L is for Living *arrangement*: I have a couch, recliner, computer, tv, lamps, dining table and chairs, and a bed comfortably *arranged* in an “L- shaped” house. emoticon (Sorry - I have a tendency to play with the meanings of words – please refer to my entry for the letter “U”)

M is for Mom's name: Alice
N is for Name of best friend: Kate

O is for Observations: One of my observations as I grow older agrees with that of Carrie Snow:
“No day is so bad it can't be fixed with a nap.”

I totally take back those times when I didn't want to nap when I was younger.

W is for Worst traits: Distractibility. I tend to have many projects going at the same time.

X- is for X-rays you've had: Many – the one that showed a needle stuck in my foot was probably the most unique (and painful).

Y is for Yummy food you make: Gluten-free peanut butter chocolate chip cookies
Z is for Zodiac sign: Virgo – (September)

emoticon Now I've done my ABC's, now it's your turn just like me.

    Nice to learn more about you. X-ray reminded me of Mom dropping her sewing needles into the shag carpet -- eventually one of the seven of us would find it by stepping on it but none got imbedded like yours. Ouch!
