Ultimate Blog Party '09

Don't forget to check out my new posts at the bottom of this sticky post.

Well 5 Minutes for Mom is hosting a blog party and everyone is invited.
This is a blog party to meet new friends and will be going on the week of March 20th to 27th. This is a virtual party for meeting new friends and also winning some prizes.
You can go here for the instructions and then go here to check out the parting crowd. You can visit here to see the prize page. Some of the bloggers are giving away door prizes so make sure you leave a comment when you visit their sites.
Have fun making friends and trying to win prizes.

So, with that me introduce myself.

I am 29+ (or 29 with experience) mother of one beautiful daughter who just turned 20. I have been married to my High School Sweetheart for almost 21 years. We have two dogs, one is a 7 year old Lab-Newfoundland mix, named Shadow, who weighs in at 140 pounds and is diabetic. Yes the dog is on insulin. He takes 36 units twice per day. Our other dog is almost 1, she is a Cocker Spaniel, named Sophie, and is a spoiled baby. I have never seen such a spoiled dog before. We also have a 7 year old cat named Punkin who weighs in at about 16 pounds. Yes all our animals are huge. In our house we also have our daughters Cocker Spaniel, Motely and her cat named Milo. Milo and Punkin are brothers from the same litter. You can see all their pics under ~Favorites~ on the menu bar.

I am a County Certified Childcare Provider. I have been providing Childcare since 1992 and I enjoy almost every moment of it. Children are so underestimated. They are a ball full of information and they are always yearning to learn more. I keep kids Monday thru Saturday from 3:45am or 6:45am to either 10pm or 11pm.

My Hubby is a Jack of all Trades. Right now he is unemployed as a Semi Driver. Everyone has been keeping him busy fixing their cars or remodeling kitchens and building a roof over our porch and re-roofing the whole house. In the past 2 1/2 months he has probably worked on 10 cars, 2 kitchens and our roof.

I have not been blogging long but I love doing it and intend to keep doing it. I have met a lot of interesting people and I am going to have fun meeting more people during the Ultimate Blog Party '09

Oh my goodness, I almost forgot about the prizes. Wow so many but here are the ones that I would love to have: 58, 67, 19, 21, 22, 26, 50, 58, 88, 89, 91, 99, 113, 118, 123, 72, USC 30, USC 39, and of course all the rest of them!! :)
