I have been wanting to blog about some nsv's I have had lately but haven't gotten around to it..
so first through the format
calories 1560...all good ones. no crap today.
exercise: 4 mile walk-150 situps and twenty minutes with Jack lalanne.
good one. get around to that.
I watched little house on the prairie and remembered how much I loved that show when I was growing up...it showed me what a 'normal' family could look like.
Biggest one is my daughter.
She got a letter in the mail inviting her into the national honor society..she just has to apply and get accepted. she doesn't have a lot of charity work under her belt...but she will apply anyways.
I was thinking of putting her in at the humane society. That way she could get her charity hours in doing something she feels passionate about.
She also received a letter from recruiters from the coast guard talking about her 'impressive' asvab score and the college they offer.
Why is this an nsv?
My kids have been my top priority since they were born.
My aim was to give my oldest the variety of opportunities I didn't have.
(my youngest too, but we are still working on grammar here)
I knew we wouldn't have the money to buy everything for her
that was the key.
If I could give her an excellent education, it would open so many doors for her.
Doors she just had to walk through.
She has worked so hard.
I had one door.
She has so many openings, it's not even funny.
She will have choices, and she will get to decide where her life goes.
For me this is a great victory.
When I saw that letter, I remember being in high school and watching my friends getting inducted.
I never realized what I wasn't getting...what I didn't know and what nobody told me till it was too late to turn that corner.
My mom just wanted me to 'not get pregnant'.
c's and d's in my freshman and sophomore years.
a's and b's in my junior and senior years.
That wasn't getting me any kind of scholarship.
I joined the army.
Education is the key to everything.
my thighs no longer rub together. Yeah!
well, enough of that.
Hope you all have a great
