The ABC's of ME

Accent: When we lived in Illinois people thought I was from the South...Now I live IN THE SOUTH and people say you are a Yankee!! Well whatever!!

Breakfast or no breakfast: Always breakfast!! I cannot live without something to eat and drink!! You know it is good for your health too and also for weight loss...

Chore I don’t care for: This would be cleaning my oven!! It needs it right now!! I have always hated doing that and the next one would probably be cleaning out my fridge..that also needs to be done now!!

Dog or Cat: We just have Annie now!! That is fine with us. Along the years we have had our share of dogs and cats but always ended up with the feline variety!! Boy have we had some varieties too!!

Essential Electronics: Computer; my camera; and probably our GPS which is coming!!

Favorite Cologne: Don't really have one anymore!! I used to love WHITE DIAMONDS!!

Gold or Silver: Silver!!

Handbag I carry most often: I love love love purses or handbags...whichever word you want to use!! I am always changing them!! I love variety again so now I am carrying my new one from last year!! Always love looking at them...along with Shoes this is my BIG downfall!!

Insomnia: Sometimes but Tylenol PM works great!!

Job Title: Retired or as hubby says RETARED!! He is just kidding of course!!

Kids: Three...all grown up now with lives of their own...Jon is 43 and lives in California; Julie is 40 and lives with her family in Illinois; Becky is 35 and lives here in Savannah with her family!! They grew up WAY TOO FAST!!

Living Arrangements: I live with my hubby or 44 years here in a 2-story (with 14 steps) home outside of Savannah!!

Most Admirable Trait: Let me see...Hospitable; fun; and friendly!!

Naughtiest Childhood Behavior: That was a long long time ago!! I I was told that I used to throw temper tantrums. Course I do not remember them so I am sure that would be a very bad thing to do!! I walked away from home one day when I was very little. Mother found me down at the end of the road talking to a neighbor...she spanked me all the way home!!

Overnight hospital stays: Pregnancy of course..3 times and also one other major operation!! I hope to stay away from that place for a long long time!!

Phobias: I'm claustrophobic!! Never was that way until I got older and now it is really a problem; I don't like heights too much either!!

Quote: I love love love quotes. I collect them..Maybe one of my favorites is: "You cannot control the length of your life just the depth." Yeap that is a favorite!!

Reason to smile: I do not need a reason to smile!! I think that we should laugh as often as we can every minute of the day!! Life is so short and you need laughter and happiness as often as possible!!

Siblings: One brother!! 3 1/2 years younger!!

Time I wake up: Whenever!! Usually around 7:30 a.m. I love to SLEEP!!

Unusual Talent or Skill: Oh my!! Well there really is nothing unusual about me that I know about anyway!! Ask some of my family or friends to get that answer!!

Vegetable I Refuse to Eat: I always say that I have YET to meet a vegetable that I do not like. Now since living here though...I might say Collard Greens..i really do not like that!!

Worst Habit: Worrying about security in later life!!...which is soon!!

X-rays: Oh I have definitely had my share!! More coming up soon..Once a year habit!!

Yummy Stuff: Scrapbooking materials to use; my hubby; bills all paid..those are all yummy to me!! Oh and friends too!!

Zoo Animal I Like Most: it has been a while since I went to a Zoo...but I think it is more fun watching the monkeys!! I love all of the animals...giraffes; bears...just all of them..Not an actual favorite!!

I do NOT think you have a Southern accent... but I don't think you have a NORTHern accent either! You just sound like Sandy to me!

I've heard collard greens are yucky... but I've never tried them! Guess I shoulda done that while I was down there!

Denise said...

This was fun.

Peggy said...

We are more alike than I thought. Almost all your answers could have been mine. :)

Sandy B & Dick said...

I agree with Peggy...we are indeed very much alike, plus sharing the same name and age! Lucky us:-)

Hi Sandy,
Great to learn a bit more about you. I laughed at the 2 story 14 steps because I have the same number to 2nd story. Do you ever find yourself counting them at night? I do!!
Have a great weekend..

I enjoyed reading the meme and getting to learn more about you. I also like most vegetables but have never tasted collard greens, so don't know if I like them. I'm not too fond of brussel sprouts, but do like cabbage.

Take care and thanks for stopping by and commenting on my post.

Mary said...

You have a nice Memorial Day weekend, Love and hugs Grams

Betty said...

I don't like cleaning ovens either. And mine is self stinks when I set it, and the whole house reeks. No, I can live with the overflown pie filling at the's there, and it gives the oven character. That's my excuse, and I'm sticking by it!! LOL

I love, LOVE your favorite quote.

You did good.
