I received an email from a good friend from high school this morning. It was a meme, sort of. I had to email back to her one word which I think describes her. I chose strong. This particular friend works full time at a third shift job as a hospital lab tech. She is raising her two daughters, one who has ADHD and one who is four (and we all know what that age is like). She has gone to school for most of her adult life, while working and raising her child(ren). Her husband is good and supportive, but as all marriages go, things get rocky. She has remained strong through all of that.

I then emailed the meme out to several of my friends whose addresses were in my book and have received a couple. My mom says LOVE, my sister-in-law says I’m genuine, another good friend says I’m beautiful, and the friend I mentioned above says that I am “Mommilicious”. LOL!

So, I’m fishing for compliments here, Friends. If you know me (online or in person) fairly well, bring it on. Give me one word that describes me. And then email all your friends and fish for compliments for yourself. It is very fun!

Use this text in your emails. Or post this to your blog. 🙂
Game is on! And you’re it!!

Describe ME in one word.. just one single word. Send it to me and to me only.

Then send this message to all your friends and see how many strange & interesting things they say about you. This is [supposed to be] really fun – you decide.

Here’s how to Play:

1. Hit the reply key and send me my one word.

2. Then return to this message, and forward it to your friends
(including me) and see what people say about you when limited to one word!!!

The Game is On!

We made a concrete decision. I’m going back to school, if I get enough financial aid to swing the books and tuition. I might consider student loans, but I really don’t want to. I will have a decent scholarship going in, but it won’t cover everything. I’ve filed my aid form, applied to the college of my choice, and had my transcripts sent over from the community college I received my associates degree from.

This is exciting news for me. I love school. Mr. Nutt knows how much I love school and has been encouraging me to go back for a couple of years now. It never felt like the right time though. However, I’ve really been praying about it lately and felt that the answer was “Yes, now is the right time.”

I’m planning on a Family Studies major and an American Sign Language minor. I have a real passion for helping people who are under-prepared for the events that life sometimes hands them. A Family Studies major will give me the background I need to get my foot firmly in the door at places that provide such services, as well as guided, valuable experience. I’m doing the ASL because I think it is what God has always wanted me to do. Even before I became a Christian, I had a desire to learn ASL and become fluent enough to become an interpreter. Since becoming a Christian, that desire has become even stronger and at times…more urgent.

We’re still going to homeschool. As a matter of fact, because of my enthusiasm of the last few days, F1 has researched his own future collegiate pursuits and is inspired to buckle down and get to work on his maths and sciences. He now sees, through researching his proposed degrees, the type of knowledge he needs to succeed in those classes and has scheduled out a plan to get to where he needs to be before he starts high school coursework next year. He’s inspired and excited.

If everything falls into place, I’ll begin in January. If not, I’ll begin whenever God makes the funds and time available. I’m excited!

Why I Love My Hubby

I found this meme at The Surrendered Scribe and thought that I might enjoy posting my answers. I hope you enjoy reading them!

Grab the graphic and insert with these rules, in your post.
Give at least 5 reasons why you love your hubby. List more if you want.
Tag 5 people (or more) to play along and link to their blogs in your post.
Then visit those women’s blogs and leave them a comment on any of their posts.

1.He respects me. Mr. Nutt has always valued my opinion and listened to my ideas with the absolute attention.

2.He is a surprising romantic. He doesn’t regularly bring home flowers and chocolate, but every once in a while, I get a great surprise. I think this is great.

3.He is a great dad. He loves and respects his children, even when they don’t make the best choices. They all know that he is there for them, from the baby to the thirty year old.

4.He supports me in what I think I need to do. He has always encouraged me to achieve my goals, whether they be cleaning out the kitchen cupboards or going back to school (more on that later!) or implementing something new in our homeschool.

5.He loves the Lord. He doesn’t attend church, doesn’t sing praise and worship music, and doesn’t read the Bible as much as I think he should. But he loves our God and is one of the most Godly men that I know – his love for others tells me so.

Okay, your turn. I’m tagging Wardeh at Such Treasures, Kim at T’mahk Too, Rach at Pilgrim’s Progress (when you get to it Rachel – after all, you should have time for a silly meme with all that world traveling going on!), Lacy at Razor Family Farms, and Aubree at Don’t Mess with the Aubrinator. If I didn’t tag you, don’t feel left out! Just answer anyway. Don’t forget to let me know when you’ve answered so I can check it out.
