Lets see.. I've spent the past four years surviving winter on an
island in the UP, battling cancer, dealing with teenagers and
hormones and preschoolers and toddlers, and sadly, the death of my
spouse unexpectedly two years ago. I've been through it all, and
I'm still standing. It's made me stronger as a person.
If you're still reading this, congratulations. Most are overwhelmed
by my circumstances, and that's ok too. I'm not asking for pity,
just a little understanding in that my circumstances are a bit
I have this huge awareness now that life is incredibly short and
very unpredictable at times... and I know that I don't want to
spend the rest of mine alone. (For the record, I'm in remission,
have been for 3 years, and have, according to doctors "the best
kind of cancer...lol). I'm fairly new to the dating thing, having
been in a relationship for all of my adult life (up until 2 years
I'm a bit of an introvert and at times, painfully shy. I don't mind
talking to someone online, but truthfully, it takes a bit for me to
feel comfortable enough before I'd be ready to meet up or talk on
What I’m doing with my life
I work almost full time slinging pills. Legally, of course. My kids
only have one parent available and this girl wouldn't look good in
prison stripes. It's not my dream job but it works for now. I've
been taking classes online for a business management degree, but,
truth be told... kind of hate it. My heart is in healthcare.
Unfortunately, army of children sort of limits my working/schooling
availability therefore, I'm sort of at a standstill with a career
at the moment. I'm ok with that.. I'd rather have the important
moments with my children now then regret that I wasn't able to have
them becuase of a demanding job :)
I’m really good at
Procreation. hahaha. I guess I'm a decent cook. I lack confidence
though, so I'm just going by what my kids tell me. I can crochet as
good as your granny... I excel in smart-assery. I'm probably one of
the nicest people you'll ever meet.. unless you piss me off. Then..
all bets are off.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes, and my super long hair. *Edit. I chopped the long hair and
donated it to Children with Hairloss. Sorry to disappoint.*
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books? I like Jodi Picoult. I've read most of the Hunger Games
series...and a few of the Girl with Dragon Tattoo series.. but
honestly? I lack time & attention span right now!
Movies- see above. Though I love Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless
Shows- When i can pry the remote away from my spawns, I like
watching the ID channel..as well as Food Network.
Music- varies. I like a lot of it, but like most people, adore what
was made during my high school years. Yes. I still listen to
Nirvana.. Sirius Lithium channel rocks my socks.
Food- love it! Except Fish. and Bologna. and... Eggs.
The six things I could never do without
My Iphone. Yea. I got sucked in. what of it?!
My sanity. Whoops. Lost that awhile ago....
Water. For a number of reasons ;)
Fuzzy socks. Just because.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Traveling. Fuzzy socks. Campfires, beaches. School x a million,
tribal politics, meal planning, things I cannot change, the massive
amounts of percocet I count on a daily basis..varies day to day!
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably at home, spending time with the family. I tend to watch
way more than my fair share of shows on Nickelodeon or Disney.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a single mom to a small tribe of children... Not by choice, but
because fate intervened. Widowed at 31, life can be cruel, but it's
time to pick up the pieces and figure out the next chapter...
You should message me if
You're genuine. You think you may be able to handle my crazy;), and
if you're willing to help me break out of my shell :)
