I met my husband while taking a break from school in Columbia, MO, at MU. Soon after we met, I returned to school and graduated with my B.S. in Hotel-Restaurant Management. As he would say, I "drug" him to Kansas City after graduation. Being from Fulton, he was biased towards St. Louis. I worked as a dining room manager at the Kansas City Club in downtown KC. As we started talking about having a family, I realized the restaurant hours weren't going to work. I decided to go to grad school and worked towards a Masters in Human Resource Management. I left the club and went to work for Manpower to gain my first official HR experience. After we had our first daughter in August 2000, I wanted to be a full-time Mom. Luckily, we made it work, and I was blessed to be home for almost 7 years and another daughter in 2003. I finished my Masters the December before we had our second daughter. Pregnant and feeling sick mostly, to everyone's surprise, I was very happy and willing to settle for any passing grade at that point.
I wouldn't trade the time at home with our girls for the world. I have been back at work since May 2007. It has been a change for all of us but we are making it. I am very proud of my husband who went from a retail background to computer sales with Gateway, was laid off in the bad times, and went through a 6 month interview process to obtain the position he has now with Schering-Plough Pharmaceuticals. I am also lucky that my Mother retired a week before I went to back to work- couldn't ask for a better Day Care! Unfortunately my Dad has to babysit from heaven. We lost him in the fall of 2005 and nothing will ever be the same for our family. I know many of you met my Dad, and if you did, he made it hard to forget him, whether you knew him for a lifetime or for 5 minutes. My life is not the most exciting so I won't bore you much longer. One other quick metnion, my younger brother- that kid that was a freshman our senior year, the one that didn't want to be bothered with rules or studying, he made his mind up about what he wanted to do with his life his Jr. year at OHS. He went to the Air Force Academy and is now an F15 Pilot and my best friend. I am so proud of him also. I ask your prayers for him as he will be deployed to Afganistan next month and prayers for all our military.
