For years, people have told me that I should write a blog. Apparently I sound like a blogger. Whatever that means! So here I am. Not that I know what I'm doing... I guess I'll just introduce myself and those that I will be writing about the most and try to figure it out from there.
I am a wife and stay at home mom. Note that I did not say "housewife." I am not here to keep a perfect house! I'm here at home to take care of my kids. On my more cynical days, I have been known to refer to myself as a medical manager. Whose care I manage changes from day to day and even from minute to minute. My children, Overachiever #1 and Overachiever #2, are regulars in too many doctors' offices to count. Their cuteness makes the nurses fall for them. The doctors are impressed by the way that they can turn something like simple ear infections into an entire afternoon of phone calls to to identify and locate a safe antiobiotic for the children who are allergic to everything that was ever alive. And don't get me started on the drama of peeing in a cup! My husband, who recently revealed himself to be a conspiracy theorist -- like 5 minutes ago when I started writing -- shall be known as the Big Overachiever. He is typically an unwilling patient and is, in that respect, a very bad influence on the previously mentioned Overachievers. I rarely provide myself with services that would be classified medical management -- not because I don't need them but because I am a typical mom in that I do not always practice what I preach. While I would love to talk about something other than my Overachieving Bunch, that's kind of my life right now. So until my life changes -- probably when my little Overachievers have what I hope will be little Underachievers -- I guess my writing will focus on overachieving and all that goes with it.
