ABC's of Kelly!

For the past few weeks I've been really hoping to start a "Travel Tuesday" feature, where I talk about travel tips/places etc on Tuesdays. However, somehow every Tuesday rolls around and I just can't wrap my head around thinking and write the first post. I think the reason is because Tuesdays I have tutoring bright and early in the morning, work all day and my 1 break is occupied by a meeting and then I teach an extra-curricular class after school. By the time I get home, there is just no brainpower left. I guess now that I write it out it's understandable. Maybe I'll have to start Hump Day Travel? haha. Oh well.

I've been seeing this around the blog world a lot and Amber had it on her blog this morning so I thought why not...

Bed size: King. Had it for almost 2 years now and ridiculously spoiled by it now.

Dogs: No dogs. I like to visit dogs, but I don't want the additional chores that come with having a dog :)

Favorite color: Pink. One of my 4th grade after-school kids told one of the 1st grade after-school kids today (after she said her fav color was pink), just wait til you get older, you won't like pink anymore :) Still waiting for that...

Height: Almost 5'5"

Job title: Kindergarten Teacher... also known as Data Management Specialist (I'm not kidding that's what Kindergarten is these days- ask me about percentages of my students who know any random K still), also known as Most Flexible Person on Earth, also known as Coat Zipper/Shoe Tier.

Live: Near Boston :) That's all I'll tell you.

Nicknames: "Trips W---" (fill in maiden last name), and Kel pretty much...

Pet peeve: Any type of comments about how teachers have it easy, that I "play" all day, that I get paid too much, "must be nice to have summers off," and all those dang people who say, "oh it's just kindergarten."

Righty or Lefty: Righty... and forever oblivious to weather children are lefties or righties, probably not something a K teacher should be oblivious to!

Time you wake up: Usually about 6 am, I'm at work by 7 at the latest. On the weekends about 7. Doesn't matter what time I go to bed I'll be up by 7.

Vegetables you don’t like: Lettuce! Other than that I actually like most veggies.

X-Rays you’ve had: Teeth and my knee was X-rayed last year. No others I can remember...

Zoo animal favorite: Probably monkeys.

I think I just proved that I barely even had the brainpower for this... when I went back to check it I had like 6 of Amber's answers still left. Oops. I would promise more thought tomorrow night but I have like 1000 parent/teacher conferences tomorrow so that's probably unrealistic promise!


  1. i want a travel post! :)

    i'm the same way with waking up: no matter what time i go to bed i can rarely sleep in. usually. lately i've been so sleep deprived that i binge on sleep saturday and sunday!

  2. I want a travel post, too! It was fun to read your ABCs - I will prob do this later this week!

  3. Hahaha that would have been funny if you'd left some of my answers ;)

    You are missing some letters though.... Just sayin'

    Also you pretty much have me convinced that we MUST get a king-sized bed. I think I would sleep so much better, Eric really crowds me right now! Haha

  4. Fun!!

    Ahhh King bed... I want one sooo badly.

    I'm up by 7 90% of the time on weekend too. I wake up, glance at the clock and I *could* roll over and go back to sleep, but I hate to "waste" my weekends.

  5. Sooo are A, C, E, K, and O just not part of the alphabet?

  6. OH I like the monkeys too!
    I love pink, but not more than I love purple, blue, and green

    I am with you on the dog idea. I love then, and want one eventually, but right now I'm NOT ready for the additional chores!!

  7. you dont like lettuce!!?? who knew! haha do you eat salads then? well I guess not lettuce packed salads LOL

  8. What kind of alphabet are you teaching your students? :)

    Why not write up the post over the weekend /in advance and just do a quick edit Monday evening?
