[The Oxford Project]
My family is my world. My brothers, my sister, my parents are my best friends. Growing up, I was a 4-H farm kid. We didn't have a lot of money, but we sure were happy.
I still live at home. I get up at six in the morning, shower, eat Frosted Mini-Wheats or Cheerios. Then I'm off to teach preschool. By the time I get home, I try to catch the last fifteeen minutes of Days of Our Lives. I like to read cheesy romance novels at night.
One of my great successes is graduating from college with a teaching degree. My dream job is to teach third-graders, but those jobs are hard to come by.
I believe I was put here to be a wife and a mom. I totally believe my soulmate is out there, but he's hiding. If I hit thirty-five and I'm not married, I'm still going to be a mom. I've had a great life, and the rest of it ought to be just as good.
