A little about me...
My friends would probably tell you I am loyal and have a wicked sense of humor. I am not ever mean spirited but if you have don't have thick skin, move on. I tend to see humor all around me. Another good coping skill.
I enjoy a variety of activites and am willing to try most things at least once. Although I haven't done it lately, I do enjoy bowling, pool, board games and most competitive activities.
With my schedule my own again, I fell back into my favorite childhood hobby which is reading. I own 2 Nooks and 1 Kindle and have over 10,000 books. I enjoy an eclectic range of topics from mysteries, paranormal. humor, etc.
Like most action flicks. My son thinks it is hysterical if The Mummy, Total Recall, Blade or Demotion Man are playing on TV, I will watch it no matter how many times I have seen them.
About the one I'm looking for...
I am looking for a fun companion. I am seriously out of practice when it comes to making new men friends unless I work with them. Be patient.
I raised my 2 children by myself and they have moved to Milwaukee to college a few years ago. They are great adults and my biggest joy in life. However, I would like someone more my age to talk to sometimes.
Any new friend should have a good sense of humor and be extremely courteous. You should be trustworthy and keep your word when a commitment is made. You should also be a good sport when I beat you at something. Ha.
My idea of a good companion or friend hasn't really changed much over the years. The attributes I value in any new relationship are (1) sense of humor, (2) kindness, (3) intelligence and (4) you have your own money. These are requirements. Everything else is just icing on the cake.

My Top Interests:
Family and Friends
My children are the most important people in my life. I find them entertaining and humorous. I would like them even if they weren't mine. We enjoy getting together and laughing over games, TV (Duck Dynasty, Pawn Stars & Storage Wars), Farmville and whatever is going on in our lives.
I am close with my sister and brother although they live in Milwaukee and I am in Janesville. We get together as often as we can. I also still socialize with all of my in-laws.
Health issues have forced me to live a more fit lifestyle. I walk more (dog loves it), work the treadmill and do some strenghening.
Nutrition is very important so hello protein and water!! Had so much turkey and chicken this year I could cluck.
Guys at work no longer tease us about taking laps around the building. It is good to get up and moving. Being more fit certainly gives me more energy and better rest. Of course, if I get into my Nook - all bets are off.
Shopping and Collecting
Ashamed to admit I am addicted to FarmVille. I play almost every day while relaxing and watching TV. Like reading, it is just a break from reality and helps me to de-stress.
