Tag #1 and #2

1. What was I doing 10 years ago:
In high school, grade 12. Spending way too much time thinking about and getting ready for grad. Slacking off in school with only 2 classes the whole semester.

2. 5 things on my to-do list today:
1. Lots of cleaning
2. Laundry
3. Go running
4. Grocery shopping
5. Bake a cake for Roman’s birthday – cake and presents tomorrow even though his birthday is on Monday.

3. What snacks do I enjoy:

Just depends what mood I am in. And now that I am preggo, who knows. We have been making home made ice cream lately – raspberry and peach. I do like my mini eggs and other chocolate on occasion. Lately I have been eating a lot of peanut butter on pretzels. Love lots of types of cheese. And strawberries and raspberries.

4. What would I do if I were suddenly a billionaire:
Probably the same thing as everyone else. Pay off student loans, mortgage, and build a new house. Save for kid’s missions and school. Take our families on a fun trip. New vehicles. Very practical I guess.

5. 3 bad habits:
1. Lately it has been letting the housework pile up as I work, play with Roman, and lay around complaining about how sick I feel.
2. Procrastinating.
3. I still bite my nails on occasion.

6. 5 places I've lived:
1. Raymond
2. Edmonton
3. Provo
4. St. George
5. Denver
I think I have lived in 9 different places.

5 jobs I've had:

1. RN – peds cardiology, general peds, maternity, and ortho surgery
2. Dental assistant – loved it, but not good pay in the states
3. Lots of things in a hospital – unit clerk, housekeeping, kitchen aid, mental health aid.
4. Telemarketing surveys – hilarious job with fun people to work with
5. Road crew sign girl - sooooo boring

8. 5 things people don't know about me:
1. I worry too much about the future. Working on that.
2. I love the Gilmore Girls and have seen every episode.
3. I hate the smell of HP Sauce. Just the smell of it makes me gag. Brad loves it.
4. My pet peeve is people who don’t watch where they are walking, especially in the mall.
5. I hate sea food.

Tag #3

8 Things about myself that you may not know...
Since I just had to think of 5 things for the last tag I’ll do these eight about pregnancy – because that is where I am right now.

1. I have been much sicker with this pregnancy than with my first. I don’t throw up; I just wish I could because I swear it would make me feel better. Luckily I am starting to feel better, only nauseous in the evenings now.
2. I crave ice cold water. So all I do all day is drink tons of water, then pee a ton, and the cycle just keeps going.
3. I show quickly and carry really low. Last time I could put a hand under my boobs before my belly even started.
4. My belly button doesn’t stick out, just goes flat.
5. Last time I got stretch marks that bled.
6. With this pregnancy I have been very antisocial.
7. I get bad zits when I am pregnant. Lucky me.
8. Last time, and this time too, I’m not concerned about delivery. It’s the post partum recovery that I don’t like.

Oh sweet mercy! Your stretch marks bled? That's sounds insanely uncomfortable, and I'm pretty sure I never want to get pregnant now! I'll cross my fingers that doesn't happen for you this time. p.s. I love your new background.

I can't figure it out, only you and one other person has ever been able to. If you look right now is their a link to comment? weird. So, are you coming up or what? Miss you, even grouchy you. :) Love, Steph
