so that is me in a dressing room. i'm also addicted to clothes. any new variation on the jean or t-shirt and i'm on it. a real glamour girl.
ok, a few things you may not know about me...
*i'm a mom and i'm crazy about my seven month old baby boy. i take attachment parenting to the edge: he sleeps in the bed with us, i breastfeed all day and all night, he can be found on my body 90% of the time. i love it. i don't relate with moms who have to take their kid to daycare and then put them in a crib to sleep at night. i'd be lying if i didn't say that i think my way is better. oh, and i'm a know-it-all. my mother called me this for years and it's really true.
*my first real job was in the clothing business, a manufacturer that only had an opening for a receptionist. i answered phones until they let me have the assistant design position. oversized tees with matching stirrup leggings were all the rage...i stayed in the biz for ten years, long enough to see those leggings burn, and work for a couple of really awesome companies.
*i love bluegrass music. my grandpap's influence. i pretty much only like the stuff he likes. but i like lots of other music as well. just ask the string of boys i dated before i married B. all musicians. i'm nuts that way.
*i'm allergic to the sun. break out in blisters all over my hands and arms. i should probably live somewhere that is not california, but it is home.
*i pour milk over my ice cream. just like my dad. gross out if you have to, but i think its yummy. little icy bits form and swim around in the milky goodness before i slurp em up.
*my verbal skills are no better than my writing skills. so if we ever speak on the phone, this is the best you can hope for.
*i love animals. i also don't eat them. (except i did have clam chowder in santa monica weeks ago. i did ask B if he thought clams had feelings or if they feel pain. he didn't know, so i went for it. shame it wasn't worth it.) animals, their presence and behaviors make up a significant part of my spiritual life.
that is SO plenty about me. its all i can take, really. i'll post pictures of miles next which is why you come here. i'm onto you.
perking up a bit around here. glad of it.
