I'm a Versatile Blogger!

Maria, a.k.a. DiZneDiVa nominated me for the Versatile Blogger award. I am so honored to be told that I have inspired her.

She says the rules are as follows:

Thank the person giving the award

Thank you so much, Maria! You made my night.

Share 7 things about yourself.

1. I have two parrots, Liberty and Kumba. I adore them with all of my heart. Liberty is sitting on my head right now, preening my hair.

2. I am a college student. I dropped out the first time through, so I decided to go back to school in my early 30's. I only have three classes to go until I have my Associate's Degree! I'm taking American Politics and Strategies for College Success this upcoming semester. However, I still have no idea what I want to be when I grow up.

3. I am a roller coaster junkie and I was even a member of the Florida Coaster Club for several years.

4. I never planned or wanted to get married. I met Scott when I was 22 and we lived together for several years before he asked me to marry him By that point I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with him so I said yes!

5. I am a licensed ham radio operator. I never use the radios anymore but my call sign is KG4PGE.

6. I have secret dreams about becoming a registered dietician because I LOVE learning about nutrition, food science, and diet. It's my true passion. I never really thought that anyone would listen to a fat nutritionist, so I put that dream aside. With every pound I lose though, I think about pursuing that dream again. I would love to work with bariatric patients.

7. have major texture issues and my husband thinks I may be mildly autistic. I CANNOT touch sand or dirt with my feet. It completely skeeves me out. I hate a lot of foods that most people like, such as Rice Krispie Treats, raised donuts, eclairs, mushrooms, rice pudding, French toast, water chestnuts, and raw tomatoes. I can't touch chalk or chalkboards. Other than that...I'm pretty normal. ;-)

Hey, thanks for mentioning me! I feel all warm and fuzzy inside!

We're about the same amount of classes away from our AA's! I know I could finish them but it's hard to find the desire when I still don't know what the heck I wanna do!! I just want someone to tell me what my dream job is so I can start busting my ass and making it happen!

Also: coffee grinds. I can't stand the texture of wet coffee grinds. I can handle sand, but I get completely paralyzed by the thought of touching coffee grinds. UGH!

Awwwww, you're too sweet! Thanks for thinking of me. :)

Good for you for going back to school and I definitely think you should pursue becoming a nutritionist, especially with the growing obesity problem in this country. Having someone who has "been there, done that" can make all the difference in the world.

Thank you, sweetie.

Okay, I read your daily intake and what you are eating looks pretty good to me. Perhaps a bit carb heavy/protein light but good, calorie wise. You might feel full longer and more satisfied with more protein. I usually do. :D
