. It was a terrifying time in my life. I’m better now through modern chemistry.
Sometimes I’m funny & I talk about vaginas. Sometimes I get sad & talk about Zoloft & therapy. A lot of times I’m just a ball of random life. This is the place where I pour out every essence of me to the universe.
I am so glad you are here. I hope you brought wine.
