I was skimming through blogs at work (they have put me in the office today with little to do aside from giving teachers bathroom breaks and answering the phone), and I came across this little ABC of me thing. ...figured I'd fill it out. :)
A. Age: 29
B. Bed size: Full
C. Chore you hate: Hmm...Folding fitted sheets. For this reason, I only own one set of sheets. I wash them and put them right back on the bed.
D. Dogs: Scared of them. As a child I was terrified of them. I'd scream and hide behind my parents. Now I try to deal. Sometimes I do better than others...depends on the dog.
E. Essential start to your day: D usually calls me after he drops the boys off at school when he's driving to work. It makes it soooo much easier to get myself out of bed. :)
F. Favorite color: Various shades of teals, aquas, or blue/greens
G. Gold or silver: I like both. I'm not going to pick.
H. Height: 5'6"
I. Instruments: My degree is in voice. I took about a thousand years of piano lessons, but I'm pretty awful at it.
J. Job title: Childcare Professional
K. Kids: Of my own...none. I'm pretty in love with D's boys though, and I think we all know that I'm the world's greatest Auntie. ;) Oh yeah, and there are all those
L. Live: Yes, I live. Specifically, Florida. More Specifically, Southwest Florida. Even more specifically, at my house. ;)
M. Mom’s name: Valerie
N. Nicknames: Jenn calls me Chad. I don't really have any other nicknames.
O. Overnight hospital stays: Other than directly after being born, none so far.
P. Pet peeve: People not being respectful of other people's time...showing up late, not being where you say you will be when you say you will be there, etc...
Q. Quote from a movie:“For what do we live, but to make sport for our neighbours, and laugh at them in our turn?”—Mr. Bennet, Pride and Prejudice (Actually, I believe in the movie he said, "What do we live for..." this is the book quote, but the point is the same.)
For good measure, I'm throwing in a TV show quote that I love."There’s a lot of things you need to get across this universe: Warp drive, wormhole refractors. You know the thing you need most of all? You need a hand to hold."- 10th Doctor, Doctor Who
R. Right or left handed: Right
S. Siblings: One younger sister and an older brother-in-law.
T. Time you wake up: Usually around 8-8:30
U. Underwear: Confession: I own approximately 40 pairs of underwear from Victoria's Secret. It's kind of absurd, really.
V. Vegetables you dislike: This list keeps getting shorter!! I am still having some trouble stomaching summer squash and zucchini. I am learning to tolerate them though. There are still several veggies that I haven't worked up the nerve to really try.
W. What makes you run late: Being dependent upon other people. It is very, very rare that I'm late on my own.
X. X-Rays you’ve had: Teeth are all I can think of right now.
Y: Yummy food you make: Everything I make is yummy. ;)
Z. Zoo: I LOVE ZOO! (inside joke) See previous post for zoo memories. Also, this past year D and I and the boys had a pass to the Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa, so I have lots of nice Zoo memories. My favorite Zoo animal is the giraffe.
