"Sometimes we have to let go of the life we had planned, so as to have the life the is waiting for us"
Single for awhile now. No kids, but not by choice. I've survived my share of turmoil in the last few years, and am working hard to get back on my feet again.
I tend to stay close to home and close to my family, but dont mistake that for boring - I'm a fun, funny, a little crazy, silly, sarcastic gal. I'm genuine, nice and honest. I'm smart, a complete klutz and a country girl at heart. I love camping, fishing, road trips, the beach and NASCAR. Random drives, grabbing a 6-pack, a blanket and hanging out in the back of my truck; or a fire in the sand and enjoying the peace.
I am a full-time student majoring in Accounting/Bookkeeping. Yes, I'm a numbers nerd. I have worked most of my adult life in the construction industry, and am hoping to combine my experience in the construction field with my accounting, once I am finished with school. I just finished my first qtr with a near 4.0 (don't know the actual GPA yet)...it was a struggle getting thru this first 3 months. I'm a magnet for bad luck. First, my father suddenly passed away during my 2nd week of school, then the week after, my mother became ill (she's fine now...thank goodness), then I got sick - THEN, I was in a car accident and have been back and forth to the chiropractor/masseuse for physical therapy, so i missed a lot of school. However, I stayed on track and managed to make it thru...YAY ME!!! :) I am very proud of myself.
I am also in grief counseling due to lots of loss and tragedies. It IS my saving grace. I'm stubborn, and I'm a fixer - so seeing a counselor was NOT something I wanted to do...but there came a time where it was my last option...and it's been amazing. I am SO much happier and at ease...content. Peaceful.
With that said, if you have other plans that do not involve actual dating and possibilities of a relationship....move on!!! I will NOT allow ANYONE to shake up my "snow globe"!!!
Also, I recently - due to my extensive doctors visits as of late, have joined Weight Watchers. I am full-boar with it and loving it!!! I have a huge goal and along with school a huge feat to accomplish...and I'm gunna do it!!! I'm short, "curvy" (I prefer to say) and not athletic. I walk at the dog park everyday. It's slow going with my injuries...and I am an absolute self proclaimed KLUTZ!!! I will get hurt just walking...I've proved it ;)
Anyways, I'm babbling now...
I can hold my own in an intelligent conversation and probably talk you under the table...literally ;))
I carry myself w/ manners, confidence and a smile, even tho I may not feel it so much sometimes. I'm what I call an "innocent Catholic girl". Makes me laugh every time. Think about it; it's such an oxymoron.
I'm a good girl, but I can be ornery. I will not tolerate rude, hurtful people.
I am not materialistic. I despise shopping. Weird, I know... I'm a jeans girl, but always look nice and carry myself well. But, I don't mind gettin' a little dirty.
I'm not frequent drinker, but on occasion a cold beer is nice and wouldn't mind venturing into the wine world.
Simply, I'm looking for someone who has the same interests and dreams. Someone who loves me as I am, but makes me want to be a better person. Someone whom I compliment and whom compliments me. Someone who makes me laugh and can laugh at me or with me too.
I adore kids!!! I'm an amazing Auntie and would be an amazing Step-Mommy - and I haven't ruled out having one of my own yet - biologically or adoption. I lost my baby in April of 2011...so, the thought of going thru that again scares me to the core...but on the other hand, I don't want to be 60 and not have any babies of my own. Yet, being a mommy can be in many different ways...this needs to be an option with you...
We all have insecurities and some ghosts, especially at "our" age...take the bad with the good, but be willing to learn and compromise. I won't try to change you, so please don't try to change me.
Sometimes our silly little quirks can be charming, and sometimes simply what makes you love one another...
Say hi... ;))
