On an average day these are my job titles: nurse, mommy, wife, pharmacist, housekeeper, dog walker, marathon runner, chef, baker, student, teacher, chauffeur, therapist, daughter, sister, aunt, advocate, crazy person, and many, many more.
See my 1 year old son, Owen, was born with 5 different congenital heart defects, causing his heart to be too small on one side.(That is a whole different story, read it here: www.owenscloud.blogspot.com) What does that mean? He is living with half a heart. Yep, my life is straight up stress. We are talking more stressful than being locked in a cage wearing Lady Gaga's meat dress with 5 starving tigers. One thing that has helped me relieve some of the everyday stress is to be a straight up homemaker.
Before Owen was born, I was working at least a 40 hour work week, but because of his heart defects, I am now a stay at home mom and my husband works a lot. Owen can't be in daycare, so I run our household (and my photography business) in all my newly-found free time. I have always loved cooking, but since Owen was born, I have delved into areas of the culinary world I never would have tread before. (Thank you Food Network!)
Join me in my adventures and bear with me, as it is bound to get a little crazy!
