And so it begins. Perhaps I should begin with a little bit about myself. My name is Rachel and I am a married, 37 year old mom to a 2 3/4 year old boy Jacob, who sometimes channels Mussolini. I work full time as project manager for a lighting company in Dallas...which is just a fancy way of saying that I sell lighting and associated products, you know light bulbs, dimmers, yada, yada, yada.
Working full time I find I don't have a lot of time to connect with people outside of work and home. My commute is about an hour each way so by the time I'm home it's time for dinner then bedtime for my boy. Living in the metroplex my friends are scattered and busy with their own families. I figure there are tons of people who are similar to me. After being a loner for many years I find myself wanting connections.
Well, what else can I tell you? I love to read, mostly mysteries but I've been expanding my repertoire since rediscovering the joy of free books from the library. I love to hang out with my son and husband. I harbor fantasies of a large vegetable/herb garden, I have a small herb garden this year, and I'm currently cultivating a decent Farmville Farm on Facebook. I enjoy television but seem to have little time for it. I do try to catch my favorites like Top Chef when I can.
I guess that's an okay start to my blog. Granted it's nothing stellar but you have to start somewhere right?
