Tara posted this on her blog yesterday, and asked her readers to do the same. I thought it was interesting and a good way to get to know more about each other. So - if you are reading this, I challenge you to fill this out and let us all know more about you!
Accent - I have always thought that I didn't really have an accent. I live in Michigan and people on Television talk like us, however I'm sure we have an accent if you asked people from other areas!
I don't drink - coffee! I have never liked coffee. I've tried to get used to it, but to no avail. I don't like tea either. I drink a lot of water, some diet coke and an occasional glass of wine. I know - boring!
Chore I hate - folding laundry. I don't mind most other things, but for some reason I dislike this.
Pets - We have a cat - "Cleo". Our dog died a few years ago and we have also gone through the goldfish and hamster stage.
Essential electronics - I would have to say the computer. I spend far too much time on it, I'm afraid.
Perfume - I switch between a few - "Pleasures" by Estee Lauder, "White Tea Therapy" by The Healing Garden and "White Musk" bu The Body Shop.
Gold or Silver - Usually silver, but it depends on what I'm wearing.
Insomnia - I have been blessed to never have that problem. Even when I worked the night shift, I was able to sleep during the day.
Job Title - My most important job is wife and Mom, and I try to put that first. I worked part time when my kids were young and am now working 4 days a week. I am a Charge Nurse at a Long Term Care Facility (Nursing Home). I am blessed to work with some great people and really enjoy getting to know our residents and their families.
Most admired trait - It is hard to post an admired trait about yourself! I guess I would say that I am usually a positive and upbeat person. I like to view the glass as half full!
Kids - Laura is 24 and is married to Aaron, Heather is 21 and is in college, Andrew is 19 and is finishing basic training in the army in a few weeks.
Religion - I try not to be "religious". I spent too many years doing that. I am a Christian, trying to live my day to day life as a follower of Christ.
Siblings - I am the oldest of 4. I have a brother Duane, a sister Terri, and a sister Cheri. Just in case you are wondering about the names - Mari, Terri, Cheri? No, my parents weren't trying to rhyme when they named us. It is really Maribeth, Terri and Cheryl.
Time I wake up - usually 5:30 when I am going to work. I do enjoy my days off, when I can sleep in and have a leisurely morning!
Vegetable I hate - I have a few I dislike, but the worst is Brussels sprouts. I don't think I could eat them if you paid me!
Worst habit - I asked Heather for an answer to this. She says it is biting pens. I must admit that my pens often have an unusual appearance at one end, so it must be true. I have a feeling that my sisters and Laura may have more bad habits to add to the list! Bob thinks I am perfect, at least I tell him I am!
My favorite meal - I don't think I have a favorite. If I don't have to cook, it's good!
Now it's your turn. I'll be looking forward to what you all have to say!
Don't forget - Friday is the last day to sign up for the 100th post giveaway below. I'll be choosing a winner sometime Friday afternoon.
