Hi, this is my blog for all sorts of pro-life news, statistics, stories, and personal ventings. I am a wife and mother, as well as a nursing student. I I truly believe that abortion has failed women, and will continue to do so as long as it is legal.

The Thing About Me Is...

L. over at homesick home tagged me for a mem. I've never been memtagged before, so I thought it would be fun to do.

Each player lists 8 facts/habits about themselves. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning before those facts/habits are listed. At the end of the post, the player then tags 8 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

...And Away We Go!

1) I graduated Highschool at 16 with honors.

2) I went to a women's college until I realized that I wanted to be a nurse and they didn't have a program. There were other reasons I left, but let's just leave it at that.

3) I am really sickly. I've had 4 surgeries in the past 5 years. No one seems to know what the underlying cause for all of this might be.

4) I'm infertile. (Right as I said that my 2 year old son came running out of his room with a plastic swoard as if to say "what do you call me, chopped liver?!") My theory is that the general sickliness is tied to the infertility, but unfortunately my doctor seems much more concerned with getting me pregnant than figuring out why I can't get that way on my own.

5) I'll never tell you how old I am. That goes for everyone. If you figure it out (eh...not that hard) keep it to yourself! The reason for this is that I *am* young and I don't particularlly want to deal with the assumptions that come along with being married and having a baby at my age.

6) I didn't start out this way, but I am a conservative Pentecostal. That's one assumption I don't mind people making!

7) We're not upc, but sometimes I wish we were. I'm strangely drawn to their lifestyle. In case you didn't know, the upc has "standards" of holiness. These include not cutting your hair, wearing only long skirts and dresses, no make up, no short sleaves, ect. I don't know why I'm drawn to this, but I am.

8) I am a terrible housewife. I've struggled my entire life with clutter. I'm using FlyLady to try to help. Thus far I have a sparkling sink

I tag...anyone who wants to do this. The whole "tagging" thing is too much pressure!


  • Wow, 5 surgeries...I'm sorry to hear that. Why haven't they even tried to find the underlying cause at all? Are there any other doctors or specialists you could see, I wonder?

    As for number 8, we are pretty much identical. I have used Flylady on and off for years. lol I have some months where I can keep the house nice and all that, but some months I feel like the whole house is piling on top of me and I'll never see the light at the end of the tunnel!
    If I actually read and listen to Flylady's advice, I can keep things clean. If I just delete them like spam, the house tends to stay messy.

  • Well, a couple of those surgeries were oral so they didn't really "count".

    The weird thing I have is that I get random tumors and cysts. I've had several ovarian cysts burst, and had a bone tumor removed. No one seems to think anything of this when I tell them.

    I know that the tumor thing might be genetic and, if so, I'll probably have several more in my lifetime. I'm really praying that's not the case since those tumors tend to turn cancerous.

    As for FlyLady. I've definitely seen that actually reading the email helps! I havn't read in a few days and let's just say the house is a bit upside down. I'm just thankful I found her!

  • I am overwhelming proud of Lauren and her sink.
