About Me

Hi! Ok, a little about me. I really would rather poke straight pins in my eyes than write one of these, but I'll give it a shot. I am a crazy, sarcastic wife, mom, and RRT. I went back to work 4 years ago after being a sahm for 7 years. That was part time. Now I'm back full time and not loving it. It has been quite the rough transition. I have two kids. My son is 15 and my daughter is 11. My son and I get along really well, the girlie, not so much. I know this is just a season with my daughter, and it'll get better, but man, it's rough. My favorite child, however, is a 5 year old. He is so sweet and just loves to snuggle. He is covered all over in white fur and is named Moses. He is a purebred Maltese that I got at a shelter and he is the only one in the house that doesn't talk back! My other favorite child is about 18 months and we think he's a German Shorthaired Pointer. He's another shelter puppy and he was found and never picked back up. We love him. His name is Duke, but we call him Moose most of the time...;0P My hubby is awesome! He was even folding laundry this morning while I read the paper! Definitely a keeper. We met when I was 15 and he was 16 and we have been together ever since. I would be lost without him. He is truly my better half. We are still sappy sweet, sending each other love notes on facebook ad nauseum. We have been together 28 years. There is nothing in this whole world I would trade him for. I am a very lucky girl! This website is sooo cool. I remember having a Japanese pen pal when I was young and I sooo loved it! I have always wanted another pen pal from some far away place. I live in Illinois and just feel like it's so hum drum.
I enjoy reading and meditation as well as learning about other's traditions and cultures.

Favorite Music

I love all kinds of music! I will listen to just about anything. I have an open mind and love to explore! I do love, love, love Gary Allan. He is a country singer from here in the states. He is adorable!!! Wowza! I also love the Black Eyed Peas. I know, totally the opposite end of the spectrum. But, they are so much fun! I also love ANYTHING that is written and/or sung by Will Duvall. Remember that name!!!! You'll be seeing him soon! He is a fantastic person, musician and friend!!!!

Favorite Books

I cannot read enough books! I like all kinds! My favs are the Sookie Stackhouse novels.I read all of them last year in the span of about two months. I also love the Harry Potter series, Twilight, and I love love loved Eat, Pray, Love! I really got lost in that one. I LOVED the 50 Shades books...I know...total pop culture, but they really intrigued me! I am currently reading the "Body Farm" novels by Jefferson Bass. Again, a total contradiction in tastes, but I just love to read. There is nothing that can compare to the joy of getting totally lost in the pages of a book! I'll read just about anything!!!! I am always reading something, and if I find something that I particularly love, my family knows that they have lost me for a couple days.....

Favorite Movies

Oh, I am a true 80's girl! Sixteen Candles, Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink!!! Although not 80's, I could watch Overboard over and over and over and over again. I also like scary movies as long as the hubby is there to hold my hand! And sappy romantic chick flicks are fun too. I thought Ted was just an annoying movie and am dying to see The Conjuring....no pun intended....wellll, maybe. LOL UPDATE: saw this movie last weekend and it scared the pants off of me!!! HOLY BEJEBUS!!! I had to sleep with my back against Steve, I was so scared....and I wouldn't let him leave me alone anywhere. I even made him go to the bathroom with me!!! I told ya he's a keeper!

Favorite Television

Television...hmmmm well, there's really not a lot that I watch. I do love Criminal Minds (oh that Morgan is HOT, yes I love my hubby but hell I'm not dead!!! That dude would be hottttt in a tub of ice water!!!), Modern Family cracks me up!!!! Love the Walking Dead!

Likes

I am a paper junkie! I love journals and notebooks. I do scrapbook, but end up spending way too much money on stickers and paper. I have recently become OBSESSED with postcards! I love getting them from all over. I have been doing some swapping on postcrossing.com. I don't care what they look like, but I do prefer them naked...I like cute stickers and stickers with quotes. I LOVE postcards!!!! I love the total sappy touristy ones!!!!! Send me one nakey with a neat tidbit about where it's from or why you were there....what you did there....it's the nosy voyeur in me!!!! lol That will for sure earn you a heart!!!!!

Dislikes....but not really..

There is really nothing I dislike!!! I am a big kid at heart and adore getting snail mail. I love when there is something in the box JUST FOR ME!!!! Not a bill, or an advertisement....especially a postcard from somewhere far away.....I love it if you'd send me just a little tidbit on it....something you're thinking...something you're wishing or dreaming about, something that annoys you....whatever!!!! ;)

Hiiii! I never got anything from you for the Cards Against Humanity swap! Just wanted to give you a heads up, I'm assuming my spam folder ate it... Can you resend, sil-vous-plait? :3

chelle523 on Nov 14, 2014:

I am sooooo freakin' there! And hey - you know I don't mind a gripefest. Not like I haven't done that plenty myself - spill it, sister! And okay, I'm not going to send you a recording of myself singing "Let It Go"...unless I get super drunk between now and the swap due date...Much love, dear :)

Check it out, I am hosting a totally offensive "Cards Against Humanity" swap - it might just be right up your alley ;) (and it's super easy, too!) (http://swap-bot.com/swap/show/185193?new=1)

chelle523 on Jul 24, 2014:

Just wanted to check in and let you know I am a) still alive and breathing b) nearly finished with the novel that I'm supposed to be returning to you and c) feeling like hell that it's taken me this long but I'll make it worth the wait! Lol Hope all is well with you! Much love & hugs :)

chelle523 on Jun 24, 2014:

I basically crawled under a rock when I got back home, to be honest. Lol I never thought I could have such bad withdrawal after just 8 days! But I'm getting my bounce back little by little and I'm working on sharing a bit with you in our journal! Hope your summer is awesome! :)

chelle523 on Jun 23, 2014:

I'm here! I'm here! I promise :) Much as I would've liked to stay in Paris, I did come back. I am working on the journal right now to give you the whole scoop! I've missed talking to you :)

You are knighted!!!

chelle523 on May 12, 2014:

Just wanted you to know I am fully recovered from my temporary memory loss/coma in which I forgot to respond to your comment...Anyhoo, you are quite welcome for the Easter card! I leave for Paris next week and I shall endeavour to find some quality beaver cheese from the monks that live in the south of France where the wild beaver still roams freely. I've heard it's quite tasty. Have I mentioned that you are SOOOO my kind of weird? Much love :)

Thank you for sending on my postcard from round 16 of Adventures of the Travelling Postcard (the 3D lenticular zoom-in-on-the-Earth one)!
