25 Random Things about Me!

1. I'm the richest person in the world because of my wonderful loving husband, Kevin, of 23 1/2 years. We are true soulmates. He is wonderful, we are a team. We help each other. We built an airplane together, and he will help me with laundry, dishes, cleaning, whatever!

In the hospital after 2nd heart attack. All I see is the love in his eyes.

2. I love Dolphins! I grew up watching Flipper on television in the 1960's. I have swam with dolphins 2x thanks to Kevin. When we had our clinic my entire office was dolphins, I had a walpaper wall mural!

3. Neil Diamond is the BEST singer songwriter in the WORLD! I do like other music and very eclectic taste, but I LOVE NEIL! I've seen him in concert 8 times, and here in Lubbock, back in 2002 he motioned me to the stage with my then 5 yr old saughter and sang to her and I and Kissed both of us on the cheek!

4. I love Disney, anything Disney. I've been to Walt Disney World (WDW) 8 or 9 times only because we joined the Disney Vacation Club (DVC). I use to be a Cast Member (CM). I worked a the local Disney Store in the mall 13 yrs ago. I worked strictly for the discount and free park tickets, I didn't make any money! My kids love Disney, and we love Star Wars Weekends at WDW in the summer.

5. I'm the Scrapbook Queen according to my neice in Oklahoma! Other nick names I have been given are Carebear - LONG before any little cartoon characters, Karat, and Chicokie! I was born in Chicago and went to colleg in Oklahoma!!!

6. I'm a collector - or some people would say packrat! I have a Dachshund figurine collection started when I was 10, I use to have a postcard collection, wait, Mom may still have that, I hae a miniature bottle collection up in the attic, I have a doctor figurine collection for my husband, we have an airplane figurine collection, I have a small camera collection, I have a massive button/pin collection, I have a lot of Disney stuff all thru my home, 2 of my sons have massive Star Wars collections - the 21 yr old's apartment is totally SW- he has all my 1970's stuff. Did I mentions tree ornaments? I'm sure there is something I'm leaving out, but I think you get the idea.

7. So If I love to Scrapbook, I must love photography, right? Yep, friends have said that if I were stranded on a desert island, I would have my camera!

8. I love Sci-Fi just about anything Sci-Fi.

9. Stargate SG-1 Have all 10 seasons on DVD and can almost name every episode. We'll have Stargate weekends where we just watch it all weekend. We have 400 some odd channels on TV and there's never anything on to watch!!

10. I'm a hopeless romantic - and my husband is to. He could teach a few men how to do 10 yr anniversaries!

11. I don't buy clothes, shoes, electronics, 'stuff' unless it is on sale. I'm a number 1 bargain hunter! Even in WDW I find stuff on sale! I watch adds and get my scrapbooking stuff on sale!!!

12. Kevin is a family physician - NOT a cardiologist - big income difference lay people! I pride myself on not being a snobby Doctor's wife! I like people to get to know me and then find out I'm married to a doc!

14. We like to party, with the kids! Kids friends are frequently here at the house. Friends think we are cool parents. We're 48 and don't act old and stuffy! At Halloween we had 40 4th and 5th graders running around playing about 8 different games at stations. NYE we had 45 adults and kids playing games, eating, doing sparklers, and ringing in the New Year!

The den on NYE with friends visiting.
