About the Che

I am an off duty Chemical Engineer by day and SuperMom by night.  I am from St. Louis, Missouri, but also have called Decatur, Illinois and Apple Valley, MN my home.   I went to a predominantly male University, worked in a predominantly male profession, have two male dogs and now have two male mouths to feed!  I wanted an outlet for my creativity, DIY projects, photographs and just to rant!   I hope to share some fun things I do for my kids and some shortcuts I have learned the past few years.

The show “Modern Family” was based on my life.  Okay not really, but should  have been!  I would be closest to Gloria, minus the flowing hair, sexy accent and huge boobs!  I dance.  I laugh.  I love my family and if I could eat Jimmy John’s everyday…I would!

A few Blog warnings:

1.  I make up words…often.  I also overuse the exclamation point!  Everything is exciting to me apparently.

2.  I might make references to Vodka quite often.  I am not an alcoholic.  I am Catholic, German and Irish…it’s just in my genes!  (see exclamation point again)

3.  My name is  really Cheryl.  My husband’s name is not Freddy, nor are Michael and Ryan my sons’ names.  Thumper and Murphy are my dogs real names as they are trying to find some lady friends and preferred I use their actual names.

4.  I come from a family of nicknames.  I will try to remember this and explain, but I make no promises!

5.  I will post a million pictures of my kids, because they are the cutest things that have ever captured my heart!

6.  I am an engineer.  I am not an English major.  I do know the difference between “your” and “you’re” as well as “its” and “it’s”, but I use prepositions at the end of sentences and begin ones with them also!  You will just have to get used to that!  😉

  1. More comments from me, I can’t resist….as long as you use your and you’re, this English major won’t care what else you do or don’t do! I can absolutely sympathize with needing an outlet – husbands apparently don’t speak, and conversations with 2 year olds leave a LOT to be desired, so expect many, many more comments from this cousin!
