Well, we were planning on stopping at two but had this little surprise come along so I think 3 is a good number for us.

Favorite Star Trek episode? Oy, hard to remember! I never really watched the orginial, so for that one I'll have to go with the 2nd Star Trek Movie, The Wrath of Khan. My favorite episode (at the moment) of the newer series is the Voyager episode Faces.

I'm not sure how this works. It appears as though we can ask two questions. Here's mine...

Do you have any gummy bears that you can share with me? I'm all out.

and

If you do; can you FedEx them to Canada?

I'm so bad at thinking of questions but...

What position do you normally sleep in? Do you have to change it for pregnancy?

Are you right handed, left handed, or ambidextrious?

Whatever I'm reading at the time! I love reading, we have a huge collection of books. I think maybe Mists of Avalon, I read that one over and over.

Definitely early bird. If can wake up an hour or so before the kids and get some time to myself then that really gets my day off to a peaceful start. I'm much more efficient in the morning too.

Just the gummy vitamins that I give to the kids. And myself, because they taste a lot better than my prenatals. But hey, they have no dairy, wheat, gluten, artifical colors or flavors, eggs, nuts or soy.

Sure thing, just be prepared for an outrageous brokerage fee from FedEx!

My DS first played with a playsilk about 2 years ago, and I was shocked at how much he loved it! I had heard of them, but never seen them before going to visit a friend of mine. I love dyeing things, and after dyeing almost every white thing in our house decided to take it online.

Oh, I love that movie! Ok, it was horrible but I still liked it. : That and the Lady Hawk one with Matthew Broderick (is that right?) and I can't remember the woman's name. For some reason those two movies are stuck together in my head.

Got any hobbies?

I toss and turn, sleeping in a bunch of different positions. This doesn't really change during pregnancy, it just gets a lot harder to roll over!

I don't really have one. I've never really been one to watch movies more than once.

Yikes, I have no idea! Can I just be by myself with some books instead?

Sandals in the summer, or no shoes at all.

Somewhere sunny, tropical with beautiful beaches and not very many people. I love the beach and love being out in the sun, but I'm rather shy around people and don't like crowds.

Whichever one I'm reading at the time. Or whichever one is in the bookstore bag on the counter, waiting to be read. I love getting a new book!

Oh no, definitely not! I was born and raised in the south, my favorite place to live was in Charleston, SC. I feel like like a non-native plant transplanted to somewhere inhospitable living in WA, it has been very challenging for me. But the Navy sent us here and I'm counting down the days until we can go somewhere else. The grey, rainy winters here kill me.

What was your best vacation?
A couple of years ago DH and I took off to the Olympic Mountains for a long weekend with DS and did some hiking. It was our first real family vacation and I loved it.
Quote:

When I was pregnant with DS I went online looking for information on circumcision. DH didn't think we should have it done and I thought that we should, so I went to learn more about it. VERY luckily for DS I stumbled upon MDC and The Case Against Circumcision forum and quickly had my head pulled out of my I'm so incredibly thankful that I discovered the information and resources there before DS was born, the thought of what would have happened to him otherwise still puts a knot in my stomach.

I haven't had that many, and my first job at Wendy's definitely was not my fave! I guess I would have to go for my last one before quitting to stay home, being a nuclear engineer for a DOE lab. It was frustrating and there was rotating shiftwork involved but it was definitely challenging.

Quote:

10 cities in 4 different states. I've lived in 4 different cities (3 states) since marrying DH 6 years ago, he's in the Navy so we move around every few years.

I'd like to end up back near Charleston, SC. I loved living there! We also have family land in SC that I would like to build on, but that's probably a long time away. I know that realistically we'll end up wherever we can find the best jobs.
