10 things

I had 2 emails sent to me to repost this on my blog... so here it goes. I think it's pretty boring, but fun, nonetheless. Let's see what is on the top of my head of 10 things you may or may not know about me. This is a little out of my element since this blog is for my boy/family -- but hey I will give it a shot.

1. I don't eat meat, but don't consider myself a vegetarian. Weird? Yeah, I just say, "I don't eat meat"." I haven't for about 16 years.

2. I think a sandwich is a waste of time if the bread is even remotely on the road to becoming not fresh. The same with chips and salsa. You can have the best salsa, but if the chips aren't any good -- waste of time. Bring on the lard and some good chips! lol

3. I don't like leaving my kids. I enjoy being around them all the time, and relish in every moment. Yes, I need a break from time to time, but I choose to always be with them. I know these days will only be memories one day.

4. I LOVE going to the movies. I don't care how expensive it is now, I am a happy person at the movie theatre. I think that is what I miss most about having kids and not being able to get up and go and make my 2x week trip to the movies.

5. Inside I truly feel like an old soul. I feel like I should have been born in the 1800's, I get such a nostalgic feeling when I look at pictures, etc... from that era of time.

6. I secretely miss my maiden last name as my last name.

7. A few years ago, a little boy named Anthony came into my life unexpectedly at the mall. I still carry the sorrow, and helplessness as he lay dying in my arms. I kept him alive until help arrived, only to have him pass away 12 days later. The reason, CPR performed too late -- I always have the "what if" nagging at me when I see little boys his age. What if I helped him quicker, what if I yelled louder at the people around who stood to stare, and not help...

8. Komodo dragons and cockroaches make my heart skip a beat in pure, utter fear.

9. I very much dislike hospitals, and have passed out before from pure panic being in one. Along those lines, giving blood can have me on the floor as well. When I was pregnant with Gavin, since there was so many problems w/ the pregnancy, I was giving blood 1x week to check my hormone levels. Troy and I would drive 40 minutes to visit this ONE nurse who knew how to draw my blood without having me pass out. I would call before to make sure she was on shift. Wack - O! lol

10. Always wanted an "outie" belly button when I was pregnant. All I got was a deeper "innie", it looked like I had a doughnut under my shirt.

I hope you try it, that was interesting! Post 10 things about yourself that you may not think others know. Let me know, so I can check it out. ;)


  1. Was Anthony in an accident or was it a medical condition?

  2. #6, I couldn't wait to get rid of my maiden name, your now married name, hahaha.
    #8 Texas cockroaches, I remember waking up to your cries in the middle of the night, hahahaha

  3. Anthony at age 6 had a heart procedure, I'm not quite sure what it was. There was a language barrier between me and his parents. From what the doctor at the hospital told me, he was "free and clear" and had been living that way. He collapsed at the mall and went into full cardiac arrest. There were, what seemed like 100 people gathering around to "look". And did nothing. He was 12 years old.

  4. Stacy, don't remind me. Texas didn't have to prove things really are bigger there. Dang it! I still want to cry about that!!! ugh.

  5. I don't even understand how I finished up here, however I thought this publish was once great. I do not realize who you're however definitely you are going to a well-known blogger
    in the event you aren't already. Cheers!
