The ABCs of Me

Good morning! As most of you know I am now at home recuperating from back surgery. The doctor said the herniated disk was huge and more impressive than the MRI showed. They also said the herniation had stretched several nerves and I could experience some numbness in my right leg and weakness in my knee for a while, but that has not happened yet. I am now starting week 3 of being on bedrest and needless to say, I am about to lose my mind! So, what do you say? Let's play a game. I stumbled across this great ABC meme on a blog I was reading this morning, and I thought it would be a perfect way to begin this week. So here it goes…

A - Age: I’m 30.

B - Bed Size: Queen. The perfect size for cuddling!

C - Chore You Hate: Cleaning the bathrooms. Ugh! I hate even thinking about it!

D - Dad's Name: Larry. Actually, his official name is Clyde, but he goes by Larry. If you live around here he is infamously known as "Huggy" or "Huggy Bear!"

E - Essential Start Your Day Item: a hug and kiss from my wonderful husband, Mickey XOXO

F - Favorite TV Show: Prison Break. I'm officially obsessed with this show! Mickey and I haven't missed an episode--ever! Thank you, TiVo!

G - Gold or Silver: My wedding rings are gold, but I usually wear silver. I'm just glad to know that it is okay to mix silver and gold!

H - Height: 5'8" I just hope when I get to "w" it doesn't say "weight!" haha LOL

I - Instruments You Play(ed): Clarinet. I began playing in 6th grade and played all through high school. I picked it up a few months ago to be apart of our church orchestra, but that has fizzled out. Mackaylan loves when I get it out and play for her. She is definitely going to be musically inclined!

J - Job Title: Instructional Coach. Please pray as I am really struggling in this area right now. I feel God may be moving me to do something new and different with my life. Pray that I will hear His voice clearly and will step out in faith to follow His will!

K - Kid(s): One adorable, almost 4 yr. old, sweet and sassy little girl, Mackaylan. aka Mac, KK, Doodlebug and Sweetie

L - Living Arrangement: A 3 BR, 2 BA home that is perfect for this stage in our life!

M - Mom's Name: Linda.

N - Nicknames: Lana Dawn, Chista

O - Overnight Hospital Stays Other Than Birth: Just this past Wednesday night after my back surgery!

P - Pet Peeve: Cabinet/Closet doors or drawers left opened or cracked!

Q - Quotes You Like: I don't know! I have lots of them! What's your favorite quote?

R - Right or Left-Handed: Right.

S - Siblings: One sister that is 9 years older whom I love and adore, Lori.

T - Time You Wake Up: On a work day, the alarm goes off at 5:30 and I am usually up out of bed by 6:00. What can I say? I am just a cuddle bug and hate being the first out of bed!

U - Ultimate Dessert: I would say my favorite dessert would have to be straight-from-the-oven chocolate chip cookies! Umm!

V - Vegetable You Dislike: I'm not a big veggie eater! However, one that I can't stand is broccoli. I would rather eat it raw than cooked if I had to.

W - Ways You Run Late: I run late most mornings, but that should not be surprising since I said the alarm goes off at 5:30 and I don't get up until 6:00!

X - X-rays You've Had: I have had an x-ray/MRI on my back, and most recently, I had a chest x-ray during pre-op.

Y - Yummy Food You Make: I haven't cooked in so long, I can't remember! haha

Z - Zoo Animal: I love the lions!

How about you? Do you know your ABCs?
