Tagged, for the very first time, like a....

I've been tagged by Fiddle1 at It's Stork Season...And I've Bagged My Limit. Thanks girl!

So here it goes.....

1. What was I doing ten years ago? Well 10 years ago we started trying to conceive a baby. We had been married almost two years at that time and decided to wait two years after being married to have kids. Little did we know we'd still be waiting...

I still remember the day, January 1st, 1998. I even wrote it in my journal, (which I have since destroyed, I know, I know, I should have kept it, oh well).

It was my first trip ever to Egypt, and when we got here, DH was like are you ready to have kids, I was like YEAH! The entry went something like this "Nine months from today we will be parents, We have finally decided to have kids. I am so excited and know that in 9 months God will help us to be the best parents..."

2. 5 things on my to do list today: Dust, find something to cook for dinner, blog, check email, try to stay cool... I know BIG fun here!

3. Snacks I enjoy: Nacho Cheese Doritos shaken in bag with Frank's Red Hot Sauce, pretzels, carrots, all kinds of crackers, this cool Chinese rice cracker mix I found here in Cairo, microwave popcorn, potato chips and chip dip from grocery stores in NY, sunflower seeds, really anything salty, not too big on sweets for snacks.

4. Things I would do if I were a billionaire: Send my mother and her husband to Tahiti, Pay off all my mother and my fathers debts, travel to a different country every other month, donate money to advancing infertility research, pay monthly for life to a number of poor childrens families, sorry but yes- shop my ass off, finish decorating our house.

5. Places I have lived: East Coast USA, West Coast USA and Egypt.

6. People I want to know more about: All of you! So if you're game, leave a comment here and tell us you answered on your own blog and we will come check it out!


  1. I was glad to see that you included infertility research in your lists. My husband thinks I am crazy because I say that if we were to ever win the lotto, I would help those who don't have infertility insurance (myself included...I have very little, but it doesn't cover IVF).

    I am a newer reader of your blog. I look forward to following your journey.

  2. I have seen this meme in quite a few blogs lately, I think that I am going to have to have a go!!

  3. I just completed the same meme on my blog! Please stop by and check it out:


  4. Frank's Red hot sauce...that sh*t is good on everything. I know I'm a day late, but I joined in. It was fun reading yours.

  5. Doritos and Frank's - 2 of my favorites and yet I never thought to put them together. Mmmmmmmmmm.

    Loved getting to know more about you.

  6. I still laugh when I think of all the trouble I have convincing my DH to go off the pill..... HA!

  7. Your blog header is so very sad - it speaks volumes about those struggling with IVF. The cooked egg with spoons is too funny - you're very creative.

  8. Just stumbled across your blog - I'm so sorry to hear about what you're going through. I love your take on it and how upbeat you are!

    I look forward to following...


  9. Via NCLM...this blog is super popular in the IF blogging world right now! It's perfect for NCLM visitors too! It's so hot even where we are, I can't imagine how hot it must be for you right now...best of luck in your journey, I hope your dreams come true soon!
