This is my first real forray into the internet dating world. Definitely would like to think I'm an intellectual, or at least intellectually inclined. I dislike these things - the describe yourself. I'm at times socially awkward and other times totally at ease and in fact, mildly charming. I'm not really interested in reliving my youth, mostly because I was stupid... often. I'm in my mid-thirties now and if I were to meet the right person, someone who could love my daughter like their own (yeah- my kid will always come first, no question), I would definitely like to have another child.
I am the 8th out of 11 kids, a his/hers and ours smorgasboard (I so mispelled that). I'm originally from NH and have been in the DFW area (Plano and N. Dallas) for a little over 5 years. Two of my sisters also live in the area, which is pretty cool. I was the last of the three to come out here.
I am a reformed grammar Nazi, mostly because sleep deprivation from being a Mom has annihilated my memory. I used to listen to books on audio and knit and honestly, that's possibly the only thing I truly miss about my single, kid-free days. Well, and maybe being able to roll out of bed and leave in 15 minutes if necessary. LOL
I'm not a high-maintenance kind of girl. I clean up well, but outside of basic hygeine, I'm just not that concerned with my appearance. Part of it is laziness, the other is lack of time and I just cannot justify spending the kind of money on clothes that I would have to to be stylish. Mostly, it's laziness.
I enjoy a wide variety of music. My first concert was the Cure, my last was Willy Nelson and the Dallas Symphony Orchestra (he's mostly Americana folks, not country- there is a difference!). Due to see my first real concert since the All for You tour by Janet Jackson tomorrow night- Florence and the Machine. Fairly excited.
Abandoning ship on this rough draft for now since the minion is waking.
