A. Age: 29. I turn 30 this year, and I'm not sure how I feel about it. I'm excited for what my 30s will bring, but still HOLY SHIT, I'M TURNING 30!
B. Bed size: Queen. And it's finally feeling like a queen sized bed, now that Yoda has been moved to sleeping with Adam, Leia sleeps on her bed and the cats have discovered the heated blankets on the kids bed.
C. Chore that you hate: Cleaning the cat box. If I could teach them to use the toilet I would, but Simba would probably decide it was a new toy and I'd be mopping up toilet water all the damn time and Wilbur is a scaredy cat so I doubt I could get him near one so cat box it is...
D. Dogs: Two, Yoda (the pug) and Leia (the lab puppy).
E. Essential start to your day: Coffee. Strong with a little French vanilla Coffeemate creamer. OR white chocolate mocha, no whip from a coffeeshop.
F. Favorite color: I like all colors for the most part and my favorite color varies with my mood; however, I am rather partial to blues and reds.
G. Gold or Silver: White gold or silver
H. Height: 5’4″
I. Instruments you play: None... I've always wanted to learn to play the guitar, the piano, and the violin. Maybe one day.
J. Job title: Mom. Medical transcriptionist. Homeschooler.
K. Kids: Two (duh), Adam (13) and Carus (10).
L. Live: Portland metro area, Oregon
M. Mother’s name: Terye
N. Nicknames: Becca
O. Overnight hospital stays: Couple nights for when I had the kids, plus the week after Adam was born when he was in the NICU and about a week when he was 9 months when he had RSV. He seemed to always have a cold as a baby, which I think has been a good thing after all because he rarely gets sick now. He carries the germs home for the rest of us, but he doesn't get sick that much. Carus on the other hand, has always had a hard time with her colds where they totally knock her out, but has yet to get a bad bad one (as in requiring hospitalization bad).
P. Pet peeves: The improper use of the words there/their/they’re and your/you’re. The fact that my car does not have remote locks. (I didn't realize that would be so annoying, but holy hell it is. Can't wait for us to get the aftermarket remote lock installed.)
Q. Quote from a movie: "And Daddy, they took my boot." "Oh, those are the ones I bought you." (The only one I could think of that wasn't from The Princess Bride, who both Jen and Bethany used.) "Inconceivable!"
R. Right- or left-handed: Right.
S. Siblings: Three brothers (Bud, Peter, and Charlie).
T. Tastes you do not like: Black licorice, olives, mushrooms (though I think that might be more texture than taste).
U. Underwear: Yes.
V. Vegetable(s) you hate: Um... can't think of one. Can we just say olives and mushrooms?
W. What makes you run late: Waiting for others to go. Also, sometimes I misjudge how long it will take to get there/get ready.
X. X-Rays you’ve had: About a bazillion kajillion, although I’ve never officially broken a bone. I've also had some CTs and some ultrasounds not related to pregnancy.
Y. Yummy food that you make: Lots of stuff. I'm a pretty good cook, if I say so myself. And I do.
Z. Zoo animal: Lions, tigers, and bears. Ooohh mmyyy
