A-Z list, thanks to Silverback!

Monday, February 08, 2010

My furry friend said I should do this as well, so here it is....

A is for Age: I’ll be 39 this year…one year away from joining the Halfway to Eighty Club!

B is for Before: Before SP, I don’t think I understood what the word “hope” meant.

C is for Career: Hah! I’ve done a lot…social services, special Olympics, mortgage business, worker’s comp, retail, healthcare, etc. Currently? I cannot find a job for anything!

D is for Dad's name: dead (nothing else to say regarding that one)

E is for Essential items to bring to a party: Good attitude, gift of some sort, and my hubby

F is for Favorite song or music: I have several but the one that stands out the most is Matchbox Twenty “Let’s See How Far We’ve Come”

G is for Goof off thing to do: High Velocity Bowling on the PS3…it’s a hoot! Play with the dog in the backyard and wrestle around the living room.

H is for Hometown: Rockford, Illinois

I is for Instrument you play: I played the Coronet/Trumpet one year, and can noodle my way around a keyboard ever so slightly (haven’t done it in years, but always wanted lessons). I used to be able to read sheet music flawlessly, but those days are gone.

J is for Jam or Jelly you like: Grape Jelly

K is for Kids: That’s up to God at this point. However, I do have a fur-kid named Finnegan who is a crack up!

L is for Living arrangement: Live in a house with my hubby of almost 12 years and our pooch.

M is for Mom's name: Jackie.

N is for Name of best friend: God (although He might not see it that way!), Shawn (hubby).

O is for Overnight Stay in a Hospital: Quite a few unfortunately

P is for Phobias: Claustrophobia, Heights, probably a few insects here and there such as wasps.

Q is for Quote you like: Worrying is like a rocking chair; it gives you something to do, but doesn’t get you anywhere. Also, Forgiveness means letting go of the hope that the past could have been different.

R is for Relationship that lasted longest: My hubby: 15 years together, going on 12 years of marriage.

S is for Siblings: One older sister whom I have no relationship with.

T is for Texas, ever been? Driven through it a couple of times, but that’s it so far.

U is for Unique trait: Sadly, nothing terribly unique here.

V is for vegetable you love: Broccoli and Cauliflower, plus tomatoes and cucumbers.

W is for Worst traits: paralyzing fear, overreacting, lack of patience, not believing that I *truly* matter (although am working on all of these consistently).

X- is for X-rays you've had: Just about every part of my body has been x-rayed. I’m due for some head scan to check my pituitary, but I’ve put that off. If I have it done, then everything will have been x-rayed at one time or another.

Y is for Yummy food you make: Chicken manicotti, pico de gallo, brownies, and a homemade tomato noodle soup recipe from my grandmother.

Z is for Zodiac sign: Leo

    I agree with everyone here.

    You are very unique, dearie. You have a unique trait of being "you" and we love the "you". You matter so much.

    We have a number of things in common; I do not like heights(agh!!) and I like grape jelly although my favorite is wild strawbery jam.

    Cheers, sweetie!! emoticon

    Of course you are unique! What a silly answer to your question.

    Thanks for your kind words, it is good to see you back, I was getting worried... Don't know if you missed the memo, but I am coming to Rockford March 7-12th and yes I will be there for our final weigh-in. So I totally get to meet you! And I am really excited!

    I am with Silver about your uniqueness. You are missing about not being unique.

    Love the comments though. Very cool that I knew most of them.

    You play High Velocity Bowling on the PS3…it’s a hoot! Play with the dog in the backyard ... that is one talented dog !!! Should I ask which one of you holds high score emoticon

    Sorry couldn't resist that one.

    You have had a rich and varied career. Someone with that range of experience should find something soon ... take heart hon!

    PS ... you are about as unique as they come ... how is that for a unique trait !!
