Carmen from A-Z

This has been floating around a few blogs and I thought it would be fun to join in! But I'm gonna do it Carmen style!

A. Age: 34  That is a pic of  me at 23... Oh 23... how I miss you! LOL!

B. Bed: King-sized, covered in a cat hair covered quilt! HA!

C. Chore you hate: Cleaning the shower! Why don't those scrubbing bubbles work like they do on the commercial? Come on! False advertizing I tell you! (And why the hello did someone tattoo that lying little scrubbing bubbles man on their leg?)

D. Dog: Nope... CATS! 14 of them! But I ♥ me some doggie love too! Some day when we don't have so many cats and I'm not working a full time job I would love to have the time for a dog again!

E. Essential start to your day: Coffee and a kiss from Mr. Primcat.

F. Favorite Color: Red, White, Blue, Black, Mustard. Any prim shade!

G. Gold or Silver: Gold.

H. Height: 5’3" and shrinking!

I. Instruments you play: A blade of Grass. I can make it whistle between my thumbs. Talented, no?  LOL!

J. Job Title: Cat mom, Wife, Daughter, Blogger, Decorator, Organizer, Office worker (blah on that last one!)

K. Kids: 14 cats!

L. Live in: Ohio, USA

M. Make of Car: 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The year matters! This was the last year they made the boxy one and that's what I wanted. It's paid off and I will drive it till it dies.

N. Nicknames: Car, Carmie, Kat, Crazy Cat Lady. Well duh!

O. Overnight Hospital Stays: More than I’d like to have had. I have Crohn's disease and it’s landed me in there a few times.

P. Pet Peeves: Bloggers leaving old links on their sidebars. This makes me crazy! LOL! I don't know why, it just does! Please people... for my sanity... get rid of the old links! Please take the months old giveaways off before I go crazy!!!  LOL!

Q. Quote from a movie: ET phone home. (Who knows why THAT is what came to mind?)

R. Right or Left Handed: Right

S. Siblings: I am an only child that was never an only child. My mom was a foster mom and I've had far to many sisters to count. Many of whom are still a part of my life. :)

T. T.V. Shows: Lots.

U. Underwear: Comfortable. Cotton. ;) Yep. I totally just told you about my undies!

V. Vegetable You Hate: Peas

W. What makes you run late: Not much. Lateness annoys me to no end. Maybe I should put that as my pet peeve.

X. X-Rays: Lots. And all forms of them from my Crohns disease.

Y. Yummy Food That You Make: Baked Chicken Monterey. Mmmmmmm.

Z. Zoo Animal: Anything kitty like! Lions Tigers, Servals... Here kitteh kitteh!




Hope you decide to play along too!

Until next time…

Carmen and the Primcats

You can add the nickname pumpkin hoarder to your list. It's fun to learn a little more about the people you blog with. I taught my kids how to use a blade of Crab Grass to make a whistle this summer. They thought I was so cool. An easy thing to do since they are only 7,6,and 2. Oh, you are only 1 year older than me. -Steph-

Carmen C. said...

I have just learned SO much about you! I am an only child too and my mom on occasion calls me "Carmie", LOL, it's a curse! I just thank God every day I was a girl because she was going to name me ELVIS if I was a boy, Ewwwwwwww, can you even imagine?????? Fun game, thanks for sharing!!!

Carmen we have so much in common. I love cats although I only have 3 my stepmother, who works at a cat rescue has had up to 26 at a time. I hate people who do not update their blogs, I treat my blog like my house and keep it clean. Hate lateness. Cotton undies oops! did I just tell everyone what I wear. Lots of t.v. shows. I could go on. NIce to know we have so much in common. I also love prim.

Have a lovely weekend,

Rachel said...

Cute post and interesting too! I have not had a chance to swing by the post office to mail out your package of cobb litter yet. Between car issues and life in general issues, this past week has been crazy for me! I apologize for the delay and promise I will get it out to you this week. Thanks!

Love your A to Z's. Nice to get to know a fellow blogger. I have so many pet peeves that my A to Z's would cover all of the alphabet and then some. Thanks for sharing.
Country at heart

Hi, Carmen, I've never seen this before. You did a great job coming up with quirky fun things for every letter.
Thanks for the fun post.
Warm Regards,

I work with a lady who has Crohns and it sounds horrible. I really feel for you.

I agree with you about the lateness thing. There is nothing that annoys me more than lateness. Sadly I married someone who is on time for work(they get a bonus for being on time) but cannot manage to be on time for much else....argh!!!

And why would anyone in their right mind get those leg tattoos?? Are they paid to advertise :)

Theresa said...

OH had to add... that blog link thing is maddening!! I swear I will stop looking at blogs like that just cuz it is so flippin annoying. Okay, you sound a lot like me.

Carmen...loved learning more about you from A to Z. I knew that I was old enough to be your oldest daugther is about to turn 31 in 3 months.
My girls love kitties as much as you do...and my MIL has 8 cats too. They live in the country and only had 2 cats, but someone dumped 6 she decided to adopt all of them. She is a wonderful cat mom just like you!

Hi Carmen,
What a fun way to answer!!!

Carol said...

Yep, my hubby was just complaining about those scrubbing bubbles the other night. Yep, you still have to scrub! Hmmm, I used to wear cotton undies, now it support panties... lol!
