Here we go...

1. My name is Amber Denise Z.

2. I am 23 years old, and have brown hair and eyes.

3. I started going with my DF when I was 17 and he was 18.

4. I got pregnant in the first month we were together back in 98. He dumped me for another girl.....I finished high school and I became a single parent.

5. I raised my son by myself for 2 1/2 years without child support. And in March of 2002 we made contact again after him never seeing jorden...he lived in Fargo and came every weekend to see us.

6. He came crawling and begging back (who wouldn't he he ;) ) and I took him back. We have been together since. We are engaged....

7. We have been engaged since the fall of 2003.

8. He bought me the ring, and i ruined the surprise. I wanted to go shopping cause we had a bunch of extra money...and he told me not to spend much. And being my nosey self, I had to know why I COULDNT SPEND MONEY, LOL. Needless to say I figured it out.

9. He still made it a surprise...he handed me a gold tipped glass rose and the ring was hidden in the middle of it. I didn't see it at first and couldn't figure out what that clanking sound was, lol.

10. We decided to have another baby on Oct 18th 2003. I quit taking the shot and got on the pill to start my cycle back up. I found out I was preg in Feb.

11. Oct 12th I had Jayden....it was very different to have him there.

12. We have been struggling with the mixed feelings from our past since Jayden has been born. It triggered a bunch of resentment feelings that I have for him for not being there for Jorden the way he has been for Jayden.

13. He does show some favoritism. We may end up going to counseling....

14 I have no plans to get married....we have a rocky relationship at times, and sometimes he is a big turd. LOL I got my ring....that is all I want. Sounds bad, but it is true. We are married enough already....

15. He wears a ring too....why should I be the only one to wear a ring? He is taken too...

16. I have 2 brothers, one passed away when he was 4 months old due to SIDS, the other is 22.

17. I have 2 sisters. 33 and 36. One lives in Sioux Falls and I don't have much contact. The other is nowhere to be found....she moved in with my parents in 2000 and in october of 2000 she got pissed at my parents and moved....we haven't heard from her since. She doesn't even know our mother died....

18. I have 3 nephews and 2 neices. My 2 nieces I have only met 2x in my life. They are not 16 and 17. My sister let her ex MIL adopt them and she won't let our side of the family see them.

19. My brother has no kids yet....thank goodness.

20. I have never been out of the US.

21. I have been to Arizona, North Dakota, Minnesota, Missouri, Colorado. I have lived a sheltered life...

22. I will probably never move out of SD. Maybe after my dad passes, but I need to stay here for him now that my mom is gone.

23. My first son was born Aug. 2nd 1999. He was 5lbs 11oz. 19 inches long...born at 10:19 am

24. It was very traumatic for me and I never wanted to have another baby...needless to say I got over it.

25. Jorden had a knot in his cord that kept making his heart rate drop and he didn't grow much toward the end of my pregnancy.

26. I was induced with Pitocin. I had 5 hours of hell labor w/o drugs. Delivered with an episiotomy and vaccuum. No pain meds for the delivery either.

27. Jayden had a knot in his cord as well. It didn't cause him any problems though.

28. I am a 1 in 100,000 mommies....i guess it is very rare to have more than 1 baby with a knot in their cord.

29. Both of my babies had hair.

30. I am probably done having babies...at least with Russell. I am calling today to find out about a vasectomy for him. But u never know, we could break up and I could have a child with another man....hate to say it, but it could happen.

31. I don't have any contact with my mom's family....they all live far away or I have never really had contact with them before.

32. My mom passed away on August 15, 2004. That has been the hardest thing I have had to go through yet....and has been the cause for most of my PPD since having Jayden. I wish she would have lived just 2 more months to meet him. My parents were married for 27 years. My mom was only 52. She died of heart failure and passed in her sleep. She could have gotten on the transplant list for a new heart....i wish every day that she would have.

33. I have moved 6 times.

34. I have worked at the same job for over 5 years. Since Jorden was 3 months old.

35. I work for the state...taking care of mentally retarded people.

36. I work full time.

37. I would love to be a SAHM.

38. I LOVE e-bay!!!

39. I love to bake, and am ok at cooking regular meals.

40. I am going to start a new hobby - sewing. I am going to make car seat buntings and covers and little kid bath robes with animal heads. I am going to sell them on e-bay.

