Just because I vowed to post every day, and my day filled with laundry, cleaning, and packing isn't going to garner any cute pictures....
A. Age: 43 (For a short time last week, I thought I was still 42. I think I may be showing my age!)
B. Bed size: Queen. We had a king size on our honeymoon, and we ended up on the opposite sides of the bed every morning, so maybe a queen is a good idea, though, when Hannah ends up in our bed, a king would be nice!
C. Chore you hate: Laundry, dishes, floors, bathrooms...maybe it should be a chore I like?
D. Dogs: Four! (and why I thought this was a good idea....I'll never know!)
E. Essential start to your day: coffee or diet coke
F. Favorite color: purple, turquoise, orange, hot pink
G. Gold or silver: Silver
H. Height: 5'9"
I. Instruments: "Played" the clarinet in sixth grade, piano, and the keyboard part of the organ
J. Job title: first grade teacher
K. Kids: Five! Josh (19), Sarah (16), Madeline (14), Hannah (almost 5), Charlotte (1.5)
L. Live: in Lake City...the city with no lakes, but on a street named after one of the "great" ones!
M. Mom’s name: Nora, but she goes by Noni
N. Nicknames: My mom calls me bits. In college, my nickname at work was Wheels, because the guys I worked with thought I had great legs. Those were the days....
O. Overnight hospital stays: knee surgery when I was 16, all five kiddos, and then an overnight stay when pregnant with Hannah for pre-term labor. Stayed overnight in the hospital with Josh twice and Sarah once when they were little and had pneumonia
P. Pet peeve: many--I find myself easily annoyed lately. But the big ones are loud chewers (lifetime annoyance there...just ask my brother!); people who don't spell, punctuate, or capitalize correctly; people reading over my shoulder
Q. Quote from a movie: How sad is it that I can't think of one except from Barbie and the Twelve Dancing Princesses?
R. Right or left handed: Right
S. Siblings: one younger sister, one younger brother
T. Time you wake up: Routinely at 4:00-4:15. am. then I go back to sleep until the alarm clock goes off or Charlotte does
U. Underwear: Yes, please. TMI: realized yesterday I have not bought new underwear of any kind since I've been married. How sad is that?
V. Vegetables you dislike: sweet peas, cooked carrots, any kind of greens
W. What makes you run late: I am usually anally on time or early. If I am late it is because Hannah throws a fit and wants something before we leave...or I can't find anything to wear.
X. X-Rays you’ve had: knees, sinuses, lungs, back, foot
Y, Yummy food you make: ???? I make a mean pot of chili, though only Daryl and I will eat it
Z. Zoo- favorite animal: otters...too cute!
