Alphabet Meme

Mari did this fun alphabet meme the other day over on her blog, and today seemed like a good day for a little silliness on my part. The alphabet restrictions will keep me in check and hopefully the limits will also keep me from embarrassing myself with my ramblings...not enough coffee has it's drawbacks.

A is for your age: 43
B is for your burger of choice: ketchup and mustard ONLY
C is for the car that you drive: Chevy Venture Van
D is for dog's name: I guess that means the one I'd pick since I don't have one. I'll go with Sam. Hubby's last dog he had growing up was Trouble, and we babysat one long-term when I was about five or six years old whose name was GiGi.
E is for an essential item you use each day: My glasses
F is for your favorite television show: Clean House
G is for favorite game: I'm competitive, so one I have an advantage at over the other players, or else a single player game, like Sudoku. Okay, Dutch Blitz if I'm playing with my kids, but they can beat me, too.
H is for hometown: Mountain Home
I is for instruments played: Piano and Handbells

J is for favorite juice: Orange juice (the kind my great-grandma used to have when I was growing up tasted like the Sunny D they have today...I still remember that specific taste)
K is for what you'd like to kick: um, all the stuff in my garage waiting for a garage sale out to the street?
L is for last restaurant you dined at: Does Steak 'n Shake count as a restaurant?
M is for your favorite muppet: Probably Miss Piggy
N is for number of piercings you have: One in each ear, although I never wear earrings anymore.
O is for overnight hospital stays: Counting myself and my children...9...a knee surgery when I was 13, tonsillectomy when I was 25, three births for four children, staying with the girls when they had to go on the pediatric floor with RSV from the ICN before they ever left the hospital, Chatty for her liver surgery two times, Buddy when he was readmitted at 10 days old with ear infections in both ears...I think that's it. It doesn't count the extra days I stayed pre-delivery with the girls or all the times at the Ronald McDonald Houses.
P is for people you were with today: My immediate family
Q is for what you do in quiet times: Read, pray, and work on the computer
R is for regrets: How late I slept this morning...it made my day start badly.

S is for status: I assume this means married, but other than that, low man on the totem pole.
T is for time you woke up today: I'm too embarrassed to say.
U is for what you consider unique: How I can have such curly hair and no one else in my family does, but then I have a couple of kids with blue eyes, and one of them has very bright ones. We all have the unique handprint of God.
V is for favorite vegetable: I wish fruit started with V. I guess green beans.
W is for your worst habit: I'm probably with Mari on this one, procrastination.
X is for x-rays you have had: At any point in my life I think I have them all covered except for my skull, although they probably shot through it when they did the MRI of my spine a few years ago when my arm was paralyzed, and my feet.
Y is for yummy food you ate today: Nothing yummy yet, although I still have buttercream frosting in my fridge!
Z is for zoo animal: Giraffe

Those were all very cute! I think I may just do this meme too...since I'm all done reading my blog links now. And am waiting for Jeff to get done work.

Two Saturdays ago I slept until 11:15! I haven't done that since I was in college!...so don't feel bad that you overslept this morning! :)

I loved reading this so much that I decided to play along! I hope that's okay....
