I am close to my family. I have three sisters and two sets of parents. We speak weekly (with the exception of my baby sister who lives with Lilli and I). My dad lives close by and visits regularly. I grew up with Educators as parents. That said, I am a nurturer by nature. While I am close to the parents and value their opinions I still live my own life and enjoy it. I enjoy going on nature walks, visiting museums, learning about history, visiting places I've never been and just enjoy company.... (like everyone else on this site, I think). The book could continue but that would leave us with nothing to discuss in person.
Gentlemen, if you are of the type that believes women should be kept in the house to speak when spoken to... you may want to move on! I like doing things like mowing my own lawn, gardening and learning how to fix things. Hopefully, this isn't off-putting, it's just how I was raised.
I now manage a retail store in the Rockville Maryland area. I am finally content with the company I work for. They push me to be the best person I can be on a daily basis with realistic goal setting, amazing tools to improve my self and my knowledge base and trust me to run their business.
Outside of work, I'm the mother to a toddler. Yep, she's finally walking and talking. :) She's an amazing little girl and we definitely have a lot of fun.
Sticking my foot in my mouth (figuratively).
Laughing at others' jokes.
Movies- I'll watch literally anything except horror and most of the times I'll enjoy it! I have favorites. Green Mile, Gran Torino, Shawshank Redemption, Up, Mulan, Love Actually, I could go into all the sappy ones but you guys know we girls like that crap!
Music- I'm into all sorts of music. My favorites are jazz, country, classical and I do like me some Charlie Musselwhite... I'll listen to the top 40 occasionally.]
Food- I didn't get curvy eating nothin! :) I like it spicy, seasoned well, on the grill, rolled in rice, baked and well.... I like food!
