Hmm….that’s an excellent question. I wish I knew the answer. The short answer, I’m a SAHM to 3 beautiful girls (I’m not being biased, they really are beautiful) and the wife of an amazing man who actually loves me despite knowing me so well. Can you imagine??
All of my girls are now in school so the main reason I’m home instead of back in the working world is a daily drug that I’m taking for a cancer called gastrointestinal stromal tumor. It makes me feel like I’ve been run over by a bus but it also keeps me alive so it’s worth the tread marks.
In this chaotic world where I’m most frequently known by my relationship to somebody else or my illness – his wife, their mom, GIST patient – I’m trying to get “unlost” and figure out who I am all over again. There’s something about a life threatening illness that makes you reexamine where you’ve been and where you’re going. It changes your perspective and makes you wonder if you’ve done enough and how you’ll be remembered. I’ll probably write about that but mostly it will be about the people I love because right now, continuing to be here for them is my main job. I’m also kind of a smart ass so I need a place to mouth off instead of subjecting my poor husband to my witty repertoire all the time.
This is the 1st post explaining WHY I’m here if who I am didn’t answer your question.
Thanks for stopping by!
