this will be a short one. i had a wonderful birthday yesterday- when i got home from shopping, a good friend had dropped off a plant and 2 bags of my favorite candy. well, i opened one (licorace allsorts) and ate about 15 pieces of it! totally discusted with myself and full of sugar, i took the rest of the bag and threw it in the trash can next to the computer. good move-right? wrong! when i got back from katie's and nate's house tonight, i sat down to check my emails and found myself DIGGING THROUGH THE TRASH picking out all the candy i had thrown away yesterday!!! :o( and i ate it, too! i had a passing thought of george costanza -yikes! i am so hopeless- well, tomorrow is another day (and besides all the "trash-candy" is gone).
i never have thought much "about me" so this is an interesting experience. i have simple likes. i love to watch people and animals. i enjoy reading and also teaching in various church callings. i have 6 children- 5 i have raised and the oldest i didn't know until he was 21(adoption situation). i loved being a mom to my kids and found it challenging and rewarding- especially since i see them now as adults.i like to draw,knit, cook, garden and spend time with different friends.my faith has always been an important part of my life and gotten me through the various challenges i have faced.
i have a little collectibles shop "red squirrel" that i totally love- my daughters convinced me to build this. it's been a creative outlet and an
opportunity to meet many new friends in the past 5 years- i love to travel- especially to visit my kids or friends.i would consider myself a creative person who enjoys doing things for others especially if they are in need. i have been blessed with good health and a good life.
