These are the people in
my neighborhood. Okay family, friends, a few weirdos, a couple of
geeks, all the people that mean something to me.
Tony - My husband, the love of my
life. Tony is 27, born in January. He's a sweet man with a
hell of a sense of humor. Tony's a Star Wars fanatic, voracious reader,
lover of first person shooter pc games. He's also extremely shy.
He sits back and takes in everything around him.
It takes time for him to develop
trust in someone, which balances us wonderfully.
Mom - Obviously my Mom. She's
Mom to 4, a receptionist for a large orthopedic medical practice.
She's my Mom. We tend to butt heads on a lot of things. Her
and Dad have been married for 27 years. (and for those of y'all who are
adding, yes she was pregnant with me when they married, but that's a story
for another time.)
Daddy - Yes, I still call him Daddy.
Dad has been working for the State for 17 years now. He's a big guy
with a big heart. Dad and I disagree on a lot of big issues, but
we tend to get along better than Mom and I do. I am the spitting
image of him from my face to my body type.
Mary - My 24 year old sister.
Single, beautiful, looking for a good man. She's a middle school
teacher and a graduate of William and Mary. She and I have very little
in common, but I love her.
Katie - My 22 year old sister.
Separated from her husband, mom to the ever delightful Kyrstin. She's
a night auditor at a hotel. I'm trying to find her a good man.
Her and I have little in common as well, I love her though.
Richie - My 18 year old brother.
Single and staying that way. He's still a little on the wild side,
but deep down he's a good kid. He's trying to figure out who he is
in the world, but what 18 year old isn't?
Kyrstin - My niece born September
of 1999. She's the cherubic little girl that capture my heart from
the first time I saw her. She was born a tiny little thing (5 lbs
8 oz) and is still pretty little. She has blond hair, beautiful eyes,
and a smile that melts your heart. She's a smart, yet mischievous,
2 year old.
Granny - My Mom's Mom. My Grandma.
Granny is a wonderful woman who is extremely intelligent. I love
my Granny. She still works full time, volunteers more than full time
and is constantly on the go. I hope when I'm in my 70s I'm the same
Mom-in-Law Tony's Mom, I know,
duh, of course my mother-in-law is Tony's Mom.
Father-in-Law Tony's Dad, again,
Timmy 8, our nephew.
Timmy is son to Angie (see below). Timmy is autistic but is a very
intelligent little boy. His communication skills have improved a
lot since I've know him. He's also a giant. He stands aroun
5 foot already and around 120 pounds. He is going to be a big fellow
when he grows up.
He's also a sweetheart of a child
who loves his family and is very affectionate.
Angie Tony's sister, Mom to
Timmy. She's a web designer for an insurance company. She lives
in Pennsylvania with her boyfriend.
Tracey - Mom of 2,living with her
boyfriend (Danny), she's moving 3 hours away and I'm not happy about it.
We've known each other for 11 years and have gone through a lot together.
Danny - Tracey's boyfriend.
We went to high school together. Another good friend, who I'm sad
to see move away. He's the dad of 2 little girls.
Daniel - Tracey's oldest boy.
Cute as the dickens and getting ready to turn 13, is that right?
Oh, my God, I think it is. He's a smart boy, who is finally settling
into a school that can work with him properly.
James - Tracey's youngest boy.
Cute, wild, just like his Dad. He lives with his Dad, here locally.
Tracy - Mom of 6 (yep, 6) I've known
her for quite a few years as well. I very seldom see her even though
she only lives a couple blocks away.
Stacy - Very good friend, used to
be my best friend, but I very seldom get to talk to him anymore.
He's married to Jo-Anne, father of Lexi.
Jo-Anne - Mom to Lexi, another long
time friend. I haven't seen her in months, and she hates the phone.
Rachel - Old school friend whom I
see from time to time at the local watering holes. Crazy girl whom
