About me? You can’t change your profile name so it says mama of two but there are three. I tried to make my marriage work and it didn’t. I always think of this in a negative way, but I was thinking the other day it’s actually in my favor. It shows that I don’t give up easily (possibly a little foolish). I am dedicated to my commitments. Instead of rushing into a relationship to avoid being by myself I took this opportunity to discover and grow as a person. Figure out what I like.
I love being a mom. I’m dedicated to my kids. I like to be at their functions which works well with my job since I work at their school. I enjoy taking them to places and rediscovering life through the eyes of a child. They do come first because they are my family. It’s the four of us and we are a team. Not saying we don’t have room on the team, but we are a team and we work together.
I love agriculture. It was my major and I enjoyed the classes. Unfortunately it is the first program to get cut so regardless of my passion for it I had to choose stability. We have a small farm that has helped us to become self sufficient. Everyone contributes except the horses. They really are for amusement and to decorate the pasture. While I love riding it’s not easy to tackle riding with little ones. When asked why I have the farm the original answer was to produce income. Anyone who farms knows that isn’t always the case. So I changed my opinion of what the farm should be and self sufficiency was the answer. I’m not an extremist, but I do enjoy making our stuff. I think food storage is an excellent idea and not for the end of world, but for the unexpected.
I’m not a huge fan of describing myself because I don’t see myself the way others see me. I hear words like strong, intelligent, determined, dedicated, loyal. I see a person who has a job to do and does it. I try to accomplish it with a smile, but some days you fake it till you make it. I haven’t made it yet, but I am a lot closer today than I was yesterday and I’ll be even closer tomorrow. I am sarcastic and love laughing. I don’t feel I portray well in text mainly because there isn’t a sarcasm font. So while I have left many things out if any of it interests you I’m always happy to make new friends (I'm terrible at initial contacts) and possibly another team mate!
