I've been sew busy hanging out with my sewing machine lately that I haven't really been online much.  I guess I'm trying to get myself prepared for when the baby arrives and I'll have NO time for the interwebs.  Good news is that I'm almost done with the baby quilt!  I've got to figure out what I'm going to do for a border.  It's the borders that always get me.  Not working with a pattern is also probably part of the problem.  Since I was in the sewing mood, I'm making pillows too.  All the kids are going to get a pillow in the shape of their initial.  I bought a pattern of the letters in the alphabet a couple of years ago and have only made one measly letter pillow from it. I think it's time I made use of the pattern.  Anyhoo...   While briefly running through my Google Reader, I came across an ABC's of Me post from Layla.  I thought it looked fun so I decided to give it a try.

A. Age: 32,  When did this happen?

B. Bed Size: We have a full size, but I'd L-O-V-E to have a bigger bed.

C. Chore you hate: All of them!  But if I had to pick one specific "chore" it'd be the damn dishes.  I hate washing dishes.

D. Dogs: Love dogs!  I used to only have a thing for big dogs, but then my friend Cam got Miss Clementine, a Chinese Crested, and I want to steal her every time I see her.

E. Essential start to your day:  Peeing, please don't get between me and the bathroom.  I WILL run you down.

F. Favorite Color:  I like lots of colors, but I migrate towards black, turquoise, and green.

G. Gold or silver:  Um... white gold and/or silver.  I'm not a big fan of yellow gold.

H. Height: 5'1" My daughter says that she and I are "Shorty McShortShort's".

I. Instruments you play: I played the clarinet from 5th grade until my freshman year of high school.  During the two week long band camp before school started, I made the mistake of forgetting my sunscreen.  If you haven't noticed I'm also "Whitey McWhiteWhite" and the band director wouldn't allow me to go inside to put on sunscreen and I developed sun poisoning, had to go to the doctor, it wasn't pretty.  Words were exchanged and I dropped out of band.  I miss it terribly.

J. Job title:  Mom, cook, taxi driver, maid, etc...

K. Kids:  I have a son and a daughter and we've always said that was enough.  HOWEVER, we now find ourselves on the verge of our third child and I'm more excited about it that I thought I'd be!

L. Live:  In the country!

M. Mom's name: Mom.

N. Nicknames:  I've never really had nicknames, but in certain circles I'm known as Shiny. =)

O. Overnight hospital stays: The only overnight stays I've had in the hospital were when my kids were born.  I'm grateful for that because no one really wants to be at a hospital.

P. Pet Peeve:  I have so many pet peeves!  There is no way I could list them all.... not using a blinker, but coming to a dead stop in front of me before turning... pulling out in front of me (going 60 mph) then pulling into the next drive or going 30 mph...  idiots, spiteful people, cloudy days, blowing out my flip flop, and other non-essentials.

Q. Quote from a movie:  "Yes they deserved to die! And I hope they burn in Hell!!"  I know it's a crazy looking quote, but if you've seen the movie you know it's a GREAT film.

R. Right or left handed: Right

S. Siblings: I have five half brothers.  They all grew up in Florida, I grew up in Kentucky.  They obviously got the better deal here.

T. Time you wake up:  Too damn early.  Most days I have to get up about 5:30-6:00am.  I know you're jealous.

U. Underwear:  Yep, I wear 'em.  These days it's the good ol' granny panties.  I'm sure my husband is a huge fan.

V. Vegetables you dislike:  Sweet potatoes... nasty, nasty, nasty!

W. What makes you run late:  Life.

X. X-rays you've had:   Not too many... several routine ones at the dentist's office and one of my chest.

Y. Yummy food you make:  My banana bread is always a hit with the family.

Z. Zoo animal:  Let's see... I don't really have a favorite zoo animal, but we are looking forward to seeing the new exhibit at the Louisville Zoo, Glacier Run, where they will have Polar bears!

What are your ABC's?
