I am Kathy. Blogger since 2004. Since I started this blog I’ve made my home in Atlanta (twice), Eastern Europe, and Florida.
I’m mom to three amazing kiddos – they keep me going, in many senses of the phrase! You’ll find stories here of Bean – firstborn beauty who will always be daddy’s girl; Little Man – walking the journey to healing after epilepsy and a benign brain tumor (which he still has, firmly in place); and Bruiser – the name says it all, but also recovering from epilepsy. We’ve seen more pediatric neurologists in more countries than I can count. Hubbs joined the US Army Reserves in 2012 at a Chaplain Candidate. He’s working on completing his M.Div. so he can be ordained as a full chaplain. But until then, at least we have the peace of mind that he won’t be deployed till school is finished.
When I’m not working, parenting, wifing, DIY-ing, you’ll find me studying. I’m studying Nursing for a 2nd bachelors degree, due to finish spring of 2014. My pre-nursing career includes teaching English, editing, and social media management.
And the name Mudlark? A mudlark is a child – usually an orphan – who searches for things of value in the river muck. While I’m no orphan, I do spend my time searching for things of value. Sometimes I latch onto counterfeit gems, unwilling to release my grip. I’m working on that. But the very pursuit of the search implies the belief that there are treasures to be found, and the confidence that I’ll stumble onto them.
