First Entry: A Little About Me

So I sit here in front of my computer with great trepidation as I prepare to make this first blog entry. Why? I have no clue since I know no one is reading this and maybe no one will ever show interest in my words. I've spent all this time setting up my blog site, making it look nice only to stare at it blankly wondering what the hell should I write?!

I could start with an introduction but I guess that would be too predictable. I could share some profound insight-too bad my brain in numb at the moment. I guess it's boring introduction after all.
I'm a 33 year old woman living in Minnesota with my great love "A". We are quickly approaching our 10th anniversary. WOW, I can't believe that! The years have flown by so fast and we have be insanely happy (I know- too mushy). We just had this conversation a couple nights ago about our relationship and we agree that the key for us is the fact we have had at least one great laugh together everyday-even laughing through tears. We have our children: 2 cats and 4 dogs. We are involved in animal rescue and foster and rehabilitate puppy mill dogs. I get called on to transport dogs through Minnesota, South Dakota, Wisconsin and Iowa. Some are moving to foster homes but my favorite transports are the ones where I get to bring a dog to their new family. I've been trying for several years to get into rescue and this year I really got in big's been keeping me super busy but it's the most rewarding and fulfilling experience of my life.
I'm a small town girl who couldn't wait to get out of the pigeon-hole I was born into; a sarcastic smart-ass, cautious and distrustful of new people, and I've been referred to as a "hard-ass" too.
