    1) I've been married for 26 years and have 3 children - Addison (DD# 1 is 23 and a college grad saving to go to medical school); Callan (DD#2 is 22 and a Junior in college); and Harrison (13 and in 7th grade).
    2) I'm a hybrid scrapper and have been paper scrapping since 1997. I've been buying (a lot) of digi supplies (and taking PS classes) since 2013 but didn't make my first digital LO until MOC 2017. I wanted to wait until I could make something I was proud of.
    3) I don't have any tattoos but have been seriously considering getting one of a Union Jack.
    4) I converted to Catholicism when I was 14 years old after having an instant conversion while visiting a church. I say some of my prayers in Latin every day.
    5) I see a pain management doctor an hour away from me every month. I've been living with chronic pain since 2004.
    5.1) I'm a lefty too, but neither of my parents or brother are left-handed.

    I believe, Miss Margaret, it's because of how we grew up. Lefty's weren't... well, we were "wrong" and I remember SEVERAL times being struck on the hand with a ruler and they'd hover until I wrote with my right. Scissors, same way. So I CAN write with my right, it's horrible, but I can. What's funny though is by the time I was in high school, they didn't care anymore so I got to write with my left, but during soft ball try outs, I literally "threw like a girl". I couldn't hit anything to save my life with that ball. The baseball coach was watching (because everyone was laughing at how bad I was, even me..) and suddenly ask my coach if he could borrow me. He had me throw overhand (with both hands) and I found that with my right hand, I nailed the target every time. Weird, eh?

    @keepscrappin I use Not You're Mother's dry shampoo, which is slightly on the pricey side (4.99 I believe at my target?) but the can is huge and I don't use it every day and the quality is good enough that I don't need to. Suave also has a dry shampoo option that's under 4.00 here, I want to say it was like 2.39 last I saw.. but then being unable to drive any longer, my prices are almost a year old now. :(

    Also you can find bulk dry shampoos on like amazon or ebay for a better price.

    I never was told NOT to use my left hand. But I found that I am a right handed sports player. My husband teases me all the time because I do all the sporty stuff, throw, fish, bowl with my right hand. He tells me to use my left since I'm left handed, but when I do I end up sucking, mostly probably because I'm so used to doing it right handed.

    I feel amazing!!! Unfortunately though, my mind still sees my former body so that's been hard to deal with.

    1. This year it will be 48 years for us. Yes, I was a child bride.

    2. No tattoos except for the pencil mark in my leg from falling on a………pencil. I would kind of like to get eyeliner tattooed.

    3. I’ve lost and found at least 100 pounds.

    4. I have traveled a lot around the world. I have been in most of the states but will probably never get to North Dakota.

    5. I love to read and spend too much time at this hobby.

    @londoncuppa I am the ONLY rightie in my house. My husband and both daughters are left handed. As is most of my husband's extended family. Both his parents, both his siblings. His Grandma and Aunt (on the Dad's side) are as well.

    I tell people that my oldest daughter is a "hard left" she cannot learn to do things like tying knots, or even holding knives properly from righties, she needs to see a leftie do it. She had a lot of issues with mirror image and backwards writing too. We have a left handed bass for her to play for the school band. My youngest prefers to do certain things with her right hand. She always writes with the left, but draws both left and right and eats with her right hand.

    1. I haven't driven in probably 2 years... not a fan of driving, we live in the city of Chicago where I don't have to and my son is 17 and will drive any chance you give him.
    2. I don't feel hot, cold or pain on my entire right side (neck down).
    3. I go barefoot as often as I can.
    4. Fall is my favorite season.
    5. I'm attempting to crochet. My grandmother crocheted and made me a great blanket that I love. Nothing compares to a crocheted blanket. My kids want their own blankets and since no one else knows how to crochet, I'm trying to figure it out. I have Clara's done and halfway through Alex's. Very basic, but would love to attempt something more complex soon.

    I have one, but rarely drive... similar story. I was in a bad accident when I was fourteen, since then I've had no real interest in driving, I don't want the responsibility of it.

    I have an old camera and globe addiction!

    Same... it's a necessity.

    Same!

    My daughter's eyes are the same! She never knows what to put on forms... she usually goes with grey though.

    @tkradtke - why don't you feel pain on the right side? injury? I'd love to not feel pain on my right side. It's the one where most of my fibromyalgia pain is.

    Sorry you're hurting today. Fibromyalgia is not fun... HUGS!

    I broke my neck when I was 14, I lost all movement on one side, and all sensation on the other. Once the swelling went down, I got the movement back on my left side, but never got full sensation back on my right. It has it perks, but I have to be careful around hot stuff. :-)
