Update and Tags! :D

Tue Mar 17, 2015, 3:47 AM
Hello!! :wave:

I am still alive here in my corner of the world. :)

Just a quick update:
Some of you know that I started a virtual academy for my kids this year. So we can be part of the public school system (still participate in sports and things) but not be in the actual public schools. That has been going well.

However, work has been rough. We have had a major loss of staff. By far the worst it has ever been. I have been bringing my kids to work, trying to do school and work at the same time. And on top if it all we are under our annual state inspection...

And now I am also trying to prepare for a visit from family this week. :faint: My house is.... a disaster! :( I am trying to get that taken care of before they come. Ahhhhhh!!!

I am hoping by the end of this month to regain some of our normal around here! Prayers for that would be MUCH appreciated!!

I also wanted to thank everyone for all the wonderful birthday wishes!! :glomp: And, I want to show off this lovely gift by the incredibly sweet InkyRose
Day-Dreaming by InkyRose
And this amazing and adorable gift from my dear friend, mirz-alt
Jurre and Emrah Cupcakes by Captain-Savvy
Thank you so, so, much!!! :tighthug::glomp::tighthug:

Now, this morning, I am taking a break from all my craziness to have just a little bit of fun!

I was tagged twice by the lovely :iconinkyrose: :love:
One for a question and answer, which I will do below, and for the Pen/Marker Challenge. :la:

1) You must post these rules.
2) Each person has to share 10 facts about themselves.
3) Answer the 10 questions asked by the person who tagged you and make up 10 questions for the 10 you tag.
4) Choose 10 people and put their icons in your journal.
5) Go to their page and inform them that they have been tagged by you. ain't nobody got time for dat. Mentions feature and all that
6) Not something like "You are tagged if you read that".
7) You have to legitimately tag 10 people.
8) No tag-backs.
9) You can't say that you don't do tags.
10) You MUST make a journal entry!  (Please feel free to ingnore 9 and 10. There is no pressure to do this! :))

10 Facts about myself:
1. I am a geriatric nurse.
2. When I was 18 I received my black belt in Tae Kwon Do.
3. I once sang a duet with a friend in a national competition (We didn't win ;) )
4. I play piano.
5. I have a fear of spiders and heights.
6. My favorite book is the Scarlet Pimpernel.
7. I am a severe morning person ( I am usually up between 3-5am).
8. I will be starting violin lessons in two weeks!! :la: So excited for this!!
9. I cheat when I play video games because I hate dying! Lol! :D
10. My favorite fruit is grapefruit.

:iconinkyrose:'s questions:

1. If all music was to be destroyed, what is the last piece that you would listen to?
Probably a classic piano/violin version of Ashokan Farewell. I think the sadness in the song would about sum up how I would feel if I were to lose music. :(
2. If you were a superhero, what would your powers be?
I have always wanted to have the power to turn invisible. :) I think that would be my power.
3. If you could live in any pre-20th century era, which would it be?
I love the medieval period best. But, I know it was not an easy time period to live in, so I would prefer just to visit. :)
4. What is your favourite fairytale?
Beauty and the Beast. Been my favorite since I was a little girl.
5. If you could be a monarch for a day, what would you do?
Wow... where would I start?! Lol! So many things I would like to fix in my country.
6. What kind of music inspires you when you're drawing/painting/writing?
Strangely enough, I really don't listen to music when I draw. :confused: I think it is because I find myself listening and not drawing. Lol! However, I always find classical inspiring. When there are no words a lot more is left to the listener's interpretation. :) One piece I find incredibly inspirational, and I someday want to draw a picture for, is one written by my brother called 'Crystal Rain'. If you are interested in hearing him play it you can find it here: [link] :la: I see so many pictures when I hear this! :love:
7. Do you have any literary crushes- if so, who?
Hehe! Hmmm.... Well Percy Blakeney, of course. Maybe Mr. Darcy or Mr. Rochester? At one time I had a huge literary crush on Hopalong Cassidy. haha!
8. What was the last book/film that made you cry?
Big Hero 6... yeah, I know. Lol!
9. Narnia or Neverland?
Narnia! :D
10.Do you have a question for me?
I am actually going to use the question you asked your friend, because I am curious of your answer. :) What famous artist has been the greatest influence on your own style?

My Questions:
1. When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?
2. What is your biggest fear?
3. Do you have a hero? If so, who is it and why?
4. What is the most unusual thing you have ever eaten?
5. What was the last book you read? Did you like it?
6. What is the most daring thing you have ever done?
7. Would you rather ride a bike, ride a horse, or drive a car?
8. What piece of art/writing/photography in your gallery are you most proud of creating (I want a link!! :la:)
9. Do you have a pet peeve?
10. Are you an introvert or an extrovert.

I tag: (I would love to see your answers, but again, there is no pressure to make a journal or anything! And if you would rather, you may answer below. :) )

And.... my tag for the Pen/Marker Challenge

A short bio: I am a happily married mother of three beautiful children! God is first in my life and always will be! Outside of the home, I am a geriatric nurse. I love my job and feel very blessed to be a part of the lives of some very amazing elderly people. My job is so very rewarding!:) In addition, I am an obsessive reader, I love to write, play piano, and of course draw. My 2011 new years resolution was to stop saying "I wish I could draw" and to actually pursue it! And, I have drawn almost every day since! So keep at it all of you!! I still have sooooo much to learn, but I've also come a long way! Just check out my early work! I left it there to encourage myself and others!

And, lastly... Thank you so much to all the people who have been such an encouragement and support to me! :tighthug: It has really helped me keep going even when I feel so discouraged. Thank you!!

My sister :iconmrinx::iconmyotes: has been a huge encouragement and help to me!! Make sure you visit her!! Her artwork is amazing!
