To be a professional gambler, you need to be a man - at least this is what many media outlets and society as a whole are trying to tell us.

Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I'm Katherine, a 25 year old mother, wife, employee, and pet owner.
In addition to my day to day (or day to night, night to day) job as
a domestic violence advocate, and my part time job as a vet assistant
at a busy veterinary practice - I am married to a tall, lanky Canadian
who has a penchant for fire, video games, and olives, and me.
I have a dog, four cats, and a rat. I love pets and would probably have even more except my husband would
divorce me and then I would have to live with all of them in my car.
Originally from south Texas, since college I have lived in New York and
Toronto before settling in northern Arizona. Cooking and eating are
probably two of my favorite things in the world. This makes it
necessary that running is a close third. I also read the funny papers,
spend a good percentage of my paycheck on iTunes , and collect Brian Andreas art. More than anything I want to be a cowboy in Larry McMurtry’s Lonesome Dove.
My daughter, Violet, was born in April 2008 and has changed my life in mostly amazing ways. We don't need to talk about the laundry. Or diapers.

Hi there from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time.
oooooo I love Lonesome Dove. I could watch it over and over. I cry everytime i watch it. And your profession.......wow. it's admirable, i imagine it's a very very difficult job to do, so Kudo's to you and anyone else who can get through it and still smile. I was once on the other end of it for many years and I know how what you see and hear must be to try and deal with. Bless you for being there for those who need you.
When I had my first I only had one dog and when I got pregnant with my second I thought..."I can't do this!" I dearly loved my dog but my children more so he went to live with this WONDERFUL family nearby. How do you do it?
