It seemed like a normal day when I entered Mrs. A’s AP Language and Composition class, but little did I know that she was going to assign a very important project that was going to take forever. I took my seat and wrote down what was on the board. Then I sat patiently and waited for Mrs. A to come explain what we were doing today. When the tardy bell rang, Mrs. A glided into the room and gave us all a stack of papers. She then proceeded to discuss our upcoming assignment, a memoir. As she explained the very important assignment, I wondered whom I would write about. No one really came to mind to write about and I thought for sure I would never be able to get this thing done on time. I finally decided that I would write in on my mother, Kari Jenson. I knew I would probably put the project off until the very end and do it the weekend before even though it would get on my mom’s nerves. Putting work off was just how I did everything, it worked for me. When I arrived home from school that day, I told mom about the project. I told her I would most likely write it about her and she was overjoyed.
My mother, Kari Jenson, is one of the most important people in my life. She gave birth to me, helped me learn to walk and so many other things that I find amazing. I cannot begin to fathom how much patience she had to have to deal with me all the time as a child. I’m sure she still has to have patience to deal with me now, but I imagine it was a lot more back then. She has molded me into the person I am today and I wouldn’t want it to be any different. She has always been supportive of everything I have tried from basketball to skateboarding and from football to paintball. Even though there are some things that I do she doesn’t like she usually doesn’t make a big deal of it, but she does discreetly disclose that she doesn’t approve.
My mom is average height and thin. She wears her straight brown hair at shoulder length and hates for it to be in her blue eyes. She usually has a warm expression on her face, but that can change very, very quickly. Her clothes are usually somewhat dressy when she is going to work, but on Friday, she wears jeans and a shirt. She has glasses, but usually prefers to wear here corrective lenses. Her title should be Kari Jenson the Worrisome. No matter what you are doing she will want you to call every five minutes and tell her that you are okay.
If you looked around our house, you would probably find her in the kitchen. The kitchen is one of the places in the house that she got to decorate all by herself. She chose the off-white color for the walls, the fruit border along the top of the walls and even the apple shaped clock. The big sliding glass doors that lead to the backyard are one of her favorite things about the kitchen; she loves to stand and look at the backyard. She spends most of her time in the kitchen cooking, but she also cleans, works, and does probably anything you can imagine in there.
The one thing that...
