This is me. I was born Elizabeth Merry Hartman on August 5, 1969. (Yes, I just got busted sneaking a peak at a Christmas present.)
I was born in Ohio and moved to West Virginia when I was less than two weeks old. My uncle (funny, funny guy) made the observation that it was a shame to turn a Buckeye into a Grit.
Hence the childhood nickname...Grit...a name that has spawned more questions than the White House Press Corps.
*there was no home delivery back in the day
Happily, happily...I went off to college at Marshall University in Huntington, WV. There I was a resident advisor. The boss warned us, "Get used to living in a fish bowl and be accountable for your every behavior"...I was good to go...I was used to small town, glass house living! I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Counseling and Rehabilitation, went to work at Youth Services System, Inc., moved to New Martinsville and got married to my husband Chad, all in the same week.
He is a senior at WVU. He's a good boy, even if he did choose his parents' rival school to get his degree.
Caleb is set to graduate high honors this spring with a BS in psychology and plans to head to law school.
He seems to be a champ at beer pong, but he still texts his mom "good night" and keeps his grades in the A range, so he's a good boy.
Cole is also a smart kid. He is a sophomore in college, also at WVU! Seriously? Not a single Herd fan in the group?
Cole is an economics major with a creative spirit. He's a talented writer and funny, funny guy. I'm counting on him to give his mom a shout out when his screen play wins an Academy Award.
He's a senior in high school. Oh my goodness, where does the time go?!
He is an honor student, and a sweet heart.
He also plays football, and I must say, he's pretty good at it.
I'm posting his first (and hopefully ONLY) nude picture on the internet! (you're welcome ladies!)
But nobody else can tease him.
When he was a baby, his big brothers got mad if he was even put in a time out. He's the baby, and they love him.
That's pretty much it.
I have boys, books, and a dirty house.
It's all good.
