ABC about me!

I stole this one from Jamie who stole it from Shawna.

A – An advantage you have – I'm pretty visual. It's the art thing.
B – Blue or brown eyes – Hubs has dark blue eyes. I have dark brown eyes and K- falls in to the non-alphabet category of green.
C – Chore you hate – Scrubbing the bathroom.
D – Dad’s name – Leonard
E – Essential start of your day – Eating!
F – Favorite color – Periwinkle and lavender
G – Greatest thing you’ve ever done that made you feel really good – Becoming a wife and a mommy.
H – Habit you have – Making the bed as soon as I get out of it. I can't have the bed unmade.
I – Issue you hate that the world tries to make you pursue – Legalizing casinos in an already economically depressed state.
J – Job title – Mom, wife, daughter, sister, daughter-in-law, artist, gallery rep, display staff, baker, cooker, cleaner, jack of all trades . . .
K – Kohls or Target – Target. It is difficult to navigate Kohl's.
L – Living arrangements – Hubs, K-, me, Smudge the miffy wonder cat and her partner in crime, Spike with the funky attitude iguana. (We swear that they talk and make plans to sabotage.)
M – Music you like – Alternative, Elder Metal, 80's, some Folk, Classical and absolutely NO! country. Eeek!
N – Nicknames – Honey, Mommy, Ame, Amers, Meam, Mamie, Am-a
O – Overnight hospital stay – When I was born August, 1973, Hamstring Endo-Button Reconstruction (ACL surgery) March, 1999, The bout with Bailey January, 2003
P – Pet Peeve – (I have to list only one?) Loud cell phone talkers in public. They aren't new, everyone has one, so you aren't as cool as you think you are.
Q – Quote that you like most – "Everytime you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing." Mother Teresa (quotes)
R – Right or left handed – Right handed with left handed tendencies.
S – Siblings – An older sister, LeAnne (AKA Annie). Two younger brothers, Billy (AKA Silly) and Leonard (AKA Dumpy)
T – Time you wake up – 7 - 7:30 AM.
U – Underwear – Bikini, please. No strings. Jockey only. Thank you.
V – Vegetable you dislike – Asparagus. I'm just disappointed in it. Hardly any taste. Yugh.
W – What makes you run late – Losing track of time, kid not ready, Hubs not ready, underestimation of distance. (For the record 98 % of the time we are on time.)
X – X-rays you’ve had – Teeth, lungs (a zillion during the Bailey episode), knee (for the ACL thingy), and thumb (for when I cut through the tendon).
Y – Yummy food you make – I'm not feeling really food creative right now. (I'm in a rut.) I can belt out a good scalloped potato.
Z – Zoo animal – Giraffes. I'm short and generally, they aren't.

Smiles in my day:
- Hubs feels better!
- I get to come back to bed! (We let the sick spouse have the bed.) I have a crink in my neck from sleeping on the couch for two nights. I didn't really sleep, as I kept waking to check on Hubs and if he had a fever. Oh, a sweet night of slumber. I'm so excited.
- The neighbor telling me that what I was spraying on my tree smelled like a good meat marinade.
- It was steady at the gallery today with a few good rushes of people! Hooray! Hooray! Hooray!
- K- made it through the dolly loaning episode and learned a valuable lesson in overnight sharing.
