About Me

I love my life. Most of the time. I am organized but not neat, love homecooked food but don’t know how to cook, and wish I had a vegetable garden. I believe in spending time outside each day and prefer walking to driving, but I live 15 miles from everyone and everything, so I have to drive a lot. Knitting makes me tense but I knit one scarf each fall. I refuse to watch the TV news and wish I had more patience for newspapers. Since I don’t I often feel woefully out of touch. I eat ice cream every night before bed, except I’m lactose intolerant so I have to eat Edy’s Slow Churned because it has less lactose (light ice cream). I’m a semi-progressive half-lazy wannabe-better environmentalist and, as some would say, one smart cookie.

I’ve been married for two-plus years but have been with the hub for nearly six. Since you asked, we met riding bikes. We have a new baby who we somehow grow to love more every single day, even when we think we can’t possibly love him more. We live near Columbus, Ohio but both really miss home (Western New York) and hope to get back there someday soon.

And oh yeah.  I’m a Ph.D. student in literature.

  2. Hi:

    You appear to be a very intelligent professional woman enjoying a great marriage and a happy family life. Just the kind of person I would like to communicate with. My name is Robert and I live in Dallas Texas. I too am married and on June 15th of this year my wife and I will celebrate our 34th anniversary. That is 34 happy years. We have 3 adult sons and 2 grandsons whom we love very much. My wife is my best friend and it is our hope to go the distance and beyond if that’s possible.

    Would you agree that it appears that we are a part of an institution that seems to be passing away? Not the institution of marriage in itself but the part of the covenant where by we say “I do forever.” I suppose there is not much that can be done about this dilemma but I created a blog for couples dedicated to life long marriage. It would be an act of kindness if you visit my site, log in and tell me what you think? Please be honest I can take it; I am quite new at this. Thanks
