Get to know me! Part 2

#1. I don't like to be late. In fact, I am rarely late. My daughter left this note on my pillow one night. It spent time on the refrigerator and was actually put in the trash briefly before my husband had it framed for me for my birthday.

#2. When I was a kid, I had a sheep named 'Crackers.'

#3. I love school supplies. I can't resist checking out the stationary aisle at the grocery store. For years, I dreamed of being a secretary when I grew up. I think it was just so I could play with school supplies.

#4. I REALLY love coffee. It soothes me. An afternoon cup of joe is my idea of pampering.

#5. I have a corner of my bedroom with two windows that I really wish had a window seat. Sometimes I almost talk myself into trying to build one, then I chicken out, or get wise. Not sure which.

#6. I hope (plan) to retire in 9 years.
#7. I have 3 cats. Chet is the oldest, he's a big fat dude. I like to call him 'Chubbsy Ubbsy'. He talks to us and he also like to sleep right ON TOP of me, all 15 pounds of him. Daisy is the middle child, she's a little wierd, but SO soft. Rosie is the baby, she's a Manx. The Manx breed has no tail. She's like a sweet little bobcat. Sometimes she sleeps on me too.
#8. This will sound crazy but I would really like to have a facelift. I don't care about looking older but my face sagging makes me look grouchy. I just don't like how my mouth turns down.
#9. Sometimes I think the best treat you can get at the grocery store is a new magazine.
#10. When I was in high school, my girlfriends and I went streaking down my street. We first went skinny dipping in the pool then we crept down to the end of the driveway, dropped our towel, dashed out into Stockton Road and back again. No one saw us. Whew!


  1. A sheep called "Crackers".....that is fantastic!

    My next dog, I'm naming Spyder.....its going to be a another husky then I can have a dog sled team.

  2. I have to ask, why did you name your sheep Crackers?

  3. She loved saltine crackers!

  4. I hope it was warm when you went streaking! (Now who would have seen you out on Stockton Road?)

  5. Now that's the kind of "get to know you" that I'm talking about!

  6. I love school supplies, too! Even though my daughters are young adults, I still get excited about the back to school sales.

    The note from your daughter reminds me of one my daughter left in my sock drawer. "You make me very MAD but I still love you. (most of the time)" She was seven years old and I wouldn't let her invite a boy to her slumber party.

  7. 1 -3 and 4 are totally me, too!

  8. I love that you had a sheep named crackers, wish I had one! Sounds like you had a wild side when you were younger, hahaha #10
