I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread. Ps. 37:25

breaking back in –   Leave a comment

So out of this habit it’s ridiculous.  So guess I’ll just start with a small post.  I never finished the Christmas newsletter picture section – but will just start over with that next Christmas season! I’m still working many many hours for our sweet Chris, and we have discovered new parks to walk in, which […]

Transfers and Changes!   1 comment

  After a very busy, enjoyable summer, we are headed into a fall of changes yet excitement! First, Chris had a very nice summer camp, along with Ryan, part of the time, where the boys got to swim, go to the mall, the movies, play at the park, and just generally get a lot of […]

Goodbye for now, Kent State!   Leave a comment

A few months ago I decided after some researching to apply at Western Governor’s University (more about that here http://www.criscollrj.com/2013/05/17/migraine-aura-lethargyexhaustionrelaxing-blog-time/).  This saves me time and money, as the courses are less expensive and everything is online.  However, before I had made that decision I had applied for scholarships at Kent, and I was awarded the […]

Migraine aura lethargy/exhaustion=relaxing blog time   1 comment

Had my post-stress migraine today but luckily not a huge headache with it – just a bit of achy eyes and exhaustion.  So seemed a good time for a well-overdue blog post!  I am too whipped to do anything else. My last posts were mostly about weight, so my quick update about that is that […]

New classes and new food plan!   Leave a comment

Since I like to pile it on all at once I’m tackling just that! First, the classes.  I love many things about them and also don’t like some things about them.  But all are necessary and I will be challenged and will grow stronger and hopefully wiser with all the information I’m learning! Characteristics of […]

Teaching Enjoyment   2 comments

Ahh, so many ways to look at that. I thought of that title the other day while trying to help Chris with some things. And as my mind will play with words I realized there were two ways to look at that. The first way is how when trying to plan events with Chris, I […]

Minor changes or major changes?   2 comments

Yep, that was the question. At the beginning of speech class called applied phonetics, our teacher sat in front of us and shared that of the 100 people in the class, only 15 would make it into the master’s program. She advised to have another option in mind. I thought about that for a week […]

Senior year for 3 of us!!   Leave a comment

Wow, somehow I did it.  Due to my just plowing into things at times, I got myself into a situation where I was doing schoolwork every waking hour almost.  Taking seven credit hours (2 5-week classes, 1 8-week class) sounded like a great idea in the spring.  Only seven credit hours, should be easy!  I […]
