    Hum, I have lots -- some I used to do before kids and hope to again! I read, cook, bake, cross stitch, scrapbook/stamping, photography, travel, etc. I don't know if I have a favorite per say.

    I play the violin, mainly traditional music, not classical. I don't get enough time to play since I met DH and had DS though. I like watching films and travelling and still do lots of that. I read and like doing historical research. I also enjoyed knitting when I was pregnant the first time, so can see myself doing a bit more of that if things go well

    I like reading in spurts. I jst started the second happiness project book " happier at home", and can see myself liking it as much as the first. I also like crafting and doing small home improvements..... DH has to bail me out sometimes as i quickly get in over my head though. I am learning to sew, slowly, thanks to MIL... She is quite good. I think i will do more sewing projects as the weather turns cooler later on.

    Reading, gardening, playing piano, hiking, kayaking - some things have been harder to do on regular basis since DS but hopefully as he (and this little one) get older I can start doing them more

    Have you looked into some of the digital pianos? I just got a Yamaha Clavinova after being piano-less for several years. Our house is not large and this piano is pretty slim and looks like an upright. I was so sure I wanted acoustic piano only but DH convinced me to try some digitals in the store and this one had nice sound output, feel, and appearance. I like that I can use headphones when DS is sleeping. Another bonus is that I will not have to pay for piano tunings in the future

    I haven't really thought about this too much. I had one growing up and was extremely unimpressed even at age 10 with it. I might give it a try. But I am slightly reluctant to. DH is looking for a new job in the Cypress, Texas area and the homes there are much larger. We are in 1000 square feet now and are looking at 2000+ homes currently

    I know what you mean about feeling reluctant. I was so worried I would end up with something that looked and felt like an electronic keyboard, but it wasn't the case at all. And now I have a piano that looks like an upright and sounds like a grand piano...it's awesome. Hopefully when you find a larger place, you will also find a piano you love
