The ABC's of Me

So I realize that this blog is mainly about the kids now, and even more so photo dumbs in my rush to get photo's out. I saw this on my friend Heather's blog and I thought I would shamelessly steal it as a easy way to post about something other than the kids. :)
The ABC's of Me

1. Age – 31

2. Bed size – Queen, I dream of having a King someday.

3. Chore you dislike the most – folding laundry and putting it away.

4. Dog? Nope.

5. Essential start to your day – taking a shower. I do some of my best thinking in the shower.

6. Favorite color- Red

7. Gold or Silver- Silver

8. Height- 5’6

9. Instruments you have played – nothing, how sad **rushing off to sign the boys up for piano lessons**

10. Job Life – Team Leader for a sustainably green paper company **sounds much more glamorous than it really is**

11. Kids- Yup.. Darrian (3 1/2 going on 16) and Quincy & Miles (4 Months and 1 day)

12. Live – Northern California

13. Mom’s name – Karen

14. Nicknames – Shell, Michie, Kat

15. Overnight hospital stays – When I broke my ankle and had to have surgery when I was 14 and then once with Darrian, and one with the twins.

16. Pet Peeves – oh I think I have many.. a top few.. people who complain but do nothing to change anything, injustice, dirty dishes in the sink.

17. Quote from a movie – If this were quotes from a book I would have a ton. I am not a big movie watcher.. (calm down Julie) so I can't think of a great quote from a movie. But I was watching Maya Angelou the other day and she said so many great quotes I will take one of those, and I think it counts because I saw it on a TV and not in a book.

"I am grateful to have been loved and to be loved now and to be able to
love, because that liberates. Love liberates. It doesn't just
hold—that's ego. Love liberates. It doesn't bind. Love says, 'I love
you. I love you if you're in China. I love you if you're across town. I
love you if you're in Harlem. I love you. I would like to be near you.
I'd like to have your arms around me. I'd like to hear your voice in my
ear. But that's not possible now, so I love you. Go.'" — Dr. Maya

"If a human being dreams a great dream, dares to love somebody; if a
human being dares to be Martin King, or Mahatma Gandhi, or Mother
Theresa, or Malcolm X; if a human being dares to be bigger than the
condition into which she or he was born—it means so can you. And so you
can try to stretch, stretch, stretch yourself so you can internalize, 'Homo sum, humani nil a me alienum puto. I am a human being, nothing human can be alien to me.' That's one thing I'm learning." — Dr. Maya Angelou

18.Righty or Lefty or Politics- I am pretty Lefty, sometimes center but you will never catch me on the Right :)

19, Siblings – 1 brother Antonio (34)

20. Time you wake up on weekdays – well several times.. but for good at 4:45 am

21. Underwear – yes. mostly cute but comfy.

22. vegetable you don’t like – I can't really think of one.. I don't always love eggplant it has to be cooked a certain way. (and drowning it in sauce doesn't hurt)

23. What makes you late – my kids and husband, in opposite order.

24. Xray you have had – I have had several. Last one was after I had the boys.

25. Yummy good food you make – i am a recipe follower to a T, Keith loves my enchilada's. They have cream cheese in them what is not to love.

26. Zoo animal favorite – Tigers and Lions.

Happy Monday Peeps.. More photo dumps coming soon :)
