About my family
My favorite thing to do is to hang out with my family. May I share a little about them?
Husband Todd spends his days as my very own Michelin Man, cycles in his spare time and likes making things like homemade muscadine wine and fruitcake that people actually eat.
Daughter Sarah is an occupational therapist, helping residents in her nursing home learn to care for themselves. In return, they sing her songs and tell her stories and occasionally ask her to run off with them to Gatlinburg for the weekend. Too bad for them that she’s newly married to counselor Paul, who we affectionately call the Paulai Lama, because of the calming influence and free therapy he gives our loud family.
After four years away at college, middle child Ben is back at home again, attending medical school just five minutes from our house. We try to refrain from acting too excited that we get to enjoy his company, and he pays us back with fascinating details about diseases that we might get one day.
Youngest child Sam spends half his high school day studying film at the Fine Arts Center and drives a car with a horn that plays 36 different songs, including the theme to Rocky. He also likes to buy weird things at garage sales to resell online. Need 3 pocket watches or a 1950’s board game? Sam’s your man.
Jack and Jill enjoy galloping through the house, knocking pens off nightstands, turning over cups of water, and popping out of shoes. When they’re not impersonating leprechauns, they’re either wrestling each other or snoozing. Lucky for them they’re cute.
