1. Do you have other hobbies besides your yarn art?

***rubberstamping, and I'd like to get back into scrapbooking and cross stitch. I will when the kids are older.

2. Five years ago, did you think you would be where you are now? If not, where did you think you'd be?

***No. I got some money from my great uncle when he died (yes, cliche like isn't it?) and it made it possible to buy this house w/ enough bedrooms for us all and to have Miranda. I thought I'd still be in the last town, in a tiny house, still struggling for money. Now I'm in a big house, in a much better town, still struggling for money LOL.

3. Are you happy with your life right now?

***Generally yes, I've never been happier. But we need me to find a job and it's just not happening so it'll be darn near right on when I do.

4. What is the most out-of-character thing you've ever done?

***Went to a movie by myself three years ago which lead me to go to college. Bravery and confidence are traits that I have never had an abundant supply of. Joining the sockapal-2-za knit along and starting a blog was something out of character for me recently also.

5. Name 3 odd things we may not know about you.

***Hummm, this is hard:

a) I have a twin brother who's five mintues younger than me.
b) We are adopted (together, and no we aren't identical, there'd be something wrong
with one of us)
c) I'm a poor housekeeper despite being a flybaby. (ie: I'm very lazy)

1. Do you have other hobbies besides your yarn art? - Hmmm, scrapbooking but I really haven't done much with it lately. I also like to do computer graphics and webpages.



2. Five years ago, did you think you would be where you are now? If not, where did you think you'd be? - 5 years ago I was dating my ex-boyfriend in a relationship I should have left a long time ago. I was also in school getting my engineering degree and doubting my abilities to get that degree. Here I am 5 years later, engaged to the man of my dreams (who I did actually know also 5 years ago), complete with my engineering degree and a job with a great company. Yes, I thought I'd be here but I sure did have my doubts.



3. Are you happy with your life right now? - Generally, I am very blessed and happy. Are there other aspects of my life that could be better right now? Sure, but I am happy.



4. What is the most out-of-character thing you've ever done? - Hmm, I don't do a whole lot of out-of-character things really. I can't think of any right now.



5. Name 3 odd things we may not know about you.


- I'm afraid of aliens.


- I don't like my bedsheets tucked in.


- I like to be completely dry before putting clothes on after a shower.

2. Five years ago, did you think you would be where you are now? If not, where did you think you'd be? Well, I think 5 years ago I would have thought I would have children by now, but we're working on it.

3. Are you happy with your life right now? In the grand scheme of things, yes, I have a GREAT job, I have an AWESOME hubby, we have a beautiful home, I live in a GREAT city, and I have wonderful friends. I only wish that I was already a mommy, but that's going to happen soon.

4. What is the most out-of-character thing you've ever done? About five years ago I got wasted for the first time in my whole life (I was 30) in San Francisco while we were on holiday with my FIL. I had a hangover for almost a week. I have never gotten wasted again.
