Jumping on the Bandwagon here…
B~Bed Size: Queen
C~Chore You Hate: Cleaning the oven. There’s no easy or comfortable way to bend yourself sideways, stretch over the open door and reach the back corners.
D~Dogs: Yes! Maxwell Noir. Wonderdog Extraordinaire. Then there’s Bob the Cat…
E~Essential Start of Your Day: breakfast, which usually consists of steel cut oats with dried cherries, walnuts, brown sugar and a dash of cinnamon. As of today, I’ve given up coffee. EEEEK!!

M~Mom’s Name: Geneva
N~Nicknames: Angie, Grace Grace? Yes, Grace. Because I’m not.
O~Overnight Hospital Stays: Only one, when Adult Daughter#1 was born, simply because she showed up after dinner and I had to wait until my Doctor made rounds the next morning to get discharged!
P~Pet Peeve: purposefully misspelled words, such as “Kwik”. Grrrr….it annoys me so much that I won’t patronize any establishment with a quirkily spelled word on their sign. Babies out in public with nothing on but a diaper. This list could expand exponentially over the next week. See “E” above.

V~Vegetable you Dislike: None – at least none that I’ve tasted so far.
W~What Makes You Late: See Letter “K” above. Those first two in the list? They don’t subscribe to the brush-your-teeth-shove-on-a-headband-head-out-the-door philosophy of life.
X~X-rays You’ve Had: Not so sure of the total – dental over the years, broken foot once, broken thumb…
