Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I enjoy meeting new people and seeing what adventures life has in
store for me. My favorite place to be is on a warm, tropical beach,
but I pretty much enjoy most out door activities, as long as
they're not too extreme.
I am the parent of two kids, a 22 year-old daughter and a 17
year-old son. My daughter is in school in Pennsylvania and is only
home a few months out of the year. My son lives with me full-time
but can see his dad whenever he wants.
I have two cats who are getting up there in age. I had a Sheltie
who lived to be 17 years old, although he's been gone for a number
of years. Not sure if I'll get another cat or dog when the two
kitties I have are gone. I know so many people with allergies and
then there is the challenge of making sure they're cared for if I'm
away. I guess I can decide that when the time comes.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am ready to head into the 2nd half of my life with energy and
enthusiasm. I am currently working at a job I love and busy being
the best mom I can be to my (nearly grown) kids.
I'm hoping to do some more traveling. Last year I went to Whistler
(took my son skiing), Las Vegas twice, Baltimore (for a
conference), a cruise to Bermuda and Indiana (for a family event).
This year hasn't seen much traveling with just a short trip to
Arizona in April and then will be to a conference in San Antonio in
May. Nothing new on the horizon at this time...but always looking
for that next adventure.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
My work. Listening to others. Cooking. Snuggling/cuddling with the
right person (are you out there?).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My blue eyes and my friendly disposition.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Iin 2012 I read The 50 Shades books and the Girl with the Dragon
Tattoo trilogy. The 2nd and 3rd books were best. Recently I read an
Alice Walker book, "The Secret of Joy" and am a book at First
Peoples. Currently I'm reading a book called "The Strangeness of
Beauty." I enjoy reading a variety of genres. My favorite movie is
Rent. I love musical theatre (probably because my daughter is a
musical theatre major in college). I'll listen to most types of
music but am especially fond of classic rock and show tunes. I am
not a picky eater and am willing to try almost anything. I am
discovering that I do better if I avoid certain foods such as
wheat, but I'm not fanatical about it.
Went to the Paul McCartney concert at Safeco field last year...wow!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My family and friends
A good book
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Balancing work and personal life. Planning my next trip. I am also
curious about what adventures are around the corner and what life
has in store for me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At home doing laundry. I am hoping to change that! I do have plans
to go to the theater soon to see a friend that's in a show.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
One time I lost a piece of clothing (it fell off) during a job
interview. It's up to you to ask if you want to know more.
