I am a fortyish SAHM of four beautiful children; two boys, two girls; two blondes, two redheads.
I married my high school sweetheart. We have been together since 8 days before my 17th birthday.
Hokie-blood through and through. Orange and Maroon baby!
I studied Psychology in college, but I work in accounting. Part time. From home.
I have never lived anywhere other than Virginia. Hubby and I settled here and I don’t know if we’ll ever leave. I mean like live anywhere else.
On any given Saturday between late August and early January, you can find me glued to my tv watching the Hokies play–GO HOKIES!
I love to garden. I could be weeding, trimming, planting, watering, cultivating…as long as I’m out there, I’m happy!
I also love to cook. Although it has become such a must-do now that it isn’t quite the same as pre-kids. Back then I would spend all day cooking a meal for my hubby and me to enjoy.
I like to make things from scratch. I like homemade. It just seems better.
My husband says “it’s really hard to be you, isn’t it?” I tend to do things the hard way. And I like to do everything myself. I should really ease up.
I did not inherit my mother’s sense of style. I don’t get it. I got all the other stuff…
I have, however, inherited her way of mumbling to herself –though just loud enough for others to hear–when she is unhappy with something. I also inherited the way my dad speaks angrily at the tv.
If I were a crayon I would be tangerine. Isn’t orange just a happy color?!
I hover just below the Obsessive Compulsive Disorder threshhold where folding towels is concerned (among other things).
I am a dog lover. I just can’t seem to understand the cat thing.
God blessed me with a high metabolism, though that seems to be wearing off a bit somehow.
I thoroughly enjoy wine, especially cabernet sauvignon. I dig tannins.
I am living my dream life. This is what I wanted. I have everything I hoped for. I just didn’t know it would be so challenging, and so profoundly beautiful.
