    1. i am the youngest of 4 - 2 brothers, 1 sister & my parents are still married after 41+ years
    2. i got engaged to my hubby after just 5 months of dating (but we were friends for 6 yrs before that)
    3. i lived for 2 years after high school in Fort Chipewyan AB, a remote northern village only accessible by plane or boat, or ice-road in the winter
    4. i had my son at 16 & my daughter at 25
    5. i also had 4 angel babies; ectopic pregancies are the scariest & saddest thing to have ever happened to me
    6. i was born in good ol' saskatchewan (yes, all my halloween costumes fit over my snowsuit, the only traffic jams were slow moving cars following a tractor down the road, and i did, in fact, watch my dog run away for 3 days straight)
    7. one of my life goals is to travel on volunteer overseas missions, helping build clean wells & new schools & anything i can do to help out (more likely to happen once my kids get bigger)
    8. i purchase green & natural & organic & local as often as possible. im always driving to farmers markets, nearby farm stores, or spending hours in the aisles of the local grocery store, reading labels & looking for alternatives
    9. i beat the odds of most teen parents, and graduated high school & college, & never went on welfare even though at one point i was supporting myself & my son on less then $600 a month, paying rent, insurance, food, bills, daycare, gas, etc.
    10. i've broken both my arms, my collarbone, 3 fingers, my tailbone, 2 toes & 2 teeth. and cracked my head open & needed 6 stitches (yes. that makes me a clutz)

    1. I grew up on the shores of the Snake River.
    2. I worked in Ringling Bros. circus for 4 years.
    3. I can juggle knives.
    4. I can talk non-stop for hours and hours and hours and hours.
    4 (cont.). and hours and hours and hours.
    5. I sketch, draw, paint, sculpt, scrapbook and design stuff.
    6. I was homeless for 2 years.
    7. I have around 30 journals completely filled and another dozen that are half filled. This is not because I like writing in journals... it is because I like buying cool looking journals and making my own. So I have to do something with them to reason getting/making more.
    8. I have 2 degrees and am working on a third.
    9. I love Dungeons and Dragons and have played since the age of 7 and still do today... when I get the chance to get with friends.
    10. I do not really consider someone a friend until I have known them for 10-12 years... I have about a dozen of these friends. I like to feel comfortable that a friend will help me bury a body if need be. Even after a couple years, I don't think you know someone, after 10 years you really tend to know someone.
