I am 36 years old, I am married to a bear of a man (looks the part too *G*) we have been together for almost 11 years now. I have two children Chuck 18, and Amanda (Mandy) 15. We live in a house that feels an awful lot like a zoo at times *LOL* Since we have two cats, Sammi (female), and Sara, we have three dogs Shadow who is almost 16 (in doggie years 112), Happy, and Pepper... last is two aquariums of fish .
I have several hobbies, which include the internet, and chatting, no doubt *G* I also love to read fantasy fiction (wizards, unicorns, dragons) I know what you were thinking for shame *G* I love being in the country, fishing, camping, and hiking, and just plain getting away from the city *G* I collect several things, and some of them will prove i have never quite grown up, and really have no plans to ever *G* I collect teddy bears, hand puppets, sand clowns, unicorns dragons, pigs, and Noah's arks...so if you haven't guessed my puter room is really quite full *LOL* But is a comfortable place to for all ages *S*
Some of my likes about the people, I like people that have a good sense of humor, that can joke and laugh, even if it is at themselves from time to time. I like people who are not afraid to stick up for what they believe in that will not back down, just because things get heated *S* I like people who know what they want, and go after it, but don't hurt others in the process. People who can enjoy the simplest things in life, a sunset, a rose in the morning sun, a walk on the beach, and the smile of a child....these are the people i want in my life, that don't let life, make them bitter, and angry, but can find happiness within themselves*S*
Things I find intolerable, with in some people I have met, pushiness, and only being concerned with themselves. Hurting others in the process of getting what they want. People who destroy things just because they don't understand them, or for the sake of greed. I detest people that hurt children they have in my opinion no right to exist. People that come on too strong that bully others into doingf what they want them too. Negative attitudes have no place in my life, it is too short to always be un-happy, or angry.
For the most part I enjoy life, I have had my hard times, as we all have, but I have always believed that each of has the ability to make our own happiness for it comes from within, I do not rely on others to make it for me. If I can't see to my own happiness no one else will. I believe we all make the choice of how our lives will go...and should have to answer for the wrong we do, I don't believe in blaming, things on my past, I am an adult, and have control over the things I do, and the past should stay just that...the past...
Thank you for taking the time to get to know me, even if it is only a little. If you would like to get to know me better, look for me in Pow Wow, or sometimes in Thirtysomething chat..

We are but one thread within it.
Whatever we do to the web, we do to
All things are bound together.
All things connect.
~People~ Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some people move our souls to dance. They awaken us to understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom. Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon. They stay in our lives for awhile, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never, ever the same. [Anonymous]
May you find serenity and tranquility in a world you may not always understand. May the pain you have known and the conflict you have experienced give you the strength to walk through life facing each new situation with courage and optimism. Always know that there are those whose love and understanding will always be there, even when you feel most alone. May a kind word, a reassuring touch, and a warm smile be yours every day of your life, and may you give these gifts as well as receive them. May the teachings of those you admire become part of you, so that you may call upon them. Remember, those whose lives you have touched and who have touched yours are always a part of you, even if the encounters were less than you would have wished. It is the content of the enounter That is more important than its form. May you not become too concerned with material matters, but instead place immeasurable value on the goodness in your heart. Find time in each day to see beauty and love in the world around you. Realize that what you feel you lack in one regard you may be more than compensated for in another. What you feel you lack in the present may become one of your strengths in the future. May you see your future as one filled with promise and possibility. Learn to view everything as a worthwhile experience. May you find enough inner strength to determine your own worth by yourself, and not be dependent on another's judgment of your accomplishments. May you always feel loved. These Are My Wishes For You

A Creed to Live By
Do not undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others. It is because we are different that each of us is special.
Do not set your goals by what other people deem important. Only you know what is best for you.
Do not take for granted the things closest to your heart. Cling to them as you would your life, for without them, life is meaningless.
Do not let your life slip through your fingers by living in the past nor for the future. By living your life one day at a time, you live all the days of your life.
Do not give up when you still have something to give. Nothing is really over until the moment you stop trying.
It is a fragile thread that binds us to each other.
Do not be afraid to encounter risks. It is by taking chances that we learn how to be brave.
Do not shut love out of your life by saying it is impossible to find.
The quickest way to receive love is to give love; The fastest way to lose love is too hold it too tightly; In addition, the best way to keep love is to give it wings.
Do not dismiss your dreams. To be without dreams is to be without hope; To be without hope is to be without purpose.
Do not run through life so fast that you forget not only where you have been, but also where you are going. Life is not a race, but a journey to be savored
If you talk to the animals they will talk to you and you will know each other. If you do not talk to them, you will not know them, And what you do not know you will fear. What one fears one destroys. -Chief Dan George-
