lazy sunday

A. Age: 32

B. Bed size: California King. It's hard to sleep in anything else.

C. Chore you dislike: Most, but if I have to pick I'd say vacuuming.

D. Dogs: None. Not a big dog person.

E. Essential start to your day: Bathroom, meds, shower.

F. Favorite color: Blue.

G. Gold or silver: Silver. Most of my jewelry is silver and my wedding rings are platinum.

H. Height: 5'7" ish.

I. Instruments you play(ed): Played the clarinet for (...doing the math...) 12 years? Started in fifth grade and was a certified band nerd throughout high school and college. Even marched in college.

J. Job title: Early Intervention Service Coordinator

K. Kids: Two and a half year old Noah Taylor, the coolest kid I know.

L. Live: In a split-level house in Winfield, IL

M. Mom’s name: Kathleen

N. Nicknames: Mindy, since my full name is Melinda, but I also get Min or Mind a lot.

O. Overnight hospital stays: Lots. Was in a week after my gall bladder was removed. Was in a few days after my lung biopsy. Was in for five days due to a post-op infection. And several days following Noah's birth.

P. Pet Peeve: Again, lots. Ignorance and stupidity are probably on top of the list.

Q. Quote from a movie: I'm terrible with quotes. I blame it on my 80 year old memory.

R. Righty or lefty: Righty. I think Noah's gonna be a south-paw.

S. Siblings: One sister, one half-sister, three brothers-in-law, and two sisters-in-law.

T. Time you wake up: Depends on the day, but since Noah started on a normal sleep schedule, I can't sleep much past 8:00.

U. Underwear: Boring cotton bikinis. Usually Hanes from Target cuz they're cheap.

V. Vegetables you don’t like: I like most, but definitely can't do brussel sprouts or peas. Blech.

W. What makes you run late: Usually Ben. Honestly, if it's just me, I can usually have my shit together in time, but when it's the two (or three) of us going anywhere, we're always late. But sometimes it's just because we oversleep.

X. X-rays you’ve had: So many. Probably every joint has been x-rayed at some point.

Y. Yummy food you make: If you know me, you know I don't cook. :/ Wish I did, but fortunately, I don't have to. ;)

Z. Zoo animal favorites: Whatever gets Noah excited. This last zoo trip, he was excited to see the giraffes, and they were actually pretty cool.

Ooh I would LOVE to have a california king bed. All the room! I wouldn't know what to do with myself, besides stretch out and say 'Ahhhhh!'

Happy ICLW!

Visting from ICLW and know you posted on my blog a while back. That is pretty neat you are a service coordinator.

We have a king and love it. Do you have a hard time finding sheets for the California king? That was my thought. You must have a big bedroom!!

Did you conceive your little guy through IVF? It appears you are in the process of another IVF, right? I would love to know your history of TTC, you should look at my blog for the IF A-Z and fill it out!!
