I am a happy and healthy,drug and disease free lady. I am tall and confident, fun-loving and witty, friendly and outgoing. I like to be around people who are smart but not too impressed with themselves. A good conversationalist is always a desirable quality, but I don't enjoy debating the issues of the day.
A sense of humor has helped to keep me grounded and maintain my sanity through good and tough times. I try not to take myself too seriously, and I delight in making those I care about smile. Life's too short to mope and mull over the past and curves thrown in your path. I enjoy being around positive, upbeat, and happy people.
My interests are varied - I like to read, but I love to go to a football or baseball game. (I hate NASCAR, so it'll never work if that's your thing) Cooking is fun on the grill, over a campfire, or on your range - but I also love a nice restaurant, a mom and pop diner, or a BBQ sandwich (know a good place?)
My family and friends are very important to me. My 2 sisters live nearby, as do a gaggle of cousins, nieces and nephews. I grew up in a "Leave it to Beaver" type family. Never heard my dad raise his voice in anger, and my mom really did wear a dress and an apron every day as a stay at home mom.
My son is 22, and a college student. He was diagnosed with brain cancer at age 11, and endured surgeries, radiation and chemo treatments that were excruciating. He never complained or cried, "Why me?" He is so brave and strong and not bitter. He is and always will be my hero.
I have a love for all animals (OK, snakes are an exception!)That likely came from being raised on a farm. I have been known on more than one occasion to stop my car and go help a turtle to the other side of the road before he got squished. I have the same kind of heart for people, but I assume most of them know how to dash across the street or at least better judge their speed before crossing.
I would love to meet a quality person who is just real and decent. No lies, no anger issues. No OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder)hang-ups, no games. I can promise in return to be calm, have no drama, little baggage, lots of patience and an accepting attitude.
