About Me :)


  1. I love my family
  2. I have been blessed with a wonderful family and 4 fantastic kids
  3. I work in a Pre-K through 8 school as an Administrative Assistant and an Assistant Computer Teacher
  4. I love kids
  5. I have no “blood” sisters, I do have a “sister of the heart” – we met when we were 4 years old, lived next door to each other, laughed and cried together, and have talked virtually every day of our lives – I don’t know what I would do without her
  6. My “sister” is 16 days older than me 🙂
  7. I was born in October
  8. I love my birthstone – it’s an Opal – I also love Opal sock yarn 😉
  9. I am told that I am very easy to get along with
  10. My very first boyfriend gave me my only Opal birthstone ring
  11. I still have the ring, it’s gorgeous
  12. His German Shepherd bit me in the leg badly enough to send me to the hospital
  13. When I was in 1st or 2nd grade I had a cat that my Mom told me was killed by a car – when I was 21 she informed me she had sent it to a farm because it was bringing home dead birds – I was heartbroken and furious with her even after all of that time.
  14. The beach is my favorite place on earth to be
  15. I have noticed that I collect mostly white rocks when I’m at the beach
  16. I’m half Italian on my Mom’s side/3/4 English and 1/4 German on my Dad’s side.
  17. I absolutely love Maine and would move there in a heartbeat
  18. I sunburn terribly
  19. I have had skin cancer
  20. I love Labrador Retrievers (chocolates especially) and have had three
  21. I enjoy chocolate way too much!
  22. My Mom and my Grandmother taught me how to cook – we lived upstairs from my Grandmother and I slept at her house every Friday night – she was the greatest.
  23. I am a very good cook (or so I’m told)
  24. The very first thing I ever knit were baby slippers, for a project at school, when I was 8 years old – I poked holes in my fingers with the tiny needles (my grade was an A)
  25. My mother taught me how to do embroidery when I was about 6 years old and I made many, many pillowcases – some I still have
  26. I enjoy riding in the car – it lulls me to sleep even if I’m not tired
  27. I can crochet much faster than I can knit, but I enjoy knitting more
  28. I love to cross-stitch, but only on linen
  29. Linen is hard for me to cross stitch on lately unless I have great light and my glasses
  30. Tatting was impossible for me to learn (it kills me to admit that)
  31. Complete strangers will tell me their life stories when I’m out – my children find this totally bizarre
  32. I have taught all my kids how to do various crafts but only one is a knitter – my son is the “origami king” – he can make anything out of paper – I can not
  33. I have green eyes, dark brown/black hair and very light skin
  34. I am a type A personality

  40. My mother-in-law comes on vacation with us for two weeks every year
  41. I have a hard time saying no when asked to help out and/or do something ~ it is very easy to make me feel guilty – I very much dislike people that attempt to get their own way by these means
  42. I love to bake
  43. I dislike decorating cakes ~ my mother made gorgeous cakes, 3 tier shower cakes, wedding cakes etc. She taught me how to decorate them – it’s just too tedious for me
  44. I learned to sew when I was very young and made a lot of my own halter tops, skirts and jackets (wanna guess my age now 😉 when I was a teenager

  63. I always wanted to live on a farm

  67. I have no tolerance for people that are not loyal

  71. I received the “Outstanding Typist” award in High School
  72. I prefer driving large vehicles and trucks
  73. I don’t lose my temper often, but it can be very ugly when I do – I am NOT proud of that

  80. I’m allergic to grass 😦
  81. I love the White Mountains in the Fall (Winter and Spring too!)
  82. I love the woods, but HATE bugs (I don’t walk in the woods often because of that)
  83. I dislike clutter but have tons of it in my house – it makes me CRAZY
  84. I find time spent alone to be restorative ~ it makes me a better person
