You are visitor # Thanks for popping in!
My name is Victoria Ellen Smith Montague. I am 32 years old. I was born on January 29, 1968 - an Aquarian for the Astrology buffs - in Philadelphia, PA. I have an older sister and 2 older brothers. My family moved from Philly to Darby, PA in 1973 when I was 5 and I lived there until 1995. I went to Blessed Virgin Mary elementary school until 6th grade, then transferred to Darby Colwyn Junior High School for 7th, 8th & 9th grades and finished my schooling at Penn Wood High School in Lansdowne, PA.
I have been married for 13 wonderful years to Chris, my high school sweetie. We started dating when I was 13 years old (yes ... I know that's young) and he was 18. We married in 1987 when I was 19 and on October 5, 1988 we welcomed our oldest boy, Barry Christian, into our lives. On April 26, 1990 our second boy, Devon Matthew, was born. And finally on September 3, 1993 (9/3/93 ... like the date? Easy to remember!) our daughter, Anastasia Victoria, was born. Now, for those of you just getting to know me, my sons names are a direct relation to some of my interests. Barry was named after my all time favorite singing star, Barry Manilow and Devon's name came from the TV show "Knight Rider" (the one with the talking Firebird Trans Am known as KITT or Knight Industries Two Thousand) ... the character in charge of Knight Industries was Devon Miles, played by the late Edward Mulhare of "The Ghost and Mrs. Muir" fame. My daughter was named by my husband - and she was named after the Russian Grand Duchess Anastasia.
As I said earlier, we moved from Darby, PA in 1995 to a quaint little Victorian town called Townsend, in Slower, Lower Delaware. Our town has about 300 people in the town limits. We live in a Federalist style house built in the 1850's. It is the third oldest house in town. Barry is in 5th grade getting ready to move to 6th, Devon is in 4rd grade getting ready to jump to 5th and Anastasia (Stasi) is in 1st grade getting ready to go to 2nd. The children have their own page now, called "'Bearing' with Asperger's Syndrome" because all 3 children have been diagnosed with thei disorder.
I have recently started my own business, Petasia Professional Pet Sitting Services. I visit pets in the comfort of their own home while their owners are on vacation or if their owners have to work late. I have discovered it is a very lucrative business because folks do not want their babies left in some cold pen with different food and smells. So they call me ... and I am one of just two pet sitters in my area so the field is WIDE open!
My interests are pretty varied. I am a Brownie Scout Leader for my daughter's troop. Pets - pets pets pets ... I have many. I own 8 cats, 5 dogs, 3 hermit crabs & 1 rabbit. Yes, I plan on having a pet page! My favorite recording stars are, of course, Barry Manilow, Rockapella, & Sean Altman (who was an original Rockapella band member until he left the band last year). I am an Amusement Park FANATIC! I crave Amusement Parks! Roller coasters are my passion but I will ride just about anything that moves! I like to watch tv too ... I love classic tv (pitch here for TV Land).
Well that just about does it for information about me. As I add pages and links you should have some interesting reading. I also plan on adding a few pics as soon as I get some taken with my digital camera ... so keep checking back!!
