This is Stacey, how can I help you?

Sorry about that. I was trying to think of something witty for a title, but that was all I could come up with. I work in Customer Service for our city's electric company and that is how I answer the phone for 8hrs.

I guess I will start out simple...
My name is Stacey. I will be turning 35 on Sunday! Happy Birthday to me!! I have two intensely interesting sons (ages 12 and 4) and on August 16th I will have been married for 2 years to a man I didn't really like. Of course I love him madly now! He always gives me a dirty look when I tell people that I really didn't like him when we first met.

For me, everything you just read is what my life is about 99% of the time. Growing up all I ever wanted was to get married and have 2 children. I did all backwards, but I still did it. My son Garrett was born in 1997. My son Warrick was born in 2005. I met my husband somewhere around 2003 - we worked together and used to sit right next to each other. We were both in other relationships and in 2004 I became pregnant. It is always weird to me that my husband was there for my pregnancy and after 'our' son was born, even though he is not his biological child. We began dating right before Warrick turned 1 and have been together ever since. When I am not at work - I am with my boys.

The other 1% of my time - which I have to eek out whenever I can...I like to spend creating. My husband asks me all the time, "Is there anything you can't do?" There are some thing like balance our checkbook, Algebra, and repair a car, but there are a lot of things I can do. My Maternal Grandmother taught me to sew when I was about 10 years old and I have been doing that ever since. I went through one period where I painted yard art signs. After getting married, I tried my hand at jewelry making. From there I moved on to drawing/sketching. There are two creative outlets that I like most: sewing and drawing.

Other than that - I watch way too much TV. I am a faithful CSI fan - my son is even named after one of the characters. I love to read. My co-workers always ask me what my book is about and my answer is always, "murder, mystery, kidnapping and cops" - my books always read like an episode of CSI.

Well, that was supposed to be a short little blurb about who I am. I tend to get long winded when I talk too. I am looking forward to this exchange as I am having so much fun in my other exchange (moly_x_70).

Warrick is a very powerful and distinctive name.

Hi Stacey... nice to meet you!

Thanks Marty!
That was one of the main reasons that I named him Warrick. It was not common. I wanted normal but not something that you would get multiple people in a group named the same thing.
Being a Stacey - and usually being the only one - I liked that growing up.

i love the name warrick!and the character on csi!!;)

Debbie - That is a great idea. I may just have to go with a CSI theme. I can start to get a picture of my first entry already. Maybe I can think of some witty or punny title for the moly.

avifauna - Thanks! He was my favorite character when I picked the name! My oldest son thought it was awesome too. In the past 2yrs that we have been married I managed to get my husband hooked on the show too. He likes CSI - Miami the best. (I also entertained the thought of naming my son Cain after the character on CSI - Miami. I am glad that I didn't though. Warrick is way more interesting.)
