Facts about me:
The Random and Weird!

1. I hate bright lights. Our house needs lots more lighting fixtures so for now we have light bulbs with no covers in their place. It's always a thing with Steve and I because I hate it when he puts them all on so I'm constantly turning them off!

2. I learned to knit when I was 10 then never did it again until 3 years ago. My grandma taught me and I never caught the bug like I have now.

3. I never wanted to be a teacher. As a kid I used to fly to see my Dad every summer and I always thought I wanted to be a flight attendant. They were always so nice to me, one time I was stuck overnight at an airport and I got to stay the night with some that spoiled me rotten.

4.I met my husband country line dancing. I went with some girlfriends to the Cadillac Ranch in Southington and spotted Mr.Steve towards the end of the evening. I went straight up to him and asked him to dance with me, I am usually never that gutsy. Then one of my friends ran out to the parking lot to get his phone number!

5.I fell off a skateboard when I was 10 and cracked my 2 front teeth. My mum and step dad were dating at the time and my step sis was babysitting me. I decided to take off on her skateboard down the driveway and landed on my teeth. I looked like Dracula for the weekend until they could be fixed and hurt like heck!

6. I hated snakes as a kid. My grandma and mum were always terrified of them so then I was too. A few years ago I went to a nature center and they wrapped a big long snake around my shoulders and that beat my fear.

7. I dressed up for my first day of bootcamp. When I left for my Navy bootcamp in Orlando,Fl my mother suggested I not wear a skirt and I insisted on it. The next morning standing at attention at 4 am, the company commander asked me where I was from. I replied,"Canada, sir." He said "No wonder you're dressed for a goddam tea party!"
