ABCs

First I would like to report that my day of rest yesterday was so worth it.  I woke up today feeling great.  I took advantage of a free hour this morning and went for a 6 mile run outdoors.  It was only 20 degrees out but it just felt fantastic to be running outside again.  I set out without a mileage goal.  I figured I would do my easy 3 mile loop but I felt so good I decided to just keep going.  I have to remind myself that taking a day off should not be perceived as a set back.  Rest is necessary and important.  I need to continue to trust the cues that my body sends me.

I have seen this floating around the blog world so I thought, “hey why not!”

A. Age: 37

B. Bed size: Queen size bed for my husband and I.  We have never even contemplated getting a King.

C. Chore you dislike: Cleaning the bathroom

D. Dogs: None.  No pets actually.

E. Essential start to your day: A big hug for my son.

F. Favorite color: I don’t really have a favorite color.  I prefer earthy tones.  If I had to choose I would probably say green.

G. Gold or silver: Silver

H. Height: I always thought that I was 5’3″ but last year at a routine physical I was measured and told that I am actually 5’2″.

I. Instruments you play(ed): For some reason we had an organ and I took organ lessons as a child.  In middle school and junior high I played the clarinet and tried the saxophone for a little while.  Now I am usually the tambourine player when my 4 year old son wants to have a band.

J. Job title: Registered Nurse

K. Kids: One

L. Live: I live in Western Massachusetts.

M. Mom’s name: Lois

N. Nicknames: Aim

O. Overnight hospital stays: I suppose the fact that I work nights at the hospital doesn’t count!  I have only had two overnight hospital stays.  When I was 17 years old I had my tonsils out.  More recently I had a C-section when my son was born and I had to spend 4 long nights in the hospital.

P. Pet peeves: Texting while driving; when people say “I says” or “I goes”; people who speak loudly to non-English speakers.

Q. Quote from a movie: I’m so bad at remembering quotes but this is one of my all time favorite movies.  From Overboard with Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell.  Dean Proffitt: “What could I possibly give you… ever… that you don’t already have?” Joanna: “A little girl.”

R. Righty or lefty: Righty

S. Siblings: Nicole (35 years old)

T. Time you wake up: Well this is probably the most difficult question for me to answer.  If I am not working then I am up anywhere from 5:30 to 6:30 am depending on when my son wakes up.  On nights that I work this answer will vary depending on when I go to sleep.

U. Underwear: odd question…of course I wear them and that’s all I will say about that!

V. Vegetables you dont’ like: I have a confession to make.  I did not eat any vegetables until I was about 23 years old.  I now eat almost every veggie that comes my way.  I will try anything.

W. What makes you run late: I am always early.  I joke that I have to “try” to be on time.

X. X-rays you’ve had: Lots of dental X-rays; a chest X-ray for Peace Corps medical clearance

Y. Yummy food you make: I think that I make really good rice and beans. Thanks to the blog world I have made so many tasty dishes in the last couple of years.

Z. Zoo animal favorites: The zoo just isn’t my thing.  I hate the idea of the animals being all caged up.  I did enjoy seeing elephants when on safari in South Africa.  They are such fascinating animals.

So there you have it.  A little bit about me.

    1. I live in South Hadley, MA which is just north of Springfield. A good friend lived in Milford and my uncle recently moved there. It is such a small world.
