~ii~ 10/11/03


I just finished a website the customer service rep didn't really care for. The customer e-mailed the customer rep & said this website is better than she ever imagined & her entire family is just estatic about the site.


I have never had one.... All earthtones.


My mother for raising 5 children on her own & you would never guess we were poor & none of us are in jail or starving. Instead only 1 has drug/alcohol problem which is under control enough to hold a job & do the things he wants. The other 4 are married, having children & own our homes.

My younger sister. After having 3 mc in a row she continued to try to start her family. I think if it were me I would have taken a much longer break than she ever did. She is now on her 8th pg & her 4th child will be born in a couple of weeks.

My older sister who left an abusive husband of 10 years with her 4 children. She is now remarried to a man who could not be better to those children if they were his own.


Both my dh & I work from home. I am self-employed while he works for a large corp. This allows our child(ren) to be raised in a comletely unique family situation. I am still the primary, as I work PT only, but I think our children will have a good relationship with their father, something neither dh or I ever had.

Best thing to happen today: Lance got the yellow jersey!

Your fave color: Today it's yellow. (But usually it's green)

Your inspirations: So many people-but what comes to mind today (can you tell) is Lance Armstrong. After reading his book you find out that he's a normal person like everyone else (and is frequently an ass like everyone else & wasn't afraid to show the world that side of himself) but had the strength to turn a bad situation into something to grow from. I also loved the stories he told about his wife going through IVF. I think it would have been very easy for him to skip over all that she went through to give them children. I always think it's good for awareness for celebrities to be open & honest about these struggles.

Share something unique about you! I was the 1st girl to play on a competitive hockey team in my entire state when I was 10 years old. (Now they have entire girls leagues-I think I was born 20 years too early.)

Share something unique about you! I am terribly outgoing and lack the little button that tells you to hush up at times *giggle*...was infamous in basic training (yes I was in the army!) for the amount of push ups I had to do thanks to my mouth!

Good for you, Chrissy... wish I had some of your energy! You could toss a little of it toward NH if you have a spare moment...

Name: Kate

Edd: 8/22/04 - but likely to go sooner

Angel date(s): 10/21/03 with D&C (found out on 10/3/03)

Best thing to happen today: Bedrest lifted at today's appt - I can get out of my house!

Your fave color: The pink of my 4-year-old's cheeks right after she wakes up.

Your inspirations: My 13-year-old sister, who has muscular dystrophy and keeps her spirit so strong... my husband, who is so smart and sweet and doesn't really recognize it... my unborn child, who has gone through such a tough pregnancy and is still hanging in there.

Share something unique about you! I'm a forensic psychologist who reads about serial killers for fun. I once planned to enter the FBI and become a profiler, but that job requires me to travel about 48 weeks a year and keep a gun in the house - not conducive to family life. So instead I assess and work with people in the criminal justice system after they've already been caught.

Thanks, this is cute!

Edd: end of March-05

Angel date(s): No other child... yet!

Best thing to happen today: Slept EXTREMELY WELL! Will go kayaking a bit this afternoon.

Your fave color: Blue... like the sea.

Your inspirations: My mom. She almost lost me at birth. Had a second child 2 years later. Also, a friend of mine. She got pregnant and found out the egg was "empty", had to have it removed. HCG was still up so went back to the doc. Had another in a tube. Had to have chemo to remove it. Discovered she had endo to top it all off! Had to go on the pill continuously. She had her final treatment at the end of June (after 3 months of chemo), lost 60% of her hair (Thank god she had a lot!). When I told her I was preg, she was ecstatic! (I had a m/c in feb) Told to call her regularly to check in... a TRULY great friend!

Share something unique about you! Hummmmmm... I don't really know! I am a high-school teacher, nothing unique there... I love what I do and can't imagine doing anything else! I love kids, I love teaching, I have been doing it now for 8 years and can't believe it's been that long! SO... please, DON'T notice the typos! (Nobody's perfect!)

Thanks, this was fun!
