Born and raised in NJ and now living in snowy PA. I have had the luxury of a good education and world travel. Becuase of a very hard working single mom that raised my younger brother, sister and I .
I was sadley raised in the same "Parent Drama" home so many other child are being raised in today. When I was a kid divorce was somthing people didnt do. But I was happy when my mom finally grabbed us and fled from my abusive dad.
Of course when I married in my 30's I repeated the cycle, stayed 10 years and had 2 boys. Now divorced and remarried to a sweet man. But dealing with step family issues. I enjoy my life again.
I worked in NYC for a while but just counldn't do the corporate prision anymore. So gave up the pricey address, new car...etc... So I could stay home with my kids and now I am happy just being " mom", 2 boys of my own 8 & 11 yrs and 8 yr old SD.
We have tried public school & private catholic school and now they are enrolled in Pa Charter Virtual Public school!! The 11 yr old is an accelerated learner. The other 2 are just little smarty pants so far . 2 young 2 be tested yet.
I love nature and like to cook, enjoy the arts and music. and making crafts with the kids. As a family for outdoor activies we hike, horseback ride and snow ski. I am usually on the computer reading and learning all the time.
I would say I am very spiritual but not religious. The dogma of religion isnt my thing. Raised catholic, I follow it formally to apease my family and their father. I have had my share of addictions and addicts in my life and never "found God". The God I worship was there all the time. I just chose to ignore him at times in my life.
I believe in Attachment Parenting before it was cool. Natural child birth with a mid-wife and nursed them both till they where 3 yrs old. I don't really yell or punish my children ever. I raise them to be thinking adults. I work to build them up us people and teach them. I try not tear down their spirits and souls with anger and hate. Speaking of hate, I hate 2 clean but love a clean house LOL , don't we all .
We have lots of pets and the kinda house you can live in and get dirty ," Homes are for self expression not 1st impressions" !!!!
Welcome to my kitchen, can I get you a cup of coffee?
