a to z

I got this idea from Clean Eating Chelsey and it reminded me of the fun spammy emails a few friends and I constantly sent around when we just got out of college. I still miss those stinkin’ faces terribly and so in honor of them, I present the a-to-z of RunSingTeach.

A is for age: 33. Eddie Murray people. Eddie Murray

B is for breakfast today:Chobani Apple Cinnamon Greek YogurtOh so delicious and the perfect prepper for my new regime of supplements: D, B12, and Multi w/ iron! (Yea for the nutrient deficient!)

0% Apple Cinnamon

C is for currently craving: Cheese enchiladas, ice cream, cheerios with real milk. Basically all of my dairy no-no’s.

D is for dinner tonight: Not sure yet, either my homemade sweetgreen salad or maybe I can convince Kennyboy we need Chipotle….

E is for favorite type of exercise: Running. I love running, but as I am on hiatus. I am allowing myself to turn into part dolphin and hitting the chlorine at least 4x a week.Yeah Natalie rocks.

F is for an irrational fear: I can’t say that I have one. Perhaps never having kids? I’m not sure that is irrational as I have a lot of say in the matter.

G is for gross food: pickles. Pickles are gross.

H is for hometown: Hmmm, I am gonna go with the vague-DC Metro area, more Annapolis than Baltimore.

I is for something important: My bat-sh** crazy family. I love them, EVERY ONE, even when we fall, I love them more.

J is for current favorite jam: I spend a lot of time with my friends at NPR but if I’m gonna jam, I’m digging Matt Redman’s 10,000 reasons album.

K is for kids: Parker, my fabulous labby love son and Buddy, my jackalicious baby who lives in San Diego. I think they should have a play date.

L is for current location: I will refrain from giving the location from which I blog as to protect the innocent. 🙂

M is for the most recent way you spent money: Damn those Larabars and Kombucha.

Apple Turnover

N is for something you need: a sense of purpose. I want to feel used up at the end of each day.

O is for occupation: I am a teacher. You can give me a fancy pants title but I am a teacher all day every day. It was the job I was born to do.

P is for pet peeve: I hate active listening. (Yeah, Uh-huh…drives me crazy.) I also detest the sound of velcro, which is a challenge when you work with pre-tie shoe kids.

Q is for a quote: There are too many to list! I’m going to follow Chelsey’s example and send you on over here.

...sometimes :)

R is for random fact about you: Oh look, a bird…

S is for favorite healthy snack: Please see the M for money…

T is for favorite treat: Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream. Breyers. Done.

U is for something that makes you unique: I have taught music and technology but not music technology….

V is for favorite vegetable: chopping broccoli…

W is for today’s workout: I hope a hike with Kenny and Parker and a late night swim. 🙂

X is for X-rays you’ve had: wrist, ankle, ankle, foot, knee….oh and always on the right side…

Y is for yesterday’s highlight: My one hour walk and talk weekly tech chat. We went outside and walked to chat instead of sitting in the office. YES!

Z is for your time zone: Eastern Standard Time.

And for your enjoyment….

**Please note that the clarinetist in the video is not ACTUALLY the clarinetist in the audio…that clarinetist would be this guy…, he’s pretty awesome.**
