The ABC's of Me

My blog friend, Karen posted this list and I found it really fun to learn more about her. I've decided to take her challenge and post my answers. I'm surprised how many of her answers I didn't have to change to fit me.

A. Age: 64 (as of 2 weeks ago)

B. Bed size: Queen size – no room for a king in our bedroom.

C. Chore you hate: Defrosting the freezer

D. Dogs’ Names: No pets but I used to have a Doberman named Elsa among others

E. Essential food item: Homemade breads

F. Favorite color: Probably blues, but also browns and yellows. I least like pink.

G. Gold or Silver: I do not wear much jewelry as I am allergic to some metals. My wedding ring is white gold. I usually wear a simple locket.

H. Height: 5’2″

I. I am: always praying for longer days (maybe I should change something about "T" below)

J. Job: retired in 2003 because of lung problems. Worked 10 years as a nurse and then 25 years as an accountant/controller.

K. Kids: 3 grown sons, Michael, Mark and Jeffery. A step-son, Jean-Richard, is deceased.

L. Living Arrangements: My husband, Tom, and I own a home in extreme S.E. Kansas.

M. M is for more projects in my head than I can ever finish in this lifetime

N. Nickname: Cathy. My middle name is Catherine and I went by Cathy until 5th grade when another Cathy joined our small class and the teacher insisted I had to start using Mary. Only a very few people are left that call me Cathy. I think I have a split personality because of this! Cathy and Mary are totally different people! LOL.

O. Overnight hospital stay(s): too many to count

P. Pet peeve: liars

Q. Quote from a movie: can't think of a single one

Right or Left handed: Right

S. Siblings: 1 half-sister but we weren't raised in the same household. My grandparents raised me and she lived with my mother and step-father in a nearby town.

T. Time you wake up: much later I used to..8-9 a.m. most days.

U. Unique thing about your car: Last year I finally got rid of my beloved 1987 Colt. Wish they still made them.

V. Vegetable you hate: hominy

W. Ways you run late: I’m normally early and hate it if I run late – I would rather show up early than late.

X. X-rays you’ve had: too many to remember

Y. Yummy food you make: from scratch yeast breads, especially cinnamon rolls

Z. Zoo animal favorite: zebras maybe? not sure I have a favorite
