The first post on a new blog is like the first scratch on a new bike: somehow more painful than the many larger scrapes that follow. So, here it goes. KRRRRCH.
Hi! Welcome to my blog. I'm not really sure what it's about yet. My husband and family all blog and it seems like a lot of fun so I thought I would give it a try. I guess it will be about different things from my life: some serious, some not so serious, and some no where near serious.
I was looking for pictures of myself and my husband on our computer and all I could find were pictures of our dog, Linus. Here he is:
And this is him as a puppy:
Isn't he the cutest dog ever? Now you know why we have so many pictures of him and none of ourselves. And you can clearly understand how he also became the most spoiled and loved dog in the universe.
This is Ben, my wonderful, amazing, talented, sweet and darling husband. He writes young adult and children's literature.
His first book "The Boy Who Went Ape" was published in 2007 with Scholastic.
And then there's me. I'm a Registered Nurse and I work in the Emergency Department at a community hospital just outside of Victoria. It requires me to keep very strange hours and yet I love my job. I feel fortunate to be able to make a person's day a little bit better, even in the worst situations.
Me on my way to work.
(Note the bowl of KD and the awkward smile directed at Ben who is taking this photo even though I'm running late.)
The last BIGGIE is right here:
WOAH! It's huge and growing by the minute. I know! We're due May 25th, 2010. (Insert Jaws movie theme here). Needless to say, we're very excited to meet him/her.
So that is my life in 5 pictures and a few paragraphs. Thanks for stopping by and come again!
