I have two teenagers that keep me young. We have a very interesting and surprisingly open relationship. I'm still "mom", but am secretly tickled that I'm also "friend". He (19) is my rock. She (16) is my sunshine. I can't imagine my life without either.
I love animals. I've rescued a sweet full size collie (Lassie, only black instead of tan), and two very spoiled cats. If it were practical, I'd probably have more. I'm soft hearted and hate to see anything suffering.
I'm not a damsel who needs to be rescued (although I enjoy the thought). My daddy really wanted a son, but was blessed with two daughters, so he "made do". I love fixing and building things. I actually own tools, and not that creepy pink set from Walmart. I can change my own oil, unclogg a drain, and rework the wiring in a lamp (after the cat chewed through the cord). Don't worry, I do "women things" too. I love to cook and would everyday if my schedule allowed. I can sew, both with a machine and by hand. And I have other "talents" as well.... (there has to be *some* mystery left for later though)
I'm not afraid to get dirty, but I clean up pretty well (or so I've been told). I can hold my own in just about any social setting from hanging out with the guys, to dinner with the company execs. I think my favorite is snuggling on the couch, watching a movie, or just talking. Intelligent conversation is my drug of choice. If you can keep up with the way my twisted mind works.... wow. :)
