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 (17) is my rock. She (14) 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), two very spoiled cats, and a connure (small parrot, big attitude). 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. :)
