My name is Stacy, I'm 41 and I live in Texas. I am the youngest of 5. My siblings were 13, 14, 19 and 24 when I was born. My first five years were filled with the greatest 60s and 70s music around blaring all the time thanks to my then teenage brother and sister. My brother had tons of records and I listened to them every chance I got. I was allowed to stay home alone in the summer when I was around 8-12. The lady next door was my sitter but she let me hang out in my house and would just come check on me. Its was fabulous. I sat around and ate and watched television all summer!
My husbands name is Lance and he is in the Tx Army Guard and went to Iraq for a year. We have 3 boys Cody is 21, Trevan is 11 and Grant is 7.
We have two dogs Simona and Moose also we have two cockatiels names Jax and Cate.
We also have one boring turtle. We had two but Grant put him on the washing machine and the next minute he was gone.
As for jobs, I was a cheerleading coach from 1990 until 2007. I owned my own program from 1998 to 2007. I retired in 2007.I was a photographer in high school and our year books are loaded with pictures I took. I continued that hobby well into adulthood. In 2004 I opened a free gallery of my "stock" type photos. My photos have been used in tons of stuff. Ive been the cover of at least 3 books that I know of. A handful of magazines, My photos have been used in two games, hundreds of advertisements and one was recently featured on Good Morning America.
While my husband was in Bosnia I bought Photoshop and taught myself. I got so good I began teaching online classes.
My main thing right now is home schooling my kids. Cody is out of school but Trevan is in 6th and Grant is in 1st. I started home schooling with Cody way back in 1992 so its really not a challenge anymore. Its great fun and I enjoy having my kids with me pretty much all the time.
I collect movies and I have over 1000 of them. Do you know how much room that takes up? As I said in my bio I'm slightly obsessed with Oscar. I never miss him and I have stuffed lots of Academy Award trivia in my head. I love old stuff and collect barbies, sesame street stuff, star wars stuff, and tons of other stuff I don't need. Ill be sure and post some pix soon.
Future plans are to sell our house (were packing now) and buy an RV and be full timers.

The pledge of allegiance was originally written in 1892 by Francis Bellamy, a socialist magazine writer. When he wrote it for an children’s magazine, he also described a salute that he thought would be appropriate during its recital.
The pledge was aimed towards children, and the magazine also gave free flags away to schools, where the pledge was originally recited. The salute they were taught to give, with one stiff arm outstretched toward the flag, was deemed the “Bellamy salute” after its creator (who had gotten the idea from a salute that the Romans had done).
In the early 1940s, it was noticed that the salute bore a resemblance to a certain other salute being used in Germany at the time (which was based off of the same original Roman salute). As a result, it was formally replaced by Congress with the now-customary hand-on-heart during the pledge.

Actor Patrick Swayze has reportedly started saying goodbye to family and friends after learning his cancer has spread to his liver.
The Dirty Dancing and Ghost star, who in January was told he had pancreatic cancer, has started preparing himself for death, reports say
"Patrick recently got word that the cancer had spread to his liver and that is what his doctors said would begin the countdown to the end," a source told National Enquirer magazine.
"Patrick knew it was coming because he was suffering increased weakness.
"At times, he was so weak that he could barely walk without feeling faint. Sometimes he feels out of breath and has to sit down."
Swayze, 56, told Lisa, his wife of 33 years, and his brother Donny that he doesn't have long to live.
"Lisa phoned Donny in Los Angeles and told him he need to come to Chicago, where Patrick has been filming TV show The Beast. She was crying and scared Donny to death," the source told National Enquirer.
"Donny got the impression his brother was already on his deathbed because Lisa was saying Patrick wanted to say goodbye. She couldn't stop crying."
Swayze has been undergoing pioneering Cyberknife radiotherapy at California's Stanford University Medical Centre, and had been making a steady recovery from the illness.
He has finished filming The Beast in Chicago, where he has been putting in 12-hour days. He went to a party earlier this week to celebrate with Lisa and Donny.
He stayed for one-and-a-quarter hours sitting on a couch the entire time, happily talking to people.
Swayze's wife "mingled a little more than Patrick did, leaving the couch to grab a drink or talk to people, but mostly she remained at his side" a source told the US magazine.
"Patrick let the party-goers come to him, never circulating around the room and rarely even standing up, but when others did come to him, he chatted at length with many of them."
In October, his production team reported Swayze had missed only a day and a half of work.
"I'm still fine to work, I haven't changed - oh, I have changed, what am I saying? It's a battle zone I go through. Chemo, no matter how you cut it, is hell on wheels," he told The New York Times.

I was sad to learn that things are not looking to good about Farrah's health. Long time partner Ryan O'Neill. Ryan tells People Magazine "The treatment has pretty much ended," that the cancer has pretty much spread throughout her body and "She stays in bed now," O'Neal said. "The doctors see that she is comfortable. Farrah is on IVs, but some of that is for nourishment." Farrah also lost her all of her golden hair. While O'Neal is trying to stay hopeful, he is also dealing with the possibility of living without Fawcett. O'Neal's candid interview comes just as Fawcett prepares to talk about her illness in "Farrah's Story."
The two-hour documentary, shot by Fawcett and good friend Alana Stewart, airs next Friday, May 15.
"It was never meant to be a documentary," said Stewart. "Farrah just took her little hand-held camera to the doctor one day."
