Official back story: made a break for the big city just after High School to attend school to become a massage therapist. That didn't last long - after 2 months, I realized I'd rather receive a massage than give a massage and so the course was dropped.
In 2001, returned to my hometown to take the glorified secretarial course at the community college and have since worked for a web design company, managed an acupuncture clinic, handled the finance department of a non-profit publishing company and as a tax professional in a busy tax office.
2005 - I became a married woman!
2006 - I became a mama!
2008- Mama again!
In 2009, my "spare time" bookkeeping job grew into an actual business with both in-home and on-site client meetings.
In 2010, I went to university to start a 4 year Bachelor of Commerce program.
Want to whine? I might just respond! Make my rainy day!
You are my sunshine, peeps!
Where does your name Rainy come from? Is it related to the name of your blog?
When I first started this blog, we in the midst of a looooong string of rainy days. That coupled with the PPD I was dealing with, along with 2 young boys (who were almost 1 & 3 at the time) left me in quite a mental mess. Massive amounts of chocolate (and wine) topped the short list of things that made me happy. That made it feel sunny again. And so Chocolate on a Rainy Day was born. Since then, I've adopted Rainy as an online persona, using it or Rainyday as my signature on other blog posts and forums.
