This is totally last minute. I was just perusing the blogosphere, when I saw this neat little blog hop going on. One of the hosts is Stephen Tremp. If you want to participate, go see him and sign up.
So, for those of you who don't know me, let me introduce myself with this official bio from my webpage:
Sherry Ellis is a freelance writer and children's author. Her book, That Mama is a Grouch, was honored as a finalist in the Parenting/Family category of the 2010 USA Book News Awards and as a finalist in the Parenting/General category of the 2011 International Book Awards. It was also awarded first place in the Parenting category of the 2011 Pinnacle Book Awards.

Blah, blah, blah. Now for the interesting stuff: I'm a mom, of course. I have two lovely kids and 26 pets. (Don't ask!) I like SCUBA diving (I was a PADI Scuba instructor in my past life AKA before kids), I enjoy hiking, biking, travelling, gardening, writing, and playing and teaching my instruments. I used to do arts and crafty things, too, like scrapbooking and crossstitching, but honestly, I just don't have time to do that stuff anymore.
What about you? Who are you, and what do you like?
