About Me

MY ADDRESS HAS CHANGED SINCE MARCH 2017!!! I have updated changes within the system. For Wishes, Tags, RAK's, Personal Swaps 'please' scroll down to the last page where I have updated my new address in the forums. Thank You!

PLEASE contact me before rating if you haven't received from me, I always send my commitments out on time, however human error can sometimes happen to, from and in-between. I rate the same day that I receive a swap and I will always send a thank you message or post on your profile for wishes, random acts of kindness, winner takes all games, etc... Thank you!

I am the very private and reclusive type, my favorite time of the day is when I am able to find a few moments to myself... I feel very uncomfortable in large crowds and am rather on the shy side. I am "VERY" old-fashioned! I tend to find my own faults and turn them into humor (being a full time mother those moments are what get me through my day.) I have a "really hard time" with blue, crude, lewd or nasty jokes...especially when they are directed towards women. I can be very sensitive to it and take offense a bit too easily and get especially angry when women make themselves a target!!! I really appreciate clever humor, though it is really hard to find... I resent people who are openly judgmental of those who criticize what they don't understand. I am a misfit in California... I daydream about relocating anywhere that it pretty much rains consistently... Boston, Seattle, England and especially 'Scotland!.' (Though, I'm not quite sure I could endure a the Scottish winters!) I "love" Scotland! I love the seasons, the friendly way you are welcomed, the culture and especially the history! I live near San Francisco, but I definitely "left my heart" in Scotland!" I am very simple and love being a girl! I 'Love' being surrounded by girly things!!! My favorite guilty pleasures in life are rainy days, books, perfume, bubble baths, pajamas, candles, tea, chocolate, an overly cuddled teddy bear that I named "Prozac".... and Katelyn (our adorable overweight Springer Spaniel)... I believe that the greatest gift given to us are 'time' and 'imagination!' OCH Having said all this, it is quite obvious that I am actually an overly quiet, boring and reclusive homebody! Oh well.... =o)
