# of Cycles TTCing: lost count LOL it's been just over a year
How many kids do you want?: we have agreed on 2...but i'd be happy with 3
When you are not TTCing - what do you do (work/hobbies/etc...): i work part time as a production rep at ADP (it's a payroll compay and i stuff checks and wrap them to be sent to companies). DH also works for the same company and in the same building. i tend to be a crafty person at times--scrapbook, quilting, knitting, cross stich, and my MIL and SIL just got me into one-stroke painting. i love the beach and i also like to watch hubby race, but he hasn't done a race in about a year because of our move and he hasn't been able to do anything to his car.

# of Cycles TTCing: 2nd Cycle
How many kids do you want?: 2 or 3, I want more because I'm an only child and I know how lonely it was for me, but DH wants only 2 or 3.
When you are not TTCing - what do you do (work/hobbies/etc...):
I work as an Accounts Payables Clerk, and Billing Clerk at a Freight Company. I want to be a Graphic Artist, but here in Texas, there is not much of that Business. I got an Associates Degree in Digital Imaging Technology. On my spare time, I like playing on the computer with Photoshop, and taking care of my online Neo Pet "Raven_Sunset" I like Scrapbooking, and I LOVE watching Plastic Surgery, and baby shows. I am OBSESSED with Reality shows, but I'm trying to cut back to The Biggest Loser, The Apprentice w/ Martha Stewart, and The Apprentice with Donald (when they start next week) I love songs from the 80's. Oh, and I like playing Dance Dance Revolution on our PS2. LOL. it's fun. Oh, and shopping, and collecting Hello Kitty stuff. I love Hello Kitty.

How many kids do you want?: Kinda dreaming of 4 or 5, but I don't know if that's realistic!
When you are not TTCing - what do you do (work/hobbies/etc...): I'm a college student--have two degrees and am working on a third to build my portfolio (and as a diversion until I become a mom!) I'm a student assistant at my college part-time. Love to travel, ride horses, write poetry and prose. DH and I are building a house at the moment, been busy with that!
