“I am a nanny. I was working as a bank teller and days went by so slowly. As a nanny, there is always something to do. We can go to parks and play at the beach. I grew up in Massachusetts, but my parents moved here for lower property taxes. I got married and moved here two years later. Everything is cheaper here. The houses are half the price and the property taxes are nothing compared to Massachusetts. The heat and humidity get to me. I like 40 degrees. On the one day it is cold here, I am the only person outside. Anything over 80 degrees makes me want to hide in the air conditioning. But it is worth it to be close to my parents.
I am not sure what all of this says about me
I met my husband when I was 15. I saw him at a party and I said, ‘Dibbs. I am going to marry him.’ One of his friends said, ‘Who, Nelson?’ I said, “If that is his name, then Nelson and I are getting married.’ He got into the hot tub and I slid myself next to him and we started talking. It was PG and I did the talking. He was shy and didn’t say anything. He didn’t have much experience with girls. The second time I saw him, his friends asked for my number for him. I wore him down and we have been married for two years. I want to have kids and become a personal trainer at some point.
I fell off a 20-foot rock wall and broke my pelvis in half. People wanted to call an ambulance, but that was too expensive. I had better things to do with my money. I got up and drove myself home. I have a high pain tolerance and it didn’t hurt that bad. I was 17. I felt like I was losing the mobility of my leg, so I started jogging a month later. It is how I started running. I am not sure what all of this says about me.”
