You're just cool!! :o) I love these posts! I think it's so much fun seeing what people have done. BTW, I loved your last post about the baby feelings!! I totally get you.... I am the same way. If I could have a normal pregnancy, I would have another baby in a heartbeat!! My pregnancies just got harder and harder...and I had the toxemia, pre-eclampsia...and all the crazy complications, too. I especially loved the bed rest and the throwing up every single day, too. Oh yeah...and the weight gain EACH time got worse and worse... It was just a riot. :o) Jason just had a surgery though last week. It was kinda sad for me...'cause it made it pretty positive that I wouldn't have another baby. I know I'm done...but it's still hard. I don't know if that makes ANY sense. I'm hoping someone will just give me another one someday... Seriously. I have already looked into foster care. I'm a dork, I know....but I have those same feelings you do. Go with your heart... You and Ben are great parents, and your kids are so lucky to be loved as much as they are. Plus, they're pretty darn cute!! :o) BTW, I did get your message the other day. I listened to it the day before Thanksgiving...and it was a crazy day. I figured I'd call you after the holiday...but I'm just a scatterbrained mess!! ha ha We would love to get together. It would be fun to talk in PERSON. :o) Hope your Thanksgiving was a good one!! Sorry for the monster long comment!!

I'm not sure I could bungee jump either. I think it sounds fun. But there is something genetically programmed in me to avoid things that might kill me. Weird, I know.
