My self-summary
I'm a firm believer in people forming their own opinions about me. I am my own worst critic.

I am an introverted extrovert. I like staying home and being with the people I care about (my boys), but I have fun when I do go out too. I am fast becoming addicted to World of Warcraft. I love to ski, but I haven't been able to go since I was eighteen. *Sigh*

I am a Navy brat (Go Navy!!!) and spent the first 9 years of my life in Italy. I love to travel. One of these days I plan to visit some of the countries I have always wanted to see, but didn't get a chance to. Topping that list would be England, Ireland, Scotland and France.
What I’m doing with my life
At this point, I'm living my life day to day. Who knows what the future will bring.
I’m really good at
I love to paint. When I paint, I am able to put aside all my worries and problems. I can focus on the joy of creating something special to me. Good or bad, it's mine. I find that I gravitate towards painting faces with the eyes as a focal point. I truly believe that the eye is the window to the soul.

I like to open a cookbook and find something new to try. One of the joys in my life is cooking for the people I care about. I like making favorite meals and watching faces light up in anticipation. This has always been one of my small ways of letting friends know I care without saying a word.

I have found that I really enjoy canning. I love going to the farmer's market and buying fruits and veggies for this. I must be doing something right. I have friends and family placing orders for pickles when I make them again next summer.
The first things people usually notice about me
Besides the obvious fact that I'm only 5 ft. tall, most people notice my eyes. They have a tendency to change colors. They change from brown to a greenish hazel and anything in between.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love to read. I like the fantasy genre mostly. Some authors I like are Anne McCaffery, Mercedes Lackey, Andre Norton and J. K. Rowling.
I like the work of Edgar Allan Poe. The dark intensity of his poems and stories never fail to move me. Some personal favorites are "The Raven" and "Annabel Lee".
I also like "Animal Farm", "The Importance of Being Ernest" and "The Charge of the Light Brigade".

I love Linkin Park , Aerosmith, Queen, Puddle of Mudd, AC/DC, some Coldplay....this list would take too much space. I love music! And, yes, this list does include classical, opera and some folk music. That being said....most country tends to make my ears bleed.

I like a lot of different movies. I love vampire/werewolf movies and most Tim Burton movies. I like anime. I watch more than my fair share of AZN and BBC. Some new favorite are Sweeney Todd and Pan's Labyrinth. I like the movies inspired by comics.

Note: Yes. I was a little Goth in my younger years. It seems that I still lean that way a little. ;)

I like classic cartoons...Still trying to find the third box set to complete my Thundercat collection. Then I will be working on Transformers for my oldest son. Yes, you can say it. I am a geek.

I like video and computer games. (Edited for people with their minds in the gutter!)
Six things I could never do without
My children, love, hope, laughter...still thinking.


Good Food!!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Lots of random things.
On a typical Friday night I am
Staying home and being with my children.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If I told, it wouldn't be secret....but, if you ask nice, I may tell. Then again, I may not.
You should message me if
You are not a sleaze.

Update: In the past year, my boys and I have gone through some very serious heartache. As I tend to be a stress eater, this year has not been kind to my waist line. I am in the process of trying to turn this around. If you are a man that cannot see past the surface of a woman to see the person within, please do not message me.
Thanks in advance for reading this and respecting it. :)
The two of us
