The ABCs of Me

You've read the saga of how I passed the latter part of last week. What I haven't told you is that I did get better... and then it all went pear-shaped Monday morning. My cold morphed into a sinus infection and while Bubba was still fighting off the last of his ear infection, my sinus cavity was attempting an emergency egress from my face.

So, I have here a meme that made the rounds a few months ago. A meme I was saving for a sick day. Enjoy!

Accent - I've been told I have a slight Southern accent, after 14 years of living in Georgia. Before that, I didn't really have an accent. Most West Virginians don't have accents. Just bad grammar.

Breakfast - Half-bowl of Quaker oat squares, milk, whatever banana is left over from the kids' breakfast, and a large mug of coffee.

Chore I Don't Care For - Laundry.

Dog or Cat - 2 cats

Essential Electronics - My MacBook Pro and iPhone. I would die if I didn't have them. OK. Maybe I wouldn't die, but I would cry. A lot.

Favorite Perfume - None. Not a big perfume wearer.

Gold or Silver - Yellow Gold

Handbag - Coach

Insomnia - I actually sleep well. Unless the kids are on a sleep strike. Then? I'm a bitch.

Job Title - Wife, mother, jungle gym, psychiatrist, doctor, nurse, pharmacist, mediator, dietitian, clinically insane...

Kids - 3

Living Arrangements - Married with kids in a home we own.

Most Admirable Trait - I'm loyal to a fault.

Naughtiest Childhood Behavior - Reading. All the time. In class. I got into trouble for it quite a lot.

Overnight Hospital Stays - 4

Phobias - Fear of large crowds and large structures. Cruise ships? Freak me the hell out.

Quote - "Imagination is more important than knowledge." - Albert Einstein

Reason to smile - "I love yous" or hugs from my children.

Siblings - Nope. Just little old me.

Time I wake up - Physically, 7 A.M. Mentally, noon.

Unusual Talent or Skill - I can wiggle my ears. Shut up!

Vegetable I Refuse to Eat - brussels sprouts and beets

Worst Habit - Procrastination

X-Rays - Ribs

Yummy Stuff - Dark Chocolate! Cherry Pie!

Zoo Animal I Like Most - Red Panda

I can wiggle my ears, too!

Worst Habit - Procrastination

That's always been a problem for me to but for some odd reason the older I get the less I Procrastinate, weird huh!

Expat No. 3699 said...

Ditto on the vegetables, except I would add lima beans, yuck!

Hope you and your family have a great Turkey Day!

Coal Miner's Granddaughter said...

Avitable - Birds of a feather, baby!

Trukindog - Could be the age thing. The older one gets, the less one wants to wait around to get it done to move onto the next thing?

Giggle Pixie - That's what I said!

Employee No. 3699 - You, too, hon!

Not Afraid to Use It said...

What a cool list! It's always fun to learn new things about one of my fav bloggers.

I grabbed your meme.

NATUI - It is a fun list. Memes are awesome for those sick days when you just don't have the energy to be original!

Vulgar Wizard - Grab away, baby!
