My Life

I started blogging because it was the cool thing to do, and because I like to write. I have no delusions about many people really being all that interested in the mundane details of my life, but there are a few that really do like to keep up with us and this is a good way to achieve that.

I have lived in Texas for most of my life – only a couple of years in Alabama, and that only served to teach me that I never really want to leave Texas again. I graduated from Garland High School and went on to graduate from the University of Texas at Dallas with a B.A. in Psychology. After completing that degree I decided that I had enough problems without sitting and listening to other people’s problems for a living, so I did not pursue the higher level degree that would have been required to actually be a psychologist.

I married a wonderful man, known as Party Boy on this here blog, in January of 1999. I got a “real job” around that same time at a not-for-profit that turned out to be a life-sucking abyss from which I barely escaped a few years later.

My oldest daughter, Mouth of the South (MOTS for short), was born in January 2000. She is a joy to be around.

I left the life sucking abyss of a job in early 2002 while I was pregnant with my second daughter, Hollywood. She was born in May 2002. Unfortunately the job that I got while I was pregnant with her only lasted a year, as it was in the tech industry and was pretty hard hit by the 2001 recession (I think I survived at least 6 rounds of lay-offs before finally getting the boot).

I quickly found another job, also in the tech industry – not doing anything technical – I was strictly administrative. That job lasted about 6 months before I was laid off again. I finally took the hint and quit working outside the house for good in late 2003.

In 2004 I started a home daycare, where I cared for the kids of my very closest friends for 3 wonderful years. That ended in the summer of 2007 because I was expecting my third little one, now known as Captain Chaos, in October.

Things are bumping along nicely here on the home front. I still struggle with laundry, ironing, and a dreadful addiction to Facebook. I just take it one day at a time.
