About Me

My photo
I am a 42 year old woman that is about as happy and content as one person can be. My husband of 21 years and our 15 year old daughter live on five and a half acres out in the country. We moved from the city four years ago and never looked back. I homeschool our daughter. We also love our animals. Our daughter has a miniature horse and two rabbits. We also have a border collie, two cats (again), two pot belly pigs, four peafowl, three emus, 2 llamas and an undetermined number of chickens, lets just say ohhh about 200. I have many breeds, from layers to fancy chickens. I love poultry shows, I love fowl in general as I have come to find out through having more than just chickens. Chickens will always be my first love though. I do show some of my birds occasionally.

Questions

1. WHAT WHERE YOU DOING TEN YEARS AGO

 Shelby, mine and Ians daughter, was three. My world was her. I did have animals then! Cats, yes Lisa, cats. I had four then I think. ( I have had up to six at once) Ian and I were also into fish..we had four tanks going. Oh yes, and we also had Dragon, our iguana. Ian had gotten on with Mead in Atlanta just before Shelby was born so we were doing alright and I could stay at home and be a mama and a homemaker. That was always what my goal was. I know most then were looking at college and careers...but I wanted to be to Shelby what my Mama had been to me.

2. WHAT ARE 5 THINGS ON MY TO-DO  LIST TODAY

It was....

Laundry...which I only got one load of done because I get sidetracked so easily doing other things.

Hay the pigs pen, check!

Take the back panel off of the newer chicken house and replace it with chicken wire so it will not be so closed up and have a 'window' to air out. CHECK!

Start teaching Shelby Spanish today in school until the end of the school year. CHECK!

Mow at least part of the back of the property. CHECK!

(I wanted to get the babies (older chicks brooder) cleaned out, but it just didnt happen today. Maybe tomorrow.)

 

 

When I get home:

 I am home...lol!

3. SNACKS I ENJOY

I love the BBQ sunflower seeds! I think I am addicted to them, can you be addicted to that?

My other weakness is hot wings. But they have to be just the way I like them. I dont like them mushy! They taste funny like that. I want the skin on them crispy. I like the extra hot or hot sauce, and I want a bowl of it on the side to dip them in too. (My family says I am picky? ;)  Ha)

4. WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU WERE A BILLIONAIRE?

I would buy a house...on the beach, in Florida, with land. Do you know how expensive that would be??? But I would want the land so I could still have a few animals, and my space.

 I would pay off my parents debts, my sisters debts, my best friend Sherrys debts. I would make sure they were comfortable and had a nice place to live where they wanted to live.

I would invest some of the money so it would make money. In what I dont exactly know off the top of my head.

I would like to run a rescue for all animals. Big and small, short and tall, fat and skinny, hairy or bald, feathered or furry. I love animals, period and they deserve a good life. The ones that I could find homes for, I would. The ones not fit for any home, would live out their lives at the sanctuary.

I would fund my daughters dream of going to Art School or becoming a marine biologist, that directed to working with dolphins. NOW, not later...she could go NOW.

There are some things money just cant buy that I want. I want to outlaw some things, I want to make laws for other things...but I wont go on and on about that.

5. BAD HABITS

 Eat too much, weigh too much

Procrastinate

Anti social, I dont really do well around groups of people I dont know well.

Late for everything just about seems like.

As I have gotten older I have become more and more pessemistic (sp?) about a lot of things.

6. 5 PLACES I HAVE LIVED

Columbus, GA

Jonesboro, GA

Ellenwood, GA

Forest Park, GA

Aragon, GA

7. 5 JOBS I'VE HAD

 Worked for Domino's Pizza from the time I was sixteen til about 1991. I was an order taker, then a manager in training, then a manager. Later after quitting management I went back and delivered pizzas for a little while.

I worked for (SHUDDER) Country Fed Meat as a secretaries assistant. That was an awful place.

I delivered pizzas for Pizza Hut at two different times, two different stores.

Now I am a mom, wife, teacher, farm gal, and country as a turnip green. ;)

5 people I want to know about:

Loved your answers...especially what you were doing 10 yrs ago.  What a great mommy you were!  Any women who is willing to stay home with their kids AND home school them is a great mom!  I could never home school..I just don't have the patience!  Although if it got any worse around our schools I would do it in a minute.  But I told my hubby he has to help me.  He is the one with the genius iq NOT ME! lol

Great answers, quite a few match me to a tee.  Being that you home school Shelby and have been a stay at home mom you actually have the toughest job...you are molding a person!  I love your concept of the rescue, getting homes for those you can and keeping the ones you can't.  I enjoyed reading your answers.
