Wow - describing myself is extremely hard. My closest friend described me (when I asked her) as funny, kind, compassionate, pretty (her word, not mine - obviously have hard time with compliments) and funny (yes, she said it twice). I miss being important to someone and someone being important to me. I love doing for others, making them smile and laugh.
My children are THE most inportant things to me. They give me a sense of purpose that a person would never believe existed until they have children. I'm not exagerating when I say that people are always telling me how wonderful they are, how considerate they are and how well adjusted they are, considering all of the crap they have been through in their short lives. I respect them very much. In fact, they are the ones who encouraged me to get on this sight!
My job is also extremely important to me. I am a high school guidance counselor and have more work on my desk and plate then I ever had while being in the classroom for 21 years. I taught business where the students received college credit while in high school and I terribly miss the classroom. My philosophy of teaching was I had to entertain them. If I didn't, my "control" was over. This forced me to have fun in the classroom, too. As a counselor, I have lots of Starbursts and Tootsie Rolls for the students - sometimes I think the adults eat more than the kids do!!!
I would love to find someone to share quiet moments, funny moments, wine, cooking and exercising that is entertaining! I want to be with someone who wants to share life with little drama, low maintenance (like I have been told I am) and enjoy family as much as I do. And, loves to laugh at my corny jokes as much as I laugh at his!!!!
Just to let you know if you read all the way through this... my pictures are terrible. I am so not photogenic. My friends keep telling me to take new pictures and put on here. Just HATE getting my picture taken.
