More About Me

A few months ago, I participated in a meme “Know Me Better” from I Am A Reader, Not A Writer. So you probably already know more about me that you ever wanted to know. Just in case I missed something, here’s a post I found on Leeswammes’ Blog. It was actually from December, but I saved it in my inbox and I’m just getting around to doing my own.

Age: 36

Book Size: A book is a book is a book. 🙂 As long as the font is big enough for my tired old eyes…

Chore that you hate: Ironing. Really, it hates me. I can never get all the wrinkles out.

Dogs: I love dogs. I had over 20 growing up. Not because we were obsessed with dogs but because we lived in the country and bad things tend to happen to dogs in the country.

Essential start to your day: I should say exercise, and it does help tremendously, but there have been plenty of days that *haven’t* started with exercise. I don’t drink coffee, so nothing… oh, wait. Snuggles with my baby. *That’s* an essential start to my day.

Favorite colour: It was blue when I was a kid, but now it’s purple.

Gold or Silver: Eh, I’m not big on jewelry. 

Height:  5’5″ (that’s 165 cm for my UK friends)

Instruments you play: Um, does the radio count? Ipod? Computer keyboard? 

Job Title: Stay at home mom, blogger, Pampered Chef Consultant, eBay seller, “home”-schooling chauffer

Kids: Two boys.

Live: Near Atlanta

Milk: Whole

Nicknames: Mommy

Oldest living relative: Not sure exactly. My grandma is 81, but I think she has at least one older sister still living, and I know I have great-uncles on the other side of the family who are older than that.

Pet Peeves: Lying. Many things irritate me, but lying is the one thing that I won’t tolerate.

Quote from a movie: I don’t really have a favorite quote. I can occasionally come up with a suitable quote when the situation arises.

Right or Left handed: Right handed

Siblings: None by birth

Time you wake up: It varies. Especially when I frequently wake up in the middle of the night for 2-3 hours, then go back to sleep.

Underwear: Um, yeah. Who comes up with these questions?

Vegetable you hate: Asparagus

What makes you run late: It’s always either the kids or the computer. It’s *never* me.

X-Rays you’ve had: Knee, wrist, finger, neck, back

Yummy food that you make: Chocolate Cake

Zoo animal: Lions or tigers. I *love* looking at the big cats.
