The ABCs of Me

Ok, A :-), I accept the challenge! She posted this on her blog so I will give it a go.

A - Age. Not telling, but old enough to have white hair but too young to care. Means what, I don't know, but it rhymes.
B - Biggest Fear. Spider webs. Closest explanation is one I got from my mother, when I was an infant she found me tangled in the threads of an unraveled silk ribbon from a blanket. I was "trapped" by fine silk threads, and screaming.
C - Current Time. 10:14 am
D - Drink you last had. Coffee. I love coffee in the morning but none in the afternoon as it keeps me awake until 3 am.
E - Easiest person to talk to. My youngest daughter. We have been "besties" for years.
F - Favorite Song. It depends on my mood and what I'm listening to at the time. I really love, "Try" by Pink.

 First time I heard it my hubby was driving me around Prishtina at night. The windows were rolled down and the breeze was warm with a million stars in the sky. We went for coffee at Germia Park. We did that often, and heard that song often. My hubby loves it, too. Strong memories of one of the best times of my life.
G - Grossest Memory. I must block them out.
H - Hometown. I was born in Lawrence, Massachusetts but my parents moved to California when I was 2. I spent 41 years in the Midwest and moved back to California.
I - In Love With. My Husband. People often think he's my boyfriend, maybe because we don't act like old bored married people. I see them at work often, the wife barking orders at the husband, and he obeys like a puppy dog.
J - Jealous Of. My husband. I guard my love for him jealously.
K - Killed Someone. No.
L - Longest Relationship. My first husband and father of my children, one day short of 41 years. I spent our anniversary at the funeral home.
M - Middle Name. Vanessa.
N - Number of Siblings. 0...I'm an only child. My dad was an only child. My mom had 2 brothers. When my mom was lost in her earlier days because of Alzheimer's, she told me there was another baby. but it died.
O - One Wish. I get only one? To find myself...the artist I always tried to be, wanted to be. I am inspired here, but distressed because of my hubby's persistent sinus problems. There is no mold in this house whatsoever, but he still suffers. It's worse when it rains. I have no idea why. He says he smells mold outside. I smell pine trees. It's all fresh air here. He's a mess. Maybe my One Wish is my husband's health. I've told him we could move, but it would mean him finding another job, and he says he doesn't want to do that. Seeing a specialist means driving to Eureka. There are no specialists here.
P - Person You Last Called. My voicemail.
Q - Question You're Always Asked. What brought me to Crescent City. My daughter offered us an escape from stinky Northwest Indiana where we lived next to the ever roaring Expressway with its diesel smoke and endless rumble from semi trucks in a neighborhood that was quickly declining and house values plummeting to insane lows.
R - Reason to Live. Because I was given life. I must be here for a reason....
S - Song You Last Sang. "Try" by Pink, since I was listening to it earlier (see letter "F")
T - Time you woke up. 7 am
U - Underwear color. Boring white at the moment.
V - Vacation Destination. I would love to see Sedona Arizona. I have a cousin there. I would love to go back to Kosovo and spend more wonderful mornings and evenings in coffee shops, buying Albanian Pita at bakeries and just walking around enjoying life there.
W - Worst Habit. I have a worst one? Biting my hangnails maybe.
X - X-Rays you've had. Besides teeth....chest, breast, knee, abdomen.
Y - Your favorite food. Yogurt
Z - Zodiac Sign. Cancer. It's said the best love match in all Astrology is Cancer and Scorpio. My hubby is Scorpio. 'Nuff said.
