21st Birthday Party: Tell Us Your Fun Fact

Denise
Every day this week, we’re celebrating Caregiving.com’s 21st birthday with activities and prizes, including grand prizes which include a free seat at an upcoming Certified Caregiving Consultant training program and care packages which include sessions with two of our Certified Caregiving Consultants.

Today, for a chance to win one of our daily prizes and one of our grand prizes, tell us a fun fact about yourself. We spend so much time talking caregiving responsibilities and tasks–let’s take a break by sharing something about ourselves unrelated to caregiving.

Share your fun fact about yourself in our comments section, below. I’ll choose a random winner to receive “I Want You to Know”, a straight from the heart guide to prepare your legacy of love by Leslie Cottrell Simonds. Leslie's dad was the catalyst for her first book, "I Want You to Know," a straight-from-the-heart planning guide for all of life's eventualities. A second book about preparing for death vigils will be published late summer 2017. Leslie is a death and grief coach, author, speaker, and artist, and lives north of Boston. She has trained with INELDA as a death doula, Sue Fredericks as a grief coach, and Denise Brown as a Caregiving Consultant, to name just three areas of study.

I’m looking forward to reading your fun facts!

For the past 2 years I have been writing a musical about three caregivers called \"Taking Care.\"

I will take a picture and post it. I thought I wold get something small but the lady who did the tattoo was an artist and she took three of my cross necklaces and used questions she asked me to design an entire tattoo. I love it. Would get another one but they are expensive.

I began making a schedule of dances to live bands within 10 km of where we live. I started expanding it to include 3 to 4 dances a week and began sharing it with people I met at dances. My husband danced very little but loved country music. So now he gets to listen to Country Music regularly; he now does not just walk to music but dances too. We now have a circle of people who know my husband and will greet him at the dances; some even come to talk to him for a few minutes. So now I have added social planner to my skills.

Growing up I was the kid in the neighborhood who loved hanging out with the \"grown ups\". Instead of playing with the kids my age, I preferred talking to the moms and the grandmas. I had 4 older neighbor ladies I would go visit. I played with the kids when I had to but I always enjoyed talking to adults. Even now I have a love for the elderly. I guess being raised with my grandmother in the house is why.
