Bed Size: Queen
Chore You Hate: Putting away laundry
Dogs: Had one for about a year or so when I was about 11. The kids want one "after the cats die."
Essential Start of Your Day: Coffee. It's not a "need" as in "I have to have it to function." I never used to drink it, but have come to enjoy the ritual of checking email and my social networks while enjoying a mug. I normally only have that one in a day.
Favorite Color: Hmmm, not sure. To wear I like shades of turquoise, light grey and baby pink. But in decor I lean towards neutrals, yellows and blues. And in general I like black, red, and purple. LOL
Gold or Silver: Silver
Height: 5'3" or so
Instruments I Play: Does recorder count? I still have the one my Dad bought me in grade 3, and I still play it. I also played clarinet in high school.
Job Title: Stay at home mom, loving wife, homeschool parent, family cook.... I refuse to be defined! LOL
Live: Southern Ontario
Mom's Name: Roslyn.
Nicknames: A friend of mine used to call me Alex. It really isn't related to my name at all. I called her Rocky, so I guess we were even.
Overnight Hospital Stays: Broke my wrist when I was 3 and had to stay overnight because I rebroke it after they set it. My kids were born at home.
Pet Peeve: People who are perpetually late.
Quote From a Movie: I just saw Amelie, so I'll go with one from that - You mean she would rather imagine herself relating to an absent person than build relationships with those around her?
Right or Left Handed: Right
Siblings: 2 sister
Time You Wake Up: Whenever hubby leaves for work, or the kids get up. Whichever is later.
Underwear: Absolutely! LOL
Veggie You Dislike: Mushrooms (though technically a fungus)
What Makes You Run Late: "Fat days." I can't find anything to wear on those days, and it takes me longer to get dressed.
X-Rays You Have Had: wrist, lungs
Yummy Food You Make:Oh I make a lot. I do steaks really well. I also make great roast chicken, and delicious Brussels sprouts (though my family disagrees)
Zoo Animal You Like Best: You know, I haven't been to a proper zoo in so long, I'm not sure. Though I adore penguins!
