I should mention, I am very, very loyal to my family and care deeply for my adult son-no matter how old your child gets, they will always be your child and I would crawl over burning glass to save him-should it come down to an apocalyptic type situation that would require such a thing. Not to say he isn't a giant pain in my ass a great deal of the time...cause he is-but there is nothing he could do that would make me not love him...if you are a parent and do not feel this way-we cannot be friends. I just thought I should put that out there so ya'll are clear...it is important.
Update 8/14/2013-I am going to mention this right up front to save time: I don't bike, hike, run(unless being chased by something awful and only faster than the slowest person), camp, climb (except a step stool to get that pesky cobweb), travel (unless you count my pilgrimages to Las Vegas) and hmmm what else does everyone else seem to list on their profile um, just pretty much expect I don't do it...I am a terrible person-do not under any circumstance contact me. Dear lord-don't do it! Thank you.
I do, visit, coupon, craft, think, play, thrift, brainstorm, help, rescue, coordinate events and watch funny shows while nursing hospice critters (24/7 lifestyle). I get a couple of days off a year and run to Las Vegas to escape and have my fantasy fun...my quick/cheap holiday. Oh yeah and I Loooove the holidays-my house will soon look as though santaland threw-up all over the place Oh Joy!!! I do also join the masses at Black Friday, which has now started on Thursday night and is not as fun-just sayin-I like to keep them as two separate days/events.
Currently, I am seeking friendship-but, oddly enough I still believe in that fairy-tale ending for myself-I just don't know if it will be Pixar, Disney or Grimm-Please-don't be Disney-anything but Disney, although, the gowns are super nice....I love the Monroe/Rosalie fairy-tale relationship and the Maggie/Glenn duo...Hmmmmm Sorry, I digress...so, friendship then...first anyway-of course.
Update 2/12/14 I have come to the realization there are certain needs a woman has that she simply cannot do for herself-I have made peace with the fact that I will need to allow myself to let another person assist me with these all important tasks...I am referring of course to programming all the digital clocks in my home twice a year, opening jars and closing the damn ladder(it has been open for a year!). There are more, but baby steps.
I believe there are still people out there that know what satire is...a girl can dream.
Running with Scissors
Plays well with others(sometimes)
Calming jittery squirrels
I have really bendy thumbs
Tripping on a flat surface for no apparent reason
I do enjoy reading young adult literature as well as satire and horror short stories...all sorts of stuff...I used to like to go to meet the authors at readings when my son was young...it was a fun hobby.
I love Thai food, Chinese, Japanese, I am a semi vegetarian, too lazy to go all the way, but I feel guilty about it so sort of evens out...I eat chicken and fish-the only things I can prepare and pastas and salads of course.
My mop is my favorite thing I love my mop-it is a self wringing model and I keep it ready to use in the utility sink because I have a very bad dog. I mop daily.
My cat Olive, she is my best friend.
lip gloss/chap stick-I am addicted.
Wipes-facial and cleaning-love em!
Oh and...my son, he is an adult-kinda, working on it-but is a great person and I wouldn't want to ever be without him in my life.
I am a "blanket girl" I love my blanket and become emotionally attached to it. I won't let it go until it is so threadbare and there is no stuffing left. I have attachment issues ;O)
This list subject to change at my whim
