A. Age: 61, minus three weeks. Well, 20 days, if you have to be exact.
B. Bed size: King. When we got married our bedroom only had room for a double, and Roger -- who is taller and larger than I am -- tended to take his half out of the middle. We are on our third king.
C. Chore that you hate: Mopping the floor. I've done it less than 50 times in 30+ years of marriage. But that is because Roger, who is AWESOME, does it himself/trained the kids to do it.
D. Dogs: My family has had two. I tolerate them.
E. Essential start to your day: Tea. From loose leaves, in a preheated pot, with freshly boiled water. Or from a bag, if I can't pull that off.
F. Favorite color: Blue, or possibly pink..
G. Gold or silver: Gold. I wear silver, but gold.
H. Height: 5'6"ish. I always thought I was 5'8", but when my daughters hit that, I wasn't anymore. Only Branwen is still shorter than I am.
I. Instruments that you play: Flute and guitar. But not very often anymore.
J. Job title: Organizer-in-chief. Otherwise known as Mom/Grandma.
K. Kids: Arwen: 29. Branwen: 27. Miriel: almost 25.
Brandon: 23. Tirienne: 21. Kelson:19
L. Live: Fort Gratiot MI
M. Mother's name: was Mildred/Millie.
N. Nicknames: Hon. (My dad used to call me McClee. I miss it.)
O. Overnight hospital stays: Tonsillectomy in third grade, and Arwen and Branwen's births. (The other four kids were born at home.)
P. Pet peeves: Misplaced apostrophes. Grammar and vocabulary sloppiness, such as using "phased" for "fazed" or "mantle" for "mantel."
Q. Quote from a movie: "Nobody is as handsome as David. Even David."
Sabrina;1995 (Actually, pretty much anything from this or You've Got Mail. My family are memorization nerds.)
S: Siblings: My brother Patrick.
T: Travel favorite: Stratford Ontario.
U. Underwear: Yes, I wear it.
V. Vegetable(s) you hate: Beets. If I had $10 for every time my dad tried to persuade me that Harvard beets were good, I could put all my grandchildren through college. And don't even get me started on "redbeet eggs!" (hardboiled eggs pickled in beet juice and vinegar.)
W. What makes you run late: It would have to be a disaster. I am perpetually, habitually early.
X. X-rays you've had: Teeth. The time I didn't break my elbow. The time I DID break my elbow. The time I broke my nose. I'm a klutz.
Y. Yummy food that you make: Check the "tasty Tuesday" labeled posts.
Z. Zoo animal: The neurotic polar bear in the Louisville zoo. (My kids had better get this reference...!)
