    Hi all! My name is Melissa and I'm going on 24. I am happily married to a soon-to-be CPA named Jordan who is also going on 24. We have an almost 2 year old little drama queen named Kaley. We live in Jacksonville, Florida. I was raised Southern Baptist and republican but I am now agnostic and pretty moderate mostly leaning Democrat these days. I am pretty much Democrat but I haven't been able to admit it yet. Blame it on how I was raised. My husband considers himself Libertarian. I cuss a lot, I am a wine *****, and I love to watch funny and scary movies. I am addicted to FB and I love to cook! I am currently a SAHM but every once in a while I help my friend out with her business. We just bought our first house and it's so exciting. We are getting the hang of landscaping and house projects. I have never seen snow and I have a horrible temper. Usually once a day I lock myself in a bathroom and put the shower on so I don't have to hear my daughter throw a fit over me not singing twinkle twinkle little star for the 802nd time before noon. Sometimes I put a little bit of Kahlua in my morning coffee too. I pretty much wear yoga pants 24/7 because I'm still trying to lose like 50 lbs that I gained when preggo. We don't want any more kids EVER. My dad passed of lung cancer in June and my mom is currently re-living her teenage years at the age of almost 50. I love hard rock, older country, and all kinds of other music. I like baseball, football, and softball. All of that + beer and I'm happy. I play softball for my husbands work and I am usually playing short stop or pitching. I stay up way too late and get up way too early. Story of my freaking life.

    Oops, sorry did not see I was supposed to post here first. This must have been added in my absence. I have read and agree

    I am Drake who just turned 29, married to my DH Finn for 6 years. We have one son hawkes who will be three next month and one on the way. We are currently both graduate students, but should be finishing our degrees soon. I am working on my masters in scientific illustration and am writing and illustrating a children's guide to midwestern streams. I want to write and illustrate children's nature/ science books when I finsih. DH is working on his PhD in wildlife ecology. he is looking at the effect of different grazing management strageies on grassland birds. He will be done this spring and hopes to teach at a private high school or a small teaching college. I do not get much time or hobbies between school and parenting but when I do I love to read, especially ya, fantasy, and chick lit and I am a quilter, knitter, and do crossstich and needle point. I love textile arts. We have two cats, Tequilla and Macey, a beta fish, and a hermit crab.

    As to my political leanings, I am way liberal and always have been and was raised by a very liberal family. I usually call myself liberal rather than Democrat since in general the democratic party is not liberal enough for me on certain issues such as gay rights. I used to registered Green until I moved to Iowa where I registered Democrat so I could participate in the caucauses. DH and I both born and raised Episocopalians from liberal churches so religion and my politics have never been a conflict for me.

    Hi, I'm Lauren and I am 28 and my Husband is Rob and he will be 30 on New Year's eve. We have one daughter, Isla, who was born April of 2009. I am a grad student and my husband is in advertising.

    I come from a EXTREMELY right wing family. Scary right wing. DH and I are both Democrats. My family is also extremely religious and DH and I are not (Atheist and Agnostic), so you can imagine how interesting our holidays are .

    I read and agree.

    I inadvertently butted in before introducing myself. I apologize for that.

    I'm a young widow (well, I'm not an old widow, anyhow) that has too much time on her hands and a ridiculous fascination for Constitutional law lately.

    My husband and I didn't have any children. I had a touch of cervical cancer when I was 26, and the surgery necessary to remove the cancer caused me to have an incompetent cervix. I could get pregnant, but I could never stay pregnant. After a few years and a lot of heartache, I resigned myself to the idea of being the "cool aunt" to all of my nieces and nephews, and not having any children of my own. I share my home with an elderly Cocker Spaniel. Yes, I'm one of those.

    I have a very dear friend who is having problems with polycystic ovaries, and I'm hoping that I will pick up some information that will help her conceive the baby she so desperately wants.

    Welcome Rose! Would you say you are a liberal or a democrat or both? I am a very liberal democrat.

