I was a bit of a hippie when I was younger now I live a pretty quiet, peaceful life. I just opened a massage business and I work at a medical center part time which keeps me busy. My best job however is babysitting my grand-daughter once a week. She's almost four years old and she keeps me moving. I've been a massage therapist for ten years, it helps to keep me in shape both mentally and physically and I love it more with every passing year. When I'm working I am totally focused on what I'm doing and very much in the moment. I feel the same when I'm with my grand-daughter, I am totally focused on her. I'm happiest I think when I'm doing massage or when I'm spending time with her.
I have been married twice, once because I was knocked up and married my high school sweetheart and because I was told I had to, and the last time was mostly because I didn't think I could take care of myself and my daughter. The funny part was I ended up mostly taking care of all of us, including my ex husband. That last marriage lasted for 25 years, not all bad, not all good- but years that helped to make me who I am. I am happy to say we are still good friends, too many years just to throw away.
What else can I say about myself? I was born and raised in Florida but I like Texas much better. I feel like Austin is home, I've lived here a little over four years. Something else about me, I don't care to spend money, I would rather do most anything than go shopping. Thrift stores are fun and yard sales are great. I am not above picking up good stuff on the side of the road. I love camping and being outside doing anything, fishing, hiking, sitting by a fire.
I enjoy singing and playing music, I recently bought myself an upright piano that I'm enjoying attempting to learn to play. I like instruments of all kinds, I buy them and try to learn to play. However, I drift from one to the other so much I never quite master any of them. It's fun to try though. Right now I'm playing my fiddle a lot and working on improving my skill, it is for me very difficult but the most fun.
Well this is a lot of information, if you are still awake, I hope you read the rest of this profile.
