It has been a rather long week around here first with everyone home for the holiday on Monday followed by J staying home sick from school on Tuesday. Yesterday was the first day that felt “normal” all week and I had a PTA event last night. My own family didn’t go but I had to be there as I had committed to volunteer. I looked around my home today and realized that somehow during the course of the week I apparently missed a party. There sure is a mess left over! So, I’m spending today doing my fast 15 minutes in each room. I was taking a break and reading a few blogs and noticed that Hannah over at Supermommy!…or Not! posted an A to Z of Me link up. Seemed like a fun thing to do on my breaks from cleaning up around here.
Age: 34. Oops, reverse those numbers for the correct answer. That strategy won’t work for me next year!
Bed size: Queen
Chore you hate: I have to pick just one? Could I just say housework and call it complete? My least favorite thing is cleaning up the kitchen.
Dogs: Actually, I’m a cat person although I’m realizing that perhaps I’m not a 3 cat person. Too late though as we have 3 of them running around here. Okay, to be fair, we have 3 of them sleeping around here. One is snoozing in on our bed, one is in recliner, and one is on the sofa. I wonder if maybe the cats had the party I missed.
Essential to start your day: COFFEE! I don’t care what brand although we usually buy Folgers. I do need to have milk or some sort of cream in my coffee though or it is just not the same.
Favorite color: Green, the color of springtime!
Gold or Silver: Gold although a better question for me would have been pearls or diamonds and then, I would have answered both!
Height: 5′ 3″ If W the question turns out to be weight, I’m not gonna answer!
Instruments you play: None. I have no musical talent.
Job title: Paid? None. UnPaid: Mom, Wife, Secretary, Cook, Maid, chauffeur, Politician (PTA , Travel Agent, Tutor, Party-Planner, and I’m stopping there because I don’t have time to list them all.
Kids: I don’t mind them. Two boys live here with us, ages 8 & 11. I steal their leftover candy while they are at school sometimes.
Live: Well, yes I am alive and living in a relatively large metro area in the Midwest. I’d love to live in a more urban location and my husband would love to live in a more rural location so we have agreed to stay miserable in the suburbs. Actually, I’m not really miserable here. I don’t think he is either.
Married: It will be 15 years this August.
Nicknames: Family can get away with calling me “Jeanie” and of course, I’ve been called hygiene (Hi, Jean). I could probably bore you all with lots of words on the “joys” of having a name that rhymes with many words but I won’t.
Overnight Hospital Stays: Twice. One stay per child.
Pet Peeve: Poor customer service. I will leave the store.
Quote: Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not into thine own understanding.
Righty or Lefty: I’m a left-handed genius. Well, I am left-handed.
Siblings: 1 older sister and 3 older brothers.
Time you wake up: Alarm goes off at 6a.m this school year. Note: Question did not ask what time I actually get out of bed so I will not discuss my snooze button habits.
University Attended: I graduated from the University of Missouri at Kansas City with a Bachelor’s degree in psychology and minor in economics.
Veggies you dislike: cauliflower tops the list but I’m sure there are more on it.
What makes you run late: Not allowing enough time as well as being easily distracted.
X-Rays you’ve had: Zero.
Yum food: Doesn’t that kind of say it all? Yum! Food! I would probably pick the chips and dips over the chocolate cake though. Of course, I’d probably go back later for the chocolate cake.
Zoo favorite animal: Tigers