    I am Mary (29 will be 30 in about 2 weeks). DH is 36. We are both democrat. I am more liberal than him. I grew up in a Lutheran democrat family. I like to refer to myself as a Christian. I am not a big believer in organized religion, although I will go to church. I would just prefer to worship in my own way. DH grew up in a very strict Assembly of God republican family. In fact even now, we do not really talk about politics as they think that our beliefs are wrong and theirs is right. I am far more liberal than the rest of my family. I believe that gays have a right to marry and have all the rights that straight couples do. I do not believe some lawmaker should be able to tell me what I can do with my body although I would never have an abortion. I like to tell my mother that she is the most Republican Democrat I have ever met, she is a extremely moderate.

    I am a HUGE fan of Big Bang Theory, Amazing Race, Big Brother, and Hell's Kitchen. DH and I just moved into my Grandparents house. You might as well say that we own it without having the papers to show that we do yet. We have been TTC for seven years with no luck. We both are managers at Wendy's and if all works out well we will both be going back to college in the fall of 2011. I am going to be going to school to be a Certified Nurse Midwife and DH is going to study Auto Mechanics.

    I think I have rambled enough. Any questions, feel free to ask!! Looking forward to getting to know you ladies!!

    Hi everyone! My name is Donna. I am a SAHM living in So. Cal. I am originally from Arizona, so as you can guess I have a lot of republican friends and family. I would consider myself a moderate with a left lean, but lately I just can't find anything on the right that I agree with. It just gets crazier and crazier.

    I was raised Catholic, and it was at my Catholic high school (12th grade government) that I realized I was not a republican like I had claimed for so long. It was also there that I figured out that I believe in God but not organized religion, much to the chagrin of my family.

    My husband is a social liberal, fiscal conservative, but we agree on every issue usually. He is also a lawyer, so he knows constitutional law better than I do so he is a good source of information for me when I need clarification. He is also an AMAZING husband and father, I have no idea how I got so lucky.

    I am obsessed with gay marriage rights, universal health care, reasonable governmental regulation of corporations, University of Arizona basketball, my family and Buffalo Wild Wings. I love listening to and downloading new music from itunes, but when I am in the car I usually stick to Progressive talk radio. Gotta love Stephanie Miller. I have a bachelors degree in Business Marketing and Early Childhood Education.

    I guess that is all for now. Oh also, I am super sarcastic and am currently trying to design a sarcasm font.

    I leave you with this quote from George Clooney:

    "For some reason, we've gotten to this place where liberal is a bad word again, which is truly insane. Look at American history. Start with the Salem witch hunt. The conservative view was, "Well, they're all witches and they should be burned at the stake." But the liberal view was, "Maybe there aren't any such things as witches." Liberals thought that women should be allowed to vote. We thought it'd be okay for blacks to sit at any lunch counter they wanted and wherever they liked on a public bus. We thought that'd be all right. We've always been on the right side of history eventually. So I don't understand how you lose the moral argument."

    Hey ladies! My name is Pam. I am excited to (re) join this board. I have been on p.org for a long time. I've been on the TTC boards, the loss, boards, and the pregnancy boards. I have posted on this board on and off. But, I'll admit, it has been quite awhile.

    Let's see . . . what can I tell you about myself? I have been married to my husband, Rob, for 12 years. I have three children: Jackson (7), Camille (3), and Kaitlyn (1). We live in southwest Ohio. I am a lawyer and Rob is an in home salesman at Lowe's. He has a degree in building construction management. He used to be a project manager for a commercial construction company until he got laid off.

    As far as my political leanings, I am very far left wing. I am probably a socialist. I am, however, a life long democrat. I've never voted for a republican for any national office. I have voted for a handful of republicans for local judges. But, that was only because I personally knew the candidates and knew the republican would be the better judge.

    I was totally pro-Hillary during the democratic primaries in the last election. I did, however, vote for Obama in the general election. But, I am disappointed in Obama on so many levels. It will be hard for me to vote for him again.

    I am also an atheist. My Dh, however, wants the kids to go to church. So, you may catch me taking them. *sigh* Marriage is all about compromise, huh?

    I never knew until that moment how badly it could hurt to lose something you never really had. - Missed Miscarriage at 10 weeks - 3/26
