Haven’t done one in awhile…
1. Pretend it’s Monday morning–take us through a day in the life of you.
Alarm goes off at 6:30, I get out of bed, pee, and take the dog outside to do her business. Said dog thinks this is also an excursion to smell every blade of grass in the yard, so “business” ends up taking 10 minutes, and I just spend that time standing in the back yard, looking out over the quiet fields our yard backs up to. Once pup is satisfied, in the house we go, where I pack my lunch and clean up anything laying around the living room (we keep a blended-in decorative basket under one end table and toss all remotes, magazines, etc in there in the morning so pup doesn’t get any chewing ideas during the day). I hop in the shower, get out, lotion/spf myself, brush my teeth, and put on half my clothes. I’m bizarre. I’m put on my underclothes (hehe I said underclothes) and my pants for work. Then I blow dry my hair, and THEN I put my shirt/shoes/jewelry on. I grab my bags, and put them in the car, head back in, kiss hubs (who is still sleeping) and head to work. I work 8-4:30 with ½ hour for lunch, normally taken at noon so I can eat with my co-workers (it’s a small office, and co-mingled lunch is a social must on most days). I eat breakfast at my desk, as well as a pre-gym snack about 3:00-3:30. At 4:30, I drive to the gym (2 blocks from work) and work out until 6:00 or so. I head home, have a recovery snack, and then walk the dog for ½ hour. I come home, and hubs is usually home from the gym by now (~6:45 or 7:00). Monday, hubs always cooks. So while he’s making dinner, I prep my food for the following day, let the dog out to play with the neighbor dog, get my clothes and gym clothes ready for the next day. We eat dinner, I do dishes, then sit down to read blogs, email, check facebook, or blog myself. Bedtime rolls around at 10:30 and then we do it all over again. 🙂
2. What’s your favorite reality tv show?
I honestly watch VERY little television, and immensely dislike reality TV. So none?
3. What motto do you live by?
I don’t live by a motto. Maybe I should. hah
4. If you knew could you try anything and not fail, what dream would you attempt?
I’d open a book/food type store. You can lounge around like it’s a huge comfy library, and do whatever you want, but there’s also a delicious menu available as well. Limited items (because I’d want to cook them and focus on things) but it would be delicious.
I’d start a horse training business. I do miss horses a lot.
5. What was your first job?
First summer job was stable manager for a horse training facility. The end result was me in a cast for 6 weeks, because a horse tore all the tendons in 3 of my fingers on my left hand. Nice, eh? All for $7/hour 🙂
My first “real life” job was a secretary/electrical estimator for an electrical contracting company. I worked for Satan. No boss will ever be worse than that man. But my co-workers were awesome and sympathetic. We banded together. 🙂
6. What is your current job?
I am a GIS & Information Systems Administrator (ever notice how they give you an important title, but no money? That’s me.) I run online tracking systems for homeless clients, I do digital mapping, and data analysis – all for a local government level social service agency. I love it because I do something different every day. It’s never boring!
7. What would you call yourself if you could choose your own name (and you cannot pick the one you already have)?
At this point in my life I’m pretty content with my name – Kelly. I always wanted to spell it Kelle, though. Oh well.
At one point in early teenagedom I wanted to be called Maeve. Is that weird?
8. What musical instruments can you play?
BAHAHAHAHAH……I can’t read any music, let alone play. I’m bad at the recorder, for pete’s sake.
9. Is it easier to forgive or forget?
Forgive. Forgetting is hard.
10. What is one food you’d never want to taste again?
Olives, okra, mushrooms, spam, …..I could go on and on.
