When I was a child I wanted to be an artist. When I was a teenager, I would cry myself to sleep because I didn’t know what I wanted to be. In college, personality tests said…TEACHER! Ok, that stuck. I am currently a teacher, wife, mom, and closet artist.
I live in my hometown and stay sane through gardening. Right now, however, the weeds have gotten the upper hand. I love to read books that give me something to talk or think about. I dream of projects that I want to do. My house is in a constant state of chaos.
My favorite breakfast — Bloody Mary
My favorite lunch — Gin and Tonic
My favorite dinner — Brandy Old Fashion Sour (w/ olives)
I am religious about walking my dog every morning. I love hot summer days reading a book on the screen porch listening to the cicadas sing. To get my ultimate top rating, a movie MUST make me cry. I read to my 3 kids every day at bedtime. I truly believe that tv is evil. I find it frustrating that I often find the “ideas” of projects/activities way more appealing than the actual doing part….lastly, I wonder how to be an excellent teacher, a pleasing wife, an attentive mom, an adequate homemaker WITHOUT becoming an overwhelmed, bitchy, depressed me.
Sidetracked Sisters is a place where 4 different personalities get together to laugh, joke, poke-fun, and solve the problems of the universe. I think I should have added something politically correct about celebrating family, honoring traditions, blah, blah, blah….but that is really not our style. So come along for the ride. Roll your eyes and stick out your tongue. See what craziness we cook up!
