Hi! I’m Kathleen. I’m a 30-year-old wife and mother living just outside of Houston, Texas.
We struggled with infertility and miscarriage for two and a half years before giving birth to our daughter Meredith on July 20, 2011.
Our family does not yet feel complete but right now we are loving the heck out of our family of three (plus two dogs)!
I’m a working mom, which I have conflicted feelings about. I’m an oncology nurse at an outpatient infusion clinic and I find it extremely challenging and rewarding. But I do ache for the missing time with Meredith and, let’s be honest, for my other interests.
I also enjoy crafting. My first love is paper, but cross stitching is a close second. These days I keep up with Project Life (my favorite way of scrapbooking and the only one I’ve found that works for me) and fit other things in as I can.
My life is jam packed (with goodness!) and to make the most out of it I’ve become a planner, a list maker, and a goal setter. I try to live with intention, even if that means I intend to let the dishes pile up and eat way too many M&M’s just this one time.
Some other things I like are: sending and receiving cards, Jesus, the feeling after I’ve exercised, soccer, dark chocolate, pedicures, automatic sliding doors, using cruise control during short trips, the semi-colon, songs that tell a story, foaming hand soap, fat furry animals, tulips, maps, a good sneeze, and tragic characters.
I dislike: seafood, asymmetry, baths, cockroaches, moving, recklessly fast drivers, smoking, bad or cold weather, beeping noises, clutter, sputum, politics, and gambling.
