MIGHTY MOM tagged me for this meme. As far as I know it doesn't have a name.
ACCENT - I'se born and raised in Arkinsaw. Now wadda you thank?
I DON'T DRINK - Alcohol. Partly religious convictions, but mostly because my Daddy was an alcoholic and it turned me completely against it. And most of it tastes to me like cough medicine anyway.
CHORE I HATE - Washing dishes. I'd rather clean the toilet or almost any other chore.
PETS - Candy - my 14 year old Siamese mix kitty (more mix than Siamese), Dolly - my 2 year old, 22 lb. tortoise shell kitty, and Larry and Moe - the goldfish. Curly went belly-up right after the trio came to live with me, breaking up their comedy act. And since they all look alike, I'm just guessing that it was Curly that went to that great goldfish bowl in the sky. Also, Ed - the oldest living zebra finch in captivity, or so it seems.
ESSENTIAL ELECTRONICS - My computer, of course, my cell phone and my digital camera.
PERFUME - I switch between Lovely by Sara Jessica Parker, Romance and Pure Turquoise by Ralph Lauren, Celine Dion original, and Avon's Haiku and Imari.
GOLD or SILVER - Jewelry? I like both, so whatever you're tired of wearing feel free to send it to me. ;-)
INSOMNIA - Not very often at all. But - I suffer from self-induced insomnia because I stay up too late on the computer and don't go to bed when I should.
JOB TITLE - Hmm....wife, Mama, Grandma, daughter, sister, aunt, and FRIEND.
MOST ADMIRED TRAIT - Gee, I don't know....Seriously. Maybe my dependability?
KIDS - One almost 20 year old daughter, Jessica, and my son in love, Jason.
PHOBIA - Fear of falling through the cracks in wooden bridges. That's about the only one I can think of. I won't fly but it's truly not a phobia about flying. I'm allergic to those unscheduled sudden stops.
RELIGION - Southern Baptist for 35 years - and counting.
SIBLINGS - In order from oldest to youngest: Sue - 57, Ducky - 55, DONNA - 53, me - almost 44, and Cecil - 42. Mama and Daddy had 5 girls, no boys.
TIME I WAKE UP - If it's a babysitting-Emmy-day, anywhere from 6 am to 7:30 am, according to when Jessica gets up and around. Any other day, depends on when I go to bed. I'm an inveterate night owl and my bedtime and wake up times vary accordingly.
UNUSUAL TALENT/SKILL - Well, I don't know that it's a talent or a skill, but it's definitely unusual, I think: I can cluck like a chicken and bark like a dog, although not at the same time. That would be an unusual talent/skill. It would be tragic if I ever started chasing myself.
VEGETABLE - Okaaaaay.....hate? Love? I don't like eggplant. I can eat it, but I don't like it much. I've never just thought, "Boy, a big platter of eggplant sure would hit the spot right about now!"
WORST HABIT - I have to confess - I'm a know-it-all. But I only say that because it's so true. ;-) Otherwise, if you have an opinion about my worst habit, don't tell me because another habit I have is gossiping and I'll talk about you for slamming me. ;-)
X-RAYS - Oh, yeah. Dental, of course. Broken ankle about 18 years ago. Knees to feet for arthritis diagnosis and steroid shots in my knees. Head for sinuses and another time to rule out a brain tumor. They ruled out the brain instead. Mammograms and various and sundry others.
MY FAVORITE MEAL - Now this is a hard one. It depends on when you ask me, honestly. Fried catfish and shrimp with all the trimmings and plain cheesecake for dessert sounds really good right now. Diet Coke with the meal and strong black coffee with the cheesecake.
I'm going to tag a few people to do this meme. If you want to do this one, feel free to snag it for yourself. And if you're like me and feel like you're chasing your tail at times, feel free NOT to do this. Tag somebody else or not, your choice.
Donna, my sister.
Cecil, also my sister.
Monday and Tuesday that I want to share.
T*MMY, remember those pink tennis shoes
you sent for Emmy a while back? Well, she can
finally wear them and they are so cute on her!
It'll still be a while before she can wear the shirt.This one is for GREENEYES and all of you
who like Emmy sugar and cuddles.
The next several pictures were taken by
Cecil as Sue was holding Emmy and I
was making Emmy laugh and smile.I think that's gonna do it for the moment.
I have to get up early with Emmy
tomorrow and I need my sleep.
Y'all have a great Wednesday, y'hear?
