E...F...G...H... Yikes how I feel after falling behind in my A to Z posting!

I am...


Grateful &...


I can not believe that I missed 3 (oops...4) letters of the alphabet, but I am back. And I have chosen 4 words to look at in this one post.

Extremly is an adverb, so let's go with it's root word: Extreme which is both an adjective & a noun with 15 different no... varying (that's probably a better word choice) definitions. Only 2 of which use some form of the word itself. I'm impressed!
For today's post I'm going to choose this one as my definition of choice:
     adjective: exceeding the bounds of moderation:
All 15 would take up way to much space & is quite extreme if you ask me. If you'd like to see more (some of them were quite...interesting. One was even archaic!) just check out this link to's definitions!

1. apt to forget; that forgets
That one's out...not a proper definition. (how I have managed to get myself stuck on this "proper" definition kick...I really don't know. But it's giving me ideas on how to start my posts, so I think for now I shall stick with it!)
2. heedless or neglectful (often followed by of)
3. bringing on oblivion

For the sake of this week's feelings, let's go with definition #2...heedless or neglectful. Oh how that makes me sad! However, it is quite accurate when you look at a post that is intended to be one letter a week & this week the writer feels the need to make up for the 3 (rather 4) missed weeks plus the current one because she was neglectful more than just forgetful.

1. warmly or deeply appreciative of kindness or benefits received;thankful
2. expressing or actuated by gratitude
(It’s not the exact word, but it is a form of the word & my English teacher would never let that fly on a vocab test)
3. pleasing to the mind or senses; agreeable or welcome; refreshing

Warmly or deeply appreciative of kindness...that I am! For each one of you despite my neglectfulness is still here reading my silly little narrative.

1. delighted, pleased, or glad, as over a particular thing:
2. characterized by or indicative of pleasure, contentment, or joy:
3. favored by fortune; fortunate or lucky:
4. apt or felicitous, as actions, utterances, or ideas.
5. obsessed by or quick to use the item indicated (usually used incombination):

(this one requires an example: if it wasn't for this gadget-happy world, I wouldn't be blogging. :) )

So today's post finds me feeling like I am:
exceeding the bounds of moderation in: neglectfulness, deep appreciation of kindness and delight over a particular thing (that thing being our gadget-happy world that is conducive to sharing our silly thoughts with the world at large!) That's some extreme emotions right there

Oh and get this: Half of the words this week (which is technically 4-make that 5-weeks worth of posts in one...but I am trying desperately to make sure it isn't 4 posts long!) were English teacher proper! Not too shabby for a week full of adjectives!

Have a extra-fabulous greatly-humble week...oooooo...4 more adjectives. Okay..I will stop now :)

Wow! You packed quite a bit in your post. It's nice
to read what you have to say on the A to Z Meme
again. :) I am extremely grateful and happy that
I only missed one letter so far--h. Though I mustn't
be forgetful of j this coming week. And I was forgetful
about posting the meme symbol. Glad we often get
second, third and . . . even more chances in this life.

Thanks so much :) It was fun to be creative with so much (yet try to keep it on the short side). I hope this is the only one I forget!!! I'm a bit worried I may forget again over Christmas-New Year's but I will just trust that if I do, God will give me something to share.

As for second chances: oh my goodness! I could not imagine living life without those 2nd, 3rd & 4th chances that He gives us!

Have a blessed day!
