My Age, My Sign, & My Middle Name - the ABC's of Me (Old School Blogging)

Every month, Elaine from The Miss Elaine-ous Life hosts a link up calleed Old School Blogging. It takes us back to the way people used to blog. It's always lots of fun and I'm happy to be joining again with this ABC's of Me post! 
  • Age - 38. And a half, but who's counting?
  • Biggest fear - Toss up between heights and tight spaces. Fortunately, it is very rare to encounter both at the same time.
  • Current Time - Tricky question. It is currently 11:28am on Friday. However, I started typing this post on Thursday night around 10:00pm, but I was too tired to finish it.
  • Drink you last had - Water while I was on the treadmill at the gym.
  • Easiest person to talk to - David, my hubby.
  • Favorite Song - Too many to choose from!! My Wish (Rascall Flatts), I Hope You Dance (LeeAnn Womack), and When I Get Where I'm Going (Brad Paisley) all come to mind right away.
  • Grossest Memory - My two older girls were terrible spitter-uppers as infants and even into the toddler months. I spent a good two years of my life covered in and smelling like sour milk from all the times they puked on me.
  • Hometown - Lenoir, NC. I wish I could tell you it's actually French (i.e. Lin-wah), but it's not. It's a small town at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. 
  • In Love with - This guy!
  • Jealous of - Women who are naturally skinny or naturally confident regardless of their weight. I am neither.
  • Killed Someone? - Not unless you count all the spiders and bugs that have been laid to rest underneath the soles of my shoes.
  • Longest Relationship - The one with my mom and dad - they have known me since the day I was born. Romantic relationship? My marriage to David. We will celebrate our 17th anniversary in December.

  • Middle Name - Elaine. I was named after my mother, whose name is also Elaine. Although, it is actually her middle name as well. I won't tell you her first name -there's a reason she doesn't use it! 
  • Number of siblings - One. My brother, Jeff, who is not quite two years older than me.
  • One Wish - No more violence. Every time I watch he news, all I hear about is brutality, sadness, and hatred. It hurts my hear ant makes me worry about the world my children will inherit.
  • Person you last called - My mom. 
  • Question you're always asked -  "Hey Mom! What's for dinner?"
  • Reason to Smile - These people:
  • Song you last sang - Smoke Break, Carrie Underwood's new single. Just as the song says, I don't drink (much) and I don't smoke (ever!), but sometimes we all need a metaphorical smoke break.
  • Time you woke up - 5:45am. Ugh!!! 
  • Underwear color - Purple. 
  • Vacation Destination - Somewhere near the ocean. Or somewhere I haven't been in Europe. Thanks to Dana, I have an itch to go Italy & the Swiss Alps! 
  • Worst Habit - Lack of self confidence and always finding fault with myself.
  • X-rays you've had - Dental, ultrasounds, and collarbone. I have never had a broken bone, but earlier this year, my doctor was curious about my malformed collarbone. He could not believe that it had never been x-rayed, so he ordered some. As suspected, it is simply a congenital deformity that is only noticed by me and the masseuse any time I'm lucky enough to get a massage! 
  • Your favorite Food - Pizza. And chocolate cake. 
  • Zodiac Sign - Pisces, which is represented by two fish swimming in opposite directions. This is supposed to indicate the dual personality of people born between February 19-March 20 - one grounded in reality and one made of imagination and dreams. According to one website, the top 10 characteristics of Pisces are (with notes about myself in parentheses): Oversensitive (yep), Compassionate (yep), Indecisive (yep), Dreamer/Artistic (yep/nope), Escapist (yep), Adaptive (kind of), Self-Pitying (absolutely), Social (so-so), Idealist (somewhat), and Romantic/LoveStruck (not at all).
