Idea for post stolen from Two Adults, One Brown Baby. Fun idea!
A to Z
A. Age: 32 (for a few more weeks)
B. Bed size: California King. For our first real bed purchase from a real mattress store, we decided to go big or go home. All beds seem so small now.
C. Chore that you hate: Taking out the trash. And cleaning the kitty box. And cleaning the toilet. Basically anything that has me fighting my gag reflex.
D. Dogs: Our sweet beagle Newton who now lives with Grandma and Grandpa in Wisconsin because Brien and Bowie were too allergic. Miss you, love bug!
E. Essential start to your day: Tea. I literally don’t do anything in the morning until I have that first cup of Earl Grey in my hand.
F. Favorite color: Tiffany blue.
G. Gold or silver: Silver
H. Height: 5’4″
I. Instruments that you play: Piano. Haven’t really sat down to play in a long time though, unfortunately. Also, started the mandolin a while back, and then, well, motherhood.
J. Job title: Officially: Stay at Home Mom. Once upon a time, I was Editor. But, I got laid off. Still a Writer on occasion. Working on some other stuff too. Stay tuned.
K. Kids: The Bow-man. 3 and 3/4 years old (omg).
L. Live: San Francisco
M. Mother’s name: Shelly (and she’s a Very Bloggy reader. Watch for her comments!)
N. Nicknames: Wethie. It’s a long story.
O. Overnight hospital stays: Just when Bowie was born. Though, I SHOULD have been in the hospital after 8 days of battling salmonella at home, but they thought I had the flu.
P. Pet peeves: Not using turning signals. Fishing for compliments. Bad grammar.
Q. Quote from a movie: Funny, but so true. Sums up my life view pretty well: “Life is full of misery, loneliness, and suffering – and it’s all over much too soon.” –Woody Allen (Annie Hall)
R: Right or left handed: Right
S: Siblings: Three younger brothers, two older stepbrothers.
T. There wasn’t anything for T. I’m going with Tequila? Yes, please.
U. Underwear: Heather grey. Like the rest of my wardrobe.
V. Vegetable(s) you hate: Onions. Cooked greens (I love greens, but hate when they get soggy).
W. What makes you run late: When Bowie refuses to get shoes on / get clothes on / get into the car.
X. X-rays you’ve had: My hand, when I was a wee one. A window came smashing down on it. But it was not broken. Also, lots of feet X-rays, I have crazy messed-up feet, both have been operated on. My arthritic knee. My wrist, which ended up just having tendonitis. And, dental X-rays. Does an ultrasound count? Had a few of those.
Y. Yummy food that you make: Chicken Apple Basil Salad. A recipe I took from Real Simple and changed to suit my tastes. It’s a crowd pleaser.
Z. Zoo animal: Elephants, they’re my favorite. I also like the big cats and the giraffes. And I could sit and watch meerkats all day. I really love the zoo. And we recently got a membership, I’m super excited about that.
