I thought I’d break up the routine and share with you 5 things you might not know about me.
I am an internal processor.
Meaning, that I am quietly learning and processing whatever information is coming at me. Which is a hard way to be when social media demands quite the opposite. I can story tell and laugh about a thing after I have successfully passed through. Whereas other people need to verbally process everything that they are thinking or learning. So if you don’t see me as often on InstaStories it is very likely I am quietly studying…..you.
I have a
love hate relationship with cooking.
On one hand I love being in the kitchen and making delicious food for myself and my family. I am not afraid of the kitchen, nor have I met a recipe that scared me. I own some great knives, cutting boards, and pans. Heres the rub, I hate the cost of food. It’s so expensive that cooking gives me anxiety, and living in the woods means there is not an Aldi around the corner.
I get dressed everyday down to my shoes.
I can’t remember at what age I stopped hanging out in sweats or jammies all day but it was before I had kids. There is something about being ready for anything that makes me a more relaxed person. I even go as far as blowdrying my hair and putting mascara on.
I never wanted to be a homeschooling mom.
Well, some of you may know this about me, but my new readers might find that interesting. I wanted to be anything but a homeschooler. When I started looking into homeschooling the only people I knew of had graduated their kids or were very close to the finish line. I went the most unpopular route I could take at the time, and that has made all the difference. Now 8 grades later and I can’t imagine ever having done anything differently. I truly love being with my kids and being only one of two authorities in their life.
I don’t have an official degree in anything.
After high school, I left for Graphic Design school in Arizona. It was a tech school offering their own variety of diploma, but nothing transferred beyond their school. Unfortunately, I became pretty ill and had to leave before finishing the program. When I returned home and got my life back together I decided to take some classes at our local community college. During this time I was working, fell in love, got married and had children. School became less important than everything else I was doing, so I stopped.
So thats a handful of things that maybe you knew about me or you didn’t know about me.
