Facts About Me

  1. I LOVE Disney World. A LOT! I may cry at least weekly about something related to Disney. I may have cried yesterday because we’re not going to Disney this year, like we normally do.
  2. I have pretty extreme anxiety related to OCD (not the ‘humorous’ anal retentive OCD people pretend to have, but actual OCD). Some aspects of my life are certainly influenced by it, but I work very hard to prevent myself from letting it rule me or my family.
  3. My children are more afraid of the world because of my OCD
  4. Our family has ridiculous quantities of debt. We changed out mindset and changed our spending and now our debt over the last 6 months has dropped by a large amount.
  5. My mom, 2 cousins, and 1 aunt all had breast cancer before we were 35. Another aunt had it a little later than that. My children each have a chance of carrying the same gene I do.
  6. I may have fallen in love with my husband the first night I saw him, but then again that could’ve been the vodka talking. 😉 Eitherway, 13 years later we’re still talking,a ndhe’s still hot. So I’d say it doesn’t matter too much whether it really was love at first sight or just lust.
  7. I love to garden. I love it so much that last year right after chemo and surgery I decided to completely landscape our yard. Then I got 3 tower gardens for inside, a lemon tree, a lime tree, a palm tree, and a money tree. I need to have plants around me to survive. I think it’s a biological need!

    I’m so glad that your nomination of my blog brought me here. There’s a lot to enjoy, and even though our lives are quite different, there are some issues that pop up in nearly everyone’s life: getting control of debt, for example. I’ll be following your blog, though I may not comment every day, and I look forward to seeing what the others you’ve listed are up to on their little plot in the great blog-land garden.

  2. Thank you for sharing a bit about yourself – it’s nice to know you better! Great job on defeating your debt – a great accomplishment! Love at first sight is so romantic…my husband was walking his dog when I met him and I immediately fell in love with that dog- LOL 🙂 Thank you for the nomination, I look forward to checking out these other blogs!!
