I am an energetic, friendly, positive, playful, 37-year-old mother of two boys, 17 and 14. Being a mom is the most important and has been the most rewarding thing I've ever done. And I'm reporting that in their teens! They are a lifetime part of the package, even if they leave at 18. It's very important they feel welcome where I am.
I grew up in "happy valley" UT graduating from American Fork High school. Most of my family still lives in that area and California. I've lived all over the country, settling in MN about 9 years ago. I'm flexible with relocating.
I received my Bachelor's in Nursing recently and am just starting a new hospital position. Over the years I've developed some diverse interests from designing and building raised-bed gardens and home landscaping, to building tree houses, bicycling or sheet rocking the neighbor's basement.
I like a bit of exercise, bicycling, what a friend called "wogging" (not exactly jogging), swimming, or the gym. I love to play sports, however it brings out my nerdier qualities. I'm quite sure I'd hate to passively observe them, but I've never really tried.
I have a quick wit and ready sense of humor. A humorous approach to our lot in life can make the journey more enjoyable, or at least bearable.
My dream is to do medical mission trips around the world for a week or so each year. I just completed one to Guatemala for school which had other stove building and cooking teams. I would love to share a similar experience with a special someone as well as with my kids.
