I found this fun post on It’s My Truth Now and thought I’d give it a little go. I had a lot of fun reading his post and getting to know more about the person behind the screen and thought my blog readers may enjoy getting to know a bit more about me.
NICKNAMES: Kris (online only) and Krissy (by my nieces only)
My children call me “Mutt” don’t ask me why. Perhaps it started when I started calling my daughter, Piper by the nickname Pup or Puppy.

REAL HOLIDAY: Umm, I’ve no idea. I’m not sure what this means. If it means my first holiday I existed for, my birthday. Which so happens to be St. Patrick’s Day.
BEST FRIEND: I had a friend named Casey when I was in kindergarten. She’s my only bestie I ever had until I became an adult.
AWARD: I have no idea. The first I received that really meant something to me would be for a presentation on the detrimental effects on Killer Whales in captivity. I wrote this when I was 15. Which means this was oh…20 years ago. I didn’t need Blackfish to tell me I was against this practice!
SPORT: Volleyball. Which I hated. I have always suffered chronic pain so this was not the sport for me!

HAVE KIDS: I already have children. I have six wonderful daughters, two angels in heaven and 4 cats.
WANT TO TRAVEL: Yes. My heart’s desire is to see the Northern Lights.
Do you believe
In Yourself: Yes. I’ve learned to love and believe in myself. It seems the thirties brought a much-needed change in my life. I’ve ditched negative people from my life and fully embraced myself.
God: Yes, to my very core.
Miracles: Yes. Beyond a doubt.
Love at first sight: Not at all. That initial spark may lead to love but it is impossible to love someone just from seeing them. Love is sticking together when your health fails. Loves is sticking together when you lose a child together. Love someone else before yourself. I’m not saying you have to experience the same hardships that I have (pregnancy loss or health problems) but it’s the sentiment that I mean. Love is working through the hard times. It isn’t always about attraction and lust. It goes to a deeper level than those butterflies you feel when you first meet someone.
Aliens: I believe in the possibility of aliens.
Soul Mates: No. I’m sorry that sounds cruel but what about a man/woman who loses their spouse that they loved very much? Should they never seek love again? Your soul belongs to you and you alone.
Hell: Yes, very much so.
