MY LIFE AS I LIVE IT

I'm a single mom with two great kids living near Dallas, Texas. This is my life; day to day things that are probably only important to me. This is my record of my ups, my downs and the road that I've taken along the way. For whatever reason YOU'RE here, I hope you find something you can enjoy and/or relate to. God bless.

All ~ I think it's extremely scary, I know people fall for this and then can't figure out how they've become victims. SAD...okay, and a tad bit funny.
