I've Been Tagged!



Ok, here are seven things about me that you may or may not know...

1) I am the 3rd born of 5 girls, and the 3rd of 3 sisters to get sisterlocks.

2) I'm a single mother of a 15 year old daughter , Brittani, and a 12 1/2 year old son, Justin. I've been divorced from their father for 9 1/2 years.

3) I've worked as a registered nurse for nearly 17 years, mostly in Labor and Delivery. Currently I work as An advice Nurse for the call-center at Kaiser Permanente .

4) I am passionate about people suffering from anxiety and depression. Those callers get extra special treatment and attention from me. There is a personal satisfaction in advising them and accessing care for them.

5) I bought my first home three years ago, its a 3 bedroom, 2 bath Beazer home. The backyard is quite large and was professionally landscaped four months ago.

6) I love to sing, and consider it a gift from the Almighty. When an oppurtunity to sing presents, it is usually for a church event.

7) My favorite kind of food is Thai.

    It's great learning more about you. I agree with Creyole.

    Your home - well what I can see of it - is really lovely, especially the landscaping (I'm an HGTV fan) :-)

    Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks Valeniajaz: You are right, our locks do look similar. I bet our hair type is similar too.

    Hi Muslimahlocs: We're working on sister #2. That will be quite a feat if we pull it off, but who knows, miracles do happen (-:

    Wonderful post. What side of town do you live on? I used to live in Greenhaven off I-5. I hung out at the Incense Man's kiosk at Florin Mall and unfortunately, the "hair care" shop right by the entrance. If you've shopped there, you know. I only hung out at the Arden Fair Mall occasionally. Congrats on your new home landscaping! Glad you're using your singing to bless others! We'll have to chat off line about #4. Very interesting...

  18. Nubian1 said...

    With all things 'Gods time is the best'. Congrats on your new home. As my dearly departed mother used to say when we visited family & friends 'Peace be onto this home'
