lost with out my wonderful husband and 3 kids. They are my 


3. What's your star sign??

I am A LEO
4. If you were stranded on a deserted island who and what(one item) would you like to have with you??

James(hubby) and knife. With just him and that I do believe we
 would possibly have a chance of getting out of there. the knife
 would not only be good for cutting stuff to make weapons 
and/or shelter but could also be used to kill for food or safety.

5. What's your favorite pastime??

Movie nights with the kids or just spending time with them.
 They grow so fast I don't want to miss moment we can turn 
into memories.

6. What's the silliest thing you've ever done??

It wasn't really silly but more like dumb. we were getting over
run by stray kittens so my husband and I devised a plan to 
lour the kittens into the house with food and then catch them
 with a laundry basket so that we could take them to the local 
cat cradle so that they would have a better life. Long story 
short we caught all the kittens but one. The last kitten was a 
bit to smart and when I went to catch him, he caught me. He 
latched onto my hand and proceeded to gnaw on it like 
hamburger. My husband ended up having to choke the kitten 
in order to get it to let me go. I ended up having to have rabies 
shots and almost had to have surgery on my finger. but I 
learned never to mess with stray cats after that.
