A Little About me: I spent many years nursing and when I got totally burnt out I looked for a new career and used my knowledge to proceed with medical sales. I found my niche' and my love. Then suddenly one day I was feeling funny in the office and went to the ER to find I was having a stroke. This happened several times before I was diagnosed with a clotting disorder, Lupus, and Fibromyalgia. I was working hard to get out of that hospital and back to work when I had a heart catheterization blow in my leg, leaving me in ICU and very ill, fighting for my life. I am fortunate to have my life but was forced to go on disability. I spent my days on line and was introduced to blogs with giveaways! Although all this was fun, I was still missing something. I thought and thought and said to myself, having a review/giveaway blog is a lot like sales and marketing. I had to search for products and services to review, write them up, and offer the giveaways. This seems to have filled my void and thus my site was born! I live in Florida with my husband and my DD. DD just got her BA in Biz. I also have a son in the US Navy. I am proud of both. Then there is my spoiled brat Basset named Freddi, the love of my life. My husband and I have been married 15 years and he is my soulmate. Took me 3 times to find him. He had 2 strokes in December so life is interesting in my household. My poor daughter got our of college, got a job, goes to work, then comes home and cooks dinner. I told her it prepares her for marriage and kids. Neither my husband nor I can stand any length of time standing as it kills our backs with pain. I do try and do as much as I can for her. I look forward to meeting others, making new and seeing old friends, and learning what you all have to share.View Thread
