I am not really sure what to put here...I just celebrated my 40th birthday this year and I find myself newly single and starting over. I work in IT in a Palm Beach County Elementary School and I am currently going to school at night earning an AS degree as a Medical Lab Tech. I only have three more months of classes left and then externship begins!!! I live in the small beach town of Lantana, Florida. I have four children...
Amanda - 20 Lives with her boyfriend close by and goes to Palm Beach State College while working part time at a beauty store.
Samantha - 19 Also lives with her boyfriend close by while still trying to figure out what she wants to do.
Toby - 17 Is a senior and not sure of his college plans just yet...but I think he'll be at Palm Beach State College like Amanda.
Jessica - 14 Is in 8th grade and is waiting to hear if she has been accepted into the high school medical program for next year.
And then there is Bentley our new 4 month old black and white kitten who we love to death!
I love ALL paper crafts...card making, scrapbooking, stamping, and altered items. I love making cards and scrapbook pages with my girls and their friends. Before the divorce I used to have a large craft room that everyone said could be a store! Now I work off my dinning room table but I don't mind...I am in my own happy place.
Favorite supplies: Ribbon/fiber, buttons, paper...oh who am I kidding I love it all! :)
I also love photograhy but I am still learning how to use my Nikon D60 so I am not so good yet. I just got a new lens that I am having fun playing with! I started a 365 photo a day project this year the blog is listed above if you would like to take a look...but remember I am still learning! :)
I love music...I actually have an iPod and an iTouch so there is always music playing around me. I mostly listen to all types of rock...from 80's hair bands to prog to current rock bands. I love going to concerts and seeing live performances with my daughter Jessica...she is my concert buddy and she loves the same music I do, which is so cool!
Some recent concerts we have seen this year...
Trans Siberian Orchestra
Coheed and Cambria
With work and school I don't get to watch a lot of TV but I do DVR a few shows that I watch on the weekends with the kids. Some of my favorites are...
CSI - Las Vegas
MTV's 16 and pregnant/Teen Mom...(Jessica's fav)
We have over 700 DVD's...so I guess you can say I like movies. =) Mostly comedys, dramas, and chick flicks...I am not into the horror films anymore. I loved them when I was a kid and they really scared you, now they are just GROSS.
