I like quiet times, cuddling on the couch as well as walks in the park or going someplace interesting where I can shoot some photos. I love the water and can often be found at the pool in my apartment complex. Not laying out trying to get that great tan....actually swimming! My father was in the Navy so we were always living on the coast somewhere, and Hawaii the last four years before his retirement, which brought me to the mid-west.
I love to be on my computer, editing photos or working on the websites I have created. No matter how many times I change the look or content on a page, I always think it can be better. Guess that makes me a little bit of a perfectionist. I believe you learn most about a person by how they treat children, the elderly and their pets.
I'm not a fan of big crowds. I don't like going to stadiums, but if you want to have a guys day at a game, go for it....I will be just fine doing some shopping or browsing antique malls. I don't have a large circle of friends, a couple really good friends, but I was one of those women that was so busy raising my children and taking care of my ex, I just lost contact with my friends. I got hit with empty nest syndrome and an ex who liked the women he worked with just a little too much. After the divorce, and kids away at college or making a life of their own, I find I have a lot of time on my hands. Looking forward to meeting someone to laugh with, have coffee with on Sunday morning and just share things with. I like the word Schnukums"....something about texting someone "good morning schnukums" is just fun!
Being up front and honest, I am struggling with a muscle disorder that causes me to have to take Prednisone. Nothing debilitating, fatal or catching; I am not confined to a wheelchair, use a cane or walker. However, good old Prednisone tends to make a person "puffy" and I have the traditional "moon face" associated with it. I have been on the meds for about 18 months which is a long time for Prednisone use, and unfortunately gained....don't faint....70 pounds. I have never weighed this much in my entire life and I am very self conscious of it.The doc promises the weight and puffiness will go away once I am off it however; it doesn't help that I believe Ice Cream should be the foundation of the food pyramid. lol I do not need anyone to be my nurse, just someone who is understanding and is willing to actually recognize who I am on the inside.
I also enjoy sci-fi, thriller, fantasy, crime. Favorite food....Italian and Mexican. I do not like Sushi at all, but, I could eat chicken wings any way they are fixed. TV - I am hooked on Blue Bloods. I have Netflix so had a marathon last winter and was disappointed that they hadn't uploaded more seasons. I do not like reality TV, but will catch an episode of The Voice or Idol just to see what's going on.
