(Edit: So. I forgot to publish my posts this week. Here they are! )
I am so sorry for the lack of posts this week. I have to do some over time at work and it was unexpected so I hadn’t really planned ahead. I will try to make it up to you. While I was thinking about this, I realized that I should let you all know a little bit about myself, so you have a better understanding of how crazy I really am.
Home/ Personal Life
I am 28 and have been living in Portland, Oregon with my 4 year old daughter, Olivia/Mini Me and my husband, Mr. Chaos for the last 6.5 years. I met my husband online and moved out to Portland from Milwaukee, Wisconsin to be with him.
I am Puerto Rican, have 3 siblings, an insane number of cousins, aunts, uncles nieces and nephews. I grew up in Wisconsin, and don’t really have a Hispanic accent. My husband is not Hispanic, which makes our marriage entertaining to say the least. He is an only child with minimal extended family. Sometimes he doesn’t understand why I talk to so loud, but when you grew up trying to get a word in edgewise among tons of other loud people, you kind of have to be loud.
We are nerds. I am struggling with balancing a cute, neat home with my husbands “collectibles”. I am a total anglophile and am saving up to go to London for my 30th birthday.
I work full time for a healthcare system in their hospital billing department. I just started this position in November, after being with my last employer for almost 5 years.
I also am considered a full time college student. I am in a accelerated program, where you take one class, Monday nights for 5 weeks and earn 3 semester credits. This is year round (give or take a few weeks off here and there) and while I only go to class one night a week, I have about a semesters worth of papers, reading, homework and group projects to cram into that time. I am just finishing my first year and am working towards a end of 2015 graduation date.
Somehow in between all of this, I find time to hang out with friends, do things with my daughter, shop and watch way too much UK TV.
I hope this gives you an idea of what I am doing in my life. i am not 100% how I do it all, but I will let you know as soon as I do.
I will be back up to regular posts this weekend.
Thanks for your patience,
