25 things you don't know about...**BLOG HOP**

I am linking up through Mama's Blog Hop...you can find her post and links to everyone else's posts HERE!

I had actually already written this post on another media forum, in January of 2009, but it still applies, so I just copied, pasted, and modified a few things that needed updating. 

Things You Don't Know About ME:

1. I STILL have no idea what I am going to be when I grow up.
2. These are things I secretly yearn to be: photographer, designer (many types), dancer (I have studied Belly Dancing for many years, but would like to attempt some other forms, as well!), personal trainer (don't laugh), Babywearing Expert and consultant, WAHM,designer and maker of handmade items, an inspiration to others, organized and neat, SEXY, rich and not-quite-so-famous (who doesn't??), a successful business owner....the list really does go on and on...I'll stop here.
3. I swore I would never love more than 1 person in my life...I now love 3, heart and soul.
4. I hate cleaning...which is why...My HOUSE is always a disorganized (seriously cluttered) disaster.
5. When I worked in an office, I was anal retentive about cleanliness and organization...never anything out of place.
6. I have a degree in Interior Design...YET, my house is an un-decorated, cluttered, disorganized disaster.
7. I put on 60 pounds being a full-time student, while working full-time, running a volunteer organization to design and rebuild homes lost in the 2003 San Diego Wildfires, and becoming a home-owner...NOT by becoming a Mommy. Having a torn tendon in my ankle for the past 2 years has not helped.
8. I was studying to become an Architect when I got pregnant with my son, after 8 years of infertility.
9. I witnessed a horrific gang-related beating while I was 8 months pregnant with my son, and chased the attacker, and saved his victim's life. My heart aches to this day, thinking of how his mother must have felt seeing him broken and bloodied, and hanging onto life by a thread.
10. We conceived our daughter the first night we TALKED ABOUT becoming pregnant in future months.
11. I have way too many clothes (especially ones that don't fit), and bags...I LOVE BAGS....(especially my pretties from Bagonia!)
12. I love to read, write, draw, sew, craft, and lots more....I hope to find the time to pursue these things more frequently, in the near future.
13. I love to learn, but hate school....not ALL of it...just the homework part.
14. I've taken so many different classes for so many different things that my hubby called me a Professional Student. I still want to take more classes...and learn more trades...I really think it's an addiction.
15. I now have ALMOST everything I've ever wanted.
16. I have some of the most amazing women EVER as my friends...I hope they know how lucky I feel to have them.
17. I went into the military straight out of high school, and turned down a chance to be a search and rescue swimmer...I still regret that.
18. I have NO SYMPATHY for someone who would abuse a child...in ANY way, shape, or form. As a child, I was abused...one day, I will find the strength and courage to write about it. Today is not that day.
19. My Mom died in a car accident in 1979...Her boyfriend was driving drunk...My brother and I were in the car...He got away with murder...I AM FIRMLY AGAINST DRINKING AND DRIVING.
20. I miss my mom, and even though I was too young to remember her...I can't seem to let go.
22. I have THE 2 MOST BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN on the face of the earth....yes, I am biased.
23. I have a freckle on the bottom of my foot...now, so does my daughter.
24. There are 3 people in my life I can't live without...I hope I never have to.
25. I LOVE to help others.

I used to be the same way when I worked somewhere else other than at home - what is it that working at home makes it harder to be more organized?

That is so cute that you and SugarPlum have that freckle to share ; )

Hello fellow blog-hopper. I have never met you yet while i was reading, it sounded like i was reading something i wrote to me. I too am a Professional Student. Every semester, I offer going back to school to my hubby to stop the school loan bills from coming but he keeps saying no... if you ever want to sew, maybe we can sew some time =) So nice to meet you!
