Tuesday Tidbit: 26 to be precise

Now I know my ABC's 
next time won't you sing with me!

(A) Age: 31, not an exciting number, but it's mine and I am totally owning it
(B) Bed Size:
(C) Chore You Hate: All of them.
(D) Dogs? Yes. Two. Elaine, "Lainey" cutest little shepard/collie mix and Arthur our alpha male, blocky head pure bred labrador. 
(E) Essential Start Your Day Item: scrunchie, like 1980's fluffy scrunchie. I hate having my hair down.
(F) Favorite Color: Gray and pink
(G) Gold or Silver? White gold
(H) Height: 5ft 10 1/2 in (that 1/2 is a big deal)
(I) Instruments You Play: Cornet/trumpet and french horn...yes I was a band geek
(J) Job Title: Operations Supervisor-says a lot, right? I am a Federal Employee and that is as much specificity as I like to give about my employer.
(K) Kids: Two perfect children (boy and a girl). Duder is 3 and The Bug is 1 1/2
(L) Live: California
(M) Mom's Name: how is this for Super-Mexican: Maria Guadalupe
(N) Nicknames: Soph, Sophie, Turtle
(O) Overnight Hospital Stays? too many, most recent? My beautiful Bug's birth
(P) Pet Peeve: When people speak over authoritatively about something they are obviously under educated about or just flat out wrong about.
(Q) Quote from a Movie: Who knows where thoughts come from? They just appear. ~Lucas in Empire Records
(R) Right or Left Handed? Right.
(S) Siblings: Two older sisters.
(T) Time You Wake Up? On run days, 4:45 a.m. non-run days around 6:30 or 7:00.... when I am off the running bandwagon I will sleep as long as the kids let me.
(U) Underwear: always, comando is not really my thing. style? bikini briefs
(V) Vegetable You Dislike: What? I've never met a vegetable I didn't like.
(W) What Makes You Run Late: Me. I over estimate the time I have available and under estimate how much time I will take to do things. If I have 5 minutes to spare, I try to squeeze in 30 minutes worth of work.
(X) X-Rays You've Had Done: everything but my elbows and toes pretty much
(Y) Yummy Food You Make: Several varieties of hearty barley soups, Cocido (Mexican beef soup with delicious vegetables including Chayote squash), Carbonara, Risotto and fudge
(Z) Zoo, Favorite Animal: Turtles, DUH!
Why I Kick A$$: Did I tell you I PR'd on Sunday? Yay, I am still riding that wave. 
Thankful Three
  1. Krav Maga
  2. Chobani bulk packs at Costco
  3. my new found resolve to get my belly under control

you make me laugh. I love your comment about your mom's most Mexican name. Ha ha. I get irritated with overly arrogant or know it all people too. Thanks for your comments're right, my blog is for me and I need to remember that. :) Thanks for liking my writing. Funny, in high school I told my coach that I had the desire to go into English or Writing of some kind and he pretty much shot me down so low and told me how much I suck at writing and have no talent and should be an engineer. I believed him for a long time and then realized that I didn't have to necessarily follow any rules...I just had to write what came out.
