Thursday Thirteen


All About Me!

1.  I'm a mom of boy/girl twins, age 24, have three older step-children (1 male, 2 female), and 3 grandkids by my step-children (boy twins age 13 and a precious 1 year old girl).  I've been married to the step-kids' father for almost 16 years.  I don't usually call them step-kids except I don't want my readers thinking I gave birth to all five kids! I love all of them the same and was probably more of a mom to the girls than their own mom.

2. My daughter (the twin) just got married in November.  We did a lot of DIY for the photo booth, table decorations, seating chart, ceremony, and even did a candy "bar."

3.  I love doing DIY projects whether it's crafting with wood, flowers, paint, or anything else.

4. I love making cards and scrapbooking.

5.  I also have a sewing machine.  This Christmas I made several pairs of pajama pants, a nightgown, a skirt, and 4 decorative pillows. I use my Cricut Explore to do scrapbooking, card-making, and to create unique shirts.

6. I love to read!  True crime is one of my favorite genres.  I'm currently reading:

7. I love to color!!!!

8. I am a retired teacher, yay!!!!  December 18, 2019 was my last day.

9. I enjoy taking photographs and creating slideshows of them.  I did a slideshow for my father-in-law's 80th birthday.  He's over 90 now!  I like taking nature and wildlife photos.

10. When I was little, I was diagnosed with a congenital heart defect, but it doesn't really cause any problems right now.

11. I had to wear braces on my legs when I was about 2 or 3. Yes, like Forrest Gump.  I only had to wear them at night for two years, though.

12. I have experienced anaphylactic shock twice.  The first time I was about 7 years old, and I had to get a tetanus shot.  Bad idea!  I'm allergic!  The second time, I was 15, and it was a reaction to ampicillan. This one wasn't caught as quickly and I had to get shots of epinephrine to keep my heart beating.  Scary stuff!

13.  I am a Christian; Jesus is my Lord and Savior.  I don't live a perfect life; I'm a sinner who is trying to be better each day. 

Join Thursday Thirteen for some fun!


  1. Does the reaction to the tetanus shot disqualify you from other vaccinations? You sound like a very wonderful and complete person.

    1. It hasn't so far. I get a flu shot every year. I got the shingles vaccine and the first dose (so far) of the covid vaccine.


I love comments! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
