Ten on Tuesday!

It's Tuesday AGAIN! I will be recapping soon the weekend of fantastic festivities of family! In the meantime, my brain is FRIED, I am beyond exhausted, I had a LONG day of clincals; and I feel like being mindless ;)

So....Ten on Tuesday!! :)

1. If your name was a verb, what would “to Chelsea” mean? (Insert your own name though…)

"To Abby": to fall, trip, or spill something; to react in an overly-exaggerated manner. In a sentence: "You really Abbyed this morning when you fell on your face!"

*Time out story: I have to walk about a mile to my hospital for clinicals in the morning. I was sick and exhuasted this morning on my way in; and was crossing the street in a frenzy at 6 a.m., and tripped on a curb and feel flat on my face right near downtown Tucson. Yep. I definited "Abbied" ;) At that point, I wanted to walk back to my car, drive home, and crawl into bed!

2. What myth have you always wanted to prove or bust?
That you cannot lick your elbow. I know it's possible.I know this because my husband Ryan did it. If you don't believe me? Meet him, and he will show you. It's very strange. I wish I could do that.......
3. If you had the ability to get a message out to the entire world, what would you say?
Take care of yourself!!!! From the beginning! Don't let it get so bad it's to late! Wear your seatbelts in the care! Wear a helmet on your motorcycle and bicycle! And reach out to loved ones and people in need; and LISTEN! It hurts my heart to see bad things happen to people that could've been prevented. :(

4. I know you’ve answered a similar question before, but it’s been awhile. Please name your current top 10 blogs.
To be honest; I don't think I read 10 blogs. Actually, my time spent in "Blog Land" should really be spent with my nose in my critical care text book. But here's the blogs I do frequent!:

5. Do you have a junk drawer?
Kind of. It's funny though; because silly arguments occur over the "junk drawer". It's in our kitchen and it has coupons, envelops,stamps, pens, and usb cords. One time, I found a lighter in it and was like "What is THIS doing in here? this belongs somewhere else". And Ryan was like "Uhm. Isn't that the everything drawer?" .... I guess my "everything drawer is still selective....

6. Bottled water or tap?
Tap. I need a little "flavor" and "oomph" to my water ;). Plus, minerals are good. I do filter my water with the Brita! But if I'm traveling, I resort to bottled.

7. As a kid, did you have a favorite Biblical story?
Yes. I always loved the story about the birth of Jesus; of course - what kid doens't love the mystery of the Christmas story. But the other one that always stuck with me was the story of the Leprosy. For some reason - whoever told that story to me made it very vivid how awful of a disease it was; and I thought it was so neat that something so "handicapping" and "secluding" was healed.
8. What is your favorite black and white movie?
Casablanca. And I know it's not a movie....but I looooooooove "I Love Lucy". Was obsessed as a kid!

9. Aside from your engagement/wedding rings, what is your favorite piece of jewelry that you own? Does it have a story behind it?
I have a necklace called my "Prayer Necklace" that I got as a Confirmation gift. It's like a little locket with a cross on it - and you can write a "prayer" on a pice of paper and put it in the "box" and wear it around your neck. I swear that necklace has magic powers; because it's been on me during someone my most trying moments in life! In fact, I now only wear it for certain occasions. (superstitious? ....maybe...)

10. What sports/activites do you hope your kids will be involved in? (Answer for both a boy and a girl)
I just think kids need to have "something" they are involved in. I really hope they would love piano, and track, and public speaking. Maybe girls will be nurses; boys will be little engineers. (Hmmm....) But, in all honesty; I just think each child needs to have something thye enjoy; be it painting, writing, basketball, building circuits, learning about money/banking, playing the cello or guitar! Let them be creative! :)

I wouldn't mind seeing someone be able to lick their elbows...I truly thought this was impossible!!

(FYI - I did totally try and lick my elbow after I read this and I wasn't able to!)

Abby, we didn't know Ryan had such talents! Next time we see you we will have to have him perform that trick! He must have a short upper arm or a long tongue! So funny!
You're right about the tripping and falling trait - runs in the family I believe. Also spilling things - ahem!!! You know what I mean, right? LOL!

I agree with you about the kids thing- as long as they love something, that's really all I care about :) Though I'd love for the boys some of the more dangerous ones- I'll be rooting for golf haha.

Love the "To Abby" haha
