This is a rare public post in my journal; I went friends-only a few years ago and haven't regretted it, but I would love a few wonderful new friends, and so I need to open up to everyone for that to happen, and let you open up to each other in the process!
My name really is Jenny. I'm a mom of two boys, 7 and 4, happily married for almost 17 years to tom_vroom, who almost never posts. I am so far to the left that I really did almost move to Canada; unfortunately, Canada made it a lot harder to get in right as I was ready to apply, so that didn't happen. However, it was for the best, since I am now living with my mother, which is good for all of us, and she would definitely not have wanted to come to Canada.
Now that both boys will soon be in school full time, I'm going to pick up with the rest of my life again, which means going for my Master of Divinity and becoming a Unitarian Universalist minister. (I still consider myself an atheist, so...not your typical minister, but, then, UU isn't your typical religion!)
I'm also a bird oracle and wise woman. I wrote my own deck of bird oracle cards and do monthly one card draws at wrenstarling, and I practice (or will, when I actually find time and reason) magic, not Wiccan, more folk-magic style. I'm weird, yes, but I do have one foot at least firmly planted on the ground, promise!
I mostly talk about what's going on in my life, etc. The people who read my LJ are my friends, my family, and my support circle. I rely on them and they rely on me. I believe relationships involve interaction, so if you are a lurker/watcher, it's probably best not to bother with me, as I'll unfriend you in due time. I give people a good try, but if we don't connect, I won't try to force it; life is too short.
I used to post daily, but my life has gotten so busy that I've gone almost a week without posting, and expect I'll hit a full week at some point in the future, but I hope not to get any worse than that. :)
So, welcome! Feel free to add me and I'll add you back unless I see a dealbreaker somewhere in your info, and add each other. My friends, this will only work if you point people here, so please do so!
