All right, so let’s get some of the mind-numbingly boring basics out of the way. My name is Deb and I live in Colorado. I have been married to my husband Jim for sixteen years. I have an Engineering degree and I worked in that field until I got laid off from The Best Job Ever in the wake of September 11, 2001.

Obviously with one person unemployed, the only logical thing to do was have the other person quit his job, move across the country, buy a house and start a family. We have two fantastic kids, my son Big who is 5, and my daughter Little who is 3.

I find being a mom similar to having a tiny herd of Miniature Vikings roaming freely around my house, demanding food every fifteen minutes and leaving a trail of dirt, empty juice cups, and foot demolishing Legos. But in a good way.
