I wasn't heavy all my life.
But you couldn't call me "skinny" either.
In the Army I was never on profile for being heavy.
Had to get the "tape-test" once, but that was muscle, right?
I was in the First Desert Storm - at age 30ish!
I built a house once. Lots of hard work.
Learned framing, plumbing, and electrical work.
This is age 40ish
Not skinny, not fat - just "husky" or something.
Not just a photo op - I really did the work!
I have also had rescue kitties and raised chickens.
I'm very balanced in traditional male/female roles...
Been a Nurse-Nanny for little kids in wheelchairs
and cared for little old ladies (dear old mom)
I went to University, but was always "in trouble"
for goofing off.....
I never had to study or practice *yawn*
(music major - Sigma Alpha Iota, and Alpha Lambda Delta)
I had an "angry phase," early in my 20's.... but no more.
So that's how I understand what people sometimes go through.
Maybe I'm going through a fat - life crisis right now.
It's like a mid-life crisis, but for Heavies.
And now for the "accomplishment part"
This is, after all, partial fulfillment of a blog award!
One accomplishment I am pleased with is:
One year, I took a Sabbatical.
Almost a year off. And I read the Dictionary!
Also read the Hebrew Bible "aka Old Testament."
Which I had never read before. Amazing.
Being a Hospice Nurse is one of my greatest accomplishments.
I never studied in Nursing School, either.
Army Nursing School, at that!
3 of my instructors recommended me for Army Medical School!
(And as a student, not a cadaver, eh?)
One accomplishment might be
the nearly 20 years of reading A Course In Miracles.
Just now starting to wrap my mind around what it says....
So that's kind of 7 things about me....
I am so shy - I even disappoint myself at times.
So please forgive me if you have been kind enough to
give me an award, and I never did anything with it.
This is my attempt to correct all that.
Nothing personal - just my inability to respond
as I should, and as I wish I could!
Thanks for reading !
Hope your day is warm and cozy!
