    Exactly What I Am Now :)

    For the most part. I was practically sewing since birth (might post one of my baby pictures of me sewing as soon as I set up my scanner LOL it's pretty funny), it was what I was trained to do most of my life. That and other crafts and homemaking. It's what my Mom and...

    My Mom Used to Say When I Was Just a Little Girl

    "if I knew then, what I know now........I'd be the best w.h.o.r.e. in Vegas. I for the life of me can't  remember thinking of anything else as a kid.  I knew I'd live a fast life.    It was between a prostitute, a mafia man's girl, or a biker chick...

    Veterinarian

    I remember in Kindergarten they asked all the kids what they wanted to be when they grew up and to draw a picture of it. I wanted to be a veterinarian and help all the animals. As I grew up, I realized I wouldn't be able to do that job because even if it was for the best, I...

    You Mean I Have to Grow Up?

    Well, DAMN. No one told me that...... CRAP! Seriously, all I wanted to be when I grew up was a wife & mother. I got neither, so I guess you could say I am a complete failure. Maybe I should have set my sights lower...... It was all I ever wanted but I'm 37 yrs old &...

    Who Knows

    As a child, I always wanted to grow up to be a cowboy. Camping out on the open range. Having adventures and shooting bad guys. I couldn't afford the horse living in the city so that plan faded. I later wanted to grow up to be like my father. He seemed to be too unhappy with his...

    I Was Always Very Indecisive.

    I wanted to be a cop, a vet, a musician, a surgeon; I coudn't make up my mind! All I knew is that I wanted to be extremely wealthy, and retire my parents. I wanted to help people, and I know I still have the opportunity to follow through with at least one or two of those wishes.
