ABC's of Me

Saw this on Raven's blog--Stuperhero Extraordinaire, she got it from Living a Goddess Life who got it from somewhere else.  OK, so here goes:
*Age~ 37.  38 on August 22.  I'm far closer to 40 that I ever imagined.  I also don't feel at all that old.

*Bed~ King. Spring Air that I got for a good deal when I was selling furniture.  The day after it was delivered and paid for, they fired me.  I'm not pushy enough to sell furniture.

*Chore you hate~ It's a toss up between dishes and laundry, because they are never ending.

*Dogs~ We have one right now.  Guiness is a collie/lab mutt.  He's ten and has arthritis in his hips, but still tries to heard us all together all the time.

*Essential to start your day~ My quiet time in the morning after I'm up and dressed--I get about 15-20 minutes to read, surf the net, or just stare at the wall if I want to without small people demanding my undivided attention.

*Favorite color~Green.

*Gold or Silver~ Silver mostly, but I do like gold too.

*Height~ 5'7. I thought I was 5'6 1/2" until my physical this last year when the nurse told me I was 5'7".  I'm not going to argue with her.

*Instrument~ I attempted to play the trumpet in 5th grade.  Not my first pick--all the cool girls played the clarinet.  Didn't stick with it at all.

*Job Title~ Mother/wife/friend/geologist--the last one is the one I get paid for.

*Kids~I have 2 boys--Turbo, almost eight; and Bruiser just two, yes I am outnumbered in my own home, thus the name of my blog.

*Live~ In Laramie, Wyoming.  We are one of the few towns in our state to have more than 20,000 people in our town--hey we only have two towns with more than 50,000 people in them in the whole state.

*Mom's name~ Mary

*Nickname~ Boober, Mom.

*Overnight hospital stays~2 for childbirth, one for kidney stone removal--which resulted in 8 additional days in the hospital for what for most people is an out patient procedure.  Fun times.

*Pet Peeve~The biggest one is slow drivers.  Going slower than the speed limit is not safer--you are a hazard to those of us who follow the rules.

*Quote from a movie~ "Back off man, I'm a scientist!"  Ghostbusters.

*Righty or lefty~ Righty.

*Siblings~ One younger brother.

*Time you wake up~ right around 6:00am.  I am physically awake, but the mental part of the equation does not usually catch up til about 8:00am.

*Underwear~ Bikini, the occasional thong--depending on what I'm wearing and for whom.

*Vegetable you don't like~ Onions.  Raw ones.  I can about stand green ones, but the rest--ewww.

*What makes you run late~ Dawdling little boys.  It's amazing how much time it can take to find a pair of shoes.

*X-rays~I have had many x-rays, after the great kidney stone adventure of 2007, I have had several abdominal x-rays and a few chest x-rays thrown in for good measure.  It's never a good thing when your doctor looks at your x-ray and says,"Hmmm, we don't usually see that."

*Yummy food you make~Clam chowder, chicken cordon blue, lasagna, sausage and peppers, pork chops, ribs, the list could go on--I do pretty good in the kitchen anymore.

*Zoo animal~ The tigers, lions, bobcats, cheetahs, any of the cats. What can I say, I like cats--big and small.

Sweet! I'm so glad you did it! I totally forgot about childbirth when I listed my hospital stays. Oops.

Yay for late August birthdays! :D

I love that your dog's name is Guinness. And that your quote is from Ghostbusters. :)

i totally agree with the wake-up time. It takes me quite a while to feel mentally ready for the day.

This was a fun one! Shoes... they are the devil aren't they! I am not quite sure how each of my girls can have 15 pairs of shoes yet I cannot ever find one matching set.

Good Heavens! What went wrong with your kidney stone removal operation???
My husband is from Wyoming! I think the town his parents live in now has a population sign that claims 100 residents. Bustling metropolis!
I played the clarinet in middle school (for about 3 weeks) any my husband played the trumpet clear through until he graduated high school. It's a proven fact (in my opinion) that trumpet players make the best kissers. Be sure to pass that knowledge on to Nick...:)

Fun to read about you! My husband is one of those slow drivers. I just keep my mouth shut unless there is someone behind us, then I have to say something. I don't want to cause road rage!

And Boober--after the fraggle? :)
