5 Things you Don't Know About Me.

buddha bellyWow, I go away for a day and get memed twice!  Just when I thought the rain was letting up!

I'm participating in the Active Rain Mini-Meme. To fulfill the requirements of the game I have to tag 3 new people and to tell you all 5 things about myself that no one knows. 

For those of you who don't know what a meme is (neither did I until this morning).  According to Mary McKnight who was the inspiration for this community building tool: 

It's a thought stream carried from one person to another, or, to be more precise, a "unit of cultural information transferable from one mind to the other," so says Wikipedia. Basically, it's the blogging equivalent of a chain letter.  The cool thing about blogging is that the meme can be tracked. Entire websites are devoted to doing just that.

I'm tagging:                                                                                           My 35 week Buddha Belly

My responses are:

1.  I was home schooled for most of my primary shcool education- 3rd through 8th grade. 
2.  I used to compete as an ice skater, and later taught figure skating to Neil Bush's children (President Bush's neice and nephew).
3.  I was accpeted into medical school and was planning on going right after I took a year off to 'recuperate' from undergrad.  It never happend.  I moved to England instead to start my own business selling machinery into the packaging industry. 
4.  I almost married my high school sweetheart when I was 22 years old.  We had been together over 7 years at that point.  About 1 month before the wedding I freaked and backed out.  The invitations had been sent, deposits paid.  At the time it was traumatic, but now all I can say is PHEW!  My parents were very understanding and supportive: they said better to cancel a wedding than to get a divorce later; HOW TRUE!  The funny thing is that I still ended up getting married twice!  My husband is British, so we got married (on paper) the 10th of Feb. 2003 to speed the immigration process, and the second time (the ceremony) on the 25th of May 2003. 
5.  My second daughter Eloise was born at home (with the aid of a midwife) after 5 hours of labor.  I'm a pretty 'hippy' mom, so experiencing natural childbirth was important to me.  I found it to be both a wonderful and empowering experience (with both my girls!).

Thats all folks!

My first post to this particular group...

Love the belly. What a happy place to keep a baby!

I homeschooled my son for a few years, when I wasn't working, and now he is doing an online school, Junior year in HS.  It's going okay. The ciricullum (how do you spell that?) isn't really challenging, but he can work at his own pace, and that was key for us.

Anyway, glad to find you all and a beautiful Buddha belly.

Love the belly!!!!!!

 

Homeschooling - I seriously considered doing it with my kids - that was before I had them.

If we have a 4th - still undecided - I'd like to to a home birth.  We had planned it for our 2nd (which also turned out to be our 3rd) - Identical Twins - who ended up being high risk so I had to let go of my dream for a home birth.  I did however give birth without drugs to the first twin - Can we say "ring of fire!!" and unfortunately had an emergency section for the second twin.

Jessica - I used to live in Denver in the 70's and our vision of Boulder was a college town filled with Berkeley type hippies. Now I know it is true! You are a brave woman and my hat's off to you for the birth thingy. Nice getting to know you!!!

Love the belly! When I was pregnant with my 4th, I made a belly cast out of plaster of paris. Alot of people thought it was more than strange. I enjoyed reading your post!
