It's a Tuesday afternoon, about 5:15 central time, and I've decided to start a blog because I have nothing else to do.
Yes I do. I could be working, or playing with my daughter, or reading other blogs...
This blog is going to be about my life in Houston, the challenges with trying to become more observant, the fun that is parenting, and the joy that just comes from the stuff of life.
A few things about me:
I am currently a consultant with a major firm. Normally this would entail much traveling and onsite client work, but my pregnancy and subsequent child have put a damper on that. I enjoy my work but I enjoy living at home (rather than in a hotel) even more. I hope to continue my current job as long as I can, and then afterwards, we will see what doors will open.
I live here with my parents and sibling all within 2 miles of me. It gives me immense joy to see my daughter interact with her grandparents and cousins on a weekly, if not more frequently, basis. That is something I wasn't able to experience, and this is why we moved back here, so that she would grow up surrounded by her family. I was born and bred here, so I guess you couldn't take the Texan out of me.
My life so far hasn't exactly gone according to plan, but I love it. I have learned to just roll with it and take the best option available. Things usually turn out better than you expect them to.
