Behind the Scenes: Five Things about Me

I try to limit discussing my personal life on Scrapworthy Lives. There are plenty of blogs where people share a great detail about their life already out there. I realize though that I need to share a bit more of myself in order for readers to connect with me better. Who am I? You do get a snapshot of me on my about page, but that’s pretty much it. So, without further ado, here are five things about me:

I recently became a runner. I am not planning on running a marathon and have little interest in running any races. I might run with my friend in a 5k or 10k eventually, but that is the extent of my competitive running goals. I am running because I can. I am running because it is convenient and doable. I want to be a good role model for my daughter and I believe exercising is part of this.

I enjoy a cup or two or three of green tea mint in my Longaberger pottery each morning. I enjoy it so much, that I am now getting this tea auto-delivered from Amazon each month. (My mom sells Longaberger, so if you like my mug, get one from her. And their pottery is 20% off through the month of April! 🙂 Thanks.)

I finally have a yard again where I can plant a garden. I can’t wait for warmer weather so I can get started.

I have a dog that is really trying me lately. We got her as a puppy in 2002. She began having seizures in 2007. Her medicine had been controlling the seizures for the most part until the end of 2010. She is on a higher dose of the original meds and an additional med. She injured herself on the stairs a couple of months ago while she was having a seizure and came to get us. She still hasn’t quite recovered from that injury. The new meds are really messing with her. She used to only use the bathroom outside. Now, I clean up a mess inside 3-4 times a week. It would be more, but we moved her to the garage while we are gone at work. This is not perfect as she has got into the trash twice and recycling once. Frustrated. Challenged. Sad. She will see the vet this week to see if her meds need adjusted.

My daughter. She will be three in a couple of months. Yikes! She knows how to use my ipod. She is growing up too fast, but she is growing up beautifully.

Well, I hope you enjoyed learning a little bit more about me. I can’t wait to learn more about you, too.

  • So sorry to hear about your dog – hope the meds get sorted. Your daughter looks very bright! Time just goes so fast when they are little. It only seems like yesterday when my DD was that age and now she will be 20 next month! Thanks for sharing these snapshots of your life (over from BFS)

  • Thanks for your comments. I don’t want to think about my daughter turning 20! It’s hard enough now that she is replacing some her version of words like bunny-hop with rabbit. They really do grow up fast.
