Who Am I?

My name is Laura and our family resides up in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I've been married for almost 5 years although, we lived in sin for about three years before that..shame on us :) We are so lucky to have been blessed by our son about 2 1/2 years ago....I just can't imagine my life without him. We have a bit of an unorthodox living situation. See, my husband is a long haul truck driver which can leave a heavy weight on my shoulders to keep the house running properly. I'm a stay at home mommy to a wonderfully sweet little boy and can't imagine doing anything else. My life can sometimes be a bit chaotic, but then on some days, it's amazingly calm. As a wife of a truck driver you have to be extremely adaptable because in this industry, you never know what each day will bring. He might be on his way home for a few days off, only be told to turn around and pick up the next load in the neighboring state. This can be incredibly challenging for a planner like myself and 5 years into it, I'm still trying to figure it all out.
I 'm a tv addict, my dvr is my new best friend. I revel in watching reality tv to know that there are people out there even crazier than us. Our family loves sporting events, we often hit up football and baseball games, we've even bought tickets to the 2010 Winter Olympics and I'm so excited to cross off one of my "to do's" off my long list of things to do before I croak. We enjoy fishing, traveling, and just spending time with each other and our extended family (even though we don't see them as often as we'd like.)
I'm new to the blogging world and so far I'm loving it. I would love to hear from other bloggers as we all share our unique but similar stories in this cyber world.
