Very sorry to hear about the miscarriages.

Thanks. Enough time has gone by that the memories don't cut like they used to. I didn't know if I should list it but it's had a huge impact on who I am and to leave it out felt like denial. Bringing children into the world is amazingly complicated and it's really a marvel that any of us are here. The kid I do have is also amazing and I'm very lucky to have her.

Several people seem to be down on ironing. Me, I've solved that problem by ironing maybe three times in my life.

US CONGRESS!!@! *shakes fist*

Ironing is the one bit of housework I will gladly pay someone else to do. I inevitably iron ALL the extra creases where they don't go as well as my fingers or I get tangled in the dang cord.

I HATE cleaning the bathroom esp the toilet. Give me ironing anytime. Come and do my bathroom and I'll do your ironings :))

I like your job title.

You know, sprouts are good for you! lol

I think we should all be encouraged to write with both hands as you never know when you're going to need it. Only right handed for me though.

Haha. X-rays. Never thought about tit in a wringer as one before. lol Maybe I've been lucky as it's only the two T's for me.

So sorry to hear about the miscarriages. *hugs* But great to hear you have a lovely daughter. :)

Thanks, she's a great kid. Left-hand writing by a righty comes in handy when leaving notes back from Santa or the Tooth Fairy.

Brussel sprouts are EVOL!
