Fellow blogger, Isabelle, had the letter G posted and I volunteered for H. Feel free to let me know if you'd like a letter, too. :)
  • Anyway, H was very suiting for me. My maiden name and married name both start with H, as does my mother-in-law's maiden name.
  • H is for happy: I am sooo happy. I have a wonderful husband that I am still very in love with after almost thirteen years, and hopefully many more. I have two smart, beautiful and kind daughters. I have a nice home, a garden I love and two dogs who make me smile. As well as family in multiple states that I adore.
  • H is for hearing. I have very good hearing. This drives my children crazy, for my bat-like hearing :) can hear them fighting, or getting into something (however rare these events might be...) I can hear. Sometimes the husband and children whisper to tease me...but it's no secret, these ears can hear. :)
  • H is for handy. I am very handy...not with tools mind you, but paper and scrapbooking tools. I have gotten better at scrapbooking and I really enjoy it (although I don't claim to be magazine article fantastic, nor do I sit down and put the time into it that I'd like to because there is always something more to be done around here...)
  • H is for headstrong...yep, my husband would definitely say that describes me....I would firmly disagree. :)
  • H is also for hurry: time is hurrying by. It absolutely flies by with the growth and changes, emotional and physical, in our children. I blink and they're another year older or few inches taller....
  • H is for homework, as well. I am taking classes, as I mentioned, and will soon be heading off this blog to work on the next two lessons.
  • And lastly, H is for healthy. I am still running, and have only missed three or four days since getting the treadmill in February, even running outside in the warm weather we've had. In fact, I ran four miles again yesterday, as well as once earlier this week. I also am trying to limit the meats we're eating for better health. I love meat, don't get me wrong, I will never be a vegetarian. However, organic meat is so stinking expensive that it's just easier to eat meatless or fake meat. :)
Hope you enjoyed the H! :)

i definitely have that h is for headstrong thing going on, too (according to big j) and now that i think of it, good hearing, and fairly healthy right now, and happy, but definitely not so handy, unfortunately! i send my kids down the street to my friend's house for that stuff - school projects and baking and such. :-)

Wow, you've been married for 13 years!!

I'm glad to see that you are so happy. It's not very often that you come across someone who is happy with their life. It seems that it's more in style to complain about everything than it is to appreciate what you have.

You are inspiring!
