My ABC's

I found out just a few days ago that one of my bloggy friends, Carrie, lives only a half hour or so away from my brother. How lucky am I?! We’ve already decided that the next time I make a big visit to see him, we will be having a major lunch date together.

While visiting Carrie’s blog last week, I noticed that she had a really cool “My ABC’s” meme that she had filled out. I decided to be a copycat and use it for my blog as well.

Here we go with “My ABC’s”…

A – Age: In my dreams, I am “Forever 29.” In real life, I am 35 and 3/4. In June I am going to officially be much closer to 40 than to 30. I am not really very happy about that.

B – Bed Size: Queen. I long for a King-size bed. The hubs says I always hog his side of the bed (he’s a liar of course!)

C – Chore You Hate: COOKING. I’d honestly rather clean toilets than cook.

D – Dad’s Name: Jerold

E – Essential Start Your Day Item: Diet Coke (Since “The Kidney Stone of 2008” though I don’t let myself have them as much anymore which really stinks.)

F – Favorite TV Show: The Office (American version.) Any other The Office fans out there?? I own almost every season on DVD and could watch old episodes every night.

G – Gold or Silver: Silver – the non-shiny silver. I really love a copper look most right now though.

H – Height: 5’2″…if I’m lucky. Sweatiepy is 6’2″ so we make quite a pair.

I – Instruments You Play(ed): Piano. Love it…it’s been a passion of mine since I first started taking lessons. If I had to make a choice, I’d probably give up my camera before I’d give up playing the piano (you can imagine just how tough that choice would be for me.)

My dad made me learn how to play an accordian when I was younger (embarrassing!)

J – Job Title: My first prioirities are being a mom and wife; I enjoy being a SU Demo (just a hobby demo now); I am working overtime with Amy now trying to make I Faces as awesome as it can possibly be

K – Kid(s): The “4 W’s” and sometimes an additional one named Sweatiepy

L – Living Arrangement: Smallish, fixer-upper home located on almost 12 acres in Amish Country, Ohio; I love my life in the middle-of-nowhere

M – Mom’s Name: Karen.

Interesting note: My Grandma’s name was June. My mom’s name is Karen June (she was the 2nd daughter.) My name is Angela June (I was the 2nd daughter.) My second daughter was supposed to have the middle name of June too but someone has decided that we are done having children and completely ruined that tradition for me.

Not that I’m bitter or anything.

N – Nicknames: My real name is Angela so….Angie, Ang (to close friends and family), Mommy, Mom, Mamasita (thanks to the hubs for starting that one), Woman (when he wants to die), Dimpled Darling (the childhood nickname my dad called me)

O – Overnight Hospital Stays Other Than Birth: Nada. I am so thankful for that!

P – Pet Peeve: Word Verification. (I apologize to all of you who use it…but I hate it!)

Q – Quotes You Like: Be A Blessing! My mom said this to me and my siblings every single time we left the house when we were young. I say it to my kids now just to drive them crazy.

R – Right or Left-Handed: Right.

S – Siblings: Two sisters and two brothers. Other than hubby they are my best friends in the world!

T – Time You Wake Up: 7:30 a.m. but only because I have to. I am not a morning person at all and would sleep until 9:00 a.m. every day if I could.

U – Ultimate Dessert: I’m more of a “steak & potatoes” type of gal, but I’d have a hard time saying no to any dessert that had chocolate and peanut butter in it.

V – Vegetable You Dislike: Tomatoes. Hate, hate, hate, hate, hate them.

W – Ways You Run Late: I don’t like to be late. Weston is late everyday to preschool though because I have to drop the other kids off at their school first (and both schools start at the same exact time.) I hate that he’s late, but there is really nothing I can do about it.

X – X-rays You’ve Had: My teeth (does that count?) Other than that, I don’t think any. I had a CAT scan when I was passing “The Kidney Stone” and no one knew what was wrong with me yet.

Y – Yummy Food You Make: Angie = The Worst Cook In The World. Sweatiepy loves it when I make chocolate chip cookies though.

Z – Zoo Animal: They are all pretty cool, aren’t they? Lions, Elephants, Polar Bears, Camels, Monkeys…I like them all. Except snakes. I have a huge phobia concerning snakes.

So, do I have anything in common with you?
