Birthdate:Apr 17
Location:Vermont, United States of America
A Few Pertinent Details:
I am a full-time mom who teaches swimming in the summer and volunteers to teach French in our elementary school. I have four kids, two adopted from foster care. The oldest was born in 1985, the youngest in 2002. She was a preemie and weighed 1 lb. 10 oz. at birth! I walk or run for at least an hour everyday. I used to weigh over 90 pounds more than I do now. I used to read voraciously, and someday I will again, but right now my youngest (a boundless well of energy and initiative) takes too much watching. I run a roach motel for books. Books check in. They don't check out. I wanted to be an Egyptologist when I grew up, but somewhere along the line I wandered off the sandy path. I have lived in Greece and Palestine, but only speak simple table Arabic now.

Just So You Know:
I seldom comment on the fics I read, because I have a hypercritical inner editor who chews through the restraints all too often. It's the result of growing up with an English prof for a dad, I guess. The results are seldom pretty. Please, therefore, excuse my lurking tendencies. I am learning to give feedback more often, though, on the grounds of "Do unto others..." I am naturally shy, although I sometimes overcompensate, but I am generally a friendly and conciliatory soul, so feel free to friend me if the lack of back-chatter won't bother you.

My Own Personal Happy Ending:
Is my husband, nicknamed Mr. Bear.
