What I don't want
Facial hair - my teenage boys look forward to it - I do not. For boys, facial hair is a sign of maturity, becoming a man. For me, facial hair is a sign of maturity, becoming an old crone! Seriously, why do women have to go through this? I am not one to fret about body hair. I am not waxing my brows, my legs, my...etc. It's one thing to deal with extra body hair; it's not usually that noticeable. But hairs on my face? That's where people look the most! Where do women learn how to deal with these things? Do I pluck? Shave? Wax? Bleach? Truthfully, I don't want to have to deal with it at all. So, next time I'm hugging my son and he says, "Nice moustache, Mom," I guess I'll just smile and say, "Jealous?"
"There are scores of people waiting for someone just like us to come along; people who will appreciate our compassion, our encouragement, who will need our unique talents. Someone who will live a happier life merely because we took the time to share what we had to give." Leo Buscaglia, author and professor
I teach knitting and crochet at Jessica Knits in Scottsdale, AZ. I knit a lot of the store samples and continually learn new techniques. I crochet blankets for Project Linus and host a PL Knit Night the first Thursday of the month at the store.
I love reading, watching movies, and being the mom of two high school boys. My husband works at home which allows us plenty of time to volunteer for the high school marching band in which our boys participate.
