The ABC's of Me

[Cue music: "Getting to knooow yooouu, getting to know alllll about yooouuu"]

A. Age: Old enough to know better! (oh, oKAY, late thirties)

B. Bed size: king well, B snores!

C. Chore you dislike: putting away laundry.  Seriously. We live out of baskets.

D. Dogs: Yes! Meet Henry, over there to the right.  He doesnt always look irritated with me, honest.

E. Essential start to your day: COFFEE.  And my breakfast of choice these days is toast and one egg.

F. Favorite color: Purple and yellow....but starting to waver towards a mossy green.

G. Gold or silver: Oh, silver.  I'm just not a gold person.

H. Height: 5 feet 4 inches, and shrinking.  Sigh.

I. Instruments you play(ed: I took about six years of piano lessons, so I can still play. 

J. Junk Food:  Either light butter popcorn, or Cheddar Cheese Q.uakes rice cakes.

K. Kids: Two.

L. Live: earthquakes, wildfires, tsunamis, hurricanes, avalanches, or any threat of falling completely off the continent.  And fairly infrequent tornadoes.  Beautiful autumns, tolerable winters, decent springs and summers.  Love my state!

M. Mom’s name: Eleanor

N. Nicknames: Jen....that's all I'll allow! 

O. Overnight hospital stays: Only for having my two kids. 

P. Pet peeves: Repetitive noises: sniffing, hiccupping, knuckle-cracking, gum-snapping, loud chewing, bowl-scraping, crunching on hard foods....I know, I'm strange.  My husband tells me that all the time.

Q. Quote from a movie: "Because I'm older and I have more insurance."  I SO want to use this line, in the same situation as in the movie, someday.

R. Righty or lefty: Righty

S. Siblings: Sister, Brother, Brother, Sister, Brother, Sister, Sister, Brother, Brother, Me.
T. Time you wake up: I get up at 7 on school days, to get the kids off to school. And then some days, once they are off, I take a nap.  Only sometimes.  It's a bad habit, I know.

U. Underwear: Always. 

V. Vegetables you don’t like: Well, there aren't any I can think of, which I absolutely won't eat...I am allergic to onions though.

W. What makes you run late: Sleeping too long.  And Checking my farm on Farmv.ille.  I KNOW, I know, another bad habit.

X. X-rays you’ve had: Hmmm....maybe a chest x-ray, once when I thought I was having a heart attack?  And I think I've had one/both feet x-rayed - potential hammertoes, and plantar fasciitis.

Y. Yummy food you make: I made some hackin' awesome chili just last hands still smell like onions.

Z. Zoo animal favorites: The giraffe.  What is the plural, if I'm watching a group?  "Giraffes"?
Well, I am having fun with this, I'm sorry to come to the end of the alphabet!

My cousin is moving to Ohio in a few weeks. I think the town is Fairborne? I probably butchered the spelling! She is very excited to move there! I personally would not consider moving anywhere unless the winter was totally removed from the equation but they are looking for a fresh start and I hear your winters are better than ours here in Massachusetts.

Very creative... And I have kicked the Farmville habit, sort of. I haven't had time to play (still have my halloween decorations up).
