A Little Something About Me

I would still love your input on yesterday's post, but in the meantime I thought I'd steal borrow this fun little quiz from my sweet and lovely friend, the Flip-Flop Farmgirl!  :)

Age:  I'm not afraid to say it - 41 people, 41.

Bed size:  That would be a California King 'cause I have a hubs who is 6'6"!

Chore you hate:  Yes.  BAhaha - if you call it chore, then I do NOT like it.  Let's call it Display of Maintenance Skillz that I most dislike.  That would be the toilet and the dishes (and cleaning up after the dog, but I don't do that - that's what sons are for.)  :)

DogsWe have a Basset hound named Buster - he's a funny dog and everybody likes him!

Essential start of your day:  Getting everything ready for hubs and son to go to work and school, coffee, breakfast, reading (devotion, 2 chapters Bible, a few pages of my book for the month).  Then I can begin the day!  Well by that time the day is well begun, but that's OK. 

Favorite colorRed!

Gold or silver:  Silver

Height:  5'5" if you round up...oh and shrinking.  Ugh.

Instruments I play (or have played):  Piano, though not that well. Way back in the day I played the clarinet and the saxophone.

Job Title:  Imperfect Homemaker

Kids:  1 very special, amusing son! Um, and tall.

Live:  California

Mom's name:  Judy (she passed away almost 10 years ago)

Nickname:  My cousins used to call me "Lee" and hubs calls me "honey" and a variety of other little names.  In fact, when he actually uses my first name it startles me - LOL!

Pet peeve:  How much time do we have?  Bad customer service is my top one and people not using turn signals.  And while other people are annoyed by people that are late, I cringe when people show up early - LOL ('cause I run late...sigh).

Quote from a movieI know you expect a pretty quote from Pride & Prejudice or something but no, you'll have to put up with a little Napoleon Dynamite (a movie that people either love or hate).  Hubs and I share a goofy sense of humor and love to share silly quotes.  Here's one I like when Napolean is talking to Deb in the school cafeteria:

"I see you're drinking 1%.  Is that 'cause you think you're fat?  'Cause you're not.  You could be drinking whole if you wanted to." 

I'm sorry, but it makes me laugh people!
Right or left-handed:  Right

Siblings:  Two younger sisters

Time you wake up:  6:45am on weekdays, as late as I can get away with on weekends

Underwear:  What is this about?  I fully support the wearing of underwear!  :)

Vegetables you dislike:   Oh dear - embarassing: broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, mushrooms, olives, okra, avocado and many more.  I eat some of them mixed into things or prepared certain ways.  If I am at your house and you serve any of these, I will take a scoop and eat it without you ever knowing of my dislike!  I'm that good.  :)

What makes you run late:  My poor judgment of how much time I really need and then when I actually do give myself extra time, Murphy's Law kicks in and I won't be able to find my keys or the dog won't get into his kennel or I'll get a phone call. 

X-rays you've had done:  Dental, lungs, arm, and a few more I'm sure.

Yummy food you make:  Excuse me, but everything I make is yummy - HA!  Right now with the warm weather I'm craving some yummy Tortellini-Chicken Salad.  To go with my coffee, I could handle some Double-Chocolate Walnut Biscotti or Coffee Blondies With a Shot of Chocolate.  And for extreme chocolate cravings, I gotta go with Mix-in-the-Pan Chocolate Cake.  There's just too many things to list!  (You can check out the recipe index if you want or the healthier recipes on the sidebar at my other blog.) 

Zoo animal:  Tiger - so pretty! 

Need some blogging inspiration today?  Wanna join in?  Let me know if you do so I can come and read!

Have a wonderful day friends!


  1. I loved reading this! :) I think Stormie would get Buster up and running, hee hee. :)
    We have so much in common...everything I make is yummy too! LOLOL :) hee hee...
    Ok, I'm in need of blogging inspiration too...soooo I'll copy. ;)

  2. Oh! And Napolean...oh yeah! Love it!

  3. I'm happy to say that I knew almost everything about you. Minus the x-rays and the favorite animal at the zoo. LOL! Oh and your Mom's name. OH and that you fully support the wearing of underwear.
    Okay well maybe I didn't do so well. But I did know your favorite color was red. Ha!

    Big I'm trying to think back if I served broccoli while you were here size hugs to you!
    Love ya my friend.

  4. That was so fun to read and learn more about you. Between you and Kathy I know feel like a horrible wife because I do not get up with my husband and make him lunch. If I do I'm sure my kids would all wake up and why would I want them up that early???

    We have a double bed. I wish we had a queen but the move before this one we could only fit a double up the stairs and we never replaced it when we moved again. My husband is a bed hog.
