26 Things You Never Cared To Know About Me

Melie shared her 26 things today, and since it's a snow day here and the kids are still asleep (but will be home all day) I thought I would take my last precious minutes alone to share my 26 things.

26 things about me in alphabetical order:
Age: 43 - It IS going to be my year!! WOOT!
Bed size: King. I scoot way down though, so my feet can hang off the bottom. They can't be contained.
Chore you hate: All of them. That word makes me mad.
Dogs: I love dogs. I am allergic to dogs. I have one beautiful furry husky named Ki.
Essential start to your day: A cuppa coffee. A thanks to God for all that is to come my way.
Favorite color: Brick Red. Sunflower Yellow.
Gold or Silver: Silver.
Height: 5’8"
Instruments you play: I can hum (but not very well).
Job title: Mom. and Small Business Owner - in the medical business field.
Kids: Sweet boy, Jack is 8 and Cheeky Monkey, Mai is 6.
Live: Portland, OR.
Mom’s name: Mom.
Nicknames: Jules.
Overnight hospital stays: Most recently with my kids - both C sections.
Pet peeve: People who cut in during traffic when I've placed the exact amount of safety feet between myself and the car ahead of me.
Quote from a movie: I can barely remember the name or plot of the movie I've watched the night before...and you want an actual QUOTE??
Right- or left-handed: Right. This was a really boring question.
Siblings: 1 cool younger brother who reminded me this week that until Sept, I am three years older than him.
Time you wake up: 6am on school days - so I have time to wake up with coffee and prayer before the kiddos have to get up. 6am on weekends because my body is now trained to wake up at 6am and because of this silly 1/2 IM stuff, I need to be up, coffeed, bathroomed, and to some far off meeting place to train with the team :-)
Underwear: I think you all now know the answer to that.
Vegetables you dislike: Beets, lima beans, cooked spinach.
What makes you run late: Dawdling.
X-Rays you’ve had: Lots of ultrasounds of the wee ones ~ FUN!
Yummy food you make: Sloppy Burritos.
Zoo favorite animal: Monkeys. They do the funniest and rudest and most embarrassing things - probably the same things monkeys would see us doing if our homes had glass walls.

I love this ABC game...fun to get to know you better. You are taller than I thought...I wonder why I thought you were shorter?

Julie said...

In your mind, I slouch...
;-)

racing dawn said...

So fun! Love tidbits of info! :)

And I'll have to email you about my Paleo findings! :)

**And I totally don't believe you're 43...

Small Town Runner said...

What a fun list!
I don't know the difference between a burrito and a sloppy burrito, though! =D

Julie said...

Dawn - I'll await your email!

Raina - I love when the salsa and the guac and the sour cream are just overflowing everywhere. YUM!!

Candice @ I Have Run said...

This is great. Some really fun questions. And yay for snow =)

greekmelie said...

I loved your tidbits! Excuse my ignorance, but what are sloppy burritos?

Abby @ Have Dental Floss, Will Travel said...

I know orangutans aren't quite monkeys, but Brent and I spent a solid half hour watching a mother and baby orangutan at the New Orleans zoo over winter break. They were totally mesmerizing!

Stephanie said...

Brick red and sunflower yellow are my faves too. :)

Julie said...

Melie - SLOPPY burittos are just REALLY EXTRA GOOEY AND SLOPPY. YUM!

Stephanie - Really?? That's funny!

Rose said...

The handed question is boring, unless the answer is "lefty." Then I'm all "Oh, huh, you guys still exist?"

Julie said...

Rose, my son's a lefty...I never really thought about it before but I wonder why there are so few? You would think it would be an evenly distributed trait...

Shellyrm ~ just a country runner said...

I love this post. So great to "know" more about eachother.

I love that you really dislike the H word. Because I really dislike it too! (mean angry unneeded word. Seriously, I have never felt that word toward anyone or thing.)

Doubting your age! You have a very young face.

Kate said...

Fun list! I've really enjoyed reading all the answers to these that I've seen. I agree that the right/left hand question is boring.

Julie said...

Guess I should have read this post before the snow post.

I'm a Jules too. I really don't know of many other Julie's.

So I gotta ask did the use to sing the song that went "julie, julie, julie do you love me?" to you when you were a kid?

Julie said...

Julie~ someone used to sing that to me...now I'm going to have to wrack my brain to remember who it was. Maybe Mom will chip in on this one - I bet she remembers....

Julie said...

Mom?? Was it Pete that used to croon to me?

Julie Julie Julie do you love me? Julie Julie Julie do you care?

Julie said...

LOL! Sorry didn't mean to drive you mad with the question. :) Many of my realatives sang it to me when I was young and it still comes up once in a while.

Jen said...

Loved all your answers! They were really fun! I love how you start your day. And your underwear question!

Lisa said...

The elephants are my favorite in the zoo. Monkeys are a close second though.

Jim ... 50after40 said...

Amen to "P"!

Laurie said...

Yeah I am really not buying that you are 43 -- you look younger tham I am (I am 33) in your pictures!

Amanda@runninghood said...

43? Is that a typo? I totally thought you look like you're more like 33...again, is that a typo?

I don't like lima beans either. yuck! I do like cooked spinach if is in done right. Oh, how funny, I just noticed the comment above mine and it says the same thing about your age! I promise I didn't not see Laurie's comment before I wrote that.

Julie said...

You girls are awesome about my age!! ...but now I'm starting to get a complex that my age is actually now in the "old" category ;-)
