About Me I am smart and silly, and generally kind. I like to have fun and be social, but my friend network is a bit stunted at the moment. I'm currently a full-time mom to my 3 year-old son and spend a lot of time doing domestic stuff at our temporary home, a farm 11 miles from a town of any size. I miss living among people and activity, though the peaceful beauty and animal life of our farm are pretty special to experience. I used to be a student, then a fifth-grade teacher; wonder what else I'll be when my son goes to school.
