For a few extra things about me…
Update August 2012
If you are curious about me, and the incredibly boring details about my life, here is my little “spill all.”
I am a stay at home mom. I am middle class all the way.
I have two kids and a husband. My day starts at 5am and I am on a straight run until 11pm on a slow day. I have spent the past 13yrs of my life as a volunteer with both my kids and part of that time as a volunteer for the Hospice Organization. My daughter is 9 (10 in January). My son is 13. He has down syndrome and is NOT high functioning. He is also hearing impaired in his right ear. He had a tumor in his inner ear that destroyed his cochlear and his auditory bones. He has had a total of 7 surgeries in that ear, most to repair the damage. His auditory bones were replaced with artificial ones, but because the cochlear was so damaged the artificial bones are of no help. He does not speak but he does understand most of what people say to him. He can hear out of his left ear… however all the hearing tests have been inconclusive as to exactly how much hearing he has. Its complicated.
I am biased but my kids ARE totally AWESOME! I am very fortunate to have such wonderful children. My daughter is a very sweet little girl who cares too much about the world. That might sound awful for me to say, but some children worry a little too much about things they have no control over. She has wanted to be an Archaeologist since she was two. Sounds crazy, but she has never altered what she has wanted to become as an adult. She is just that kind of person. I am fascinated with the way her mind thinks. I think its strange to have a child that has made a life decision at such an early age. I am not a pressing parent, so if she wants to change her plans as she goes I have zero issues with that. For now I look at it as a blessing that she has a path she can follow.
I am a Christian, even though I don’t necessarily like to talk about it to most people. I do not enjoy arguments but I do enjoy reading them. I may not par take in a lot of conversations with other people, but I do enjoy their blogs… I may seem absent from my blog at times, that is only because I am very busy most days. This is the second blog I have, the first one is on blogspot and it is called “Crafty KT” I pretty much abandoned that blog because of an argument that I had on it with a woman in my kids school. I am not proud of the argument or how I handled my frustration… Looking back I feel as though I was more of a bitchy hen instead of ever having gotten my point across. However I do still stand Firmly on my side of the argument and still have a hard time accepting and dealing with people who care nothing for other peoples safety. I have no other blogs. I barley have enough time for this one.
One thing you’ll notice about me is that I do not claim to be a photographer. The big reason for that is because I AM NOT a photographer. I hate it when people say, “Oh, you said you were a photographer blah, blah, blah.” Yeah, NO I DIDN’T. Its frustrating to have people putting words in your mouth. I do photography, I do stock photography, I make no claims in being a photographer. I also do a lot of crafts. I sew, I knit, I glue, I create. Just cause someone sews doesn’t mean they are a seamstress. I hate the association of that. A lot of the reason for it is because most photographers I’ve met, or at least people who claim to be photographers are A) Not at all photographers, not even close. and B) If they are actually photographers, they are rarely nice people. <– yes that sounds judgmental and mean, but it is what it is.
I do sell some of my work, I also do a lot of work for free. I work through several companies to sell my work. I still don't think that quailifies me as a photographer. Nor is it a ridiculus goal of mine. I am happy just being a simple stay at home mom.
Alrighty, if you'd like to know any more about me, feel free to drop a line. I'll try my best to answer.
