Oops, skipped a day. Okay, plans/dreams/goals etc. SO MANY! But I am going to focus on ones that have stuck around for more than a day, teehee.

- I am going to see this nursing thing through because I think I will really enjoy it and it will be a great thing for my family. There are times where I really miss teaching, but I have not regretted the decision to take time away from that for one second. So here's to hoping I get into the program!!!

- One day I would really like to have my own "space" in our house to do the things I love without forcing my family to look at the unfinished products. I really love to sew, but my 800 square foot house leaves no room for that. I have been thinking of ways to make a designated space, but I just don't think it's going to happen in this house. So for now, I do my sewing at my grandma's when I am there . . . and even there, no designated space.

- You will be glad to know that I have been keeping my house much cleaner! Don't ask me what it looks like right this second, but by the time we go to sleep tonight, it will be nice and tidy. Hopefully by the time Steven gets home.

As far as nicknames, I shall go in chronological order. I will only list the ones that spread.

BUMP - believe it or not, this stuck. When I was about two years old, my grandparents brought me a giant bag of toys for some holiday. I dumped all the toys out and played with the bag for hours. I put it over my head and ran straight into the wall and fell down. They just knew I was going to burst into tears, but I thought it was hilarious, and repeated this action many many times. Bumper, became Bump, and it was all I was known as at church until I was . . . well, old.

SKINSEY - this was a mixture of Skinny and Kinsey and came sometime in early high school. I was rather skinny. There were even a few teachers who called me this. It also got shortened to Skins.

SCHMINS - this is the most pointless nickname of all. I believe it was my dorky guy friends in college that started this because they thought it was funny to but "schm-" on the beginning of everything. And I do mean everything. But it sounded extra great with my name. So I became Schmins. This also spread like wildfire. I don't hear it much anymore except when I see a few certain peeps from college. But I keep it alive as my "gamer name" on Xbox. Because that is where it was documented from the beginning with my dorky guy friends.
