When the Japanese mend broken objects, they aggrandize the damage by filling the cracks with gold. They believe that when something has suffered damage and has a history it becomes more beautiful. ~Barbara Bloom
Welcome to My Life is a Reality Show!
Plot: day-to-day trials and tribulations of Trish. See her juggle 2 jobs – a file clerk by day and a transcriptionist by night. She also shares custody of her 7-year-old daughter with her ex-husband. All while maintaining her sanity? With her health in jeopardy because of her weight, she seeks to become a better person, friend and, most of all, mother. Watch her grow stronger or crack under pressure. Everyday is a different adventure!
~Trish: 30, slightly unbalanced and completely boy-crazy. Trish is the main focus of this reality show.
~Allison: Trish’s 7-year-old daughter. Allison is currently in 1st grade and spends most of her time driving her parents crazy. However, she excels at being cute and lovable and thus is spoiled rotten.
~Ross ( greensham ): Trish’s ex-husband and Allison’s father.
~Family: Trish’s mom lives in MO and is recovering from the recent loss of her husband, the only real dad Trish ever had. Trish’s oldest (and only blood-related) brother, DJ, lives in MO, also. Although, they were forced apart for much of their childhood, they have re-connected and filling in all the blanks over the last 20 years. There are 3 step-siblings – Sam lives in Lakeland with his wife and step-daughter; Napoleon lives in Ft. Walton Beach and has 3 children (Michael 32, Kimmie 18 (who just has 1yo daughter) and Levi 16); Rob lives in AZ. The only family still in Jacksonville is Trish’s Uncle J whom she has no contact with.
~Work People: Joe is Trish’s main boss at FCSO (the day job). Claudia is Joe’s counterpart at FCSO. Bernita is under both of them, but over Trish. Andrea is her supervisor at her night job. The day job involves about 30 other women between the 2 departments Trish works in. Her main duties are QA'ing files before filing them, writing meeting minutes and creating work instructions and forms. Way too much for the little pay involved. Copytalk is a company where Trish sits and listens to people talking and types out everything they say, no matter how bizarre.
~Jasmine, Polyamorous & Evil Angel(the felines): Okay, so they aren’t people, but they are important parts of Trish’s life. Jasmine is the self-appointed queen of the house. Belle recently passed away at 10yo. Once the grief of her passing was dealt with, Trish decided to give 2 Siamese kittens a good home - Poly and Angel. Jasmine slowly accepted them and they all live happily now. Their names fit them as Poly is very social and vocal and Angel is a bit more reserved, but lovable once she gets to know you.
