who is the kabmater?

Who am I?  I am a single 30-something woman who is lucky in family, business, and life BUT ridiculously by all accounts very unlucky with love…

For as long as I can remember… I have been in love with love.  I was the little girl who always dreamed of marrying my prince charming, having lots babies, and being great wife and mother.  Surprisingly, I was no princess or girly girl. I was the tomboy. I loved transformers, racetracks, Atari, dirt bikes, and just plain ole dirt. I’d do be best to dress like my dad (when my mother allowed) by wearing three ring socks up to my knees and button down shirts.  Although I was a tomboy, I still played with my Barbie’s when no one was watching and enjoyed wearing dresses.

My very first friend was a boy. He was my neighbor and we did everything together.  We were buds.  We’d race on our bikes, watch Popeye on Super TV, dig for worms, and make arts and crafts.  There were plenty of girls in my neighborhood but I picked the boy to hang with.  I didn’t jump rope, double-dutch, cheer on the sidewalk, or prance around the neighborhood… I spent my evenings after school, my weekends, and the summer playing with my very first “boy” friend. He was by definition my first “boy” friend but certainly not the first boy I loved or who broke my heart. That came much later in life…
