THE ABC'S OF ME
A – April
My name. Nothing special, but being a month has its privileges.
B – Blogger
Have been blogging for two years now and loving it. I meet the neatest people this way!
C – Christmas fanatic
I ADORE Christmas - all aspects of it. It can't start too soon - I'm the one happy to see the trees in October. I love the Lord and celebrating His life. I also love giving presents, and baking cookies, and stringing lights, and Christmas music, and shopping with my friends for the perfect gift, and the church Cantata, and, and, and…
D – Dieting
Have been on a diet since July. It's coming along. Also started wogging - can't quite call it jogging yet. I do a Slim Down Sunday meme if you want to link up with me and get encouragement on your weight-loss journey.
E – ECU grad
Earned my BA in Colorado. My MA came from East Carolina University. A Master's was on my bucket list.
F – Mrs. Fix-it
I've learned by trial and error to fix most simple electrical, plumbing, wood working, paint, tile, etc. issues. Love to DIY and save the bucks while learning a new skill.
G – Loves God
God is the center of everything. He is my guiding Light - I just need to let Him lead which is hard for someone who's a bad follower. Don't know how to get through this life without Him.
H – Homeschooler
Have been homeschooling for four years now and loving the ride. My two youngest and I explore academia with a hands-on approach. Just started homeschooling our first year of high school. It goes by so fast!
I – College Instructor
This was on my bucket list too! I've taught at physical locations and online. Love both. Online allows me to be home schooling my two favorite students, so that's my choice for now.
J – Jack-of-many-trades
I've been a Technical Engineer, Marketing Coordinator, Corporate Instructor, Art Teacher (painting), Mural Painter, Lab Coordinator, Middle School Teacher, College Instructor, Technical Writer... And that's just the jobs I've gotten paid for.
K – Four Kids
My babies - 20, 18, 14 and 12!
L – Lifelong Learner
Life is for learning! I can't imagine not learning something new at all times. I think that's why I homeschool - I get to learn right along with the kids. What fun! Already thinking I may need to add a new degree...
M – Mother
My most important and sacred role. Thank you Lord for giving me my four blessings.
N – Nerd
Love technology, have a quirky sense of humor and really dig learning. What can I say - no pocket-protector, but I'm a nerd!
O – Opinionated
Ummm... Read my blog. You'll see...
P – Painter
Nothing like a newly painted room to really make the house shine! I also do murals although I haven't in a looong time. Should break out the brushes and canvas one day soon.
Q – Quick Witted (when awake…)
Sarcasm is in my genetics. It comes fast and furious. Sometimes that's a good thing, and sometimes... Well, taking my foot out of my mouth is another skill of mine.
R – Reader/Reviewer
Love to read! I wish I could find a way to read and crochet, read and cook, read and sleep... I need a contraption that lets me read while doing other things. That would be great! I review books, obviously, and anything else they send my way. (see Opinionated above... lol)
S – Scientist
Science is the way I see life. From the breakdown of the human anatomy to the molecular makeup of the atmosphere - it's all so fascinating! It takes an amazing creator to bring all this connectivity to the universe.
T – Taekwondo
High green belt at the moment - doing it with my two youngest. We love it! I'm excited to get to blackbelt in about a year. Just need to be able to run that three miles in thirty minutes - hence the wogging...
U – Unusual
I'm not your average mama bear. My kids tell me that all the time. A little quirky or odd maybe, but, I hope, in a good way!
V – Values Friendship
I've been blessed with some amazing friends. They come in and out of life during their seasons, but they are always such a value while they are here.
W – Wife
Married fifteen years now to the man that puts up with me and loves me through it all. He's amazing!
X – eXperiential Learner
I'd rather do it than read about it or hear about it. Experience is what makes memories, builds skills, and creates opportunities.
Y – Yarner
A good friend has taught me to crochet. I wish I could crochet AND read... I said that, didn't I? Anyway, there's something cathartic about taking a string and soon beginning to develop a hat or a scarp or an afghan. I like keeping my hands busy, and there are such pretty yarns out there!
Z – Zealous about Education
Too bad I didn't bring my soapbox or you'd get an earful about the state of education in this country. Education is the ticket to success - why we are falling behind is beyond me! Ok, no soapbox... You get the picture.
