Seems I have been tagged by Hoopy. Well here goes

The Rules:
1. You have to post the rules before you give your answers.
2. You must list one fact about yourself beginning with each letter of your middle name. (If you don't have a middle name, use your maiden name).
3. After you are tagged, you need to update your blog with your middle name and your answers.
4. At the end of your blog post, you need t tag one person for each letter of your middle name. (Be sure to leave them a comment telling them they've been tagged and that they need to read your blog for details.)

Middle and Maiden name are the same letter count, maiden name has better letters; Stoudt

Photo Shoot

I had some 'me' time today. I didn't know what to do. I decided to pick up my camera and head downtown. I was hoping to get boats on the intercostal, but it was too windy. Instead, I spent two hours walking around and finding interesting things to photograph. My thoughts were on composition, trying to remember the rule of thirds to make the photo catch your eye. The slide show below is what I ended up with.

Hardest thing I did this week!

It has been exactly a week. Last Wednesday, I had a meeting with my assistant principal. I was asking for help. I can't say anything about the why or what. But I can say, it was very hard for me to do this. I like to be seen as capable, an asking for help means I am not capable. 

It was the right thing to do. I left the meeting feeling better. Asking for help isn't such a bad think after all.

Typical PreTeen

Grabbed the shot while we were at Disney a couple weeks ago. I love it. It is sassy and 'enough mom' at the same time. Gotta love the preteen years.

New Stove

It is Wednesday. Blog update day, or so someone has randomly decided! lol 

I am getting a new stove installed by Michael right now. Our old oven was not cooking correctly. I made an off-handed comment about needing gas. He moved a propane tank to our house and bought a new stove today. He is almost done with the installation and conversion of the stove to propane. :) :) :) 

I haven't cooked with gas in years, but know it is so much better. Silly thing to be excited about, but I am happy about a new stove.

Oh yeah, and the thoughtful husband who bought and installed it for us! ((hug))
