10 Things to Know About Me – Nice to Meet You Blog Hop

I have been blogging her at A Boy and His Mom for over a year now and I realized that although my blog is about my life with my son, I have never really told you a lot of just me.  So I decided to come up with a list of 10 fun facts to get to  know me better and get a little insight into what makes me, me.

  1.  My legal name is Cathy, not Catherine as people like to call me.
  2. I grew up in a very small town (pop.1400), so moving to the suburbs of Toronto was quite a stretch for me.
  3. I’ve always had a cat as a pet.  I can’t remember a time in my life that either my parents or I didn’t own a cat.
  4. My public school was so small, that even at only 5ft tall, I was a member of the basketball team.
  5.  In high school I was a bit of a “doer” – I played field hockey, was a cheerleader and was the President of my Prom Committee, among other groups and teams.
  6. Ever since I was 16 years old, I always knew that wanted to be a Mom.  I always said that if at 35 I wasn’t either married or in a committed relationship that I would look into artificial insemination.  It was the one job I always wanted to have.
  7. Ever since I was 16 I have colored my hair.  Grays started coming in way too early.
  8. I have always been a Math person and love doing algebra.  Some people like crosswords or Sudoku, I like algebra.
  9. If I was ever stranded on a deserted island and could only have 1 album, it would INXS – Kick.  (Yes, I am aging myself here.)
  10. My favorite food is Mexican – I could eat it morning, noon and night.

Now that you know a little more about me, I would like you to meet a few great bloggers that I have come to know.  Hop on over to their links below!

  1. I have almost always had a cat as well! We got my family cat when I was about 6, and had her until my second year of college. My parents got a new cat shortly after, but I didn’t have one since I was in apartments, until our current cat found me. She was all tiny and pathetic and alone and I took her in. My (now) husband wasn’t too happy because he didn’t think we needed a cat just then, but we’ve had her for over 6 years now and my boys love her!!

    And I totally relate to the algebra, I love math!


  2. Hi Cathy! This Blog Hop is so much fun! We have a few things in common…I’m a math person too and we are using the same theme! Nice to “meet” you.
