I decided to start a blog because, as anyone who knows me knows, I have LOTS of opinions about LOTS of things! I am ready to share them all, with you. Aren't you lucky??
ALL ABOUT ME
I am a stay at home mom (but looking desperately for a job). I have three kids: Meghan (almost 13), Brendan (10) and Katie (3). I live in Connecticut but I was born and raised on Long Island, N.Y. My heart is still there, along with all of my family, but Connecticut is definitely a much nicer place to raise my kids.
I graduated from Holy Trinity High School in Hicksville, N.Y. in 1989. I went directly to New York Institute of Technology where I received a bachelor's degree in Art Eduction and a master's degree in Elementary Education. Sad to say, I have put neither to good use.
I realized after I graduated and started teaching that teaching was just not for me. So, that left me pretty much at square one. I was an art director for a summer camp for one year. I worked as a medical receptionist (during college) and worked as a medical transcriptionist for 12 years, from home, while raising my kids. I worked briefly teaching basic computer classes to seniors in an Adult Education program and that has been, so far, my favorite job. I had a baby and that job, unfortunately, was no longer conducive to my life. Most recently I worked as an enumerator for the 2010 census and I had a BLAST! Loved it!
I have thought, for years now, that I would love to get into publishing. I love to find typo's in newspapers, magazines and pamphlets. I am forever correcting grammar and spelling. What can I say? It makes me happy. I would be an awesome proofreader (with that being said, I am sure there will be 100's of mistakes on this blog - LOL)!.
So, that's me in a nutshell. I am a modern mom. Three very busy kids. Searching for a career. Voicing my opinion whenever I can. Trying to survive in this crazy world!
