Introductions are in order...

Hello!  I decided to start a new blog, one that I will keep up on. 

    I have 2 children, 12yr old boy Cole and 21 month old girl Kaylan.  I live with my daughter's father who is a SAHD who loves his XBox 360 (and his daughter of course).  Having raised my son myself, it is quite amazing to see how well he takes care of her.

   My son has issues in school and we will be trying online schooling next year.  We are currently working on cleaning and organizing his room so we can pack and move this spring. He is bright and unique and has a fascinating perspective on the world.   

My daughter has a speech delay, (as in NO words yet) but nothing apparently "wrong" with her.  So we are using ASL to communicate.  I always wanted to learn ASL :)  I'm really hoping after she starts talking she'll keep signing!  For now, she loves it. 

I'm 100lbs over weight and continually struggle.  I've been overweight my whole life, or so I thought anyway.  Looking back, I wasn't all that bad.  Now though, I can no longer say "at least I'm not THAT fat".  And yet, I can only stay consistent for a few weeks. 

I work as a Scientist in a Pharmaceutical company in Wisconsin. I've been there 5 and a half years and it has its ups and downs but I can honestly say I don't believe I could ever find a better job/company to work for.

Well that's all for now.



  1. Now I can properly stalk you! ;)

    I finished my last semester of high school online and I enjoyed it! I hope Cole does well. It was kind of hard to stay motivated but at the same time, easier because I didn't have to sit through class and listen when my learning style is way different than the teacher's!!!

  2. LOL It would be an honor for you to stalk me ;)

    I hope so too, we are mainly doing it so he can't get out of homework by saying he forgot it and any other number of excuses...
