I'm a little punk rock, and a little Martha Stewart. I married my best friend in July '07. My husband is in the U.S. Army, and we are a very patriotic family. We have two children; my son is in 3rd grade, my daughter is in 1st grade. It seems I'm always in the car; I love to drive. I live in the Bay Area, California, but I drive to Oregon to go camping every summer. I am Christian, though probably the most tolerant person you'll ever meet. I'm acutely aware that I am the last person that should judge anyone else. My husband is a heathen atheist ;) lol I have a very sick and twisted sense of humor; it is near-impossible to offend me. My desk is only for art & crafts; I love the freedom my Powerbook offers me. It seems that after 10 years, I have finally kicked the cigarette habit to the curb. I had my last cigarette on Feb 27th, 2009. We live in a very liberal area, and have actually been physically assaulted upon admittance that my hubby is in the Army. More than once. I am bitter, and jaded towards hippies, and bleeding hearts. This area we live in is so hypocritical, they will actually kick your ribs in while scolding you for harming others. It's sad; I know so many lovely hippies....but, I just can't handle the stupidity of this particular Californian breed ~.^ I'm in love with military history, from Rome to Vietnam, but especially the Civil War.
