I think I was 5 or 6 years of age when my creative mind started to flow. I remember when my mother would come home from work and went to the pantry to prepare dinner. To her surprise, she was unable to find anything she was looking for because I had removed all of the labels on the cans so that everything looked uniform and organized. Just the thought of having torn or different labels on the cans looked messy and disorganized to me. I wanted to give the pantry a “nice clean look”. Unfortunately for my Mother, it didn’t stop there. Other days, she would come home to find the furniture rearranged and staged in different configurations. Whether it was a sofa, chairs or tables moved, I was always looking for something that looked clean and appealing. Something that was out of the ordinary. Thank God for her, my Mom doesn’t live with me anymore!
I was born and raised in Canada and have lived in Texas for 10 years. I’ve been blessed with a wonderful marriage of 25 years and two wonderful sons. While living in Canada, I worked in the HR field in the mutual fund industry in and around the Toronto area for approximately 10 years. Once our boys were born, I stayed home and dabbled in many different fields. I was a self-motivational speaker for children (Coach Barb), worked in the radio industry in sales and voice-over commercials, and operated an advertising business with my husband in the golf industry before moving to Texas. Once we moved to Texas, I had a fun book published, called “Longhorn Lingo – Everything a Longhorns Fan needs to know”. It was a fun book about the lingo associated with the game of football which originated from our time in Canada while the boys played hockey. I really knew nothing about hockey and really embarrassed myself and my husband on several occasions so I decided to get familiar with the lingo associated with each sport.
I have always had a yearning within myself to be neat and organized. Call it OCD if you like (lol),
