I am a wife, mother, daughter, and sister…I am a faithful lover and loyal friend… I am a defender of what is mine… I am a control freak … I may forgive but I rarely forget… I believe in the power of saying “sorry” although I hate being the one to say it… I am a planner and like to live by a schedule… I am hardworking and believe that nothing comes for free… I am moody and sarcastic and sometimes bossy… Over the years I have learned to laugh more often and I love it… I’m a little hard to get to know at first… I am punctual and tardiness is an irritant… I am honest… I am trustworthy….I am domesticated… I am a clean freak… I prefer to pick my battles but I will always stand beside you in battle… I don’t mind doing things independently but prefer the company of my friends and family… I am impatient…That’s ME!
