McLinky Monday--Getting to Know Me, A to Z


I know I've been slacking in the blogging world lately. I'll let you know why...I'm seriously considering either a). quitting blogging all together or b). taking a hiatus from blogging (I'll explain why when I make the decision). While I continue to roll these thoughts around in my head, I'll go ahead and do a McLinky with the RHOK (even though I don't really like today's topic--I don't really like talking about me on the blog--it's not about me, it's about my world), but I need to post something, so here we go.

A - Age: 39

B - Bed size: Queen

C - Chore you hate: Unloading the dishwasher

D - Dog(s') name: Lucy and Sally

E - Essential start your day item: Hugs from my kiddos

F - Favorite color: Pink

G - Gold or Silver or Platinum: Platinum

H - Height: 5'10"

I - Instruments you play(ed): piano, flute, piccalo, bassoon

J - Job title: Stay-at-home mommy

K - Kid(s): 3--Katie, 6; Patrick, 4; Josie, 2

L - Living arrangements: House with my husband and kids

M - Mom's name: Patricia

N - Nicknames: Mommy, Lyssie (Aunt Lyssie)

O - Overnight hospital stay other than birth: none

P - Pet Peeve: when people throw cigarettes out of their car window--please keep your disgusting habit within your own environment.

Q - Quote from a movie/show: "I find it amusing. Men are supposed to be made out of steel or something. I just sat there. I just held Shelby's hand. There was no noise, no tremble, just peace. Oh god. I realize as a woman how lucky I am. I was there when that wonderful creature drifted into my life and I was there when she drifted out. It was the most precious moment of my life." --M'Lynn from Steel Magnolias (I know it's a depressing quote, but any mother in that situation would probably agree with what she's saying).

R - Right handed or left handed: Right

S - Siblings: One sister, two brothers

T - Time you wake up: Generally between 6:30-7:00.

U- Underwear: Yes, cotton, please.

V - Vegetable you dislike: Lima beans

W - Why you run late: Mainly the kids, but also because I tend to change my mind about what I'm wearing as I'm getting ready to walk out the door.

X - X-rays you've had: Maybe 2 or 3

Y - Yummy food you make: I'm actually a pretty good cook, but my homemade brownies really are quite delicious.

Z - Zoo favorite: the big cats--leopards in particular, but lions, tigers, cheetas, etc.

So glad you participated even though you didn't like the topic. I think people enjoy learning about the person behind the blog.

You're another tall one! There are lots of tall Okie bloggers!

I change my clothes a lot too. I really wish I had TONS of clothes to choose from and I was skinny and everything looked good on me. Ha!

I'm putting in my 2 cents, I'd hate to see you stop blogging. :(

Don't stop blogging. Maybe just post once a week if you need a break?!
Glad you played along today.
