Well, the Middle Name Game, anyway. Dawn over at Coming to a Nursery Near You tagged me for this fun meme.

It's goes like this:

Here are the rules:

1. You have to post these rules before you give the facts.
2. Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of their middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.
3. When you are tagged you need to write your own blog post containing your own middle name game facts.
4. At the end of your blog post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

Ok, now on to my middle name. It's no shocker that with a name like Jeanna (pronounced just like Gina, for those who don't know me personally) that my middle name is Marie. Now since I was tagged by Dawn and her middle name is also Marie, I didn't read hers so that I can't cheat (Dawn, I'll go back and read yours later).

M. I'm a mom (duh, right? Hence the title of the blog). I've been called mom, mommy, momma, mommeee (coming from when Bubba was little, he over enunciated his e's and mommy came out mommEEE and daddy was daddEEE). I was MomMom for a short while with Gooey, now currently calling me Meme (total coincidence about the MEME thing).

A. Animal lover. I love my dog, Ranger just like he was my own son. We currently have 2 hamsters, a hermit crab, a fish tank containing guppies, danios, a small catfish, and a snail, and, of course, Ranger.

R. Reading. I love to read. I just finished Book #13 for the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich. If you haven't read any of these, I HIGHLY recommend them. They'll make you pee your pants laugh out loud while you're reading them. Yes, people will look at you strange, but it's worth it. I also, love to read online. I'm always perusing websites to read people's stories.

I. Inventive and Imaginative (I couldn't decide on just one word). I like to invent stories and adventures for my family. Our recent Lampoon's Missouri Vacation from last month was one. I make up stories with my children all the time (and have since I was a little girl).

E. Exhausted. With the hours I work and taking care of 2 kids, a husband, and the small zoo I live with, I'm always tired. I exist on about 5 hours of sleep a night average. This is why I so look forward to my afternoon naps on the weekends. Their heaven in my mind.

Ok so there you have it. My middle name by letter. In case you're interested and I know you're sitting on the edge of your seat waiting to hear this, it came from my grandmother on my mother's side. Her name was Hazel Marie. If Gooey had been a girl, he'd have been Jillian Marie.

So, let me see who I can tag.

M. Mommy911 - I'm tagging you because I think you'll have fun with this.

A. Amanda at OhAmanda . You don't have enough going on with all the blogs you maintain so I thought I'd give you something to do :)

R. Is it sad that I don't know anyone who's name starts with an R (at least, that I can think of offhand).

I. Can't think of anyone for I either. Maybe I'm just too tired.

E. Stay tuned...I'm dwindling fast here.
