Just for the fun of it..... I have been tagged.....

I have been tagged by children's author, Suzanne Lieurance. Her blog is at

Being tagged requires you to list 7 things others may not know about you or why you write.

In the spirit of fun, and because everyone needs to have a little fun in the midst of the sadness of terminal illness and health crisis, which is what this blog addresses most of the time, here are my 7 things.

  1. I have three children and 4 step-children, two grandchildren, and 4 step-grandchildren.
  2. My husband and I have been married 25 years.... (and they said it wouldn't last)
  3. I have been an emergency room nurse, school nurse, neonatal nurse, and an adult intensive care nurse in the past 33 years
  4. We have 11 dogs, 5 cats, and 2 alpacas
  5. I owned a quilt shop for 2 years and have a passion for fabric and quilts....
  6. I am also a fabric-olic with enough fabric on hand to last me the rest of my life
  7. I collect journals, books, and fabric.... and I mean piles of each. You can never have too much fabric, I always need a journal for my writing, and I never want to be without a good book.

I have tagged the following blogs for authors and writers I admire and learn from on a daily basis. Check out their blogs for recipes, information, and all around fun information.

Check it out.

Hi, Terri,

Wow! I learned a lot about you that I didn't know. First off - how in the world do you care for so many animals? Do you live on a farm?

You should turn all that fabric into handmade journals - combine two of your passions - and sell them online at (in your "spare" time, of course)!

Happy writing!
