A wee bit about me...

I am going to be a copy-cat lovely "niece" the Flip-Flop Farmgirl has post a blog called "Somethin' More About Me", I'm gonna join in, just like my friend Lisa did. :)

So, here ya' go...

Age: I am 43.  Yup... you heard right.  43.  It's not at all what I thought it would be when I was 20. :)

Bed size:  KING!  Because we are both little people, and I am a bed-hog.... I admit it.

Chore you hate:  I really enjoy my household chores.  But I DISLIKE with a PASSION...picking up dog poop.  But it has to be done.  Ewwww. 

Dogs: As you can imagine, I have a dog (I do not go around picking up other peoples dogs poop).  She is a boxer, and she is perfect.  More than perfect.  I could never have a dog like her again, I just know it.  She is loved and adored by even the most "un-doggish" type of people.  She is spoiled, and pretty, and loves to cuddle and kiss.... and eat chicken.  And she is adorable...absolutely the cutest dog ever...

Ok, maybe that wasn't the best example of her cuteness... :) ... how about this?

Essential start of your day: Waking up.  That is the perfect way to start my day. :)  Preparing my precious husband for his day of work...making his smoothie, and packing his lunch...making sure he's got all his parts and pieces together...doing my silly unique wave from the front door...then coffee... yum.

Favorite color: Oh I love thee!  I love's so pretty, and happy, and dainty, and springish, and flowery and lovely, and sweet, and kind and full of laughter and cuteness.  Pink. :)

Gold or silver: Silver

Height: 5'5"

Instruments I play (or have played): Voice?
Job TitleHome Enhancement Specialist. 

I am employed by the King, along with a small, but elite, group of women. 
We are in constant training, as our dangerous and adventurous jobs keep us always on the alert.  From one day to the next, nothing stays the same.  Some in this highly skilled job have trainees living in their home, and this creates a higher level of challenge within the job.  Others have sent their trainees out into the "field" and are now manning the homefront as an assistant to Head of the Household.
That's all I can tell might know too much.  It's really something you have to apply for and experience yourself to fully understand.

Kids:  I have one smart, good-lookin', Air Force son.  I love him.  I miss him, but that's part of being a Mom...and I don't like that part.  I like the part where he calls me and says he misses me.  I like the part where he says he misses my cooking.  It makes me feel loved.  I want him to come home...and bring 5 grandkids with him.  But I want him to get married first...just to keep things on the up n' up. :)

Flattering, huh?

Much better...

So cool...and cute. :)

Happy 1st Birthday!  Who's that young chick? Oh!  That's ME!  Wow...I was young once.

Awe..... :)  I think we still have that flag that he's signing... awe....


Oh!  That's my precious little lumpy love...sweet.  Oh, how i miss kissing that face!

All wrapped up in one big boy.

Live: of sunshine...and humidity...and mosquitos.  :)  Sure is pretty here!

Mom's name: Dorothy, Dottie, Dot, Mom, Grams, Gramma, Grama Dot, Dot-Dot... :)
Nickname: The first nickname I had was Butterball...yup.  That's what my Dad called me when I was a baby...said I looked like a Butterball Turkey...nice. :)   Then he started to call me Kathaleenie-bidgabageenie! :)  I love that name. :)  Makes me smile.  Now it's just Kath.  Which is strictly reserved for Dad, and my oldest 4 siblings.... and Jody...but that's another story.
Pet peeve:  When people let you talk about something and then they aren't even listening and you just wish they would have told you they weren't gonna listen so that you wouldn't have wasted your breath.  :)
Quote from a movie:  Hmmm, I always liked the part in Princess Bride where the Farmboy says "As you wish"...which really meant "I love you"...sigh.  Sweet. :) 
Right or left-handed: Right

Siblings:  Plenty.  :)  I have 3 older sisters and 2 older brothers.  My oldest brother is 10 years older than me.  It goes: Guy, Debbie, Becky, Ricky, Tina, Kathy - I get "baby" status. :)

Time you wake up: 5:15...sometimes 5:10.  On "days off" later, depending on when we went to bed.
Underwear: Hmmmm, Yes.  Nun-Yuns.... (that is code for none of your business).
Vegetables you dislike:  Okra.  Ewwww.
What makes you run late: Me.  I am always "ready" at the right time.  THEN, I have to coax the dog to go potty, make sure she has water and something to eat.  Oh!  Did I grab a water bottle?  Gotta have water wherever I go.  Should I grab a snack?  Maybe almonds, I might get lightheaded if I don't eat on time.  Was I supposed to bring anything?  Let me get a sweater in case it's cold.  Oh, let me grab a pony tail holder, just in case it's hot... you know...  That stuff.
X-rays you've had done:  Dental, knee.

Yummy food you make: Yes.  :)  LOL...everything on my cooking blog is yummy.  At least it is to me and those who have lived under the same roof as me while I've been a H.E.S.... so pop over HERE and are a few...

Chocolate Molten Lava Cakes
King Ranch Chicken
Taco Rolls
Roasted Garlic Potato Broccoli Soup
Jalapeno Chicken

Zoo animal: LION!  Gorgeous...powerful....incredible.
