It's your blog too.

I want to make sure that this blog is also about things you want. I am full of information that I have plans on writing about but it won't do me any good unless you want to read it. I also love interacting with you. Your feedback is always welcome.

Sometimes it's hard to interact with someone you don't know. (I know that all too well.) So, here is more about me:

In some things I am a perfectionist.
In many cases I have OCD.
I find organizing things therapeutic.
I love to craft but I'm by no means creative. I can take ideas and make them my own, that's about it.
I am a problem solver.
I believe in food storage and the sense of security it gives me.
A clean home is wonderful but not completely necessary. It's better to be organized with dust on the furniture than no speck of dust and not knowing where anything is.
I believe that being a homemaker is a very hard job. (Hardest I've ever had!) It is neverending 24/7 with no vacation. (Even if you go on vacation a homemaker is still working.)
I believe in standing up for what I believe is right.
I believe in walking away from an argument when I know it isn't going anywhere.
I am intelligent.
My grammar stinks! (Just ask my husband.)
I enjoy learning new things every day. (I hate not knowing something.)
I love my kids.
I love my family.
I love my pets.
I love gardening. (Except in Texas. My green thumb turned brown.)
I love being in the kitchen and it's where I spend most of my time.
I love our soldiers.
I love our country.
I am not politically minded and have no party. I believe in the individual.
I have to do something all the time. I cannot sit idly, ever. Unless I'm asleep. There are days my health won't let me be up and about so I work on other things using my computer.
There is always something else to do, ALWAYS.
My hobbies include but are not limited to: Cooking, baking, sewing, herbalism, crafting, food storage, emergency preparedness, canning/preserving, gardening, pets, reading, cross stitch, embroidery and math puzzles (Kakuro, not Sodoku.) Oh, I forget Pinterest! (Can I call that a hobby?)
I'm terrified of spiders!
I am eccentric. (Deviating from the recognized or customary character, practice, etc.; irregular; erratic; peculiar; odd.)
I am eclectic. (Not following any one system, as of philosophy, medicine, etc., but selecting and using what are considered the best elements of all systems.)
I have knowledge I will gladly share if asked.
I am shy.
I don't like crowds.
I don't watch sports or follow them in any way.
I don't watch cooking shows. (Or really any other DIY type shows.)
I love movies but have to watch them 100 times to get it all. (I wouldn't if I could just sit and watch the movie and do nothing else.)
I love lists. I have discovered that as you get older you REALLY do forget everything if it's not written down.
I'm friendly and giving.
I get hurt when people abuse our friendship.
I do not swear very often. (If I do and my voice is raised, watch out!)

That is really all I can think of right now. I think that gives you a fairly good idea of who I am.

Okay, so before I start posting nonsense or rambling on even more head over to Pinterest and link in the comments or on Facebook what you would like to see tried, tested or made.

Part of my family.
