We are an untraditional family. We don’t do what others think we should do or go about things the way others expect that we would. We are working past the bumpy part of losing our house, and finding apartments that are dander free (due Shamus’ severe dander allergy). We transitioned from Shamus being a full time programmer/ part time writer to full time writer living on our commissions and from me being a stay at home mom with occasional part time work to me working full time outside the home and running my art and website hosting businesses on the side. God continues to provide.
My husband is a former computer programmer, current web comic writer, game designer, and now writer who plays video games for writing material. A super geek.
I work as a caretaker for an elderly woman while building my art career and reading, watching k-drama and anime and playing video games in my free time (I have been known to play some D&D as well.)
We unschooled all three of our children. Our oldest has moved out, the other two are fully in charge of their own learning. We spend plenty of time throughout the day working, talking, and playing together and the kids have plenty of free time to explore the world around them and playing video games–meaning LOTS of messes and even more learning take place.
We are born-again Christians with Libertarian leanings. We church at home and fellowship with those we encounter both online and in the real world. We are not anti-church –this is just where we find ourselves at the moment–where God has us. It is a very good thing though many will feel it bucks tradition.
There is more but that is enough explanation. We do as God leads us, which is why I am here.
