ABC’s of Me

By Ruth on October 9, 2010 in Uncategorized

Yes, I am stealing this from my friend over at Finding My Life in Faith.  But she said I could!

A:  Age 36

B: Bed Size Queen

C: Chore you hate–putting away laundry; I never mind doing it, but I hate putting it away!

D: Dog’s Name–Sandy

E: Essential Start to your day–coffee, 2 cups with cream and splenda; computer!

F: Favorite  color–blue (royal blue or sky blue are my very favorites)

G: Gold  or Silver–silver!!

H: Height–5’5″

I:  instruments you play–my primary instrument is my voice; I play piano fairly well (seven and a half years of lessons); cello, flute, clarinet, trumpet, trombone, snare drum–learned to play them in college for my music training

J: Job  Title–Substitute Teacher  (or “guest” teacher)

K: Kids–Martha (almost 7 and a half!)

N: Nicknames–Rufus, Ruthie Doll, Babe Ruth, Ruthie

O: Overnight hospital stay other than birth–I have only spent a few hours in a hospital other than my birth.  My daughter was born at home.  A couple weeks before she was born, I was in the hospital for a few hours while they tried to figure out why my blood pressure was so high.

P:  Pet Peeve–I can’t stand it when people say one thing and do another.  Hypocrisy bothers me!

Y:  Yummy food you make–I am known for making very good bread, and my German Stollen is requested at Christmastime.
