I saw this on another blog and just had to do it...:) Found it on AP's blog, and I figured it would be a great way for other bloggers (and my few in real life friend followers) to learn a bit more about me...:)
Blog Title Inspiration: Uh, well...I was going a bit mad with dealing with IF the first time around and this SIF mess was a bit worse. So my OB pretty much told me it would happen again with time...LOL. Funny guy.
Chore You Hate: Putting away the clean laundry.
Day at the Beach or Cozy Rainy Day? Definitely a day at the beach.
Essential Start Your Day Item: Well, it used to be coffee until I decided to quit. Then when I was finally referrred back to the OB from the IF doc, I was told NO CAFFEINE. So glad I quit or I would have been mad.
Favorite Color: Almost any shade of green.
Gold or Silver? Silver.
Instruments You Play: Played the piano when I was younger.
Job Title: Senior engineering technician.
Kids: We have a 5 (and a half) year old little girl. Our unmedicated miracle (even the IF doc was astonished that we got (and stayed) pregnant with her.
Live: In the great white north (Minnesota), hoping one day in the next 2 or 3 years to live overseas again though!
Mom's Name: Carolyn although she goes by Nina.
Book Currently on Your Nightstand: None. Don't have time to read books. I do read lots of books on airplanes though (I never sleep on airplanes, no matter how long the flight so books are great for keeping me busy so I don't go stir crazy).
Overnight Hospital Stays? I have had a few. Once for tonsils when I was a kid, stayed in hospital when I had DD, and most recently 2 nights in the hospital for an insanely high heart rate and pneumonia (community acquired). Lovely.
Pet Peeve: People who make stupid comments about things they don't know about. Example: Infertility.
Quote from a Movie: I am not the movie quote type of person at all!
Right or Left Handed? Right.
Siblings: A younger brother and 2 older stepsisters.
Time You Wake Up? Whenever DD gets me up (I work afternoons).
Underwear: At the present moment? Maternity underwear. One of my friends couldn't believe I wear them (she didn't when pregnant)...but I grow so big my non-maternity ones cut into my belly and legs...:(
Vegetable You Dislike: I like them all! Really...I do.
What Makes You Run Late: Usually DD...LOL
Yummy Food You Make: Spanakopita...although I have changed my recipe a little and I am not sure I like it as much.
Zoo, Favorite Animal: Monkeys.
