A Little About Me

Things I am:







I’m 44. Boy is 17. We live in the city now with 2 cats.





☮I am almost a hippie. Not quite a yuppie. I’m naughty and nutty.I can be funny. I’m a mommy and a mrs., I’m a student, and I’m an artist. I’m a procrastinator and innovator. I’m quiet and loud. I am consistantly inconsistant (all of the time-mostly).

would a housekeeper,chef, handyman,chauffer, and masseuse really be too much to ask?!?!

I’m a 36 year old woman who is a mom to an ten year old boy, married for thirteen years to a disabled Marine Corps veteran/cowboy, and has returned to school to get a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree (to start)**. We live on five acres on the side of a hill in the country with three horses and a dog*. We are five minutes from a lake, twenty minutes from town, and an hour from anything really worth going to, including my college.

*update: we have five horses now and no dog.

but we’re trying to get back down to three (or less depending who you ask)

**update: found a home for one of the horses so now we are down to 4. and I graduated with my BFA


EDIT: We are in transition. We have lost our husband and daddy.

We have no horses, no dog. I’m a 38 yr old widow with a young son, just trying to find our way in this new world.

EDIT: We are less in flux now.

I’m 42.

Boy is 15.

We do have a cat.

    Gods, I’m so sorry for your loss[es].
    I don’t do as much here as I should, but I do read your updates and enjoy them.
    Hang in there. I really hope it gets better for you. You deserve beauty and happiness.
