Life is a series of interesting events and now it is much slower for me. I have an uncooperative brain.

I face some pretty interesting hurdles after three four brain surgeries, but I do not let those hurdles dictate my happiness. It is a major inconvenience, although it has taught me a lot about myself. I blog because writing is cathartic and an outlet. I also hope that people who read may understand a little more about illnesses that are not always visible.

Wife. Mother to girls 10 years apart. I own a slightly neurotic dog, Sophie. My cats Bumper and Beatrice own me (and are likely the cause of the dog’s neurosis).

I’m a coffee snob. I believe chocolate is a food group.

I’m trying to balance daily life and everything on my plate. I laugh a lot, and mostly at myself.
