Who am I? I am a nurse. I am a wife. I am a mother. I am a daughter. I am a sister. I am a loyal friend. I am a writer. I am a walrus (Sorry. Breakfast Club moment). I’m Mrs. Doherty. Let me tell you; it’s not easy being me. You see, I became Mrs. Doherty when I married Mr. Doherty. I love him; there is no denying that but I also have my work cut out for me on a daily basis. To know us is to love us. Or maybe hate us? Either way it can’t be explained. Our love is like a chemistry experiment that you just have to watch to understand and even then you might walk away confused. I’m also a part time night shift nurse and a full time mother to 4 kids. Sleeping is not something I do a lot of which might explain why my eyes have huge black circles under them. Trust me when I tell you that they are the kind of black circles that would send a make-up artist into a full blown panic attack. One day I’m gonna walk up to the MAC make-up counter after working a 12 hour night shift like a real life zombie and ask for some help. I’ll video it for your entertainment, don’t worry. A chocolate lab named Teddy also lives with us. He’s usually a mellow dude and goes fairly unnoticed by visitors until he passes gas. His super power is farting and darting leaving all of the adults staring at each other in disgust.
My life is crazy. I am crazy. Just crazy enough to make people like you feel normal. I love to laugh and I am not afraid to laugh at myself. The things you read in this blog are not the type of things you might hear in a PTA meeting. You’ve been warned. Don’t get me wrong. I love people. I invest a lot of my time in relationships. I care about people. I just hate fake people. I realized a long time ago that at the end of the day it doesn’t matter what you own, what you look like or what neighborhood you live in. The only thing that matters are the people’s lives you have touched. Writing this blog is my humble contribution to the world. As in life, please do not take this blog too seriously. It’s just me, Mrs. Doherty, unleashed.
