11 Things About Me
1. I was born and raised in Minnesota.  I have no desire to leave even though I get tired of our long, cold winters.  My family and friends keep me here. 
2. I have a 10 year old son who is my world.  He keeps me super busy.
3. I needed to get glasses when I was 3 but when I was 11, my eyes were better and I no longer have to wear glasses.  Now I have great vision.
4.  I am in the process of looking into going back to college. Nervous and excited!
5. I have a lot of blogs in my reader.  Probably 100 or more.  Can't get enough.

6. I have to have a cup of coffee when I get up in the morning.

7. I am not a morning person.  I don't sleep late but I like to get a slow start.

8. I have run three 5k races. The last one was a couple of weeks ago and my time was 30:10.  After I saw my time I wished I had pushed just a tad bit harder to get under 30 minutes. There is always next time.

9. I will not eat chicken from a fast food place (I try not to eat any fast food). It creeps me out.

10. If I see a mouse, I will scream bloody murder. I know it can't hurt me but they freak me out.

11. I am trying to give up Diet Dr. Pepper but I like it so much. I only have a couple a week but I know I should stop. Help! :)

Questions From Jayelle

 1. What is one thing you know about Canada? And do not use Google!
They have great hockey teams. My son is a hockey player so I know these things :)

2. What do you wish you could really be when you grow up?
I work in the accounting field but would like to get my degree and become a CPA.
 I know, real exciting.

3. What is one reason you want to be more healthy or lose weight?
To show my son that being healthy is so important. I want my whole family to live a 
long, healthy life.

4. What is your favourite television show?
Right now I think it is Revenge.  

5. What is one thing about yourself that you are proud of or love?
I am proud of myself for owning up to the unhealthy life I have been living and 
wanting to change it.

6.  If you could have a super power, which would you want and why?
I would want to make it so calories don't count! :)

7. What is one of your best childhood memories?
Family vacations!  We didn't go on many and never out of the state but we had fun.

8.  What is your favourite beverage (alcoholic or non)?
Water Diet Dr. Pepper or Coors Light-can't decide

9.  What is your current method of torture exercise?
Running and strength training. My gym has a new machine called an Adaptive Motion Trainer and I am enjoying it.  The signs says it is there for a trial but I hope they keep it.

I have a dog named Libby.  She is a rat terrier and we love her.
