More About Me

I stole this from Julie. I have shared some random facts and things in the past but they never had a label so I just went back and found a few if you are interested.

Four Names People Call Me Other Than My Name:
  1. Goosey
  2. Mommy
  3. Mama
  4. Mom 
(yes I had to reach far to all the things Ella calls me since I don't have nicknames)

Four Jobs I've Had:
  1. Waitress at Pizza Hut
  2. Banquet Server and Hostess at Chesterfield's
  3. Janitor for Norwin School District in the Summer
  4. Janitor for RPI (work study)
 Four Movies I've Watched More Than Once:
  1. Dirty Dancing
  2. Peyton Place
  3. Back to the Future
  4. Harry Potter 2 (I didn't even want to watch that one once)
 Four Books I Recommend:

  1. Run! by Dean Karnazes
  2. 50/50 by Dean Karnazes
  3. Ultramarathon Man: Confessions of an All-Night Runner by Dean Karnazes
  4. Peyton Place by Grace Metalious
(I haven't read in so long that this was hard to think about. I read other running books but they weren't as good. I also like all books by Mary Higgins Clark)

Four Places I've Visited:
  1. Niagara Falls
  2. Erie, PA
  3. San Francisco, CA
  4. Washington, DC
 Four Places I'd Rather Be Right Now:
  1. Home (but I'd rather family be near me)
  2. Home
  3. Home
  4. Home 
 Four Things I Don't Eat:
  1. Seafood
  2. Mustard
  3. Berries (except Strawberries)
  4. Refried Beans
(There are so many foods that I don't eat but I listed the first 2 that came to my mind then Dave chimed in with berries so I couldn't think of anything else until I typed that one. Ella loves refried beans  so that one seemed more important to list.)

Four of My Favorite Foods:
  1. Any starch with cheese  (Cheese fries, Nachos and Cheese)
  2. Chip n dip
  3. Peanut Butter with sugar (peanut butter fudge, peanut butter pie, peanut butter cookies, peanut butter balls, peanut butter cake, etc.)
  4. Angel Hair with meat sauce (as an added bonus it can be on a sandwich)
 Four TV Shows I Watch:
  1. Parenthood
  2. How to Get Away with Murder
  3. The Fosters
  4. Blackish Four Things I'm Looking Forward To This Year: 
(see more in this post)
Four Things I'm Looking Forward to This Year:

  1. All the things Ella will do/learn
  2. Going to Idlewild (hope it happens)
  3. Being done with nursing
  4. Leaving Ella with someone else for more than 3 hours

Four Things I'm Always Saying:
  1. ___ needs to be done (or more specifically what has to happen like the boxes need to be broken down or Ella's nails need to be cut) - when I'm trying to tell Dave to do stuff but he still has not caught on that this means he should do stuff
  2. She is so stinking cute - About Ella to Dave or my mom
  3. Will you tickle? - To Dave and he rarely does. I want him to tickle my back. It feels so nice
  4. How did she get so big? - about Ella!


  1. Replies
    1. I felt like it wasn't wven that informative

  2. I love the picture of the 3 of you.

    I never knew you were a janitor!

    I have never seen any of the TV shows you listed.

  3. Thanks

    Funny. I thought those were jobs people might not know. I didn't list the recent engineering jobs since people would be more likely to know those.

    those aren't necessarily my favorite shows. I watch a lot. They were just the ones that came to my mind. The Fosters Season 1 was really good. I watched it while pregnant and stayed up and watched all 10 episodes in the season straight through. I cried a lot.
