About Me

My photo
45 year old partnered with the love of my life, with a 28 year old daughter, 23 year old step-son, 19 year old step-son, 16 year old step-daughter, a 9 year old step-son and a 4 1/2 year old son. I now have 5 male cats and 1 female bunny that I adore. I had to rehome 2 kitties last September and 2 kitties passed away in November so things have been sad this past year. I love contests as I'm sure you can tell. I also love tattoos, looking at other peoples' and getting my own (I've had 17). I met the man of my dreams, living right next door! We plan to get married this year and to homestead within the next 2 years.

Ultimate Blog Party 2009!

The Ultimate Blog Party of '09 has started. It runs from March 20-27th. The button is on the sidebar and the link is below so feel free to check it out. Lots of great prizes and lots of great friends. It's the social gathering of the year in blogsville. 5 Minutes for Mom is one of the hosts. There are already over 684 Family Friendly Linked Sites on there...one of them being mine, of course. I hope to see you all there and I hope everyone has a great time!
This is my first one so I am taking full advantage of meeting new people and checking out all the great blogs that are on there.
I am a 37 year old mother of one...a 21 year old daughter who is attending her second year of university. I have been married for almost 12 years, although we have been together for almost 20 years this year. I have 2 wonderful furbabies, who are pictured on my blog. That's about all there is to say about me!
