The Waiting Is the Hardest Part

I've tried to be patient, I've tried to be Zen

I've driven me crazy and then back again.

Okay, so it ain't Shakespeare, that's for certain, but it is heartfelt. This whole "Wait for 2-1/2 months to find out whether or not you have a brain tumor" thing? I don't recommend it.

At the earliest in this whole round of nonsense, not only was I gobsmacked by too much else all at once to really spend much time dwelling on the possibility of an acoustic neuroma, there was much to do and cope with, so it was relatively easy to set any thoughts and fears aside. I was on complete overload from all the fun of this initially, and even my natural tendencies toward being a fuss-pot worrier simply did not have time or energy to flower. However, as the date of the MRI got closer and closer, it became commensurately harder to stay calm and relaxed about it all.

So it took me a minute...

On Techie Designer Mom

Okay it took me a few months. I wasn't sure what I wanted to write about on this awesome new platform I was exposed to a few months ago. Now I've decided, I'm going to let my Techie Designer Mom self shine through here!!

See here is how I got that name...I went to college in NYC, big design school, so that's where the "Designer" part of it comes in...then soon after graduating, I had a baby, this was after a few years of freelancing and even promoting my stuff at a licensing trade show (wasn't ready!! expensive lesson!!) but yeah, anyway. Then I ended up facing the reality of SINGLE motherhood, no it's not a pity pot story. I realized that I was going to have to do everything anyway, so I decided that since that was the case? I was going to do it MY way. So I went back to Seattle, which is where I'd most recently lived prior to NYC.

The frantic "gotta find a job" feeling set in pretty fast and I landed at a SaaS startup that I absolutely fell in love with. I started in marketing, making calls to folks who had NOT signed up after their free trial and so learning a LOT about the product. That was followed by a meeting with an angel, er, I mean accountant who worked there who told me that I was not to accept ANY job that paid less than I think we calculated about $45k. From there I was hired into Tech Support and blah blah my techie self was born.

Now I'm married to an even more techie guy, and we have 3 kids all together. We alternate between wanting to keep our finger on the pulse of the start up scent, move to a farm, and traveling the world to live in exotic places, with the kids of course.

So here I am. Techie Designer Mom.
