About Me

Ooh, gosh!  You found me.  This is so exciting and nerve-wracking.  I don't know what to say when I'm put on the spot like this.  Okay, well here goes nothing.  This is me:
I'm a 20 something year old lady from a small, ruralish town.  I am married to the most wonderful man and my best friend from high school, we'll call him Broofy.  Together we have 5 kids, who you will find that I refer to by many names, collectively.  Singularly we will go with these names:

The Big One (or Mouth), 11 - cause she's the biggest and pretty mouthy.
Punky, 9 - Cause she used to have a natural fauxhawk :)
 Streaker, 7 - Cause we used to never be able to keep her dressed.
Baby Bee, 5 - Cause she's tiny and loves the color yellow.
And Boogie, 2 - Cause he likes to dance.

Facts about me:
1. I like art.  Not so much looking at art, but doing art.  Specifically drawings.  I don't think I'm too bad, actually.  I prefer portraits and fantasy to anything else.
2.  I sing almost constantly.  I think I'm okay, but I could be tone deaf, I suppose.  I don't have the confidence to sing around people, my throat closes up.  It even does so slightly when I press record on the computer.  I have serious stage fright.  When it's just me and the kids, we sing til our lungs hurt.  Or jaw, my jaw hurts cause I have TMJ Disorder.  Stupid jaw.
3.  I write songs too, but I don't know how to play an instrument.  I write mostly for therapy.  The one above is about losing my shell so that I can just be me without that half of me that never dares to stand apart.
4.  I don't smoke, no drugs, rarely drink... I'm pretty boring as far as your self-destructive habits go.  I just like sauce, meat, and coffee, so I'm kinda fat.  I'm gonna try to remedy that, but no promises and it's okay if it doesn't change too much.  I'm happy with myself as long as I'm pretty healthy.
5.  I used to be a master chef.  Only in my own home, but I rocked at making up new things and I loved to cook.  I don't now because my dishwasher has been out of service for a LONG time and I just don't have the motivation to clean just to cook, just to clean it back up.  I kinda miss it.

6.  I'm pretty creative when the mood strikes.  At least I think I am.  Maybe I just steal others' creativeness.  I dunno.  I make stuff, anyways.

7.  I love to take photos.  The most expensive thing that I own outside of my vehicle is my camera.  It's really the only expensive thing that I own.  It would take me a year or more to replace if it broke or was stolen.

8.  I Photoshop.  A LOT.   It's my favorite hobby I think.  I say "I think" because I am so fickle with my hobbies.  I swear that the eyes in the after piece are still Streaker's eyes.  I just stole them from another frame and placed them on this one.

Hmmm, 2 more to make 10.  Guess I should do that.
9.  My brain works in REALLY funny ways.  I can remember something one minute and then completely forget immediately afterwards.  Like I can throw in a pizza, then 2 minutes later wonder what we will have for dinner and order sandwiches, only to remember the pizza when I smell it burning as I sit to eat the sandwich.  Things like that.  I hate it.

Also, Mom says we may be ever so slightly narcoleptic.  Guess my grandfather had it.  It would explain why I have full on REM within a few seconds of falling asleep.  It will happen even after lots of coffee and in the early afternoon.  One time I fell asleep for mere moments and had a very long and vivid dream.  I know because I was watching the clock as I fell asleep.  It was freaky.

10.  I am shy.  Super shy.  Super, duper, duper shy.  If I need to go into public, I take a child or more with me just so that I have something to avert my attention.  That way I don't have to make eye contact.  Sad, I know.  But I am getting over it slowly.  It's been a long and hard battle getting to where I am.  I'm at the point now where I can ask a question to an adult without my heart beating out of my chest and I can actually smile and interact with kids that aren't mine!  HUGE steps.  I might even try to conquer comfortable small talk next with people that I don't know well.  I'm so gosh darn proud of myself :p

Okay, now for some fun kid facts because I know that you all are dying to know about my kids *wink*  I swear that this isn't me avoiding cyber eye contact.

1.  3 of them wear glasses, so far.  Weird, since neither parents ever wore glasses before recently.
2.  My kids call me everything: Mama, Mom, M. O. M, Ugga, and even my first name.  No, it doesn't bother me, because they do not mean it disrespectfully.
3.  There is never peace among them all.  Okay, almost never.
4.  They all love art and music.
5.  They are all blue eyed blondies :)
