About Me:

From the snow covered region of my birth,
To the sun soaked desert of my rearing,
And finally the mud filled land of my "adulthood",
I watched and grew, and learned to live,
And truly know what it is to be older than I am.
(I'm back in the sun again!! :mrgreen:)

So, I decided it was time to actually fill this in for real, instead of just having a crazy poem, though the poem does pretty much sum up where I have lived—Minnesota, New Mexico, and Oregon (and NM again :P ). In all honesty, I remember almost nothing of Minnesota, though. For me, life literally began when we moved to New Mexico.

Anyways, I’m not really the ‘homey’ type of female most others are, meaning that I can do most things that are considered ‘guy’ jobs. For example, I can change a toilet, fix the plumbing, change part (to all) of a garage into a room, rebuild an engine, fix your car, change tires, change oil, build an airplane, create and mend fences, and tame wild animals. But I haven’t yet learned the electrical aspects of those jobs. When it comes to cooking, unless I’m fully concentrating on the job (which it is rally really hard to get me to apply my full concentration on anything), I’ll mess it up somehow. A.K.A. I’ll end up burning the water. I’m also chagrined to admit that I have next to no maternal instinct. I don’t really have any excuse, except that babies kind of scare me, and I didn’t really grow up playing with dolls. Don’t get me wrong, though, I did have Barbie’s that I played with, it’s just that my games generally consisted of wars. I have to admit that the opportunities were there for me to learn to be a girly girl; I just wasn’t all that interested. It was just much more exciting to build an airplane or play with animals than it was to learn how to cook. It still is. But I am slowly learning to be (or at least act) girly, to a point, thanks to my friends here in Oregon. I do have a loooong way to go still, but I’m getting a bit better.

Hi, Laura! Guess what? We’re having a get-together here in Idaho…packed with fun, lots of outdoor stuff (and indoor stuff for those of us who prefer hot chocolate and a warm fireplace) Wink And, of course, plenty of visiting and fellowship! Sure hope to see you there…find out all about it here!
