Its nearly midnight here at work and its been pretty busy. I have enjoyed your comments and have a family who has 7 children, 4 adopted from Vietnam. Its been nice talking to them.
What to blog about? Whats on my mind?
I decided I would tell you a little bit about Amy, the blogger whom you are presently reading.
I am Amy, wife to Michael, owner ot 2 cats and Lucy the basset hound. I am a child of God. each day that I breathe, the more awesome He is. Its the stories I hear, the views outside. There is no way I can deny the creation. How Great is my God!!!! I am rereading the Bible and I am learning so much and I am just in Exodus. I am not trying to preach, just stating how I feel. I have been blessed far more than I deserve. I am not perfect. I try to impress people. I always feel like everyone is better than me. I also try to be humble. (Really)
I am a daughter and a sister of a younger sister and brother. I am a pediatric nurse in one of the best pediatric hospitals in the country. I work on a neuro/craniofacial floor. I take care of patients between the ages of 0-18 years that have/ need all kids of plastic surgeries (most because of a birth defect), things with the brain like seizures, tumors, meningitis, spinal cord things. shunts and all kinds of stuff. I love my job.
My hubby and I are adopting a baby girl from China. Her name is LynnMarie and she probably hasn't been conceived yet but greatly loved. Oh wait, you mean you knew that already? Haha!
I am obsessed with Christmas. This is not a joke. Wait and see. I love memories, I love telling stories of things I have experienced.
Lets see, I have moved about 19 times in my life. I have lived in Ga, FL,TN,Ms,Va,and SC. My childhood was wonderful. My dad was very frugal and I wish I was like him now. He was also very neat and organized and I did not inherit that trait. Dad was and is awesome. Mom spent a lot of time with us and was very involved in the church. Both of them did everything they could to make sure we were happy. More about my family and memories in another post. I went to high school in Plantation, Florida and then college at Union University in Jackson, Tn where I got my Psychology degree. It is in Jackson, that I learned about the Internet. I would spend hours in the library chatting online. It is also in Jackson that I refused to go to the cafeteria in college.Why? Because even though I lost 7 5 pounds in college, I was still afraid to eat in front of people. Yet I ate at restaurants all the time. I told you I was odd. Union is a place I will always treasure. I made lifelong friends and learned so much about myself. Even people I was just aquainted with have now become good friends. Who would have thought a small college would make a good topic of conversation but it does. Its amazing. I moved back home to Edgewater, Fl and got my nursing degree at DBCC. My first nursing job was with older people at Florida Hospital. Oh and while I was in nursing school, I learned about eBay and wasted a ton of money on "Christmas Collectibles". I was an addict.
During my first year as a nurse, I met my Michael online and met a few weeks later and then we were engaged a few weeks after that and then married a year later. On 9/11, we learned we were moving to Atlanta. What a day that was!
During our almost 6 years of marriage, we have moved into an apartment, bought a house, bought a dog, gained 3 nephews and one niece, attended Michael's grandfathers funeral, and have really learned a lot.
What do I like to? I love to anticipate Christmas. I love the fall, as that is the season we were married. I love to organize events and trips, although I am really not good at it. Some of my favorite trips have been on Disney cruises and I would love to go on another one. I dream of being domesticated. I made my first "good" "homestyled" meal last week. Perhaps there is hope for me.
I am a dreamer, a romantic. I watch movies and expect real life to be like it. I watched every episode of 90210. I am silly. I think about the future and what LynnMarie will be like. I cant wait to experience Christmas and Disney cruises through her eyes. Let me know if you have any questions
Well, I hope this lets you know the crazy blogger who you have been reading!
Have a good day!
Random thought, did I tell you I managed to get off both Thanksgiving and Christmas this year? I am so excited about that.. I am also hoping the family can come up.
Extra Credit...remember our guest blogger Steven? He is looking for captions for a picture on his blog so go give him some ideas. SO click here to help him out. If you are not creative like myself, just leave a comment somewhere. If you ever get bored, he has a great blogroll.
Amy . . .
What would you like to know? I am fun, but crazy. I have a most perfect husband, and 2 cats named Samson and Delilah. We are presently working on adopting a little girl from China and have a separate blog for that. I am a Christian and am working on a better relationship with him. I live in the Atlanta area and love sharing stories with people. I am also a pediatric nurse and I love it! I love to talk and meet new people and I love Disney Cruising
