About Me

I am the wife of one hardworkingsonofagun and the mother of two very smart, beautiful, loving and caring preteen girls. I work in the medical field at a medium sized community hospital. 12 hour shifts but only 3 days a week. I am NOT a nurse. I am a Respiratory Therapist.

I enjoy creating, home improvement and quilting. I have recently been spending time stripping multiple layers of wallpaper off our 115 year-old home's interior walls. (causing me to have some carpal tunnel symptoms...) I am trying, slowly, to create a breezy cottage-like Better Homes and Gardens type feel to our home.

I am regularly inundated with 4th and 6th grade girls..my home seems to be a favorite gathering place for my kids friends and I wouldn't have it any other way!

I enjoy simple cooking...usuallly nothing more than salt pepper chili powder and garlic come out of my spice cabinet. I cook by "feel" the way my mom and aunts taught me. I have just started to try to learn how to bake bread. I have had some success (and some fails!)

Favorite Books

This past summer, I finished the Harry Potter series and loved it! I am wondering what I can read now that is similar is style and subject. I am now on the waiting list at the library for the book she wrote for adults. Any other ideas? The Lemony Snickets series was suggested,what do you think?

I have read almost every Stephen King book there is. (this is what I thought, then I discovered the slew of short stories he has out for e-readers!)

I like LOOKING at magazines just to try to find home renovation ideas. I rarely ever READ them!

Favorite Crafts

I enjoy sewing small bags, quilting (although lately my sewing machine has been quiet, and my sander has been noisy!)

I do a little stamping, some small crafts with the kids..everything really, not much I don't enjoy from time to time.

I just finished making some Ball Jar hanging lights for over the sink in the kitchen. Easy, and cool!

Favorite Television

I spend most of my tv time watching DIY and HGTV type shows. My husband likes CSI and those kind of shows..so I watch them sometimes even if I don't want to. I also end up watching Spongebob, Good Luck Charlie and other kid stuff like that. Lately the family has been on a "Reba" kick!

Are you ready for some FOOTBALL??!?!

Likes (and notsomuch)

MY "LIKES":

I LOVE Petunias, but can't find seeds...do you have some you can "lend" me? (moosephysch sent me some..thanks! (I could always use more!)

I like my black lab, Charlie.

I appreciate a really good stethescope...good guacamole...silver hoop earrings...classic jolly ranchers...cheesy 70's and 80's pop music...diet dr. pepper... thrift store furniture...comfort and getting really really good bargains!

MY "NOTSOMUCH".

ALLERGIC to Cinnamon/cinnamon smelling things.

I do not like snottiness, ongoing laziness and lack of common sense.

I don't like other people's trash.

I don't like getting stuff in an envelope without a personal note or messsge of some sort.

Not so into religious items.

Not so into "beachy" items.

I do like black, but not so into gothic stuff.

I don't like coffee.

Not so into purple.

Don't like Fred (the hamster).

Not so into Charlie's shedding!

Comment: Neat idea on the Tree. Thank you for the card and the idea. Note: the red paper separated from the card. Try another type of glue
Response: The cards were actually made by my daughter's class last year when they were trying to earn money for the Washington Dc trip.easy...but time consuming!

Hi, Carrie! I mailed a postcard to you today for Week 4 of the Six Week Snail Mail Swap #4 . Thank you for the lovely rating you left for me for this swap today, but it left me confused as the swap is not ended yet. :) Did you mean to go ahead and leave a rating for me, or was this rating for another swap?
