*What's your favorite book?
post #2 of 17
I found MDC after reading the magazine (which I found at a Barnes and Noble I believe) for 2 years. I love that this is a place where I dont get yelled at for every little thing I do thats not mainstream.

My favorite meal...hmmmm....I'd have to say Peroski with a salad on the side. Its a Russian food...kind of like a roll filled with ground beef and cheese and spices. Its hard to describe but lets just say, I dont normally eat much meat but this is an exception. Droooool....

I also love Olive Gardens breadsticks and alfredo sauce. lol

My favorite book is a series-the Golden Compass books. I've been reading them since I was little and my dh just got me a limited edition hardbound set. I have a ton of books I love but this is definately my fav.

I cant stand it when I see a little baby screaming in its infant carseat and the parents just completely ignore it. I just want to....argh! It drives me insane!

If I could go anywhere for a vacation, I'd probably go to New Zealand. Even cooler would be waiting until Pai is older and meeting some Maori people who could maybe tell her more about Paikea and learn more about their culture (my dh is an anthropologist wanna be, lol). Plus, its just a gorgeous place!

My favortie non alcoholic drink would have to be Freckled Lemonaide at Red Robbins. But I also love Mountain Dew .

Well...I was asked to change my user name years ago and I couldnt think of ANYTHING. I thought about it and this is what popped in my head. It just fits me really well-I dont like most doctors and most doctors hate me for being so non-compliant. I mean, jeeze, we arnt supposed to research stuff and use our own minds, dontchaknow. Anyway, I learned over years dealing with medical stuff to be a pain in the butt, so I am!

When I had my first kiddo, I was horribly overwhelemed. Very happy of course but-I was 18, still in highschool, single, my mom changed her mind after he was born and decided not to help me, no car...and he had something wrong with him when he was born and everyone thought it was withdrawl. So I had to deal with the doctors and the NICU and all this crap for 5 days before we even go to go home and their deciding that I was on drugs (before the drug tests came back negative) and refusing to allow me to breastfeed resulted in it taking 3 months to get him to breastfeed. I dont think I really got to enjoy his infancy at all In all honesty this relates a lot to my user name-this was probably the first experience that really got me hating doctors. (Of course, not ALL doctors, and I had a great group of them at the hospital this time around so I give credit where credit is due )

My favorite craft is probably knitting. But right now I dont even want to do that...pretty much all I do is clean, play World of Warcraft for an hour, and then head to the hospital.

And thats this weekend?! Wow. I'll totally go if my bubba is home. If not I'll have to think about it. I usually spend most of the weekend hanging out at the hospital getting cuddles. If I can get my house remotely clean, you can come over here though, lol.

Hi Cari,

Nice to learn a little more about you. Thanks for sharing.

For some reason when I'm pregnant I find I read the same books over and over again. When I was pregnant with Cale and Dillon, I read the Harry Potter series. This time around I've read His Dark Materials. I'm currently halfway through The Subtle Knife for the FOURTH time since conceiving. I have no idea why I do this.

- Where do you live?
- Do you like your in-laws?
- Are you close to your parents?

I live in Bothell, WA, about 15 minutes from Seattle, in a sad little townhouse, lol.

I actually really like my in laws, I just wish my mother in law were more reliable and maybe was a bit more involved with my kids. She'll say she's coming over and then not show up and its annoying...but beyond that, she's very cool. My dh's bio dad is pretty cool too, he's very quiet and just easy going. And his step dad is um...well, he is now a woman. They got divorced but are still friends and we still concider her their grandmom. He/she is awsome too! I know thats odd, but my kids couldnt care less if he's a he or a she

My mom lives an hour away but she hasnt talked to me for 2 years, so I'd say we arnt close. She's got some major mental health issues and I couldnt in good concience send my kids over to her house anymore-this is why she stopped talking to me (the final straw was her finding 2 dead rats in her house-it is beyond discusting). That and I asked her to get help. Oh well, my life is much more peaceful honestly.

I dont know my dad, although I do have occasional emails back and forth with his mom. The sad thing is, they live 15 minutes away from me and its been 4 years since I've seen them either. My family sucks!

Oh, perhaps I knew that! I'm in Bellevue, so we're "neighbors".

I'm sorry about your parents. That sucks.

I love going to my father in laws house in Vernonia OR. Its this little teensy town on a river and its just so pretty and quiet. I'd love to live there honestly. I also love anyplace on the ocean. Oh! and I used to visit Palo Alto several times a year and I loved it. I guess I like going a lot of places...lol

The hardest part with Kai has been leaving him each night. I hate to go, especially when I get so little time there. Right now its even harder because he is so awake now, I just want to snuggle him all day. He's on his countdown to come home and its just nerve racking....I mean, if he has any desells in 5 days, he start all over. I just feel like its never going to end.

Our girl name was Piper. We didnt pick out a middle name yet, so just Piper

Yes, I think it was a lot easier going from 2-3. Its still a transition, but I dont know, somehow it was easier on me. I guess cause I was already used to chasing after 2 by then, 1 more didnt seem like such a big deal? lol

My favorite movie...ooo tough. I really like the Whale Rider just cause its where I first heard my daughters name and its a really sweet story. And I like a lot of raunchy movies as well-like Super Troopers, Clerks, etc. And Finding Nemo!

I dont get to relax, ever! But in theory, if I could, I would so go to a spa in the mountains (we have this little place called Levenworth a couple hours away that is just so cool) and just be pampered for 3 days straight! lol Usually my relaxing involves leaving my kids at home with dh and going to the mall or something...but then I'm all worried about my kids trashing the house so its not very relaxing.
