I am married and have 2 super-cute children in second grade and kindergarten. I’m originally from the SF Bay Area and call that my home, but I’ve also been living overseas for about 15 years, and am currently teaching science in SE Asia.
I am fuelled by good-quality dark chocolate and pizza. My guiltiest pleasure is to eat candy while reading People magazine. I think I’ll start wearing tiaras while vacuuming.]]>
I grew up in Tacoma, Wa but now reside in AZ with the husband and kids.
When my husband started blogging I thought he was kind of a weird freak but after he persuaded me to read of few blogs from the bloggernacle, 9 Moons being one of them, I too became a weird freak.]]>
I am Rusty’s other sister (there are 3 of us) who used to beat up on him when we were younger. I’m glad we are friends now. I usually just read over the blogs when I have a few spare minutes. I rarely make comments for no other reason than what I say/think isn’t that important and/or has already been mentioned.
I served my mission stateside (the Field of Dreams was in my mission boundries…for all those movie fanatics) and I graduated from BYU WITHOUT the MRS degree. I’m the only daughter in the family that didn’t get married from a blind date.
My husband just started his carreer as an Invasive Cardiovascular Specialist last month and as a result we moved across the country from WA to North Carolina. We have two little boys (5 and 3) and are expecting our third child after Christmas of this year (hoping for that girl.)
I have lots of hobbies but won’t mention them here. I am very grateful for the family I come from…that there is such diversity in personalites yet we all seem to love each other and get a long…well, most of the time.
I like rice krispi treats and white cake with white frosting.]]>
We just moved from Iowa (where my husband did dental school) to Buffalo, NY (where he is now doing an orthodontic residency). Thanks for taking off on us, Stan.
I served in Honduras at the same time Rusty was next door in Guatemala. I met my husband on a blind date at BYU 8 years ago, graduated in Humanities/Music, and now teach piano lessons.
I don’t comment much here because…well, take this comment for example. I have been interrupted at least 11 times and it has consequently taken me a total of 53 minutes to compose a couple of semi-cohesive paragraphs. Oh well. For now, I rather enjoy spending my days playing army guys on the floor, coloring in (and out of) the lines, exploring local parks and zoos, and making sailboats out of apple slices and cheese triangles on toothpicks.]]>
We’ll let you stay and chat as long as you let me get off this rock and go to the academy soon.]]>
I too am new to viewing or responding to blogs.
In one life I grew up and graduated from High School in Idaho. In another I served a mission in Brazil. In another I got an engineering degree from BYU. In another I lived in Rochester, NY and worked for Xerox, where I still work but most recently in Portland, OR. A mini-life in there took me and my family to London, which, by the way, is the only place Rusty has voluntarily visited me (I wonder why?). I’m not sure if your lives compartmentalize like this but mine sure seems to. I haven’t even mentioned the married-but-no-kids-yet (4yrs) vs married-with-kids (9yrs) lives, which for people like Don the former was what, 9 months? Or was that eight?]]>
