(previously known as Mr. Wonderful) - my husband. Currently Jeff is a inner city
highschool teacher and it working on a graduate degree in Computer Science. Everyday that
we are together I learn something new. That's what happens when you get engaged after six
weeks of dating and a marry a few short months later.
Elizabeth (previously known as
Wild Child) - our daughter. Elizabeth is almost three years old (Feb.3) and is constantly
challenging me as a parent and a person. She is an only child who loves Blues Clues,
Barney, building with legos, putting puzzles together, drawing and chasing the cats around
the house. On November the 1st I will begin Montessori homeschooling.
The Cats: Barney our very fat,
gray tabby disappeared, but we still have Cali, our evil calico. We recently added several
more kitties, only one of which we are going to keep: Thunder, a long hair silver kitten,
Boots the mother cat we found dumped in our neighborhood and her three kittens, Magick,
Boo, and Spook.
Stacy: We've been the best of
friends since we were eleven years old. She currently has her own online journal
Andra: We've been really great
friends since our sophomore year in highschool. We lost touch but when my brother was
murdered in 1996 she called me and rekindled our friendship.
Kathy: Another friend of mine
who is building a house in the neighborhood behind ours. Andra is building there too so
they will be neighbors. Kathy, like me is very opinionates, I'm surprised we've became
friends in 1997, she is very conservative and I'm very liberal.
V---: Formerly Elizabeth's
godmother and who I believed to be my very best friend in this world. She is now known as
the ice princess for her cold hearted attitude.
Kim and Trey: Kim and I have
been friends since we were fourteen years old. she recently married Trey and moved to
Birmingham. They are now Elizabeth's godparents. Kim and I have had similar things happen
in our lives. Her sister and my sister are the same age, her brother is the same age as my
brother, and we are the same age. Our fathers worked for the same company and were laid
off at the same time, we went to the same church and were in the same Sunday school class
when we were five and didn't know it. Our mothers died 12 weeks apart. There is more but
too much to mention.
MsEm: my niece. she is my
brother's child and her mother is K---.
Ed (or dad, step-dad): My crazy
step father. He has mental problems and wasn't the best dad while growing up but he was
all we had. Now he's greatly improved as a father since we are older.
Leo (or sperm donor): My real
father who is still alive and has Crohns disease. We reunited when my brother was
murdered. For two years I tried to keep the relationship going, only to find out he had
not changed and was still lying and disappointing me.
Kasey: My half sister, nineteen
years old. I met her when she was sixteen for the first time. She looks just like Tim.
Tim: My brother who was murdered
The Cools: neighbors who live
down the street who just had their first child together. She and I have become fast
friends. They like to party and do all kinds of fun things.
The Beaters: my next door
neighbors. Got their name because they spank their children everyday. They are very
religious and look down on everyone who does not believe as they do.
