Here is a picture for you Jenny, with my bangs not straightened or for Marcia with my fringe curly… I was driving Izzy to school and at a stop light I multitasked and took this pic. (I was taking the camera to school so they could capture pics of Izzy in pre-k… ) and I am not looking into the camera because I was keeping my eye on the cars in front of me. You know how much I hate seeing pics of myself, ick!

a tag ~ a meme!

Thursday, August 23rd, 2007

Karen has tagged me for a fun meme! Here we go!

Accent – I don’t think I have one. I took a voice and articulation class in college and really tried to erase some of my okie slang, it creeps back from time to time but I don’t think I have any type of accent.

I don’t drink – milk, blech! I literally strain my cereal to eat it too. Just can’t stand thinking about the origin etc. blech again.

Chore I hate – mopping. Enough said.

Pets – Too many. Well, there’s Lady (white dog) and Rosa (black dog) and a bunch of bunnies and some outside cats who peek in the french doors in the kitchen every morning begging me for food or waiting for my leftover milk from my cereal… and Matt has goats! I don’t claim them.

Essential Electronics – My laptop, digital camera & cellphone.

Perfume – Laugh by Brighton is my favorite perfume! I also like Sung by Alfred Sung and Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker.

Gold or silver – Silver. My wedding band is gold and is an heirloom, it was Matt’s great grandmother’s. She died in the 1919 flu epidemic. It is a wide gold band with a solitare and inside it has her initials along with her husbands. We added ours when we married. I requested a white gold anniversary band with a diamond for each child for my 15th anniversary, but we unexpectedly ended up spending that one with Iz in the hospital right after her accident so maybe for my 20th ???

Insomnia – NEVER. My head hits the pillow and I am instantly sleeping. It’s all I can do to stay awake while we pray in bed. Sometimes when Matt squeezes my hand for my turn I have drifted off and quickly just start praying (ssh, don’t tell him).

Job Title – Mom, chef, secretary, gardener, chauffeur, nurse.

Most Admired Trait – I love people who are real. Just who they are and that’s that. Make sense?

Kids – four!

Phobia – I wouldn’t claim it as a ‘phobia,’ but I really despise germs and all things nasty. Really!

Religion – Well, Christian and believer.

Siblings – Two brothers.

Time I wake up – between five and six thirty.

Unusual talent/skill – I can cut, french braid, and color hair, that’s only unusual because I am self taught…

Vegetable I refuse to eat – brussel sprouts & beets

Worst habit – drinking coke when I know I shouldn’t.

X-rays – My arm in junior high when I fell on it trying to do a handspring, teeth…

My favorite meal – well either Mom’s chicken schnitzel or glazed ham… or the pasta John (Matt’s mom’s husband) makes for my birthday that has penne and artichokes, sun dried tomatoes, pine nuts, and lots of good stuff… I love food, can you tell?

I tag you!!!
