The Good the Bad and the Ugly.

I have seen many post out there that have started  with the line " 1O things you may not know about me." I thought this was a great idea. But they seem to only talk about the good things. Not that, that's wrong . It's just not me. With me you get the whole package. So for your pleasure. Here is the Good the Bad and the Ugly.
1) My friends are very important to me. Good times or bad I will stand by them. Even if their wrong I will stand by them. That doesn't mean I won't tell them their wrong.
2)  God and Family is everything to me. I take my job of raising good and respectful kids  very seriously. My kids will never have to wonder if they are loved.
3) I love to cook. I am always learning how to make as many things from scratch as I can.
4) I love crafts of any kind. I do ceramics,stain glass, quilts, needle work, and yarn work. Finished projects is another story.
5) I will always be there if you need me rain or shine.  Sleet and ice we may need to talk about it.
6) I love to travel. I have been to all the states but Hawaii (3/4 of them I have lived in. )
7) I am a military grand daughter, brat, bride, and proud of it.
8) I garden and have chickens ( Ok that you might know.)
9) I am married to an American Indian. Who grew up on a cattle ranch on the reservation.
10) I love life! I will always find the joy in things.

1)I can never say no. My BFF says I should say no at least once a year.
2) I can talk your ear off.
3) I laugh when I am nerves. Which can be awkward.
4) I make my kids get me coffee. They hate it.That doesn't mean it will change.I have to torture them some how.
5) I have to put myself on restriction from TV or I will sit and watch it all day. Laptop is a close second.
6) My daughter joined the Air force .I am very proud of her. The bad is, she got hit with chemicals. She will have nerve damage for the rest of her life. The good, is she still has a great out look on life.
7) My grand babies live several states a way. So I don't get to see then very often.
8) I am VERY SPOILED!. My husband has no one to blame but himself.
9)I love my cats. And some times they come first. I have a rule in my house. If you have a cat on your lap, then everyone else has to get you what you need. The cat doesn't get moved. Yes, I know I am a little crazy. Maybe this should go on the Ugly. Still debating.
10) On nights I don't want to cook, Your choice are eat out, you cook it, or you starve. It's that simple.

1) I am right. I can be wrong, but you have to prove it first.
2) Patience. Whats that word?
3) I can not be controlled . Tell me NO and it's already done.
4) Don't ask my advise .You will get it. Ok, maybe sometimes when you didn't ask.
5) I have no Tact. No really, I don't carry that gene.
6) Don't ask if you don't want the truth. If that dress makes you fat. Believe me I will tell you. Wait a minute? I could put that one on the good list, then again maybe not.
7) I use my womanly charm to get what I want from my husband. Hey, if it works why change it.
8) I have a big mouth. I also have foot in mouth disease.
9) Sarcasm is not my middle name. It is my first name.
10) Would I change any of these things. Probably not.
