It's been awhile since I've done one of these. I saw these random questions and thought I should do that... What makes me really mad though, is I wanted to add a picture of myself in this post, and I don't have any recent ones. None that are good any way. And I promised myself that with this new phone, I'd capture myself more. Clearly I need to work on that...
This is the one I'm going with. I'm a total wimp and don't like the cold and the kids insisted on going to the park. So I bundled up and went along.
Bedsize: King, is there any other kind?
Chores that you hate: Washing the floor…No wait, cleaning toilets… No wait, dusting… No wait... ;-)
Dogs: I’m totally a dog person, but after 14 years of marriage, we still don’t have one. We have kids though, and they’re way more responsibility… But I’m getting closer and closer to the idea of a four-legged friend, every day .
Essential start to your day: Coffee and either a bowl of cereal or oatmeal.
Favorite color: This year I’m loving orange and navy.
Gold or Silver: Silver, all the way.
Height: I’ve always said 5’ 4”, but I don’t know if that’s 100% accurate…
Instruments you play: Just my voice.
Job title: Which one to choose from… Wife, Mummy, Daughter, Sister, Niece, Auntie, Granddaughter, Daughter-in-law, Godmother, Friend, Homemaker, Baker, Chef, Crafter, Driver, Photographer…[I'm sure there's more]
Kids: 2. Lovely in every way. I’m very blessed to have one of each.
Live: Calgary, Alberta. I suspect I’ll be here my entire life.
Mother's Name: I still call her Mum, but if she’s not paying attention, I get it by saying “Candy”.
Nicknames: Candycane, by Barry. Can or Cand. Really though, Candy just isn’t that long. [But I have to admit I shorten everyone’s name, whether they like it or not]
Overnight hospital stays: Thankfully, the list isn't long. When each of my kids were born. Mad was a 1 night stay, Mason 3 nights. [There were baby not eating and latching issues with him] Also, one night when I was a teenager and got my tonsils out.
Pet peeves: Drivers that don’t give you a thank you wave, when you let them in. OH, and people that press the cross walk button and JUST START WALKING… C’mon people, isn’t your life worth more to you than that???
Quote from a movie or tv show: "Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you’re my only hope!"
Right or Lefty: Righty.
Siblings: my little brother, who towers over me.
Time you wake up: I’ve NEVER been a morning person… Ever. But lately I’m waking up around 7:15 am, that doesn’t mean I hop right out of bed, good gracious NO. But my body naturally wakes up then…
Unusual: The amounts of journals I have, at any one given time... And they've all got something in them. It's silly really...
Vegetable you hate: I’m pretty open to most vegetables… I love brussel sprouts and turnips… But one thing that scares me, is cooked spinach… I like it in salads, but all steamed and wilted… Nope, not sure that’s right at all… [Even with the butter added]
What makes you run late: Miss Madelyn. Getting her anywhere on time is a challenge.
X-Rays You've Had: Lucky me, all that comes to mind is the dentist.
Yummy food you make: My kids often request my own homemade ‘Vietnamese [Pork & Noodle] Dish’, my sweet heart often requests my Buffalo Chicken Dip.
Zoo Animal: The otters, maybe I'll come back as an otter. It looks like they have so much fun.
