Hi I'm Shannon, or mama, or darlin, or Shannie Ree, or Zoey (to those of you who knew me during my brief identity crisis). I'm married to a man who is exactly opposite of me in every way. I like it like that, keeps the day fresh. Together we have two sons. I can't imagine having daughters, I was meant to parent boys. I think something about having the shit scared out of you daily and boogers wiped on you and bugs thrown on you makes parenting easier to cope with then pink princess dresses.
I grew up in Reno, I'm what we call a lifer. Meaning I don't plan to ever leave Reno, unless I won the lottery and could summer in Hawaii and winter Lake Tahoe. I am a creature of habit and I don't like to leave my comfort zone, that could also be because I have no direction and if I often end up lost. I'm the kind of person who can get lost on a one-way road. I work for my parents at their business which provides me the opportunity to bring my kids to work when they are not in school. I'm a full time employee and mom.
I am bi-polar and have long suffered from long bouts of suffocating depression while seeming to be functional from the outside. If you want to send me chocolate or cookies or any other tasty treats email me and I'll tell you where to send them. I'm a sucker for junk food! I don't censor what I write and I probably cuss too much. I have no shame, I am who I am. I don't change my thoughts, I take criticism well, and if you want to send hate mail, go ahead just know that I will post it and point and laugh at you! I can't dance, I'm not coordinated, I'm not athletic, I don't have any awards and I'm pretty plain. I enjoy reading books, cooking food (actually cooking not microwaving), and watching Big Brother! I listen to all kinds of music, and in fact, most of my life can be remembered solely by a song. The soundtrack to my life would include: Waylon Jennings, Tom Petty, AC/DC, Tupac, Offspring, Cher and so on, you get the point, I'm weird. I'm a vegetarian, I don't like the taste of meat and I generally don't like the whole animal killing thing. However I can cook the shit out of some meat for my carnivore husband. I like fresh food, good veggies and cheese. Potatoes and chocolate are my favorite foods. If I like you, I'll call you names. So if you hear me call you an asshole motherfucker, just know I have the deepest of affection for you!
