I’m just your average Native American, small-city-livin’, single motherin’, IT techin’, sci-fi lovin’ woman who just so happens to love knittin’ and hockey.
I am an IT instructor. I did that for about 4 years, and it was awesome. Then I got to be an IT technician for a tribal council for a bit. Back at the grind. I loved my job, and I had a really great time. But then I got to return to teaching IT for the past year, which I love.
I live in the smallest “city” ever, and I’m learning to love it. I had to move from my reserve which was about 20km from where I was born in the nearest town to my reserve back when they still delivered babies at that hospital. They’ve since torn down that hospital and built a snazzy new medical centre. They didn’t even have the decency to put a plaque commemorating my birth there. I was highly insulted. ;)
The good news is, for almost 8 years, I got to raise my kids in the house I grew up in. It was all sorts of interesting. Although it didn’t make it easy to pretend I’m a grown up as I was constantly awash with memories of my childhood, it at least made it easy to stay young. It was also a bit trippy especially since the kids look so much like me and my brother. lol I can practically hear the Cylons quoting that line in Battlestar Galactica … “This has all happened before, and it will all happen again.” Creeeeeeeeeeepeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.
And just a little geeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeky. Hahahaa
Speaking of which … I have two kids: my daughter and my nephew. They are both intelligent, funny, charming, and beautiful children who make my life both a joy and a jumble. The kids are practically siblings, and everyone gets lots of love and hugs and kisses. It’s also a life of insanity and bliss. Mixed in with a good dose of laughter and yelling. :)
I also live with my sister. She’s all sorts of awesome and … well, she’s my little sister. We laugh, we argue, we watch a lot of tv. :P I’d say more about her, but I think she can speak for herself. She’s a smart cookie, and I don’t think she gives herself enough credit. Of all my sisters (I have four in all), we’re probably the least alike, and yet, we’re the closest.
We’ve all since moved into the aforementioned small city. We’re adjusting. :)
Yeah … it’s a pretty sweet life. <3
