Now that I have more people checking out my blog, I thought it might be fun to do a "10 Fun Facts". Basically 10 things about myself I would like to share with others. I do hope you'll share 10 things about yourself with me!!

1. I HAVE BEEN MARRIED ALMOST 9 YEARS, BUT BEEN WITH MY GUY FOR 15: We started to date right after I graduated high school and we've been tight ever since!
2. I HAVE DEGREES IN SOCIOLOGY AND PSYCHOLOGY: I'm a humanities girl, what can I say? I love to psycho-analyze everything. Is that a bad thing?
3. I CONCEIVED MY TWINS THROUGH IN VITRO FERTILIZATION: After trying for more than 2 years, we finally had our twins girls through IVF. That was a LOT of injections btw.
5. I PLAY THE PIANO: Better when I was a teenager, but still. DH recently bought me a piano so I'm honing up on my skills.
6. I AM CANADIAN; BUT MY CHILDREN ARE ALL AMERICANS: We went to university and live in the States for the first 7 years of our marriage. So all our kids were born in the States. Technically they have dual-citizenship on account of their parents both being hoosers.
7. I AM SEVERELY ADDICTED TO CAFFEINE: I had to say it. No I don't drink coffee or even lates, but I love my Diet Pepsi. Don't ever cross paths with me on a day I didn't have a Diet Pepsi.
8. I HAVE A CHILD WITH AUTISM: Most of you probably figured out this one, but one of our twins was diagnosed with Autism just after she turned 2 years old. She's doing great due to the extensive therapies. We are just taking one day at a time; and she amazes us daily.
9. I HAVE BEEN WRITING A BOOK SINCE 2001: You know, ever since the kids, I haven't had much time to write it. It's definately a work in progress but I vow to one day finish it!
10. I LOVE TO PAINT: Not walls, I actually hate that. But I do love to get a canvas and create! I so far have painted one in our house, one for my mom, and my husband has "commissioned" me to do one for his office. Payment for that one is rather... sexy!

Any more questions? Post away!

Hmmm. We just have 7 and 9 in common, but I think you are pretty interesting...

I'm not much into diet sodas though, my caffeine is coffee. Strong, cuban coffee. I start the day with THREE cups.

And I have written two books. The first I could never get off the ground. The second, I actually had a bite on last Christmas only to have it rejected.

Oh, good hell...the PAIN.

I have three friend who had the EXACT same experience you did with in vitro. They had their children and then promptly got pg again with no trouble at all.....

We have 7 and 8 in common.

But it is #2 that worries me. Are you analyzing and diagnosing us based on our comments?

Do we have to talk about my mother???

I'll have to put this one in the blog bank and do it later...

I actually like to paint walls.. Isn't that bizarre?

Dustanne said...

wow that is cool. I will have to do one of these on my blog.
I love to paint as well, though haven't done much lately.
What is the book about?????

Just found your blog today and WOW we have a lot in common. I also have twins after infertility and then a singleton we did all by ourselves. We're Canadian but our kids are American born too. Oh and I met my DH in high school too (married in 1998 but started dating in 1989). But uh-oh... my caffeine of choice is Diet Coke. I don't know if we can be friends. LOL! ;)

I would love to talk to you sometime about your daughter with autism.

We have some things in common.
