About me

Occupation Registered Nurse, and part-time maker of beautiful things
Location Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
Introduction I love playing with my kids, learning new things and snowy days when I have nothing to do. On the outside I appear to be highly organized and proficient - but this is an illusion. I'm actually very laid back and perhaps pathologically slack and easy-going. I have a somewhat unfortunate sense of humor that often confuses people outside of my immediate family and close friends. I frequently don't make much sense and am perpetually disappointed in other people's inability to understand me. What do you think of the word foibles? Please try and keep up...
