Hello Girls!

Well, my name is Glenda and I am 34. I live with my DH (Brian) and our dog Suki in Southern New Jersey. I was also born and raised in this area.
I am a diagnostic medical sonographer, which means "ultrasound tech" to most people. I have 2 jobs, one part time and one per-diem. I like my job, but sometimes it is a little hard to see so many pregnant patients, and be longing to be pregnant yourself.
I am not a very patient person, but I think TTC w/ MA is teaching me to be patient. I think that will make me a better mother someday.
My hobbies are: gardening, traveling, and reading. I am very excited about Springtime this year, I want to make some changes to my veggie garden. I grew some pretty awesome tomatoes last year and I want to have them even better this year.
I went to Germany and Switzerland last year when the air fare was really cheap. It was a wonderful experience, and I definitely want to go back again. The year before that, I went to Montana, and through parts of Glacier Nat'l Park and Yellowstone Nat'l Park. I have a lot of places that I would like to visit in the States still. This spring I may have the opportunity to visit New Mexico.
I have read a lot of Anne Rice, Stephen King, and Twilight of course. I also have read a lot of historical romances and Jodi Piccoult books. I will basically read anything, as long as it's fiction.

20 Facts About Me:

  1. I had "bangs" until I was 25. Only a recent subscriber to the long layers look. LOL
  2. I can't really dance...I try, but I am the one at the wedding that runs into people doing the electric slide.
  3. The first time I ever wore a cap and gown was college graduation...(I dropped out of high school)
  4. My favorite color is green
  5. My favorite food is a tomato sandwich...but it has to be a fresh Jersey tomato.
  6. I like restoring old photos on the computer...though I need to take a Photoshop class one day.
  7. My favorite number is 7
  8. I am more than a 1/4 Irish, the rest is German, Welsh, English, and supposedly some Native American in there.
  9. My Mom died when I was 19 and I still miss her, especially through all of "this"
  10. I got my first grey hair this year
  11. I can't swim very well.
  12. I grew up very poor...the only heat was a woodstove and the only AC was a fan. But, I think it taught me to appreciate luxuries that most people take for granted.
  13. I used to write a lot of (bad) poetry. I gave that up.
  14. I am really good at fixing things when it requires MacGyver skills. No lie, I once fixed my Mom's car when I was 12 using a paperclip and a pack of bubble gum (car stalled out from a leaky vacuum solenoid)
  15. I can work on my own car if I choose to, but I don't. LOL
  16. I can hold one eye still and roll the other one around. It's so disturbing to watch, I usually don't get a requests for a second performance. I use it to torture my DH sometimes... He hates it!
  17. My favorite season is Spring
  18. I don't really like sports
  19. I have a weakness for cake...cookies...pastries....yum!
  20. When I was little, I always wanted a treehouse, I plan on building one for my future LO!

Do you speak another language? No. I mean, I can ask for a coffee and say please and thank you in German, and I can just about do the same in French and Spanish.

What are some of your FAVORITE ever books? The Chronicles of Narnia, Gone With The Wind, Mary Balogh's "Simply" series

Where will your next trip be taking you? Maybe New Mexico, no definite plans yet.

What is your favorite movie? Hitchhikers' Guide to the Galaxy

Any favorite recipe you want to share? I am not really much of a cook, and if I do cook, I usually don't use a recipe.

1. What kind of dog do you have? a Korean Jindo named Suki
2. When you do get preggo will you be able to give yourself an u/s?? How can I resist?
3. How did you and DH meet? We met through a mutual friend. I pestered him for a year until he finally admitted he loved me!
4. Why Germany and Switzerland? I have a friend from high school who is German, and I went to stay with her for part of my trip, then I went off on a Germany/Switzerland Rail Pass by myself, and went through the Alps. I love mountains, so the Alps were my MUST SEE.
5. What other countries do you want to travel to? I would like to visit England, Ireland and Italy, and all the rest!!!!!
6. Do you read Nicholas Sparks? ... if not you should! I read the Notebook, cried like a baby, went to see the movie, yep, cried like a baby again. I try to keep away from books/movies that make me cry...although I did enjoy reading it.
