Our Regularly Scheduled Program
I struggle, like most (women?), to define myself here. What words should I use? I am a daughter, sister, wife, mother, and friend. I have been a student for decades, and hope that, on some level, I always will be. I am a Nutritional Epidemiologist want-to-be self-employed-nutrition-expert/writer/promoter of all things that strike my fancy (but that doesn’t pay the bills…yet). I like cooking, but really like grocery shopping. I used to love when I planned our meals just right so the cilantro from last night’s Black Bean soup could be used in today’s Wild Rice salad, but then i had a second child and that just doesn’t get me jazzed up like it used to. I am at peace wandering through a farmers’ market, and wish that more people had an opportunity to feel that way [at peace and wander through a farmers’ market].
I love the smell of fresh cut grass, SCUBA diving, red wine, and dark chocolate. I hate mosquito bites, but love scratching them. I have five books on my nightstand but none of them are more than 2/3 of the way completed. In high school I played field hockey because it was fun (not because I was an athlete), and only recently understood how running could be “my time to think.” Now, I hate going a day without it. I have a terrible memory for musicians, but I could, single handedly, recite nearly every episode of Arrested Development.
