Birthday: 21 January, 1973
Bio: I'm a stay at home mom of 3: Abby, 8; Sam, 6; and Kady, 3. I'm 32 years old and have been married to my husband, Paul, for 12 years. We live on our 40-acre wanna-be ranch on the outskirts of town. We have a retarded chow/lab mix dog named Jake, 5 ducks, and occasionally whatever other varmit makes its way onto the property on any given day.
Interests: I consider myself a redneck diva in the most literal sense. While I am redneck enough to drive in a demolition derby, watch professional wrestling, yell at my kids in Wal-Mart, frequent indian gaming facilies and various other white trash-y type activities, I am still yet dignified enough to refuse to wear air brushed decorated clothing. I also will never show a neck full of hickies in public, I faithfully brush my teeth daily, I have never cooked a squirrel for dinner. I am fiercely dedicated to raising my children to the best of my abilites. I'm not saying I'm in the running for Mother of the Year - hell, I doubt I was even nominated - but I do my best and think I've done a pretty good job so far. My children are strange and I am the first to admit it. But you'll be hard pressed to find 3 kids more adorable, hilarious and downright fun to be around. And yes, I'm blatantly biased. I used to be a book worm, but for the last 8 years my reading has leaned more toward the Dr. Seuss venue. When I do get a rare haven of opportunity to read something that doesn't have illustrations on every page, I lean toward the dark, macabre and downright scary. Though I also have a penchant for the Mitford books, which is just about as un-macabre as you can get. Go figure. I'm versatile. Yeah that's it. I have read Catcher in the Rye more times than I can remember. I finally read A Clockwork Orange just a few months ago and was mesmerized by it. Romance novels just piss me off. I have driven in one demolition derby and have every intention of driving in many more. If I ever win the lottery (which Oklahoma is on the verge of getting - whoo hoo!) I want to race arena trucks. If I don't win the lottery, I'll stick to smashing the hell out of junk cars. Really I'm okay with that, even though the lottery thing would be nice. I have an odd sense of humor and vary from dry and sarcastic to utter slapstick, sophomoric pratfalls. Again, I'm versatile. I love my family and would go to the end of the earth for them. From my husband, children and mother all the way down to the 4th cousin 5 times removed. They're family no matter how many times you remove them. And sometimes you so wish you could remove a few of them. I am exhausted about 85% of the time, but I love the life I am leading. Sure, the money ain't great, but the benefits are outstanding. Sometimes I wonder what it'd be like had I gone a different route, married someone else, actually finished more than one semester of college... but in the grand scheme of things, I've done just exactly what I was supposed to do. Enjoy reading my daily adventures, will ya? And for the love of God, COMMENT!!!!!
