Get to know me:o)

Well, it's very slow at work (yea) here's some stuff about me (I got this idea from Michelle's blog-see link at right.

Two Names I Go By:
1. Nay-obviously Short for Renay...some also say Nay-Nay
2. Ma-ma (Owen), mommy (Jake), mom (TJ), and I totally can't remember what Tim calls me but he rarely says my name

Two Things You Are Wearing Right Now:
1. Scrubs
2. name tag

Two of Your Favorite Things to Do:
1. Eat (well, it's true)
2. Go out to eat (sad, I know;-(

Two Things You Want Very Badly At The Moment:
1. to be home (except I love the money I'm making blogging and not actually working while at work and for those of you who want to tell on me right now, the rooms are stocked, my monitor strips are all done, and we are on minimal staffing-just waiting for patients to come in;-)
2. I want to not have to watch what I'm eating or exercise and still lose weight.

Two pets You Had/Have:
1. Since you know about the frogs, I had a dog named Bandit when I was little and
2. a cat named MC (who was Miss Kitty, but she was a He so we changed him to Mr. Cat and then shortened it to MC;-)

Two People Who Will Fill This Out:
1. Kara
2. Emily
(why b/c I say they must-but no pressure;-)

Two Things You Did Last Night:
1. Took Owen to urgent care because he fell and severed the frenulum (sp?) and it wouldn't stop bleeding (well, that is, until we got to Urgent care-4 hours after the injury)
2. Learned how to use my gas weed eater in preparation for the 2 tons of rocks that arrived today ( another project-I'll post pics soon:-)

Two Things You Have Eaten Today:
1. Low-fat soft serve vanilla cone for 60 cents here at work (one of my newest addictions-only 3 points and worth EVERY ONE!!!).
2. Veggies and dip (dip made with low fat sour cream and lowfat mayo and a hidden valley ranch packet and the girls here at work love it!).

Two People You Last Talked To:
1. Aside from co-workers/patients-Tim who I called to see how the project is coming
2. TJ who I had quite the talkin to since he woke Owen up from his nap (and the offense goes on but I am use self control!!!).

Two Things You're Doing Tomorrow:
1. Working -another 12 hour shift
2. Making lunch for the family -country style ribs with my famous homemade BBQ sauce (ok-it's really pchef's famous recipe but I claim it;-), Parmesan noodles and corn on the cob-YUM! and then working on the project

What Were Your Longest Car Rides:
1. Oh, this is a fun one. Tim and I took a 17 state road trip once-from IN to WI, Dakotas, Colorado, WY, Grand Canyons (yes, I know that isn't a state) Vegas, TX, and was fun! I'll probably NEVER do anything like it again as 17 states in 7 days is a lot.
2. Probably FL for our cruising addiction and I def want to do that again!!!

Two Favorite Holidays:
1. I must be honest here and say I really don't like Holidays. All the hype and sadness of picking and choosing between which fam to visit and not and getting the right gifts and junk...too hard. SO I'll pick Easter and
2. My birthday (it is too a Holiday!-October 28th!)

Two Favorite Beverages:
1. Fountain Diet Pepsi
2. 2-liter diet pepsi

What Did You Do Today:
1. Didn't I answer this already? Ok, I power washed the back patio
2. I cut landscaping fabric for the project

Ok, that concludes what Michelle's blog asked but I will continue with my own made up q's

Where were you born?
Nuremberg, West Germany

How many PAID jobs have you had?

I can't wait to see Kristy's answer;-)
I have had baby sitting, detassling, waitress, Purdue food service, Camp Counselor, Follet's Bookstore (where I met Tim), a short stint in a factory (whirl pool I think), A nursing home, and here at Home Hospital as an L & D RN for 10 years this MAY!!! I can't believe I started here (and graduated from Purdue) 10 years ago! My longest job ever, aside from being a wife of course.

What was your fav job and why?

