ABC List. You guessed it. I've been tagged again.

Okay, is it just me, or is Christmas coming up so fast????

I've only recieved 3 cards so far, and I still haven't sent mine out. I'm not even close to being done shopping, and my kids keep changing their list to santa at the last minute. I feel like I just got my decorations out. Ugh! Forget cookies or wrapping to Christmas music and enjoying it. I have a feeling it will all be accomplished in a blur.

No news on the agent front, other than her brother broke his neck in two places. Poor woman, yet she still updates me constantly. She rocks. And given the time of year, I really don't expect to hear anything until after the holidays, though 4 out of 6 did touch base to say they recieved my stuff. Very cool.

So I'm finally going to do my ABC list that I was tagged for by Drew. And my Christmas gift to all of you in blog land is to NOT tag anyone else. Poor Barbie W. and Jen T would probably kill me anyway.

A - Available or Single? No. Been married for almost 18 years.
B - Best friend? Carolyn Chamberlain since we were 17.
C - Cake or Pie? Both....that's my problem;))
D - Drink of choice? Hmmm, one cup coffee in am, one diet pepsi when I write, and one glass of wine when I crash in the evening (sometimes a cup of green tea instead).
E - Essential item you use every day? My Laptop. Can't live without it.
F - What do you do for fun? I made up this category since no one seemed to have it, now I wish I hadn't. What DO I do for fun? Good question. We play cards a lot with my sister and her husband, and we go downtown once in a while. I really like the Irish pub on the square. We also love to travel. Been to Acapulco, Hawaii twice, Alaska, a caribbean cruise, and Puerto Rico is next. Also love to golf and ski but haven't done either in a long time.
G - Gummy bears or worms? Neither. Yuck.
H - Hometown? Central New York. I was an airforce brat but I grew up about an hour from where I live now.
I - Indulgance? A long hot bubblebath in my huge tub with jets (favorite part of my new house) with a glass of wine and a good book.
J - January or February? February because it's the kids winter break and we will go away somewhere. This year it's Disney!!!!
K - Kids and Names? Well, I have a 12 year old boy, a 9 1/2 year old boy, an 8 year old boy, and a 4 year old daughter. I already got in trouble once for posting a picture of my daughter, so I'd better not give their names;)))
L - Life is incomplete without? My family. Sounds cliche, but so true. As crazy as my life is, I can't imagine it any other way. I really am doing exactly what I want - staying home with my kids and writing books. How many people can honestly say they love their job?
M - Marriage date? July 22, 1989
N - Number of Siblings? Two living. I had an older brother who died of SIDS at 7 weeks old. I still have an older sister by 2 1/2 years, and a younger brother by 2 years, so I'm smack dab in the middle, and practically perfect in every way;)))
O - Oranges or Apples? A seedless, juicy naval orange.
P - Phobia / Fears? Well, we already talked about mice (big shudder here). The only other thing would be vampire movies. I hate scary movies, but I still can't watch Salems Lot to this day.
Q - Favorite Quote? I'm not a quote person. Never got into collecting them or repeating them. Maybe it's the writer in me. I'm too busy making up my own sayings or thinking up my next punchline;))
R - Reason to smile? I have an agent!!!! oh, and my family of course (hug, hug, kiss, kiss)
S - Season? Strange to say, but all. I love living where we have all 4 seasons. Fall is the prettiest, but I love to snow ski and go snowmobiling and sledding and ice skating in winter, and then swimming, water skiing, sun bathing in the summer. Spring is probably my least favorite.
T - Tag 3 people? nobody, and nobody, oh and then there's, well, nobody!! Merry Christmas everyone.
U - Unkown fact about me? I like to talk. (Snort!) Bet you couldn't guess that;)) I don't think there's anything I haven't told you all. I'm pretty much an open book.
V - Vegetable you don't like? Cream corn and cooked spinach. Double yuck!!
W - Worst habit? Interrupting other people. I love to talk, can't help it, and it's just so hard not to jump in when a thought pops into my mind. Yet I hate it when other people do that to me, so I'm working on it.
X - Xrays you've had? You're kidding, right? Who keeps track of these things? Better yet, who came up with these questions?? No clue.
Y - Your favorite food? Sweets. I could skip meals all day and just eat dessert!! That is sooo my problem!!!
Z - Zodiac sign? Taurus. So's my husband. It's a wonder we've been together so long, we're both that stubborn. Gee, my mom's a taurus too, no wonder we both fight to get the last word in;)) Love you mom! Snicker. I love doing that to her.

Okay, I'm sure all your eyes are blurred after that post, so I'm off to put another dent in all the Christmas chores. Yes, folks, let's face it. Christmas has most definitely become a chore.

Karitown out!!

And here's to good news from you agent ASAP :)

I wouldn't kill you, just blog about that little toy you knew nothing about, much less seen.

And i still haven't gotten to the 6 weird things about me yet. But I don't think I can do that one, I would embarrass myself.

Drew Blackstone said...

Disney!?! Land or World. Can I come too? :)

I have to wait till July :( I'm chaperoning my youth group trip to their national conference. Orlando in July? Are these people insane? Help me, I'm melting....

OK, kinda go off track there. Have fun.

Clowns like these are why I have word verification on my blog.

So have you had any x-rays? I had an x-ray on my arm, and some on my chest. They give me the dang creeps. CREEPS, I tell you!

Swishy said...

I'm so jealous you get to go away! I wanna go away!

I have to do this tag this weekend ... I'm behind!

Frannie Farmer said...

No cards here either. No presents yet. Got the tree up, it has lights but no decorations. All of my Christmas stuff is MIA this year, not sure what Mr. Farmer did with them ....
I am soo with you on W! I am terrible about that and have to really concentrate on not interrupting. The funny thing is that I used to do training on how to listen effectively! I guess I lost the knack when I started staying home w/toddlers.

Karitown said...

Drew, not sure how to set up word verification on my blog. But after this, I think I need it. And it's Disney land we're going to.

Dorky, I have had my hand xrayed, but it wasn't broken. And I've had xrays for heartburn, but no ulcer, just reflux. My teeth and baby stuff, do they count?

Frannie, half my stuff was MIA also. What is it with the DH?

Roger re the Xmas chores...still in front of the 8 ball so farrr..hold my breath with sick kids at home...

I have a habit of interrupting people too. I think it has to do with growing up in a house were we all talked and all talked at the same time. The amazing thing is we all understood each other... Cool list!

Manic Mom said...

What's with all the tags flying around in Blog Land these days!?!? LOL.

Sounds like you're as much a dessert freak as me! This is the perfect season for us!

I am all about the bubble bath and wine...really could there be anything more devine?

I didn't have a favorite quote until I read one by John Lennon last week -- "When I was about twelve, I used to think I must be a genius, but nobody's noticed."


...Does anyone like creamed corn?

Manic Mom said...

you must be busy shopping.

Or signing book contracts perhaps?!?!?!?!
