My self-summary
I don't think it really matters what I put in here.. but here it is anyhow...
I genuinely care about other people. I am mindful of my words and actions and how they affect other people. If I ask you how your day is going, it is because I care how your day is going. I am not just making idle conversation. More people should take the time to listen and not just pretend they care about people. If you take the time to know someone, they may just surprise you.
I spend a large amount of my time with my grandson because he is just the coolest little guy ever. There is nothing quite like a hug and a kiss from a 2 year old. Even the slobbery ones are great.
I work days at a job I like. Even on days I don't like my job, I still enjoy the work.
I enjoy fishing, movies, photography, anything outside normally.
What I’m doing with my life
Everything I can get away with, and some I can't.
I’m really good at
~Grace under pressure. When others are running out the door screaming, I am the one who will walk in and try to calm the situation.
~Cooking. I can cook pretty much anything and enjoy doing it.
~Knitting. Need a scarf? I can do that :) A sweater.. go to the mall.
~Being grandma to the most awesome almost 3 year old ball of joy that ever existed.
~Traffic. I am apparently sick and twisted. I like traffic.
~Filling the memory card on my camera. Went to the zoo recently, over 500 pictures.....
The first things people usually notice about me
Sadly.. my grandson. He is very cute and super friendly.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
~I like most all music. I prefer newer country and rock such as Nickelback, Shinedown, Daughtry, Trace Adkins, Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts, etc. I don't really care what I listen to as long as I can understand the lyrics and the bass doesn't vibrate my spine out of alignment.
~My movie tastes are all over the place. I like Shawshenk Redemption, Con Air, US Marshals, Eddie & the Cruisers, Gone in 60 Seconds, Good Morning Vietnam, Old Dogs, An Officer and Gentleman, First Knight, The Lake House, Michael, Groundhog Day, Stripes, anything with Nicholas Cage, John Travolta, Morgan Freeman, Steven Seagal, Julia Roberts, Mel Gibson, Sandra Bullock, Keanu Reeves, Tommy Lee Jones, Richard Gere, Sean Connery. I like movies that make you feel good. The whole point is to be entertained for a couple of hours.
~I do not watch very much TV, but when I do turn it on, these are the shows I look for - True Blood, Glee, Top Chef, NCIS, Law & Order SVU. My absolute favorite show is NCIS.
~I read a lot. Mainly fiction. Favorites include Patricia Cornwell, Stuart Woods, Janet Evanovich, J.A. Jance, Charlene Harris, Rick Riordan, James Patterson, David Baldacci.
~My food tastes are pretty varied. I love Italian and Mexican food. The best meal ever for me would be Starbucks coffee, stuffed mushrooms, gnocchi and a steak cooked on the grill. Followed up by New York Style Chocolate Marble Cheesecake with raspberries on top and a Captain Morgans and Coke or maybe a Mudslide.

To pick absolute favorites...
Food ~ Steak. New York Strip. Medium.
Non- Alcoholic Drink ~ Starbucks coffee with Creme Brulee creamer and a ridiculous amount of sugar
Alcoholic Drink ~ Captain Morgans and Coke
Song ~ Live Like You Were Dying ~ Tim McGraw
Book ~ Blue Water, Green Skipper ~ Stuart Woods. Not because it is an exceptional book, but because I spent 6 years trying to find a copy of it. I paid entirely too much for it. But it is what it is.
Movie ~ First Knight. Richard Gere, Sean Connery. Hell yeah.
TV Show ~ NCIS. I know so many people who just need to be Gibbs'd.
Six things I could never do without
My laptop, camera, cell phone, vehicle, children, and grandson
I spend a lot of time thinking about
World domination
Witty stuff to post on facebook as a status
The square root of pi
Zebra stripes
Car repairs
Quantum physics
My kids
My grandson

But, seriously folks, my brain goes a million miles an hour. It never stops. I think about all sorts of things. Doesn't everyone?
On a typical Friday night I am
hanging out with my grandson or out checking out some place I have not been before. Usually planning Saturday morning.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I will have to think about this one, because I really don't have too many secrets.
You should message me if
~You do NOT do drugs OF ANY KIND.
~You are not looking for a quick hookup because it will not happen. I have more self-respect than that.
~You do not have a criminal record.. traffic tickets are fine. I have had a few myself over the years. Quite a few. But I behave now :)
~You have NEVER been in a mental facility other than as an employee.
~You do not have to have a drink to get through the day.
~You are comfortable in your own skin and have a sense of humor about your flaws.
~You like outdoors and pets.
~Want to meet someone who is fun, open-minded, adventurous, happy in her own skin and doesn't have mental issues, hang-ups, ridiculous baggage or a criminal record...
The two of us
