ABCs of Me

ABCs of Me is something I have used in the classroom for students to get to know each other at the beginning of the year.  I don't give them a topic for each letter, but have them come up with it on their own. It is a great way to learn about each other. Now I get a chance to do it too!
 I have learned a lot about other bloggers  by reading their ABCs so I thought I would share something about me with you.

(A) Age: 47  Hard to remember cause I feel don't feel like I'm this old.  This is my mother's age, not mine.
(B) Bed Size:  King
(C) Chore You Hate: Putting away the clean laundry. I will wash, dry and fold all day, but I don't like putting it away. 
(D) Dogs? Grew up with dogs and I do like them, but don't want the responsibility of taking care of one right now. I have 3 cats who entertain me.
(E) Essential Start Your Day Item: Allergy pill - those stinkin' cats and Florida's pollen make it a necessity.
(F) Favorite Color: green - was I fated for that with the name Kelley?
(G) Gold or Silver? Silver
(H) Height: 5'6"  Shortest one in my family
(I) Instruments You Play: Started with piano lessons in elementary school, but my teacher asked me to stop because I never practiced. So I guess I was fired.  Regret that I didn't stick with it, but sports were my favorite pastime.
(J) Job Title: Elementary Literacy Curriculum Specialist 
(K) Kids: 3 - 2 girls, 1 boy  Ages 23, 21, 19
(L) Live: Orlando, FL
(M) Mom's Name: Geraldine (Geri)  All her siblings had old fashioned names too.
(N) Nicknames: Kelpit, Worm
(O) Overnight Hospital Stays? One week after birth of 3rd child for blood clot in my leg. Not fun with a newborn baby
(P) Pet Peeve: People who use their hazard lights while driving in the rain!!  All those flashing lights just make it harder to see the road.
(Q) Quote from a Movie: "That's cool, baby..You know how it is...rockin' and rollin' and what not." Danny Zuko from Grease.  I say some form of this to my kids when they ask me how I'm doing.
(R) Right or Left Handed? Right.
(S) Siblings: Three older brothers, one younger sister.  Love being in a big family!!
(T) Time You Wake Up? 5:15am during the week, to get in a workout before work.
(U) Underwear: I believe in wearing it.
(V) Vegetable You Dislike: olives - are they a vegetable?
(W) What Makes You Run Late: I don't run late.  I like to be early.
(X) X-Rays You've Had Done: teeth, that's all
(Y) Yummy Food You Make: I like baked goods, so I make a lot of those.  Some of my favorites are Whatever Bars, Chocolate Caramel Coconut Cupcake, Banana Cake and Chubby Hubby Ice Cream
(Z) Zoo, Favorite Animal: Zoos make me sad for the animals, so I don't really like to go. 

What's a pet peeve of yours?

Would you like to win a Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer?  She's Becoming Doughmesstic is giving one away.  Mention that I sent you and we can both win one!!  


  1. I hate putting my laundry away and when people have their flashers on in the rain-- we must be related ;)
    And come on, I'm still 21...not 22

  2. I totally enjoyed reading this....very entertaining:) Funny about the underwear!

  3. drooling over your baked goods!

  4. Totally agree with you on the laundry! I hate it, too!

  5. I hated practicing when I took piano lessons, but once I quit taking them due to being so busy with school things, I start practicing all the time and really loved it!

    My big pet peeves today are noises. I almost made a blog post of all the noises that bug me. Ugh - don't get me started!!


What's on your mind?