Truly being an L&D RN. It has been a huge blessing and I love it more and more all the time. I also enjoyed working at the bookstore since it's where I got my MRS. And lastly, being a camp counselor was great too.

What is your middle name?

Suzanne (a great name, thanks mom!)

What was your maiden name?

Kovach (pronounced Ko-VACK).

What is your greatest fear (can't be death or disfigurement of a family member)?

I can't watch super scary movies, especially like Omen and Amityville horror.

What is your fav feature of your body?

That is a hard one...My freckles because they make my fair skin less fair.

If you could have any super power, what would it be and why?

Certainly not eye-ball pop-out man (ask Kara;-)

Another hard one-I hate following rules and picking just one. It would be awesome to read minds but I don't know if I could handle finding out what others think about me. Same for seeing the future...don't know if I could handle knowing my future (and those I love).

So, I guess I'd pick the ability to grant wishes....wouldn't that be cool?

Name a weird thing about your grooming habits (like not wearing deodorant or never washing your feet, etc)

I brush my teeth in the shower...I've always done this since being pregnant with TJ cause if I bend over to brush my teeth in the sink I feel like vomiting.

Did you go to prom and if so describe your dress...if not, why didn't you go?

I went to 3 proms. I wore the same dress to 2 though-it was a teal colored silky like material with cinching and was tea lengthed. My senior prom I went to stag and wore a bright blue dress,also shorter, like maybe knee lengthed. I think I looked like a blueberry. Boring answer-but they were boring dresses.

If you could have any job other than being a wife/mom or what you currently do, what would it be and why?

I think photography and web design. Both intrigue me and I really enjoy taking pictures!

If you had to change your name (1st and middle) what would you pick for yourself?

I would be, uh... Maybe Madeline, I love nicknames and Maddie is a cute name. I like Lilliana too and Grace.

What is your fav flower?

Pink Gerber Daisies and/or astromerialillies. (sp?)

If you could have a talent that you don't have what would it be and why

I would be a singer/pianist cause I don't have these attributes AT ALL and I think it would be awesome to have these musical gifts.

I guess I should end here. I hope you all play along...isn't this fun???;-)

Have a great Monday!

Can you believe we've been best

Mari said...

I LOVE questionnaires like this! I love reading what people put and am always surprised by so many of the answers. I am going to have to cut and paste this to my blog in the next couple of days too!! It's so cool to get to know more about you, Renay! I hope you are doing well!

April said...

Two posts...AWESOME!!

So you have mentioned "the project" a couple times and its teasing me! What is "the project"? Is it a big secret?

I love learning all these new things about you! I can't believe that our kids have been to the same school for 3 years and we're just getting to know each other. So excited and feel very blessed that you invited me! I can't wait to get to know you better!

You have been SO productive this weekend with your projects, not to mention work and kids. Geesh. AND Owen cut his frenulum? What?! How?! I just cannot picture how one would cut their frenulum in a fall. Ow!!! Poor little guy. That must have been awful for both of you.

Yay that it's slow at work so you can have computer time. However, does this make your shift go by slower rather than being swamped or steady?

60 cents for a soft serve cone at the hospital? Is that with an employee discount, or something? Otherwise, forget Igloo or DQ, we are heading to the hospital for a frozen treat this summer...hahaha. Columbian Park followed by the hospital cafeteria, why not?!

I have never heard of the 2nd flower you mentioned...I'll have to look that one up.

Well, I hope the rest of your shift flies by in no time. Enjoy your Memorial Day and all of the money you'll be making!

Very funny about the job comment! I will take you up on the challenge another day!

ang said...

I finally get a chance to catch up a bit on your blog site. I loved getting to know you with this post.
I will have to fill in my answers when I have more time to comment.

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend~~

Emily said...

Wow! There is a ton to comment on here. I am with April: what is "the project"?

I love the names you picked, too. Great flower choices, as well. I also am glad you chose L&D N. :)

I love learning more about you!
