Funky Facts About Me

In an effort to inform my few readers about myself, I have decided to write some funky facts from my past and present!  So here goes....

1.  I am an only child, but I had a foster sister when I was 6 and have always wondered how she is now.

2.  I was a tomboy, prefering to dig worms, fish, climb trees and play football with the boys to dolls with the girls!

3.  The summer before 10th grade I dyed my blond hair coal black, shaved it in back and spike the top.  I wore funky clothes and scared my entire school.  (Small town preppies in the 80's were not used to this type of behavior.)  I lost a lot of friends, but stayed this way until my senior year when I went back to "normal"!  I LOVED my look and wouldn't change a thing (even though I admittedly get nervous when I walk by these "punks" in the park with my young impressionable girls!!

4.  Interesting jobs - live in nanny at 19,  singer in two bands in early twenties.

5.  I am married, 9 yrs this month, and we have 2 beautiful girls ages 8 and 11.

6.  I love my work with special needs children! 

7.  My favorite musical artists are Martina McBride, SheDaisy, and Rascal Flatts (Major Country Buff)

8.  I have 2 cats, 2 fish and a hamster

9.  My all time favorite movie is On Golden Pond

10. Favorite color- Purple

11. Favorite food- Seafood

12. Biggest pet peeve- negligent drivers (drunk or otherwise)

13. Favorite thing to do on a spring/summer day- curl up with a great book outside under a tree! (while my girls play happily, with no fighting for at least 10 mins.)

14. Summer plans- breathe deeply, get moving and lose this weight, swim...DISNEY!

15. Write more!
