A Get-to-Know-You ABC Game

So this could go on the GAME ON board but I figured it would be a fun, get to know you game.

SO we will go through the ABC's and You have to relate a word that starts with that letter to you..

A- Asparagus, I love eating steamed asparagus with butter, salt, and pepper. I also have a term I created related to the smell of pee after eating asparagus- aspeeagus

Beyonce ~ I have a slight worrying love for her. Not only has she an amazing voice, but I love her morals and beliefs regarding woman in society.

C - Chocolate:
I am addicted to chocolate. I have days where I become obsessed with a need to eat chocolate, so much so that I actually cannot think about anything else. Also I can (and usually do) eat at least 5oz a day of M&M's. I don't like chocolate cake though.

F-ferret
I had a ferret as a pet. She was the sweetest, nicest ferret. I still have dreams about her even though it's been 10 years since she died :(. It is always the same dream too. In my dream I forget I have her and go to check on her in her cage and hope she is still alive. It's very strange! I'd get another one if they weren't stinky. Even though they are de-scented, they still have an odor.

G - Gardening:
I really suck at gardening. I have killed all the plants I was ever put in charge of (potted and in the garden), including a cactus.

I-Iowa
I live in the lovely, sometimes boring, state of Iowa. I've lived here all of my life but can't think of any other state I'd like to live in. I guess I really don't know anything different. I like the fact that we have four seasons here.

M-Middle

I am the middle child of three. I have two sisters. DH is also the middle child, but is the middle of five. My middle DD's name is Madeleine. When I dreamt of what I'd name my children when I was younger I wanted a "Madelyn". I guess Madeleine is close enough!

N-Nicaragua

DH and I went on a mission trip to Nicaragua in Febuary. It was such an amazing experience. I can't wait to go back. We were on a medical team. While we were there we treated 860 people in 3 days in 5 different villages. We visited a total of 13 different villages during the week we were there. We have sponsered a girl since 2007 and we were able to meet her which was very neat and emotional. We are in the process of "talking" about going on a mission trip to Africa next year.

Sorry I took over the last 3 letters. I've been thinking ahead.

P-Pregnancy.org

I have an addiction to pregnancy.org. Even though I'm not TTC or doing IVF I am on the boards everyday. The ladies on the IVF board were such a huge support to me while going through everything. I hope I can be just as much of a support to others.

V-Vision

I have pretty bad vision. I wear contacts now but got glasses when I was in 6th grade. I'm blind without my contacts. DD1 and DD2 both have glasses also. DD2 has a pretty bad lazy eye which is corrected with her glasses.

Thanks Maddie!

X - X-ray

I'm scheduled to have one on my ankle soon. I sprained it really bad in 2011 and then again in Jan 2012 and every now and then, it seazes up and I can't walk. I feel like I need to rotate it so that something will crack into place.... sounds gross I know!

Z- zealous

I have zealous about having a baby! Smile

(So whoever posts next gets to choose how we continue... We can do it off the last letter of the word the last person posted... In this case it would be "s". OR we can just continue going abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz and start back at "a")

P-Person

I kind of had to stretch it on this one. I had a hard time coming up with a "P" word. I'm a shy person when I meet someone new but give me a little bit and I'll warm up and talk more. I think DH has helped me "come out of my box" and become more vocal about how I feel about things.

Next letter=N

S-Soaked

Our roof must be soaked because water is dripping into DD's room. I'm very frustrated with it. Our roof was replaced 3 years ago and this is the 3rd time we've had aleak, each being in different spots. We shouldn't have to watch for leaks in a 3 year old roof everytime it rains. I wish the contractor would just say enough is enough and turn it into his insurance and redo it. We hired our contractor to do it, but he got busy so he sub-contracted it out to someone who apparantly doesn't know how to roof. I cringe when I see the sub-contractor doing other ppl's roofs. Sorry for the vent.

D- Dreading

I'll have to look them up on the Better Business Bureau. We live in a small town so hopefully us telling people not to use them is enough. I just googled them and watched a YouTube video and I know the houses and construction they show are not in our area. I've never seen those houses here. Unless he did construction elsewhere before moving here.

I'm still working on the "G". I'm so uncreative so it really have to put lots of thought into words.

G-Grateful

I'm grateful to be the mother to 3 daughters. Without them I wouldn't have the experience of raising a child. Today my oldest DD turned 13. We put her name in a couple radio station birthday contests and she won an ice cream sundae. She didn't have much competition since there were only 4 names in the drawing for today.

H-Heart attack

I'm surprised DD3 didn't have a heart attack when she discovered a bat in her room last night. I know I would have. It was a late night as their spring program was late. DH and I were standing downstairs talking with my mom before she left and I could hear pitter patter of feet and I wondered "what are they still doing up?" DD3 came downstairs and very calmly said "there's a bat in my room." She had seen it and thought it was a bird, then after it flew around and hit the walls a few times discovered it was a bat and hid under her blanket. She pounded on her wall trying to get her sister's attention so she could come tell us there was a bat in her room. She did really good by calmly leaving her room and remembering to shut the door. I told DH she was calm about it. He said she was pretty sweaty and breathing pretty heavily. DH got armored with a heavy coat, gloves and big hat and got the bat under an ice cream bucket and slid something under it and let it go outside. He called the cops to ask how to get it out and they said they could come by and kill it. We felt too bad about killing it. We think it got in when DH and the contractor were up in her attic crawl space to check out the leaky roof. DH went up there again today and bat-proofed it by reinforcing the screen over the vent fans. This is the first time ever we've had to deal with a bat issue. Hopefully it will be the last.

Next letter=T or K
