My self-summary
So...since I'm not comfortable talking about myself and thought I'd be a little different, I've decided to give an assignment to my friends and family. THEY will be writing my profile! :)

Following are the ones I've received so far. Keep in mind: I did NOT write these. But at least you'll get an idea of the great, funny friends I surround myself with. And this is nothing yet...my brother and boys and all "my" teenagers (so obviously I adore kids) are working on the assignment as well!

--“Ok gentlemen, its been a while and I'm new to this, but here goes.
If you like pina coladas, and getting caught in the rain....enjoy being outdoors and having fun, let's talk.
I'm not a prissy girl. I love gardening and getting dirty but enjoy getting dressed up.
I'm self sufficient, but enjoy being pampered.
I'm easy going, but not a pushover.
I'm strong and independent, yet looking for someone that "cares about me.".
I'm looking for the simple things in life. Fun, laughter, compassion, friendship and romance.
Great conversation, a glass of wine, a couple of dances and a walk on the beach, sailing, camping. Your pick.”

--“Love to be outdoors, dancing and socially engaging. At this time however, it has been a while so I am not interested in the long drawn out romantic relationships. I want to meet, get it on, break a sweat and move on. Call me when you feel energetic.”

--"If you're generous, good-hearted and good-lookin' (inside or out, you choose), sit up and take notice, or your resurrected or reincarnate self will have regrets: phenomenal phemale personality (green thumb, great smile, glinting eyes) seeks quality male (has thumbs, teeth, eyes, maybe more) for chuckles, Chinese and championships. Alliterative ability optional but appreciated."

--“I love the outdoors, I'm funny and fun and romantic, but I'm nobody's fool, so spare me your crap. And your baggage. I have two kids but am not necessarily going to be interested in yours.
P.S. I'm no gold-digger, but it won't hurt if your wallet is well endowed. Everything else is negotiable.”

--“Looking for someone to share the love of adventure in many areas of life. Love to be outdoors and love to be around "good" people. Must be trustworthy and honest, no games please. Looking for companionship and a good sense of humor . Do you fit the bill?”
What I’m doing with my life
UPDATE: Youngest off to college, moved, trying to settle in and finally concentrate on doing something for me!
I’m really good at
Sailing, getting dirty, cooking, camping, gardening, taking care of others, doing whatever it takes to get the job done and not waiting for someone else to do it for me (ok, that could be a negative).
Oh, did I say "cooking?" That seems to be a big attraction at my house...I cook, don't eat, but everyone else seems to love it.
The first things people usually notice about me
My friends tell me it is my smile and twinkling eyes. (Maybe a bit of mischief.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Very eclectic in all categories.
Six things I could never do without
What I COULD do without (from a friend, trust me, I have a lot to say about this, but can live with this for now):
--Fancy clothes and jewelry and similar things that some people think they need to be content.
--What are some of the things that you have put up with that you don't miss?
Lies and dishonesty
Expectations of what you think your life has to look like. You are flexible and are in many ways embracing the unknown adventure that your life is becoming.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
UPDATE: Figuring out what's next!

APRIL 2011: What a great time I had in the Bahamas a few weeks ago with six teenagers (albeit, a bit exhausting)! They sure do have a lot of energy, but I'd go back in a heartbeat! Next!!!
On a typical Friday night I am
Not much these days, hence the reason I'm on this!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I guess you'll have to find out! :)
You should message me if
You are interested in conversing/getting to know each other for awhile online. Still trying to work up the nerve to even do this! :)
