Who I Am…

I’m Claire.

I’m an American living abroad…this time in Mexico City, Mexico. I feel like I’m in the beginning stages of chronic expatism. Is that a word? If not…call Webster because it is now. I’ve also lived in Brussels, Belgium and Geneva, Switzerland too.

I like to write, but I’m not a “writer”. I didn’t major in English during college, but I do try to use proper grammar. I’m a cynic. I can’t help myself. Love me or hate me, it’s who I am. I like to swear. Sometimes too much, but I’m learning to keep it in check…most of the time. So, try not to be offended…we’re not trying to solve world peace here.

I love my family (the hubs and two girls) and friends fiercely…they are what make me tick. They are also what make me bat shit crazy on occasion.  Oh, and not to forget my dogs…Chica (The Boxer) and Paco (The Schnauzer Mutt).  They are my protectors, my heating blankets, and my companions.
