This is me, from A to Z

I saw this on Scientific Nature of the Whammy and loved the idea - so here goes!

A. Age: 38

B. Bed size: King.  And it's a Sleep Number bed, which totally rocks - unless the little ones crawl into bed with us at night, in which case I end up sleeping in the middle.

C. Chore that you hate: Mopping.  With two kids and three dogs, it always feels like an exercise in futility.

D. Dogs: Three!  Ricky, our black lab mix; Molly, our Boston Terror (I know it's terrier, but if you've ever met one you'd understand); and Albert, the poodle mix who is our old man at age 12.

E. Essential start to your day: Hugs from my kids.

F. Favorite color: Dark purple and navy blue.

G. Gold or Silver: White gold, please.  Yellow gold doesn't look good with my skin tone, but all the silver rings I wore in high school inevitably turned my fingers green.

H. Height: 5’5″

I. Instruments you play: None.  I've always wanted to play piano, but never got around to it.

J. Job title: Director, Classical Conversations of NE Cobb.
K. Kids: David will be 6 in June, and Sophie will be 5 in August.
L. Live: Marietta, GA - a suburb of Atlanta.

M. Mother’s name: Sally.

N. Nicknames: Mommy.

O. Overnight hospital stays: Twice - once after each of my emergency c-sections.  (Thank you, pre-eclempsia!)

P. Pet peeves: I'm a Grammar Nazi, so text spelling bugs me, as do errors in punctuation and spelling.

Q. Quote from a movie: “Mother is the word for God on the lips and hearts of children everywhere." It's from The Crow, but it's originally a quote from William Makepeace Thackeray.

R. Right- or left-handed: Right

S. Siblings: One sister and two brothers, all quite a bit older than me (they were 13, 11, and 10 when I was born).

T. Tattoos & Piercings: I have four holes in my left ear and two in my right.  I also have five tattoos.

U. Underwear: Modesty prevents me from expounding on this topic :)

V. Vegetable(s) you hate: Tomatoes.  I know they're really a fruit, but I've always despised them.

W. What makes you run late: My kids and my inability to stop reading things on the internet.

X. X-Rays you’ve had: Mostly dental, though I did have a chest x-ray a few years ago when I had walking pneumonia.

Y. Yummy food that you make: Chicken enchiladas.

Z. Zoo animal: Giraffe!  Zoo Atlanta had a baby giraffe a few years ago that was literally the cutest thing I've ever seen.
