Good Morning – My Family and a Little about Me

Hi it’s me Nancy. I can’t believe it’s only 112 days away from Christmas. More importantly there is only 48 more days until “The Walking Dead” season 8 starts.  Where did the year go already? What am I going to get everyone in my family.  It went by so fast and no matter how many times I tried to slow it down it didn’t cooperate.

Family

I’m a Walking Dead Fan

I have already started making plans for Christmas and time off for the holidays. My amazing son is going to spend a few days with his Aunt Sissy. My boyfriend and I are going to drop him off on the way to see his mother and then pick him up on the way back home. I think it’s a pretty great way to kill 2 birds with 1 stone.

My Family

Well let me tell you about me today. I turned 50 this year and I don’t look a day over 40  (LMAO) thankfully I do have great genes. Lets where should I start.  I grew up in a military family traveling all my childhood to Germany and back to the United States with my parents and sister. My amazing parents have been married for 51 years and  they have supported me in all my decisions. They have always been there for me and my son. I’m very lucky.

My mother is German and I have some amazing stories she has told me that I will be blogging about here on my site. She is one of the strongest women I know and without her I don’t believe I would be whee I am today. She is my mentor in life and my best friend.

My son is 12 years old and in the 7th grade. He thinks he knows everything and tries to prove it everyday. He loves to play WoW (World of Warcraft). I will certainly be blogging about him and his antics which happen daily.

I also have a great sister who lives about 4 hours from us that will do anything for me and my son as well. My family will be part of my blogging because I’m always going around shaking my head “Really?”.

I have an amazing boyfriend who is supportive and wonderful. I will talk about him in blogs later especially how we met , our great dates and our wonderful vacations. I’m always doing crazy weird things that make him laugh.

Parts of My Life

I have been married twice. The first marriage lasted 7 years and he was a very abusive guy so I’m lucky to be alive. The second marriage lasted 17 years and we both grew apart so it ended amicably or at least I think it did.

I’ve been a nurse for over 20 years and I have some stories to tell you about those experiences. I was a pediatric nurse for 15 years, then a nurse working for IT for 5 years, and now I’m a peritoneal dialysis nurse. It’s an amazing profession and I plan blogging about this a lot. I believe there are lots of new and old nurses out there that want to read funny stories about nursing.

Little More About My Son Today

My son is a swimmer and has been on a city league competing in swim competitions since he was 4 years ole. He is an amazing swimmer but he doesn’t like swimming. I’ve told him I didn’t care if he liked it or not he has to go because it is his exercise. He keeps telling me he’s going to quit when he’s in high school and again I tell him NOPE. You can quit when you’re in college.

In my opinion he would rather sit on the couch and play video games than move. I’ve asked him if he has any other sport he would like to try and he has said not really. You see when he was little we tried different sports with him and none really stuck out that he enjoyed.

Gotta go for now.  Blog more tomorrow.
