First and foremost, I am a mother of 3 athletic boys (16, 14, and 8). I attend all of their events and love it! I also enjoy watching sports, from the Rangers to the Cowboys (really just all baseball and football ) During my free time, I like to read, socialize with friends, or just catch up on my DVR.
I can honestly say that I love my job. I am surrounded by 150 middle schoolers, who make my life an adventure everyday. Teaching (and learning) is a truly rewarding way to spend my day.
As much as I love my crazy, busy life, I do miss having a 'significant other'. I'm a true believer that you 'make' time for a relationship. Everyone is busy- from work to obligations to family commitments. The saying- ' you make time for what's important' - is a fact. I won't be an option. Relationships are work. I value the simple things in life- family, friends, and yes love. I want the 'extras' in a relationship- the just because hugs, kisses on the forehead, a good morning text, occasional flowers, etc.
And yes, I practice what I preach :)
