Well, let me get a little more informative about what’s going on in my life than my “About” section. Well, I’m a Southern Belle and proud of it. I say “yes, ma’am” and “no, sir”, even to my nieces and nephew. I moved with my husband to Chicago in 2008 after we got married because he’s an Air Force brat and wasn’t liking the heat in Mississippi, or the lack of snow. So when his brother asked us to move to Chicago where he was living at the time, we said yes. Now I’ve changed my mind. ^__^ I like snow, but I don’t like a winter that’s as long as a southern summer! And I definitely don’t like living in a big city.
Of course, that has as much to do with the fact that I’m a Pagan who feels completely disconnected with all the concrete and steel around me. I’m really a country girl at heart and am looking forward to moving out to the middle of nowhere where I have land around me and no neighbors to worry about 24/7. I also am ready to have children and because of how I was raised, I just can’t imagine raising children in this city. I’ve seen people with kids (especially our upstairs neighbors) who either keep their kids confined or let them play on the sidewalk under close supervision (because anything else is negligence as far as I’m concerned). I ran mostly wild growing up because my parents didn’t have to worry about me running out in the streets or somebody kidnapping me.
Now, please, don’t get me wrong. I understand that for some people this is the only life they can imagine, and I’m not knocking it. For them. For me? Oh, yeah, knocking it…knocking over the head and burying it in the yard! ^__^ For the most part I try not to judge other people’s lives and lifestyles – kinda hard with my beliefs and the fact that my best friends are gay! But we’ll get to them in a bit. But I try not to judge, though you’ll find I do sometimes for things like drugs and kids – especially when you put them together! – because I’m pretty opinionated even when I try to be open-minded, lol.
Now, back to the gays. I love the gays. Mainly gay men, but that’s because of a bad experience with a roommate in college…not the fault of the lesbian community at large. I’ve been lucky enough to have a handful of gay men in my life and currently have two wonderful gay men in my life. They’re still in Mississippi, so I don’t get to see much of them and with them being in school we don’t talk as much as I wish we could. But when we have kids, they will be the fairy godmother and fairy godfather to them. (boys, not to worry, they aren’t together, their sexy single men…email me with a pic and I’ll pass it on ^__~)
Finally, I’m currently on day 17 of quitting smoking. This is my fourth attempt to quit, and the third time I’ve made the attempt with the help of my husband. I’m doing pretty good, though I still have trouble from time to time. Sometimes I just need to vent but don’t want to vent on my darling husband, so this seems like a perfect place to do it. ^__^
So, I might have overwhelmed you a little for a first post. Just stay posted for more stuff! ^__^
