Share My World 2015 – Week #2


These are all HAPPY questions for me! Cee must have sensed a need of Happiness on a Monday Morning!

Are you a hugger or a non-hugger?
I am a HUGGER! As a teacher many times we are told “DO NOT TOUCH the kids!” We are talking KIDS here people! I give hugs and probably will hug my students until I retire sorry big boss people. As for outside of school I hug too! For a few years my fibro was so bad I had to stop, even a light hug hurt so I am happy to be back to HUGGIN’

What’s your favorite ice-cream flavor?
Chocolate… Anything chocolate. the more chocolate the better!!! For close to 10 years if I ate more than i spoonful of ice cream I had a TERRIBLE Belly ache, with my DiGize Oil I can have lactose so that means LOTS of chocolate ice cream!!!

Do you prefer exercising your mind or your body? How frequently do you do either?
Well, seeing as how I am finally with the 99% of American’s who LOVES food, I NEED to get moving more. I exercise my mind so much more than my body BUT having put on a few pounds, OK, not yet 100 but… more than I have been other than being pregnant I better get myself moving. No more excuse that my fibro is too bad to do so, I just gotta do it! need inspiration in this area!

Are you more of a dog person or a cat person? Why?
We currently have 3 dogs and 3 cats, our highest was 4 dogs and 6 cats. It is soooo hard to choose. I guess I love any animal who snuggles! Lately it has been my dogs who fall in this department. We have a Blue Tick Hound (Suzie), a Greyhound (Bosco), and a part beagle part German Shepherd (Jesse). My Minipin- Chihuahua(Peyton) just past away last month… In the need for another snuggle dog for sure! So I am going with dogs… for now.

Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I am grateful for my hubby Paul. He is a Law Enforcement Officer and my life-long love. In the light of all that is going on with officers he goes out there and does his thing! Scary for me, but proud to say he is FINALLY happy in his career! (this is his second)

And for the week coming up? I am excited for Bunco. I play with a group of ladies at my school, we are low key and just get together to have fun. Food + Friends = Fun


One Word for 2015…

In thinking about a word to focus on for 2015, I thought of many…dream, focus, peace, transform, serenity but one stuck with me… HARMONY!

I am needing a little Harmony in my life!


Having a bipolar teenager is enough to send even the most calm and collected parent running for the hills or perhaps just under the covers!

Add on top of that being a Law Enforcement Officer’s wife, teaching full-time as a reading specialist working with struggling readers all day, tutoring afterschool, and running a business I need HARMONY Big time!

I am going to get some canvas and paint me a picture to hang up so I can focus on this!


If something can be let go of I WILL LET IT GO… I will not add anymore stress to my already full plate. I will continue to find harmony between my illness and my business sharing my story with anyone who will listen. I will find harmony between my hubby and myself trying to find sometime to focus on each other. I will find harmony between my son and myself, letting the little things that teenagers harp on not get to me so much! I will find the harmony in 2015!
