50th post...time has flown by!

Hello Cyber-friends!

I've been a little MIA the last 2 weeks. Things have been extremely hectic at work/home! I've been trying to read and comment as time is available. I'm sorry if you have felt neglected :)

Wow...50 posts! I can't believe I've had this much to say! Nothing is really going on in the infertility front right now. I took Femera this cycle days 3-7, estrogen cream suppositories cyle days here we sit waiting for 8 more days.

K and I decided to go on Vacation for a few days at Easter. We wouldn't have to use so much vacation time since it's a holiday week, and it would really do us some good to get away from everything and just we just booked our trip, and I am so dang excited!

In honor of my 50th post I thought I'd give you a list of 50 things about me/my life/hobbies/likes/dislikes.

1. I start back school in August 2008 to become a Middle Grades Math/Science teacher.

3. I have two fur babies: Kooper and Karter
4. I have worked at the same company for over 10 years.
5. I love to watch Reality TV.
6. Sushi is one of my favorite foods.
7. I still have the same best friend that I had in Elementary School.
8. My parents are still married (so is K's).

10. I hate when people pull out in front of me while driving.
11. I kinda/sorta scrapbook from time to time.

13. As I've grown older, I've learned that family is the most important thing in life.
14. I listen to all kinds of music, but am most fond of country.
15. I hate matching socks while doing laundry (and usually leave them until last).
16. I tend to be a procrastinator.
17. I am currently trying to read the bible all the way through. I have tried this many times before, but have made it the farthest (Numbers 21) on this try. (I'd appreciate your prayers on this one)

38. I have a passion to work with kids who are around the same age that life became a roller coaster for me.

40. I tend to be a people pleaser just to keep things peaceful.
41. Lately, I have pushed God to the back burner and am currently trying to find my way back to the fire I once had.
42. I only eat Chinese/Japanese food when it's really cold outside.
43. I am dreading the time change this weekend because I am not a morning person.

Elaine, that was so cool!! I will pray for #17, #41 and #44. I think having a friend from elemetary school still says a lot about a person character.

Mel said...

Thank you so much for sharing all this-I loved reading it! We have a lot in common. ;)
Where are you guys taking your mini-vacation?

Elaine said...

We are going to Mexico, south of Cancun to avoid all the Spring Breakers. Never been there before, and have to admit, I'm not very fluent in Spanish at all!

Fertilized said...

What a great list and idea! I loved it.. It's the only way we (as bloggers) get to know eachother

gracechild said...

Well MS Elain you are quite a fighter & survivor. I'm very pleased to know you. Now you're gonna make me go out for some sushi lunch (sigh!)


i know i have said it before, but i can't tell you how many things we seriously have in common. i am a teacher, i scrapbook, love sushi, have a son named cooper and thinking of carter for number 2, love cherry coke and sweet tea, obsessed with reality tv, listen to country music, strong faith, psycho about balancing my checkbook, have a messy closet, the list literally goes on and on. i hope someday we can meet!

Mel said...

I LOVE CANCUN!! Been twice and would go back in a heartbeat.
You are going to have such fun! :)
You don't need to know a drop of Spanish, I promise. It is so Americanized.

Wow! Mexico sounds like a lot of fun - actually, any vacation sounds like a lot of fun right about now. I enjoyed reading this list about you.
