Hi Everyone,

My sweet friend Puakalehua gave me this award for my blog.

So, part of this award is telling you 8 things about me, so here we go!

1. I love my life. I have the best hubby named Todd. He supports my scrappy habits and loves me at my best and y worst. I am blessed to have two super kids-Shantel and Bronson. And adore my Grandbaby-Kayleigh.

2. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Arthritis, and I have good days and bad days. But I try to live as normal a life as I can. I get tired really fast but if I try not to let it stop me. I may need a nap or a rest but then I get back up and keep going. :>

3. I love to scrap late at night(like until 3am). The house is quiet and I can relax and listen to my girly music while drinking coffee and eating peanut M n Ms. Not everyday, but chocolate with nuts is my favorite candy.

4. Since I scrap or work late at night, I sleep in until 11am sometimes. It's basically only 8 hours of sleep. But my "wake" hours are different. My body seems to feel better at night, and worst in the morning. That is how this habit started, because I am not naturally a night owl. lol

5. I love to listen to my girly music which is Mariah Carey, Leona lewis, Christina Aguilera, but also love Phil Vassar's music. He wrote a song titled "Carlene, believe it or not!

6. I love helping people, and I stay away from negative people and drama. I really honestly, do not have the energy for either one. I am a private person, but once you touch my heart, you are a friend for life.

7. I love my Pug-Brody. He follows me everywhere. He makes me laugh and brings me so much joy!

8. Oh, here's one thing you don't know-I played softball since I was 8, and became an All-Star softball player for 2 years and traveled in the US competing. I can't play anymore, but it sure gave me great memories! I still consider myself a tomboy!

Thanks so much!  I am going to give this award to 3 people:

1. Geordie
2. Dana
3. Bev

So much fun to get to know you a little more Carlene. My Sister has Fibromyalgia amongst other things and she finds she functions best keeping the same kind of hours. Take care!
