How are you feeling now that you're in the home stretch? I am counting down the days! Still have a lot of hip and back pain among many other uncomfortable symptoms. I hate to complain bc I wanted this pregnancy so bad, but I can hardly help myself!
How did you meet your DH? We met at work. He is a medical photographer and I worked the desk at the clinic we both work at. I was working in Derm at the time and he was always up to photograph the patients. He was always sure to say hello and we started to flirt a bit and then he ended up emailing me. It was all downhill from there!
Do you have any special hobbies?
I like embroidery and crafting as long as they aren't too complicated!

Where is your favorite vacation place?
I have two cats and will post pics tomorrow. I love dogs and pretty much every animal, but cats are just easy!

How long did you work in derm? I know we've talked about it before, I just can't remember. I worked as an MA in derm for 7 years. LOVED it!
Thanks! I'm good with it now, but it was not easy to grow up with!
I worked the desk (rooming patients/scheduling) for a year and then was a secretary for maybe 3 years. It was a great department. I work in Pain Medicine now and really love it. I have chronic migraines though and I feel like I understand what the patients are going through. Makes it much easier to deal with the unhappy patients/ complainers!
Here is our first cat, Ozzy. I went with a friend to the Humane Society. She was looking for a dog. Ozzy was a kitten and this particular HS was getting ready to close, so the animals were all super discounted. I walked into the cat area and he started meowing at me so loud and sticking his paws out of the cage. He was so adorable and I fell in love.
This is Finn McMissile (guess who named him?!). My mom is always rescuing animals and her neighbor found a litter of kittens in her garage last spring. The mother was feral. My mom trapped her and grabbed the kittens and let them live in her bathroom until they were old enough for her to find homes for. I though Ozzy could use a friend and decided to keep one, too. Well, turns out Ozzy didn't want a friend. A year later and I don't think he's ever really gotten over it. He likes the other cat now, but he gives all of his affection to my husband instead of me. Good thing Finn loves everyone and everything!
