Day 1: The Story of My Life In 250 Words or Less
So, while reading through the list of blogs I follow, I stumbled upon Jenni at Story of My Life. She issued a challenge to bloggers to blog every day in May. If you want to participate, go HERE for a complete list of daily prompts.
So, I was born in Searcy, Arkansas in 1971. (Yeah, I'll be 42 on the 7th.) I went to elementary and high school in a tiny community outside of Searcy. There were 8 kids in my graduating class. I was the only girl. That's a whole other story.
I went to college at Williams Baptist College in Walnut Ridge, Arkansas. I received my B.S. in Psychology with an emphasis in counseling. I moved to Abilene Texas where I began graduate school at Hardin-Simmons University. I didn't finish. Wish I had.
Moved back to Arkansas, got married to my college sweetheart. Got divorced. Very sad time.
I have worked at Wal-Mart, an office and school supply store, 2 battered women's shelters, a foster family agency, 2 hospitals, a dialysis clinic, and a non-profit community services clinic.
I met Mike and we moved to California where we I lived in Kelseyville for five years. I was a social worker for a foster family agency. I worked with foster children and certified foster homes. I got pregnant in 2009 and had our son Jaxon on 11/24/09.
We moved back to Arkansas to take care of my parents. I worked at my uncle's wholesale florist until I got my job as a caseworker for juvenile delinquents. So now I work with kids involved with the court. I manage community service, install ankle monitors and help kids getting out of youth prison.
My son is 3 1/2, we live out in the country. When I have time I love to craft, DIY and cook. I'm pretty sure I went over 250 words!
Thanks for stopping by,
