ABC’s of me

I’ve seen several bloggers post this over the last few months, and I’ve always thought it would make an interesting post some day when the blog fodder well runs dry.  Which it did today.  So here we go!

A. Age: 60 (but not for much longer)

B. Bed size: queen

C. Chore that you hate: cleaning the bathroom

D. Dogs: Abby (black lab)

E. Essential start to your day: Diet Coke

F. Favorite color: blue

G. Gold or Silver: gold

H. Height: 5’ 1 ½”

I. Instruments you play: none :-(

J. Job title: Nana

K. Kids: 1 daughter

L. Location: southwestern Illinois

M. Make of car: Dodge minivan and VW Jetta Wagon

N. Nicknames: I don’t know that I’ve had any

O. Overnight hospital stays: tonsillectomy, 2 c-sections, c-section complications, gall bladder removal

P. Pet peeves: too many to list (although gum smacking is right up there)

Q. Quote from a movie: “I remember every detail. The Germans wore gray, you wore blue.” from Casablanca

R. Right or left handed: Right

S. Siblings: 2 younger sisters

T. TV Shows: I don’t really watch much TV … Cardinals or Blues games mostly, the news once in a while, and a few shows on HGTV

Y. Yummy food that you make: DH loves my chicken picatta (which is really Ina Garten’s chicken picatta)

Z. Zoo animal: penguins


  1. I'll have to keep this in mind too. What a nice way to get to know you better. I knew we were both Kathys and Nanas. Now I know we are about the same age ( I am a year ahead) and share HGTV and the Food Network. I think I would have to change that Make of car to Music though. Gotta have my music.

    Thanks for sharing yourself with us.

  2. I always love these getting to know you posts, haha..I may do one too. Have a good day!! HUGS

  3. Enjoyed learning a bit more about you. Somehow I have not realized that DD was your only child. Duh! where have I been?

    I do love Penguins, such neat little creatures.

    Happy week!

  4. That was fun. I like White Gold. I know a few woman who don't wear underwear, isn't that sick!
    I don't play an instrument either :(

  5. That is really good. I had seen that too. I should keep it in mind for those days. You and I are the same height. My Dad always said, it was good I was short because dynamite comes in small packages. :)

  6. I enjoyed the ABCs of you! I might have to try that some day!

    You've been tagged at my blog!


I am SO glad you stopped by! No proving that you're a robot here ... I want to hear what you have to say! ;-)
