About me

Location St. Louis, Missouri
Introduction I'm a 33 year old lady with awesome family and friends and so much going for me, its crazy...except, I just happen to be living in the body of an 80-year old. My darn kidneys are freakin lazy and stopped working way back in 1996. Fortunately, my momma gave me one of hers and that worked for about 10 and a half years. But gosh darn it if that one didn't stop working - I think maybe my other organs formed some kind of cult that doesn't include kidneys. So, now I'm a young, vibrant 33 year old woman who seems to have it all...but I also have to go to dialysis three times a week for four hours a day and have my blood cleaned. This renders me exhausted, sick and crabby (although I think the crabby part comes naturally!). I'm on the transplant list and many friends and family have come forward to be donors - we just haven't found my perfect match, yet! I know my kidney is out there and I'm closer today than I was yesterday, right? That's my life, right now!
Interests cupcakes, waffles, blond boys named Brian, any kind of music, eating outside, singing at the top of my lungs in the car, Cheeseburgers, socializing, watching movies, camping, shopping, cooking, having dance-offs, laughing, yoga, sleeping, the World Champion Cards, eating, making people laugh, surprises, massages, meeting new people, theatre, non-fiberglass poles
Favorite Movies I like comedies, non-fiction, foreign, or mysteries. No scary movies...period! I loved Snatch, anything with Will Ferrell or Adam Sandler. I love any movie where stuff happens that I wasn't expecting, like twists - not scary guy around the corner. I'm learning that I haven't seen very many movies. At least none of the "classics."
Favorite Music Anything. Seriuosly anything. If I can sing to, dance to it, chill to it, slow dance to it, make cookies to it or clean to it...I'm in.
Favorite Books I like books.
