to update the About me page…don’t you think?
I’m a WAHM. (Work at home Mom-is there another kind?) I’ve been married to my best friend Scott (The Man) for the last thirteen years. We met in high school when I was 14 and he was much older. He used to pull my hair and practice Tae Kwan Do moves on me in Japanese class. I learned very little Japanese.
And yet our love survived.
We were married in 2000 (which makes it so easy to do the math-good thinking!) We waited till after high school to get married. And after the Navy, and College.
In 2002 we bought The Burrow, (because it is held together by magic, that’s why) it was built sometime in the twenties as a log cabin, sometime in the fifties they lifted it and put a basement on it, sometime in the eighties they built an addition (the right side). We have been in the process of fixing up said catastrophe (we LOVE this house) since before the ink was dry on the mortgage.
In 2003 we both started our Masters programs, and got pregnant (cuz we needed a little somethin extra-plus my six foot five husband looked cute in all his maternity clothes. Ruffles are the new….)
In 2004 our son, (Mr. Moo-were non traditional like that) was born. And we learned there was this whole other world outside of email and websites called the blogosphere. We moved in.
2005 was a down year, but I documented in online anyway!
2006 saw the addition of our second and last son (because my husband says so that is why, technically to be completely truthful what he said was, I could have as many babies as I wanted…ahem) Wah. I also completed my MSW in June of that year. Hurray.
2007 nothing…..but still online documenting it!
2008 Scott graduated from his Masters program and we both finally had jobs in on our field and no homework..and apparently two little boys! Crazy.
Through our years at the Burrow many animals came and went (sadly) but we documented it all! online!
In the Summer of 2012 My husband interviewed and was hired by a company in the Salt Lake City Area and rather abruptly our sleepy life in Southwest Washington was upended and we found ourselves in a flurry of packing and moving and saying goodbye to a place we never thought we would leave.
The week after Thanksgiving we packed up the Minivan with our children and three of our Menagerie (Calvin, Hobbes and Peter the bearded dragon) and drove the thirteen hours to Utah.
While we were sad to leave behind friends and family, we embraced our new adventure with open arms and have spent our time here reveling in the snow! and snowsports! and the hiking and the Sun! We are really enjoying our time here, and are looking forward to whatever comes next!
