There's a new meme floating around the internet so I thought I'd join in on the fun. Here goes nothing!
A. Age: 32
B. Bed size: King
C. Chore that you hate: Cleaning toilets--and I'm not talking about a cursory brush around the bowl, I'm talking deep-cleaning, on your hands-and-knees, scrubbing everything. Blech.
D. Dogs: I like dogs, especially ones that belong to other people. Cats are where it's at as far as I'm concerned (at least until Captain Husband retires and can take care of a dog all by himself.)
E. Essential start to your day: Caffeine. Loads of it.
F. Favorite color: Turquoise/teal
G. Gold or Silver: Silver
H. Height:5'10 1/2" (yes, the 1/2" makes all the difference)
I. Instruments you play: Trombone, although it's been years. I also taught myself to play the piano way back when but all I can manage now is some chopsticks and heart and soul.
J. Job title: Historian, wife, mother and sometimes photographer.
K. Kids: One human baby, Sammy, and one fur baby, Sandy Cat.
L. Live: The west Texas town of El Paso
M. Mother’s name: Carolyn
N. Nicknames: Lulu, Lulubell
O. Overnight hospital stays: See one human baby, Sammy
P. Pet peeves: When Captain Husband doesn't replace the empty toilet paper roll and/or hangs it the "wrong" way.
Q. Quote from a movie: "60% of the time, it works every time."
R. Right or left handed: Right, but sometimes I forget and try to write/eat with my left and wind up confusing myself.
S. Siblings: Two younger brothers (here and here), both of whom need to blog more often. Hint, hint.
T. Time you wake up: My one human baby also functions as an alarm clock; he usually goes off between 8 am and 9 am, so I can't really complain.
U. Underwear: Most definitely.
V. Vegetable you hate: Cooked beets...the texture...ugh.
W. What makes you run late: These days it's a toss-up between the husband and the kid.
X. X-Rays you’ve had: Full-body scan, hands, feet, teeth, arm, shins...I don't think I got an x-ray when I broke my nose, but I honestly can't remember. (I may be a little bit accident prone.)
Y. Yummy food that you make: I generally prefer baking to cooking, but I got rave reviews from CH and Sammy when I made this crockpot barbecue chicken.
Z. Zoo animal: Lions and tigers and [sloth] bears, oh my!
