Middle Name Meme and Stuff

Annie and Momma tagged me for this meme awhile back. Today seemed like a good day to post it! I am not posting or following the rules. And I'm not tagging anyone, but please play along if you want. Now, if you remember, Jenna is a variation of my middle name, so I am going to use Jenna.

J- Joy. Joy is very important to me--especially after a couple bouts with clinical depression. I may not always be happy, but there is always joy in my heart--it may be deep down and harder to find some days, though. !!

E- E? Who can think of anything that starts with an E? Oh, I know--Elegant. I have always wanted to be this, and to have an elegant home. I'm not, and I don't, but it would be just lovely.

N- Not fair that I have to do two of these. Normal. I am just about as normal as they come--average, average, average.

N-Nurturing - towards my kids and hubby anyway. My heart's desire, above all things, is to be a good wife and mother.

A-Alias--Jenna is my alias for this blog. Can you tell I used a dictionary to find this word?

Lately, I have been reading some blogs about this person whipping up a knitted hat for her daughter, or this person sewing two of the most adorable corduroy skirts for her daughters, or another person making tons of Christmas-y things for her family. What is up with me? I have got to get my craftiness on--or else stop reading these blogs that make me feel like I need to. I've done next to nothing this week--well, other than helping with homework, JBQ (junior bible quiz), housework, bill-paying, chauffeuring, cooking, and other normal mom things. I think what I am going to do is get my photo albums updated. I used to be a scrap-booker--but that died out about the time the twins were born. Now, I count myself blessed to have all our pictures from the past twenty years chronologically placed in regular photo albums--well, I don't have the last year and half done. That should be my project, don't you think--to finish up the past year and a half? I'll let you know if I actually do it. Don't hold your breath.

Loved your word choices. I think you are elegant and normal is a good thing! Nice is a good one too!

You can do it! I have all our pics scrapbooked up until last February. My goal is always to not get more than a year behind. So, you can be sure that sometime in January, my kids will go to Grandma's house and I will work like crazy on pics all weekend!

I love the meme. And I too am waaay behind on my photo albums. It's on my project list too. Let me know if you really start getting yours done so that way maybe it will make me feel bad enough to actually start doing mine. I enjoyed your post. See ya.

Bible Q's are three hours away for you guys?! Ugh!
I will remember that and not complain about 40 min for jbq and 90 for tbq.
Wow! That must make for one very long day for you guys. I guess you get a lot of practice in on the way though. : )
Thanks for stopping by!

I read some of those crafty blogs too, and get discouraged. I get a crafty urge every once in a great while but that's the exception rather than the rule. I do scrapbook, but my books are plain-jane. I just didn't get the crafty gene and am insanely jealous of people who did.

Wish you lived here and we motivate each other...or not. LOL!

Cute youyou! Okay, as to are way above - you don't have the issues that most people have today - besides, in my life you are WAY above average. Scrapbooking? Decided to do my first after we went to Africa 5? years ago. After about 10 pages I decided it would take the rest of my life to pare down 30 rolls of film and get them in the book. After much guilt and stress for not finishing (I can't stand things left undone) I finally decided I wasn't going to do it, and am now quite content not to. I have started a new kind of scrapbooking, which I will show you when my first one is done. It is much more to my liking!
