I like all kinds of music other than rap. Never could get used to it as it's the same beat over and over and over and.........you get it! I especially like old-time country songs and disco!
I like mysteries, especially medical ones. I like romance novels, but not ones filled with sexual stuff. I like books that are a series as long as I can easily get hold of all the books in that series as once I start reading them I can't put them down and hate it when the next book isn't available right away!
Okay, so I'm weird. I like to watch The Waltons, Little House on the Prairie, a host of home decorating shows, House, So You Think You Can Dance, The Biggest Loser, Stargate Altantis, America's Got Talent, Dancing with the Stars, Law & Order Regular and SVU and ER. I also like older movies and musicals!
I love to quilt, sew, do ceramics, knit, crochet, do counted cross stitch, garden (I have a large perennial garden), home improvement such as painting, stripping, staining and more. I love to do puzzles, especially Thomas Kincaid puzzles. I enjoy crossword puzzles, too!
I am a born-again Christian and a member of a Baptist church. I am not a "preachy" person, but have no problems sharing my faith when asked. I'm active in teaching Sunday school and I'm also an AWANA Cubbies leader.
I have a large family - 8 children (ages 6 to 35), 5 children-in-laws, and 9 grandchildren (ages 6 weeks to 17 years)! My family is my life. The only children at home are our 6-year-old identical twin girls. We are homeschooling them, using Sonlight for our curriculum. We also have 1 cat and 2 birds!!
My full-time job is being a stay-at-home wife and mother, but I'm out there working part-time every few years to make a little extra so I can help catch up on bills and buy up a few "extras" until the next time I decide I want to work. Taking care of the family, home and yard is enough work for me! I try to keep the house in order and work on the crafts and hobbies I enjoy doing, too!
I'm not a picky person and I'm easy to please. I'm new to this, so at this point I'd be happy to get whatever the swap says to send. Of course, I wouldn't mind the occasional "extra" if someone were inclined to send it! I have no known allergies to anything. Anything I get that meets the swap's requirements and I cannot use I can give to my children or grandchildren. I joined to have fun for me, but what I cannot use I would share with my family!!
I would not want anything that one of my children or grandchildren couldn't see or have, so what I'd want to get should be of good taste and character. Although I'd signed up for swaps for myself, there may be things I might be able to share with my children or grandchildren.
