I'm a medical massage therapist and have been practicing for more than thirteen years, I love my work. I run a home based massage business and I work at a medical center full-time.
I've been married twice, the first was my high school sweetheart and he became the father of my beautiful daughter. I married my last husband mostly because I didn't think I could take care of myself and my baby daughter. The funny part was I ended up mostly taking care of all of us, including my husband. That last marriage lasted for 25 years, not all bad, not all good- but years that helped to make me who I am. I am happy to say we are still good friends, too many years just to throw away.
What else can I say about myself? I was born and raised in Florida but I love living in Texas. I feel like Austin is home, I've lived here a little over six years. Also I would rather do most anything than go shopping at malls or department stores, thrift stores are fun and yard sales are great. I am not above picking up good stuff on the side of the road, I love a bargain. I enjoy camping and being outside doing anything, fishing, hiking, sitting and talking or playing music and singing by a fire. I never get tired of these things
I play musical instruments of all kinds but I'm not that good at them I don't think . I buy them and to learn to play and then I drift from one to another when the mood hits me, right now the violin is my passion.
I'm also helping to teach my grand-daughter about life and the joy of it. My daughter and I take her camping and fishing, teaching her to take care of herself and not expect someone else to do it.
I don't watch TV, I don't own one anymore but I have Netflicks on my computer. I like British dramas and I am a classic movie nut, so I watch those when I am at the gym. I like the old stars, Katherine Hepburn, Cary Grant, Bette Davis. Most modern movies are pretty predictable and not worth the money to me, however once in a while they come out with a great one. I also like plays and ballets and would like to see more if I get the chance.
I've never lost my love for folk music, Joni Mitchell is my favorite. Don Williams is still at the top of my list of country singers. I like guitar music, almost any style as long as it has heart. I have also recently renewed my relationship with classical music. I'm trying to interest my grand-daughter in classical music and I have come to love it more myself.
I eat clean, organic if possible, but I'm not a vegetarian anymore. Don't get me wrong I'm not perfect in my eating habits I love fried almost anything, especially fish, but I try to restrain myself.
