Where I Live: Northeast Ohio. Some people want to grow up and get the heck out of here but I am loving living on the same street that I've lived on since birth. I have a unique situation; there are now 4 generations of us living on this street! My husband's family lives less than 10 miles from here too so my son is surrounded by family all the time. It is a good thing too because he loves his grandmas more than he loves his parents. :)
Where I Work: I am currently on "Child Care Leave" from my job as a high school math teacher at the school both my parents and I attended. I love teaching there but it will be really hard going back after being at home for 2 years! If only I could make more money growing pumpkins....
Sports: I did gymnastics from age 6-18 so that was a HUGE part of my life and I consider that sport my #1 love. I ran track in high school but hated distance so I find it ironic I ended up coaching cross country when I got my teaching job! I love other things too that help me stay fit: biking, hiking, mountain climbing, cross country skiing, and free weights.
Gardening: I grew up helping my grandparents all day everyday on their farm (I "ran away" to their house next door when I got mad at my mom, which was pretty much all the time since I was so moody). Luckily I married a guy who was even more nuts about that outdoor stuff than I am so it is neat seeing what we can do together. We don't own much property (less than 1 acre) so we mooch land off the family for our monsterous garden and pumpkin patch.
Children: One son born July 2010. I was so scared of pregnancy I wanted to possibly not have kids. Now that Blaine is in my life, I know all my fears were so irrational and stupid. He is the best! Things that I'm enjoying: snuggling, giggling, breastfeeding, and elimination communication.
