What’s something most people don’t understand?

Most people don’t understand why Brett and I kept both houses when we got married. The thing is, he was my third husband and I was his second wife, we both owed on our houses, and neither of us wanted to move. So we stay half of the week at each place. Thins boggles most peoples minds but it works for us. What I’d that old saying, “If it’s not broke, don’t fix it.” This is is. Enough said.

When you were five, what did you want to be when you grew up?

When I was five I wanted to be a Veterinarian. I loved animals. I still do. However, life had other plans for me.

I was married for the first time when I was seventeen. My Mom signed for me but she didn’t want to; she kept asking me, “Are you sure?” And my reply was always the same, “I’m sure, I love him.” At seventeen, I had no clue what love was. This marriage lasted a whole eighteen months and I got my daughter from it. I was eight months pregnant when we divorced. You can’t do that now.

Back then I was working the fast food scene. I worked at Little Italy Pizza, first, then at Burger Chef, and finally at Burger King.

By the time I got married the second time, I was already working at Kroger.

My second marriage lasted twenty years and I got my son from it.

I am now on my third marriage, we’ve been married nearly twelve years, been together almost fifteen. I got my stepdaughter and stepson from it.

I was still working at Kroger when Brett and I got married. All in all, I spent thirty-two years at Kroger. I retired two years ago and am now working in Home Health as an aide.

All of these jobs were a long way from being a Veterinarian.
