Bed size: King (and it is heavenly to have space in my bed for me!!)
Chore you dislike: Um, how 'bout all of them? But I think laundry and dusting are my least favorite!
Dogs: Nope (but I'm committed to getting one as soon as we move out of the apartment-- wonder how long we can delay moving into a house?)
Essential start to your day: internet, contact lenses and a hug from That Other Kid
Favorite color: Gray (I know weird) and Red
Gold or silver: white gold, thankyouverymuch
Height: 5'3" (technically 5'2 3/4" but that 1/4 inch makes me feel taller!)
Instruments you play(ed): does the radio, tv, or Ipod count?, although one of my childhood friends did teach me to play chopsticks on the piano when I was 10ish but that doesn't really count, I don't think!
Job title: mom, homeschool teacher, book keeper, and help mate to hubby
Kids: yep, 2 boys - That Kid, 20 (guess I should change that name, huh?) and That Other Kid, 7 (and yes, they are 13 1/2 years apart in age and yes, they both came from the same daddy!)
Live: the suburbs of Dallas, TX
Mom’s name: Virginia
Nicknames: none unless you count mom!
Overnight hospital stays: lots of them; including 2 times for childbirth, broken legs (in traction for my 3rd birthday), tonsilectomy, flu that was treated as if early labor while preggo with That Kid, and numerous trips with That Other Kid while he was an infant/toddler
Pet peeve: doctors that don't treat you with respect, and business people that don't pay their contract people promptly
Quote from a movie: "Houston, we have a problem!" -- anyone know what movie?
Righty or Lefty: Righty, although when I was in the 6th grade I broke my right arm and had to do EVERYTHING with my left so if necessary I can do some basic things with my left hand.
Siblings: 3 younger brothers
Time you wake up: depends on when I get woke up! But generally around 9 am
Vegetables you don’t like: pretty much all of them...I like carrots, green beans, and salad but that's basically it! corn and tomatoes are not really veggies but if you count them we can add those to the short list!
What makes you run late: under-estimating how long it takes to get organized before leaving the house...finding shoes, keys, wallet, phone, etc.
X-Rays you’ve had: lots (see hospital stays)
Yummy food you make: I've been told I bake well, apple pie and banana bread are the favorites. Hubby says I make "the best french toast" (even better than restuarants) with "fat" bacon.
Zoo animal favorite: penguins, and white bengal tigers
Ok...so play along and let me know you did so I can come over and learn more about you!!
