Nablopomo Intro: 26 things

Guess what! I've decided to do the November post challenge on NaBloPoMo. That's right... go ahead and laugh. And scoff. And doubt. I know: you think I've been body snatched. Nope. I'm just tired of not doing what I love doing: writing. But I'm MORE tired of not talking to all the wonderful people I've met online through this blog. I miss hearing (OK, reading) about your life and times. So, to kick things off I saw this done by Roger (aka MylHiBug on Twitter - and HELLO ROGER! TWEET SOMETHING, WILL YA!) over at A Screed in Time who boosted it from Michelle of My Two Army Brats fame. I liked it so I boosted it, too! OK, so yes, it was several months ago (April!) that they posted theirs and I'm (a) behind. But anywhom, here goes:

A - Age: 53 this month. Unless, like most people, I get to count the day I first met my parents as my birthday, in which case I'm only 43. Either way, I'm good. And old. LOL!

B - Bed size: Queen

C - Chore you hate: Unloading the dishwasher, putting away laundry, filing paper work. I'm happy to load it, wash it, or pay it - just PLEASE don't make me do the rest! Isn't that why I had kids???

D - Dad's Name: Don

E- Essential start to your day item: COOOOOFFFFFEEEEEEE

F - Favorite actor(s): Male: Sam Elliott, Mike Rowe - both are rugged and sexy. Female: Doris Day because in her hayday she was amazingly beautiful, witty, and extremely talented. Plus, she's aged beautiful and gracefully -- something I so dearly aspire to personally achieve.

G - Gold or Silver: Gold

H - Height: 5ft 4in (At least for a few more years.)

I - Instruments you play(ed): Clarinet starting in 6th grade but only so I could get in the band to be a twirler.

J- Occupation: SAHMFCEFTN (stay at home mom/former corporate educator/full-time nut!)

K- Kid(s): Legally mine: Bug 30, Twig 27, MG 18 Should have been mine: Tori, DD, Angel

L - Living arrangements: Wonderfully blessed with a beautiful home that share with my husband of almost 30 years, MG, and DD (MG's best friend who needed a safe place to be for a while.)

M - Mom's name: Jo

N- Nicknames: B**** (At least that's what I get called by MG most of the time unless she wants something.) Sweetie (by Hubby)

O - Overnight hospital stay other than giving birth: Accidental MEKP poisoning in 1980. Almost died. Hysterectomy/Wisdom teeth extraction resulting in an anaerobic bacterial infection in my face in 1986. Almost died. If I was a cat I'd be down to only 8 lives left!

P - Pet Peeve: Tripping over MG's friggin clodhoppers in the middle of whatever floor she happens to be walking across when she decides to go barefoot!

Q - Quotes you like: We go through what we go through so we can help others go through what we went through. ~from my wonderful friend over at Family Life In the Desert

R - Right or left handed: Right

S - Siblings: None

T - Time you wake up: Use to be as late as possible but in the last few years I can't sleep past 8:30 or 9:00 most of the time.

U- Underwear: Granny panties... I CANNOT do buttfloss!

V - Vegetable you dislike: peas! I total agree with Michelle who said, "Seriously food should not explode in my mouth when I bite into it IYKWIM!!" Especially when the explosion is malodorous green slime! YUUUUCK!

W - Ways you run late: Just need to do one more quick thing...

X - X-rays you've had: So many I could be my own light source!

Y - Yummy food you make: Meatloaf. Seriously. It is one of my kids' favorites 'cuz it's all meat. None of those nasty fillers like carrots, corn, peas, etc. Just good old lean ground beef seasoned and cooked to perfection!

Z - Zodiac: Scorpio

OK, so that's it. Feel free to do your own 26 and then come let me know so I can see what all we have in common. I was amazed at how alike Michelle and I are.

For now, Peace Blessings and A B, C D, E F G....

    Glad to see ya around! Hope all is well. And I don't know what else I said except that I'll be driving to Michigan tomorrow to find out about our baby to be!

  4. Does this mean I get a daily dose of Damama? Great! Life is looking up!!!
    If I ever get my act together again I might just do this one, but I'm seriously not committing to more than about two posts a week at the moment. We'll wait and see.
    Good to see you back, love.

  5. OMG a Damama sighting!!! How awesome is that?

    First things first - I don't play on Twitter anymore (sorry), It got way to crazy for me, so I Plurk instead, way easier to understand and keep a conversation going. :)

    So you're doing NaBloPoMo as well? That's great, because that means 30 opportunities to learn from Damama. Good luck with it, I'm kind of doing a three-for, with NaBloPoMo, NaNoWriMo, and NaPraGoMo. Come visit again and you'll see what it's all about. :) In fact, I need to go and post something awesome, well at least mediocre, now.

  6. It's good to see you back in the blogverse!

    I have been so busy myself that I haven't posted much. I have a lot to post about though. I hope to post later today.

  7. So good to see you back. I've really missed you. And I love me some Sam Elliot and granny panties too.
