And just like that…the weekend is over! These past two days just flew by! Jeesh!
Soooo, I read a ton of different blogs everyday, and I love getting to know the person behind the blog, so in an effort for you to get to know me better, I’m sharing 10 things about me you may not know! Alrighty, here we go…
1. When I was little, I had a pet goose named Quackers (I still love that name…hehe!). I got him when he was born – in fact, my dad helped him come out of his shell. I took care of him, took him on car rides and distinctly remember carrying him around in an orange towel. When he got older, he absolutely hated me and chased me around the lawn when I went outside. Funny thing is, he loved my dad. Go figure!
2. When I was born, I was crossed eyed (it was actually even much worse when I was first born). Obviously (and luckily), that fixed itself. Phew!
4. I’m a terrible sleeper and very rarely get a full nights sleep. I usually fall asleep fairly quickly (although not always), but I wake-up a few times a night, my mind starts wondering and I can’t get back to sleep until about an hour before my alarm goes off. So annoying!
5. I wear glasses; although only at night and when my allergies are acting up in the spring/summer and my eyes are irritated. The rest of the time, I wear contact lenses.

7. I talk to my mom on the phone while I’m driving to work every single day (without fail), and I talk to Justin on the phone when he’s driving home from work every single day (without fail). It’s pretty much part of my daily routine.
8. Four items that are always in my purse…EOS lip balm (love that stuff), deodorant (you never know when you might need to freshen up or in an emergency when you forget to put it on in the a.m. – oops!), Purell (germ freak here!) and Altoids (a must).
9. I’ve mentioned in the past that I work with crime victims. I’ve worked in this capacity for just about 6 1/2 years. During that time I’ve worked with victims and families affected from assaults, domestic violence, burglaries, thefts, murder, and in my current position, I work with victims of child abuse and sexual assault. My job can definitely be very rewarding, but also very trying and emotionally draining.
Did you have any irrational childhood fears?
What kind of work do you do?
