I am the PROUD Mom of four grown son’s and blessed to be called Nana by my beautiful granddaughter. I am excited to be a Nana again soon, as my son is expecting again in April 2020. I am also Cat Mom to Sunny and Stormy, also known as “The Weather Boyz”. They even have their own Instagram page. Little Leo is the newest member of my kitty tribe. >^..^<
I am originally from Massachusetts, growing up in Lynn. Yes, “Lynn, Lynn. The City of Sin…” Lynn is famous for its “Fluff” and the sandwich the “Fluffanuttah”. I spent much of my teen years, playing on the beaches of Lynn, Swampscott and Nahant. Great memories. I miss the beach and the pretty falls there…but not the winter’s. Brrr. I moved to Ohio in February of 1990 and have spent more than half of my life there.
Aside from getting married and becoming a mother, I aspired to better myself. I wanted to do something that would allow me to be able to help others, so I was drawn to Nursing. With all my education and training, I first became a Certified Phlebotomist Tech in 2003, a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) in 2004 and then a Registered Nurse (RN) in 2012. As for my college education, I have an Associates Degree in Nursing and I am only one five week class away from having my Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing (BSN) completed.
In July of 2012, I had completed training with the Ohio Advocate Network and became a Registered Advocate (RA) which allowed me to help serve those victimized by crimes such as domestic violence. This allowed me to volunteer my time with my local domestic violence program and shelter. I was also taking training’s and volunteering with my local county chapter of the Red Cross. I was part on their Disaster Action Team (DAT) responding to local crisis, and assisting with local blood drives.
My intent for this blog is to share my life, family and the crazy adventures that I have with my youngest son “Chunky” (his chosen nickname) as he and I travel around the United States with our fur-kid’s (including his cat Tarbaby). They NEVER fail to keep US entertained.
I thank you for checking my page out and I hope you come along for the ride. =^..^=
