My granddaughter, Jesselyn, and I are going to paint a pumpkin. She is now 6 years old!
This is a picture of me in 4th grade! Probably about a 100 years ago! LOL!
My son, Caleb, as an adult. Where did the time go?
Teaching! (Of course!)
Not having to cook dinner.
Singing silly songs
Eating out at Aqui, Applebees, The Cheesecake Factory..actually pretty much any place!
Favorite animal is a bear.
Favorite color is red.
Scrapbooking is my favorite hobby.
I love cheesecake BUT I have diabetes so no sugar, cake, cookies, bread, or rice for me. Boo hoo!
My birthday is February 9.
I was born in Japan and lived there until graduating from high school. This is a picture of me in kindergarten.
I learned Japanese before English and my kindergarten teacher had to tell my mom to speak to me more in English! In 4th grade I figured out I wasn't Japanese and I was crushed! In 4th grade I lived in a small fishing village called Shimizu. Every day I would go to the dock and check to see what the fishermen had caught. They would always give me something to take home. Once I took home a huge squid and my mom couldn't figure out how to wash the ink out! Our neighbor finally explained that you have to cut out the ink sack. In 5th grade I had a pet monkey. I would catch frogs in the river and feed them live to my monkey.
Moths! I will tell you my scary moth story one day!
Talking on the phone - texting is awesome.
Math is my least favorite subject.
I want a house that magically cleans itself!
Spiders - they grow very big in Japan and I have many scary stories about them. In 5th grade I lived on a farm and there were always spiders in the outhouse. I always went to the bathroom with a broom so I could swat them.
Cockroaches - again, in Japan they grow huge. Once a cockroach got into my bed and bit me on the leg!
