Hello everyone. I have been lurking around here trying to absorb as much as I can from all of the Moms My name is Jaime, I am 29 years old, happily married to my DH of two years, Bryan. We have no kids yet, which is why I started lurking here on the boards, I hope it is okay to post here even if I do not have children. I am excited to have children one day, but for now I am a Mommy to three furkids, Cornflake, BooBerry and CocoaPuffs, all cats.

I have my degree in Elementary Education, K-6, however, I felt that I was being called to better serve women and children in crisis situations. So I now manage a Domestic Violence Center in my town. It is a very hard job, and I work long hours, but it is very fullfilling on an emotional and spitual level.

Nice to meet everyone!

Wow- working in DV is hard. I was on the other end of DV counseling a few years ago.

Welcome to MDC - this is a great place! I wish I'd found it before I had kids as well (instead of when baby #2 was 8 months old)...there are some things I would definitely have done differently if I'd had the information and support you can find here at MDC.

Glad you are here!

It is very hard, but very rewarding. I can't imagine not working there now, I feel great that I can look in the mirror and know I am doing something good for someone else. DH and I know we will never be rich : But that isn't what it is about for us.

Thanks so much for the welcomes I really like it here so far, I am learning a lot! I really like the Mindful Home Management section. My husband and I are excited to make cleaners, etc, that are better for the environment.
