So, you probably think at this point that I am ready to officially introduce”Doc”. It would seem logical, since we have partnered in producing this amazing brood of children. Every once in a while, I prefer to put logic aside. For right now, let’s suffice to say, that our lives have been intertwined for over 31 years and he is already part of everything I have had to say so far. Trust me, you will learn about him as we go, just as I have for the past 31 years.
There is someone very important to me, and to all of our family that you need to meet. She would like to be known as the “Ninja”. I will give her that one because of her immense involvement with Karate, but she is definitely not ninja around us. She is part and parcel of the whole package and a full member of the family whether she likes it or not. The “Ninja” has been around almost since we moved into the area which was in 1993. Personally, I do not know what I would do without her friendship and oh yes – constant technology assistance. She has kept me technologically viable in this century.
Outside of that, she knows our family better than anyone in the world. Her simple description of an evening at our house is “it is always dinner and a show”. By the way, that is a pretty accurate description of dinner time. The jokes role, the antics begin, my son falls off his chair after being warned if he rocks backwards again …. (use your imagination). Reality TV? There is nothing real about it. Dinner at our house – it doesn’t get more real than that. Ask the “Ninja”. We love her and plan to keep her with us for a long, long time, or forever – depending on which comes first.
Wife, Mother, Mother, Mother, Mother, Mother, Mother, Mother, Nurse, Grandmother, Friend...that's me in a nutshell!
