I could not get my closest family or friends to sum me up for this. So much for "objective." And I'm still becoming; finding and fighting my way through days and experiences. But now WHAT I am hasn't changed that much in a while. We can start there.
I am and have been the proud wife of a wildland firefighter and avid hunter since 2005. And he's still the best person suited to deal with my nuances. Idiosyncrasies. My brand of crazy.
I am a proud MOM twice over. My son (2011) is awesome at baseball, better than I was in school, can rock a mullet and make it cool. My daughter (2017) is fearless, caring, and happier in the mornings than I have ever been in my life. And when they're not testing my patience, they're melting my heart.
We never seem to be without 4-5 German Wirehaired Pointers, so I'm also the Dog Mom.
I am a federal employee doing digitized mapping, or GIS (Geospatial Interface Systems). I am a resident of one of the only Republican counties in the state of California.
I am a firm believer in God, hard work, discipline, and accountability.
