Thanks for sharing. Glad to know you.

When I am anxious it is because I am living in the future. When I am depressed it is because I am living in the past.

I just joined this team, but I wanted to introduce myself and this sounded fun. :)

1. I'm recently single after being in three separate fairly long term relationships. (7 years, 5 years, and one year.) There wasn't much time between each of them, so it's really the first time I've been single in a LONG time.
2. I have no kids, but I have 5 nieces and nephews that I adore.
3. I have one cat.
4. I'm 5'10" and also wear high heels. :)
5. I have a great job.
6. I love to play volleyball.
7. I hate wearing just socks. If I'm not wearing shoes, I'm not wearing socks either.
8. I love to travel, and am leaving for a two week vacation tomorrow morning.
9. I grew up with 4 siblings, and my parents are still married (36 years).
10. I get bored easily, so I try to do lots of different and adventurous things.

Krystal, Heartland is my church of choice too. Love it there! Sadly, though... I haven't attended in some time. I really need to get back into a routine.

1. I'm 6 feet tall.
2. I have two boys, two cockatiels, three fish, and a husband of 10 years (next month).
3. I bought a violin last year in hopes of learning how to play it. It still sits in its case in my bedroom, unplayed. emoticon
4. I like to scrapbook... and am really behind on working on them.
5. I have crocheted several afghans in my lifetime, mostly as gifts.
6. I am a Harry Potter fan.
7. I am the PTA Vice President at my son's school.
8. My career goal is to become a Para Educator at my son's school. I've already passed the state test; I just need to wait until my youngest is in first grade.
9. I am a SAHM, baby-sit a 22-month-old girl, and deliver pizzas on Friday nights. During the months of January through May, I am a proofreader for a yearbook publisher.
10. I play Pokemon cards with my son, to help him with his tournaments and leagues.
