My self-summary
I am a constant contradiction. I'm quiet, but can get seriously loud. At first I'm shy, but I warm up quickly. And I swear, I'm completely sane, although I can seem totally crazy. I'm a preschool teacher for developmentally delayed/disabled 2-5 yr olds.... sanity is completely overrated in my line of work. :)

I have two teenagers that keep me young. We have a very interesting and surprisingly open relationship. I'm still "mom", but am secretly tickled that I'm also "friend". He (19) is my rock. She (16) is my sunshine. I can't imagine my life without either.

I love animals. I've rescued a sweet full size collie (Lassie, only black instead of tan), and two very spoiled cats. If it were practical, I'd probably have more. I'm soft hearted and hate to see anything suffering.

I'm not a damsel who needs to be rescued (although I enjoy the thought). My daddy really wanted a son, but was blessed with two daughters, so he "made do". I love fixing and building things. I actually own tools, and not that creepy pink set from Walmart. I can change my own oil, unclogg a drain, and rework the wiring in a lamp (after the cat chewed through the cord). Don't worry, I do "women things" too. I love to cook and would everyday if my schedule allowed. I can sew, both with a machine and by hand. And I have other "talents" as well.... (there has to be *some* mystery left for later though)

I'm not afraid to get dirty, but I clean up pretty well (or so I've been told). I can hold my own in just about any social setting from hanging out with the guys, to dinner with the company execs. I think my favorite is snuggling on the couch, watching a movie, or just talking. Intelligent conversation is my drug of choice. If you can keep up with the way my twisted mind works.... wow. :)
What I’m doing with my life
I'm really quirky and as crazy as this sounds (considering I'm in my 40s), I'm constantly discovering new things about myself. I've lived a bit of a sheltered life up until my divorce. Since then, I've opened myself up to a lot of new experiences (hell, let's be honest, I went through the typical "you can't tell me what to do anymore" phase and got a little wild). I've discovered a lot of things about myself that I hadn't realized before. And surprisingly, the more I learn, the more I really like myself....
I’m really good at
figuring things out. I have an unusual way of looking at things. When there's a problem, I have a tendency to figure out how to fix it, and it's not always the most conventional solution.
The first things people usually notice about me
my smile, my sarcastic wit, my eyes (and if I was honest, I'd add my wide ass to that list, although I've been assured it's not as big as I imagine.... )
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
books: Stephen King, Anne Rice, John Patterson (although there's always a book in my purse, on my nightstand, and in my car, and yes, I'm reading them all at once...)
movies: horror, thrillers, comedy
music: just about anything as long as it has some sort of beat...
food: no mushrooms (allergic), otherwise I'm open to anything.
Six things I could never do without
do my kids count for one thing or two? lol
family, friends, love, sleep, time, sex
not necessarily in that order.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
random craziness.... I did say you have to be careful to keep up with how my mind works. I have a tendency to jump from one topic to another with seemingly no connection between the two....
On a typical Friday night I am
burned out on the day to day. ready to either relax with the family, or go out and have some fun.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to hate carrying a purse (I know, not the typical "girl" attitude), but in the past year or two I've not only changed my mind, but you never know what you'll find in there.... really, sometimes it surprises me what I can pull out of that thing....
You should message me if
You live in the general vicinity, I sound interesting enough, and you're curious....
Take a chance. I don't bite.... hard. lol

If you're married, attached, seeing someone, etc... You may not want to waste your time. I'm not looking to be the reason someone's marriage/relationship failed. I've been on the other side of that situation, and it hurts. I won't knowingly cause anyone pain. Sorry.
The two of us
