Moment of Zen: A to Z Edition

By Katie, 5:47 am

I know, I know, it’s Father’s Day. I should be posting about dads and stuff. But when I saw this little A to Z questionnaire on Kelly’s blog, I thought it seemed more fun! Like I’m reverting back to middle school when these kinds of quizzes were all the rage. ;-)

A - Age: 26.

B - Bed size: Queen.

C - Chore you hate: DISHES! Ugh.

D - Dad’s Name: Steve

E - Essential start to your day: The very first thing I do upon waking is feed my cats and scoop their litter box. I know, awesome. I guess I want them to be prepared for the very eventful day I’m sure they have ahead of them…

F - Favorite actress and actor: Not sure on actor, but for actress I’ve always liked movies with Kate Winslet.

G - Gold or Silver: Silver. Like my engagement ring.

H - Height: 5’4″

I - Instruments you play(ed): played the piano for many years, the clarinet for a few

J – Job title: Grants Manager, Writer (yep, I’m going ahead and giving myself that title!)

K - Kid(s): Yes, please!

L - Living arrangements: Just built a house! Some photos coming your way this week!

M - Mom’s name: Linda, but Dave’s nickname for her is the Queen, obviously. And my mother-in-law’s name is Lisa.

N - Nicknames: As a kid my nickname was Tater Tot. Also, my mom calls me Pussycat!

O - Overnight hospital stays other than birth: None!

P - Pet Peeves: Chronic lateness, sloppy grammar/punctuation

Q - Quotes you like: “The change I seek begins with me,” and “When you pray, move your feet.”

R - Right or left-handed: Well, it’s complicated. When I was a kid I used to switch hands like it was nothing. Then in second grade my teacher informed me that I wasn’t supposed to do that; I had to pick a hand. Crazy! Being the non-conventional gal that I am, I chose my left. These days I write and eat with my left hand, do everything else with my right.

S - Siblings: Older brother, Matt. He rocks.

T - Time you wake up: Weekdays – 5:45 a.m. Weekends – 7:00 a.m.

V - Vegetable you dislike: Arugula. Too peppery or something.

W - Ways you run late: If I’m late, it’s almost always Dave’s fault. True story. I forgive him because he’s so darn handsome!

X - X-rays you’ve had: Just my teeth.

Y - Yummy food you make: All of this! This week I pulled out an old favorite: guacamole salad.

Z - Zodiac: Dave and I are both rams! (Aries)

What’s your answer for one of the letters?


Are you doing anything special for Father’s Day?

    loved reading this, thanks for sharing! I played the clarinet too. I have to say most surprising is your height, for whatever reason I always picture you as taller!

  8. shelley says:

    i love these quizzes.. and wow that guacamole salad looks amazing

  9. No surprise that we are so similar on a lot of things, huh? ;)

    Chronic lateness drives me crazy! And I hate it because its something I now do with the kids. I try so hard to get our schedules in order too to get places on time but still always about 5 min late. Grrr. LOL

    And you definitely can call yourself a writer!

  10. Kelly says:
