I am boring
I guess I probably need some kind of bio post on here, eh? Like I am not freaking Beyoncé, so you probably don't know who I am. I am just a normal boring nurse mom that writes when she gets stressed. Which in 2020 pretty much became All of the Time. So then I end up with a book. And then you have to write about your writing to sell said book. So here we are.
I am loud and silly and have opinions about everything except politics. Wait I do have an opinion about politics - I hate politics. I love caffeine and ice cream and swear words and drawing with my kids. I love singing really loud in church and the feeling of my feet in the dirt. I love Harry Potter and Outlander and have a long-ass list of books to read when I finally graduate from grad school and am done reading Shit I Don't Wanna Read like textbooks. I never want to write anything in APA format ever again. I never want to write anything that I cannot say Fuck in ever again - except maybe a children's book. I mean, probably have to lay off the fucks in a children's book.
That is what I really thought I would write someday. Some cute clever children's book with cute illustrations and that left you all warm and fuzzy at the end. Instead I write a dark-humored memoir of faith and profanity and absolutely not enough warm fuzzies. Isn't life weird??
I have two Littles - an eight-year-old girl and a five-year-old boy. They are straight-up savage and hilarious and awesome. They are good for my soul and so much fun. But also tiring and anxiety-producing and sometimes make me crazy. I think that is what motherhood is, really. Hard and beautiful and heartbreaking and awe-inducing and awesome. All the feels. I write a lot about them, simply because I like to remember all of the funny things they say. And someday they will be teenagers and think I suck, so I like to document the good shit.
I have been a nurse like a billion years. Okay it feels like that but not really. I think only fifteen. But nursing, like my children, is also hard and beautiful and heartbreaking and awe-inducing and awesome. So maybe that kind of thing is just my jam. But I love it all. So that is me - I am just this nurse mom.
