It's the ABCs of me, if you want to play along feel free!
A - Age: 30......again!
B - Bed size: King- love it. I don't like to be touched.
C - Chore you hate: Cleaning the bathroom....didn't you read my post about my PTSD from potty-training (and still having them around) my boys? There is a direct link between wet walls and floors and not pointing things down and aiming!!
D - Dogs' names: Toby. He's a Dalmatian/lab mix...it's a love/hate relationship...way more hate than love.
E - Essential start to your day item: coffee and a quiet moment
F - Favorite color: Purple, but with having 4 boys I seem to own a lot of blue.
G - Gold or Silver: hmmmmm-never thought about it. I actually really like the look of platinum, but I'm a pretty simple girl so that probably goes against the grain. Let's go with silver.
H – Height: I've always said 5'6, but I think that's a lie by an inch or two.
I - Instruments you play: PLAYED is the correct statement. I played the clarinet from 5th grade through HS. Truth is, I wish I still had that instrument. Plus-I consider my voice an instrument- and I can sing.
J - Job title: stay at home mama and wife
K - Kid(s): Tyler-11 1/2, Tyson-7, Taylor-4, Teagan-2
L - Living arrangements: I live with my hubby, 4 kids, one cat, and one dog-I could do without the dog.
M - Mom's name: mom
N – Nicknames: "C"- my hubby calls be that! Sometimes my boys call me "mama-bear"-usually when we are camping. And in high school they called me "stall".
O - Overnight hospital stay other than birth: I don't remember it, but my mom has told me that I stayed in the hospital when I was really little for pneumonia.
P - Pet Peeve: People not putting there things where they go!!!!!As a wife and mama you can see how this particular pet peeve plagues me.
Q - Quote from a movie: "Sanka, ya dead man?"
R - Right or left handed: Right.
S - Siblings: Older sis, younger bro
T - Time you wake up: Hopefully before the kids-at least by a couple minutes- on school days; around 6:30-6:40. On the weekends, if we don't have activities, I lay in bed until the kids climb in with us.
U- Underwear: Of course! I like cheeky's, boy briefs, or hipsters....or anything that is clean in the drawer!
V - Vegetable you dislike: I can't think of one that I particularly dislike--I'm an equal opportunity veggie eater.
W - Ways you run late: kids, kids, kids, kids- getting four in the vehicle with all of their stuff seems to always take me longer than I anticipate.
X - X-rays: 2 in high school (broken finger and thought my ankle was broken). 2 as an adult (again thought ankle was broke and cracked my knuckle in half trying to pete-rose into home plate....really bad idea!)
Y - Yummy food you make: I'm a pretty good cook (toot, toot- that's me tooting my own horn). But family LOVES dessert pizza and dakota biscuit.
Z - Zoo animals: I love the zoo, but we don't have one close to us. Zoo animal I love- monkeys! Reminds me of home!!
