I have been divorced for several years which has taught me so many things about the world, life and about myself. I have found passions and interests I never would have invoked upon if I would not have been this position. At the end of the day I judge what kind of day it was depending on how many times I laughed or if I hugged anyone. Much like my dog I am loyal, loving to a fault, and love to walk, run and play at home, beach, mountains or anywhere. I love working with youth. Not just my own children but at risk kids who are often the hardest to get to know or love. I work at an “institution of higher learning-Go (mascot inserted here!!!) Did I mention I love sports? I like to participate in the ones I can, and love to cheer and yell for the ones I cannot. I love to dance –I did not say I am good- I just love to do it, and would love to take lessons if I could gather enough courage to do it on my own. (Probably not going to happen anytime soon.) I love the country. I sometimes wish I was born on a farm, but on the other hand I love to get dressed up and go into the city for a good dinner, activities, ice skating around Christmas, and a play or two a year.
