Jobs: More than you can count. Both of us with military backgrounds, you cannot imagine how many jobs I've put up with.

Movies: If I had to narrow it down, I'd say "The King and I". Many happy memories of my sisters and me dancing to it.

Places I've lived? You've got to be kidding. As with jobs, more than you can count.

TV shows? Right now it is 2 1/2 men and "My Name is Earl"

Looking forward to: Spring!

Favorite foods: Can you narrow it down? Too many to count!

Fave bevs: Red wines

Magazines: Saveur

Web sites: Well, you're here, aren't you?

No apologies necessary, JMed! Heck, we're all rootin' for you. This is a big family here and we share this stuff. I've never had a problem getting pregnant and believe me, I know what a blessing that is not to have any problems with fertility. So as far as I'm concerned, I'm looking forward to the day you post your pregnancy!!!! Not only that, TexasGirl and I have been knitting up a storm so you can count on some handmade baby blankets.
