I am a military bride, who writes about navigating through the fog of raising kids with cochlear implants and other things from the heart. I have discovered that there is no such thing as “typical” and prefer square pegs.
Unrelated but not irrelevant…
I have a degree in journalism and in second grade wrote my first short story about a walking/talking sponge (Can you say: “I was robbed?” Hello, SPONGEBOB); I’ve been an exercise instructor since my teen years (Flashdance sweatshirts, leg warmers, and vinyl records to prove it); and may have been an extra on the vintage 90’s hit, Beverly Hills 90210 (proof still found on VHS tapes).
I experienced hypothermia in my first marathon at mile 25.5, but went on to kick ass the next six times I toed the line; A lifetime ago, I cut hair on Melrose Avenue; and I am still besties with my two closest pals from elementary school, who encouraged (bullied) me to share my story.
This is my journey. I hope it provides a sliver of inspiration for anyone who is entering or in the midst of a fog.
