Well, we all know TTC is a hurry up and wait game. You're always waiting on SOMETHING! So what do you girls do to pass time? Hobbies or jobs or rugrats?? haha

For me I'm a Crafty McCrafterson. Thank goodness my friends are at least popping kids out because I'd have piles of baby stuff to stare at and it just woulnd't be good. I love sewing the most. I've sewn dresses, aprons, pillowcases, drapes, blankets among other things for myself. I've also learned how to make nursing covers, boppy covers, burp clothes and recently starting making my own stash of cloth diapers, wipes, pads, and nursing pads. I love the outcome of something I made. I also make a lot of tutus, hairbows and things for friends. Never tried selling them online but I know I have a few people in town who buy my stuff. haha

I also love to read. I'm addicted to my kindle app on my iPhone. Recently I've discovered I'm really into science fiction, but the more futuristic society struggle type....not the aliens and flying cars type. I love fiction, too. I'll read pretty much anything for face value, but I'm very opinionated about my books!

Hubby and I like to go fishing, take our 3 dogs for walks, go to the movies, and watch Hockey (go Kings!). Oh & I'm starting my own blog! Yay!

So what do you guys to to hurry up and wait?? haha

Janessa, I TRY to scrapbook!!! Haha I envy people who have that creative ability because I lack that. I can use Templates or magazines to get ideas, but I've never been one to put a page together myself and have it look nice. Haha. And I'm like 3 years behind now. OOPS!!

I also garden!! Have you started working on yours yet? I started prepping mine this weekend. Last year we moved to someplace that can actually sustain a garden and we only have our tomatoes survive that ridiculous heat last summer. My watermelons grew to about the size of an orange and then shriveled up. The strawberries and peppers didn't grow at all! I guess I lack a green thumb too. Haha. What are you going to plant in your garden??

Work keeps me pretty busy, but in my spare time in the summer I do work on my little mini-garden. Last year was the first year I did anything with a garden. So, I am working on trying to improve it this year. My tomatoes didn't grow worth a flip due to the oppressive heat, but I can grow cucumbers like a mad woman! It's a good thing b/c I love 'em!

I also enjoy reading, but here lately haven't picked up anything. Of course I do love my shopping!! Sometimes it is just window shopping, but I cannot pass up a good bargain! Why pay full price!?!

Augie & Mrs. McFadden I'm jealous! My computer's internet is sooo slow it's so hard for me to play games online.

Band Geek, That's funny about your tomatoes! That's the only thing that produced good fruit out of my plants last year. We had the same problem with the excessive heat!

Samantha, I know what you mean about not having time! I can see how that would keep you on your toes. I try to convince myself that one day I will look back and be envious of when I could do things without trying to fit them in between a nap, diaper change, or feeding. Kudos to you for running the ship at full speed!

I haven't started yet. It was really sunny last week. We bought the stuff over the weekend and now its gloomy. But the sun should be out in a few days and I will start then! We got a variety of flowers, a variety of peppers, corn and watermelon. I think that's all.

I read. A lot, lol. Play Facebook games, Walk the dogs, work on obedience with them. I sew blankets sometimes but have had to stop as I can't give them away anymore, lol.

Cupcake, If I ever get pg with a girl, I'd totally buy one of those little tutus from you! I want one so badly for a newborn photoshoot...I don't care how badly they seem to be overdone, lol.
