A new feature on our team blog is a Community Monday Meet Up. A fun way of getting to know the person behind the art.
1 - Are you a night owl or early bird?
2 - Share one thing on your bucket list.
3 - What’s your favorite thing about yourself?
I am a night owl all the way. Think I have always been one. I loathe mornings and especially getting up early. I left the corporate world in 2005, and have been a stay at home wife/mom since. Each time I think of going back to work, I remember those 5am mornings and how much I hated it. I am not looking forward to the school years with my children just due to those early mornings. I even made my daughter into a night owl since I could not function with her waking up at 6-7am, especially when she no longer napped.
One thing on my bucket list.... visit Scotland. I wouldn't mind living there for a little while. I miss living overseas, and hope that we will be making our way back over there somewhere in the next 5 years. Secretly, I am hoping my husband opts to apply for the Marine Security Guard program as a Det. Cmdr. this summer so we can spend the last 2 active duty years in the Marines overseas.
Favorite thing about myself.... That is a hard one. I guess my inner strength. At least most times. At 17, I moved 4 hours away from the only home I ever knew to attend college. When I had to leave school 2 years later for financial reasons, I took a full time job and got my first own apartment. I was very successful in that job and 3 years later I obtained a job that is very difficult to even get an interview let alone hired. I toured foreign countries on my own without any fear. I faced difficult surgeries with minimal fear and hesitation. And I dealt with my latest pregnancy without my husband around, I delivered our son, dealt with his 8 day nicu stay, his feeding/weight issues on my own with little breakdowns or complaining. Though the days of not complaining are coming to an end. 6 months without my husband has worn my patience thin, and we still have 8 months left on this tour....
