Amy's Answers to questions you asked

1) Michael answered this below and yes we did meet online and I am glad we have an unsual story!

2) I hate to start with the worst parts of marriage because there are few but its the change. When you wait as long as I did to get married, you have your patterns. There is a period of adjustment which has lasted a while.. The best thing is you have a permanent best friend. YOu have someone that wants to do thing with you, someone that knows you so well, its crazy..I love it. Being married to Michael has brought our both of our strengths and weaknesses Believe me, Michael and I have had some struggles but I think we come out stronger. Marriage rocks!

3) I think he answered this I am 32, he is 36 physically.Mentally I am quite younger

4)My favorite book of all time is a piece of Christian Fiction called Pretense by LOri Wick. I give copies out during my contests on my other blog. Its very long and it is a great story..Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers is another good one!

5) Why is the wait so long? FOr what I have heard and read, its not the amount of orphans or babies in china its getting the paperwork done for them.
YOu have heard me mention paper ready babies and this is what I am talking about. I do not know whats taking so long in getting the paper work done!!
6)OK~will I EVER finish nursing school?? And, will I EVER get to take the NCLEX...and PASS??
this is from Eric and Heather-- OH I hope so, its best job and you have so many options
7)How many children total would you like to have?
My desire was to have 3-4 but I think MIchael and I would like 2. I really want LynnMarie to have a sibling. Praying for that now
8)Are there particular chores in your house that are assigned to each of you?
Not really. I tend to do the kitchen more and MIchael does it while I am working. Michael is really good at cleaning bathrooms..At the moment, its pretty equal
9)What did you like least about living in Orlando?Which area of nursing is your preference? Do you prefer working in a hospital or privately?
a) the traffic plus all the Disney stuff was nearby and I did not go much
b) I work in pediatric craniofacial/neuro now and I love it
c)I have only worked in the hospital but would love to try hospice sometime
10)Who does most of the cooking and grocery shopping in the house?When you go somewhere who normally drives?Who sits down and pays your bills?
We both share cooking and grocery shopping but I think I do the most cooking. Michael always drives. We talked about this once. Still dont know why. Michael pays all the bills. I really should be involved but I am not (yet)

11)Will you go back to China for your second child?
My heart is open to anything. I do desire 2 children and I the doors are opened to that, then I will walk through them. I have learned not to fear or worry. I think about the wait, the money and things like that. It is an option

Keep the questions coming!

Yep I agree with you, it's having your best friend with you all the time.
Marriage takes work...nobody told me that at the beginning, I know that now and that's what makes us stronger.

I set myself back 1 year due to moving back to Atlanta and transfering to KSU (a GREAT move back to a GREAT city). Now I'm set back another 2 semesters (I took the spring off because we might have been traveling to get Lily Bean (we didn't travel until May) then I took the summer off to have bonding time) again another GREAT decision with no regret 'cause it's been awesome....now~I'm back in class in 3 weeks at KSU. I tend to get test anxiety and it's been a while since a nursing exam.

UGH!

Oh yea--I wonder if Lily will have a bone graph to close her fistula.

And so we sit in the Waiting Room ........

I have read both of your favorite books, but Redeeming Love is my very favorite!! I borrowed it several years ago, but am thinking about going to buy it so I can read it again and have my own copy.

nikki said...

Yep, marriage can be a shock to the system, but I agree that it totally rocks!

I've never read Lori Wick's book, but "Redeeming Love" is my all time favorite!

Hang in there! Nursing is so rewarding :)

Those are some fun questions!
I like Lori Wick too.

I loved living in Orlando but traffic was such a nightmare! I lived near downtown and worked at Disney - UG

Lisa said...

Just dropped by to say Hello!
Asking questions....what fun. You are brave.
Who does most of the cooking and grocery shopping in the house?
When you go somewhere who normally drives?
Who sits down and pays your bills? I do this at my house and I hate this job. ;(

Mentally, you are quite younger...I think that is an understatement - and one of the reasons you are fantabulous! :) Love you!