41. I 'get along' with DF's family. They are a wierd bunch. None of them have the same morals that I do...very strange.

42. I DON'T allow porn in my house. Or DF to watch it. If he wants that crap then he don't need me.

43. I broke up with him over this in Sept. He has decided to get his head out of his butt. As far as I know.

44. I consider going to a strip club cheating...will not tolerate it.

45. I am addicted to diet pepsi and cigarettes. I hate to exercise......

46. I am going to try to quit smoking soon. I can get free patches through the state. I have too much family history of heart disease, cancer, etc. to keep smoking.

47. I have smoked since I was 14. Most of that time 2 packs a day.

48. I don't drink - only on rare occasion. I was an alcoholic when I was a teenager. Alcoholism runs in my family. My parents were alcoholics...

49. I am 5'2" 115 lbs. I have been anorexic...got down to 75 lbs. Don't wanna be there again. Have to fight with this all the time....I have very low self esteem and body image. I got made fun of every day in school. Until I was a Junior and finally stood up for myself. I am an A cup...would LOVE implants if I could afford them....I would go up to a C. Some of my 'mean' nicknames in the past were tater tits (because they were small like Potato Oles), mosquito bites, and there was 1 boy in school that found it necessary to call me ugly every day.

50. Wow, after looking back at all of this, I should be in counseling!! lol Good thing I have a very good sense of humor and obviously my life has made me a strong person. I am almost always upbeat and happy. I think I am a very good friend. I give very good advice and I should take more myself, lol. I absolutely would not change my life for anything. It has made me what I am today. And if things wouldn't have happened the way they did, I wouldn't have my 2 beautiful boys. I am overall happy with my life....although....winning the lottery wouldn't be the WORST thing in the world, lmao!!!

How fun! Lets see if I can do this...

  1. 1. My name is Marla

  2. 2. I am 33 years old

  3. 3. My birthday is May 9th

  4. I just got smart and hit the numbers button so I don't have to type every friggin number. LOL

  5. DH's name is Thomas and we've been married for 5 years

  6. Our anniversary is March 27th or is that the 26th? Holy crap, I can't remember! How pathetic is that!?? (Note: My neice's birthday is Feb. 26th or 27th and I keep getting them mixed up!) Too lazy to go check. LOL

  7. Been in a major car accident twice in my life and both times walked away pretty much without a scratch. First time was a month before our wedding. I totalled the Blazer and got pretty bad whiplash. The second time, DH rolled our Pathfinder on the highway. Thank God for the ditch full of snow! DH had a few cuts but neither of us was seriously hurt. Thank You! Guardian Angel!!!

  8. I still drive like a speed demon, but not on snow or ice. Then I drive like an old lady!

  9. I drive a Mazda Protege, while DH drives the Tahoe we bought this summer - and he STILL hasn't sold our Pathfinder (not the one we totalled in the second accident)

  10. Ok, enough about driving and cars. I was on a roll. LOL

  11. I have a beautiful baby girl named Emmerson Soleil

  12. She was born on October 6th, 2 1/2 weeks early!

  13. I was so shocked as I was convinced she was going to be late and be born on my mom's birthday!

  14. I think I had one of the fastest labors for a first time mom! About 4-5 hrs total. Emmerson arrived 45 minutes after I got to the hospital!

  15. She looks more like DH's family, but I think she may be getting some of my red hair. It's still hard to tell

  16. Her eyes are really blue and I think they will stay that way, just like DH's eyes.

  17. My eyes are greenish brown. I think that's called hazel.

  18. My hair is more auburn, but in pictures it sometimes looks orange!

  19. I wear glasses. I wish I had contacts, but I'm too chicken to stick things in my eye.

  20. I am hard of hearing and wear hearing aids. I have a moderate to severe hearing loss.

  21. I hate being in noisy group social settings.

  22. I'm not a snob, antisocial or ignoring you. I just can't hear you!

  23. I don't wear my hearing aids when I want peace and quiet - or
