Lately I've found the need to take a break from people in my life who I know I just can't please. I am at a crucial turning point in my life where I am going to be required to make some decisions that will forever impact my family. Most likely these decisions will result in even more difficult decisions needing to be made. The last thing I need is to have people demanding that I keep them happy with the way I am living my life. When does it all just become too much?
Most importantly, I am known as "Mom." Or better and more loudly put, "MMOOOOOMM!!" I have four wonderful beings of the male species as offspring. I also have an ex-husband or two,and a dog. I now work in the ever-enlightening field of education. Deep down inside, I long to be a Private Detective, and a successful author. I'm one of those insanely-curious, okay nosey,imaginative,
research-loving, kind of people. I look at true friendship as a source of life-blood. It isn't merely an entitlement granted to anyone. Within those whom it flows it is deep, loyal, and long-lasting. I can be kind to anyone, but cautious, too. I am always problem-solving in my head- whether anyone else is aware of it or not. I can take awhile to make up my mind on things, but once I do no one can stop me. I'm a sentimentalist, and though I would like to say that nothing can take me down, unfortunately, my heart gets broken more than not. This has helped me become a stronger person- or at least helped my denial :)!! Oh yeah- I have this thing for using exclamation points in two's!! My brother would say it was my OCD coming out, but hey- it's never been clinically proven!!
