I got an Award- For being an honest Blogger.

Thanks to my friend E over at Completely Eclipsed. Thank you for this great award, honestly awesome! Now I have to list 10 things about my self. I will try to list 10 things you don't know about me. Here goes:

1. Even though I went to school for 4 years and had a 3.0, I still only have an associates degree. I knew my B average grades would never get me into PT school and I still really wanted to do PT so I decided to be a PTA (can do the same treatments as a PT, I just cannot do the initial evaluation). I have 2 years of an undergrad biology degree done, my 2 year PTA degree completed, and 136 college credits - and only an associates!

2. I am terrified, like a fear that paralyzes me, of spiders. I cannot get near them, not even to kill them. Even if they are teeny tiny. They are just creepy. Now that I am a mommy and am home alone with Brody quite often there has been an occasion or two where I have had to step it up and kill a spider near Brody's crib, I can do it, but it takes a huge pep talk to myself and my heart races and I do it fast. Even now I am getting the chill bumps thinking about it.

3. I am quite literally the most disorganized person in the world. I loose my car keys and cell phone daily. And don't even get me started on my bag for work (I do home health care) where I loose my daily schedule, um, daily. It's very frustrating!

4. I am a diabetic, Type 1, but I LOVE CANDY. Love it! And I hate when people say, you probably should not be eating that - a) Mind your own business b) Diabetics can eat sugar, shocking, I know, in moderation. All I do is take more insulin to cover what I eat.

5. Some day Corey and I want to own our own pizza place. We would love to open a restaurant together and work out the rest of our days with each other. We want to serve great pizzas, have a really good- super fresh salad bar, and eventually serve drinks as well.

6. I love cake. Cake is my weakness. If I bake a cake for Corey for his birthday or some occasion, I usually (over the course of a week or more) end up eating almost the whole thing on my own.

7. I watch Beverly Hills 90210 and One Tree Hill every.single.day. Because of Soap net. I used to watch the OC again as well, but they did not have as many seasons and I have now seen every episode 4 times. Did you know 90210 was on for 10 years! 10 seasons and only 4 of the original cast members made it all the way through to the end? Well now you do!

8. I was a gymnast in high school, I was in choir, and performed on stage in front of hundreds a night in the "History of Rock and Roll" I sang 2 songs in the show and danced in 13 numbers. I love performing. I danced for a company in college. My Jr. high choir tried out for Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, and were part of the children's Choir! I desperately miss being in the spotlight when I go see plays, musicals, sporting events, and dance recitals.

9. One of my favorite movies of all time is Labyrinth. It's so creepy and weird. But my sisters and I loved it and know every line. My husband is creeped out by it and will not watch it. Hmm, I think I am going to go throw in it the DVD player right now, since he is not home. "You remind me of the babe..."

10. I used to suffer from Diabulemia. It is a very little known about problem but it effects quite a few diabetic women/girls. Insulin makes you gain weight. Diabulemics deliberately give themselves less insulin than they need to loose weight. When I got diagnosed I went from weighing 85lbs (I was 21 years old - it was not cute) to weighing 125 lbs in one week. None of my clothes fit and after I gained that weight, my boyfriend of 4 years broke up with me. Needless to say I had a complex. It got really bad when I moved out on my own after college. I didnt have my parents monitoring me anymore, so I kind of had a field day with it. Thank GOD for Corey, because he noticed that I was not taking care of myself and implemented meter checks to make sure I was taking my blood sugar and that it was under-control. Also, he made me feel pretty and good about myself. Things could have been really bad for me and since I have been pregnant and cannot loose those last 15 lbs, I find myself thinking about doing it again. Then I think of my two wonderful boys in my life and know they love me for who I am, not what I look like. But it is a struggle day to day, still.

Phew, those are my 10 things.

Oh high five on the Labryinth! I also hate spiders! When I had Everett for some reason we had huge spiders - they were like 4" wide and i'm not even kidding! One day I was nursing him at 5AM and one of them was on the ceiling! I had to watch it for 30 minutes until Jade got up for work to kill it. I sprayed it with spider killer - didn't even phase it! Oh it still gives me the chills!

Thanks for the award woman!
