Ever try to describe yourself and never know where to start? Let’s start with some standard labels: mom, wife, daughter, sister, sister-in-law, employee, coworker, assistant coach, dog mom, cat mom, friend, acquaintance, neighbor, stubborn, and that should be a good start for now. I’m a born and raised Vermonter with no plans of leaving anytime soon. I have a burly husband, two beautiful children, three dogs, two cats and a property in the woods. I have no experience with writing, but I know how to change a diaper, clean the litter box and pick up various kinds of poop and vomit with a smile on my face (sometimes, okay maybe not).

I often have conversations with people over similar life frustrations, and it’s important to know, you’re not alone. Whether it’s pet troubles, roommate irritations, or general emotions, you’re not alone. Life is full of irritations and annoyances (I’m often one of them), but we’ll all get through it with a great story to tell afterwards.
