ABCs of Me Meme

Here's a fun random "about me" meme I've seen around a bunch this week. First on The Written World and next on Amused by Books... who both got it from Fizzy Thoughts. I figured it's been awhile, so what the heck, and maybe you'll learn something you don't already know!

Me, at one year old.

Age: My birthday is coming up in 2 weeks and let's just say that I'll be closer to the half century mark than I was before! But I FEEL like 17 always! (Well, except for the occasional achy bones and such.)

Bed Size: King, and I'm begging for a new mattress. For my birthday maybe? :)

Chore that you hate: mopping the floor. It feels impossible.

Dogs: you know, they are okay, but I would only want one if  I lived out in the country on a farm. Then I'd like a German Shepard, or a Collie, or a Lab.

Essential start to your day: checking email, though there's usually nothing very exciting there.

Favorite colors: Lavender and/or plain old purple, but truly, I like them all.

Gold or Silver: Silver

Height: I'm really not sure, but probably about 5'5" or so.

Instruments you play: I can play the piano, sort of, and once upon a time, I played the clarinet, which was a blast. (Ha, was that a pun?)

Job Title: Mom first and foremost, but 12 hours a week I'm a library clerk.

Kids: There's four of them. Two boys, two girls. How's that for planning?

Live: Utah! A pretty great state.

Mother-in-Law’s name: I think I'll pass on this one but my great grandma's name is(was) Goldie. When I was a kid I called her Grandma Goldilocks.

Nicknames: Suey

Overnight hospital stays: When I had kids. 

Pet Peeves: Being late

Quote from a movie: "Have fun storming the castle! or "It's not you are underneath, it's what you do that defines you." or "I love you!" "I know." 

Right or Left handed: Right

Siblings: I'm the oldest of 9 kids. I have three sisters and five brothers.

Time you wake up: 6:30 weekdays to get the kids up and out the door. Weekends I sleep in until 9 or 10 sometimes.

Underwear: Yes.

Vegetable you hate: Celery would have to top the list I'd say.

What makes you run late: Other people... or a phone call.

X-Rays you’ve had: At the dentist, on my teeth, is all, I think. 

Yummy food that you make: I like to bake. Rolls, cookies, desserts, etc.

Zoo animal: Gorillas. I could watch them forever.

Join in if you so desire! Tell us more about you!


  1. Oh fun! I'm going to have to steal this idea. I've been doing so many review posts and nothing else that even I'M getting bored. :)

    I didn't know some of this stuff about you! Gorillas kinda freak me out, btw.

  2. I didn't know your birthday is in a couple of weeks. Are you doing anything fun?

    Yours is the second one of these I've seen. I like your title the best, so I stole it. ;)

  3. Happy almost birthday! I hope to have a king bed someday! Sounds so luxurious!

  4. I really like reading these, but am still reluctant to do my own. I'm not that exciting. Love the baby pictures!

  5. Happy birthday coming up! I love your baby pictures, too. It's so fun to learn stuff like that about people. :)

  6. I had fun doing this meme. I hadn't done one in ages! I am enjoying reading all the other people that are joining in, too.

  7. Fun. Who knew you liked gorillas? Me, I prefer giraffes.
