My name is Rebecca.I’m a 37 year old, married, mother of one. I’m a Registered Nurse by trade, and a junker, DIYer, recipe inventor on the side.
I’m married to Jeff, who is often the “man power” behind many of my projects, or schemes, as he likes to call them. I’m Mother to Chandler, my funny, quick witted, and strong willed 8 year old. He is our world, and our daily entertainment!
So here are some things you should know about me, at my day job as a Care Coordinator at a local Hospital, I am organized, calm, and task driven. At home, on the other hand, I possess none of those qualities! I’ve been known to search for my keys while they are in my hand, once while looking for my cell phone, I said out loud, “I need to find my phone, so I can call it!”
I usually have several half done projects at any given time. I get very excited about my ideas. One week I will talk nonstop about wanting to build a wedding barn, the next week I may be buying a jewelry stamping kit online. My problem is having too many ideas, too many hobbies I want to pursue, and not enough time!
With more birthdays usually comes the gift of better self realization. So now at 37, I am completely aware of my tendencies to get a little too excited, and be a bit too impulsive over my current idea. Evidence of this could be found in multiple stories and purchases. Such as the calligraphy kit that was used once, the large bag of remnant leather sitting in the back of my closet, unopened packages of beads and stones for jewelry making, the list could go on and on. My dear Mother once wrote a poem for my birthday, highlighting an adventure I went on one day in search of a pressure cooker. The day the poem was read, months later, the pressure cooker had never been taken out of the box.
That is me! Scattered, impulsive, maybe a bit crazy, and somewhat dramatic. So if you are looking for a blog to follow by someone who has it all together, this is not it! I am not that girl! I am however, what I think a lot of us are, a work in progress! I strive to be better than I was yesterday, I pray to be the vessel that God wants me to be, and I continue to attempt to master the art of balance of this thing we call life!
