Hi, I'm New at This!

I never know how to start out something, especially if it's something where I am introducing myself.  I'm also terrible about talking about myself.  But that's what I'm here for, to introduce myself to the blogging world. So here goes....

Hello, Blogging World!!! 

How was that?  Was that an ok opening?  Now to the really hard hard part, tell everyone about who I am and what I'm doing here.  Who am I?  Well, I was born a poor.... No wait, that's someone else's beginning.  I am Leigh Anne.  Most people think my first name is Leigh, it's not.  It's Leigh Anne.  My beautiful and loving mommma gave me 2 names to be my first name.  With that, I have had a battle with my name my whole life. But I'll write on that on another day. 

I have 5 kids, Katherine, age 24; CaiLeigh, age 24; Dany, age 22; Adrian, age 17 and Christopher, poor kid, will be 16 just 3 days past Christmas. It could have been worse, he was due on Christmas. I have a grandson, Aaron who just turned 1 and a granddaughter, Winter, due in March.  

I have 5 Savannah cats.  Sheba is the mother of Anubis, Nefertiti, Osiris and Zenobia.  Sheba had 1 more baby, Ramses, but he has another home. I was never able to find the right homes for the rest of the gang, so they are mine.  If the right home came around, I would gladly allow the girls to have a new mommy and daddy.  But for now, the kids and mama live with me.  And I belong to them. 

Of course, anyone who does know me knows I love cows!  I have no idea why.  I just do and have since I was about 14 or 15.  I first started to collect cows and pigs, then it changed to just cows.  I have dressed my children in cows, my grandson in cows, and will have my granddaughter dressed in cows too!  I have cow slippers, cow pajamas, more cow stuffed animals than I know what to do with!  I have cow earrings, a cow ring, cow necklace, and even a cow hair thingy.  I have paintings of cows on my walls.  It's safe to say, I love cows.  It's an obsession.

I'm retired and disabled. I'm an Air Force veteran, I was a Ground Radio Maintenance Technician. I served a little more than 10 years.  After I got out of the AF, I worked as a Nursing Assistant.  I did this for about 10 years.  During that time, I also went to school.  I have an Associated degree as a Pharmacy Technician. I only worked as a Pharm Tech for a few years before I started to get sick.  

I have lived lots of places all over the world.  My father was in the Air Force as well.I've lived in the Philippines, England, Germany and several places in the United States.  Currently, I consider Ohio home, though I am living in North Carolina.  I hope to move back home in about 6 months or so.  I miss my family.

I am the person behind Polish Yer Hooves Lacquer.  I started it in September and love nail polish!!  If you haven't tried it, please do.  I promise you will love it.  I offer a mini set of 3 for $11 and mini set of 4 for $15.  Full size bottles range from $7 to $9.  I also offer over 20 different fragrances you can have added to your polish.  Choose from Fresh Cut Roses, Lavender, Lilac, Peppermint, Cinnamon, or many others. So please, give it a try!!

Come on over to Facebook and "LIKE" the Polish Page: here

I plan on this page being about all kinds of things: samples I've received in the mail, new nail polishes I've created and just whatever seems to be a great thing to write about that day.  I never know what may jump into my brain as a great topic for a blog.  I actually do have a lot of ideas. 

Thanks for hanging out and learning all this stuff about me!  Until the next time the cows come 'round!

Moo!!!  Leigh Anne
