About me

Industry Non-Profit
Occupation Stay at Home Mom
Location Richmond, VA
Introduction I'm a mother of 3 kids, and I stayed at home until they all went to school. A few years ago I decided to go back to college so that I can have a job I actually want instead of a job that I'm "stuck with" due to lack of skills. Now I'm a nurse, working full time, and I love it. I like to write. I find peace when I draw. I meditate during my swim. I enjoy my ride. I love my run. A freaking lot. (Like a heroin addict loves H.) I have run a lot of races, and while I'm super proud of the marathon that I finished in Dec '11, I'm equally proud of the 5K I finished in April of '08. I grew up in Virginia Beach, and people always act like that's a big deal. "Wow, that must have been great". No, not really. It's not like I lived on the beach. I did try surfing once, but only once. Fortunately my nose wasn't broken... ~Savor the Run~

When your science teacher smashed a frozen rose with a hammer, did you warm the petals to bring them back to life?

Oceanography teachers don't smash frozen roses, they smash other things that smell much worse.
