Where were you born? San Diego, CA

What brought you to SHARE? The premature birth and demise of our third baby boy. I found a printed page about the Share Your Story site in his baby bundle from the hospital.
What do you like to do in your spare time? In my spare time, I'm mostly with my boys and hubby. With the hot temps, we use our pool quite a bit. When I'm not being Mom and it's just me, I like to wake up early and catch an old movie classic. I like to browse and shop sites for this and that while drinking a cup of my favorite whole bean House Blend. I tend to clean a lot. I like a clean and organized home and it helps me deal with stress. I answer posts on the Share Your Story site which I think is helping me heal in some ways. In addition to March of Dimes events, my family volunteers with United Blood Services and KidsWithAutismCan
What is your favorite book/author and why? Right now, I'm reading "Turning Tables" by Teresa Giudice. Something to read in a clinic lobby while one of my kids has therapy. I've read a couple of the "Real Housewives" books. I'm fascinated and it's a mini escape.
If you could travel anywhere in the world on vacation where would it be? I would LOVE to take one of those Viking cruises! I want to take my kids to Germany to meet my host family. I met them in '97. My husband and I got to travel to see them in '99. The kids, now adults with families themselves, have visited us in 2001 and 2004. I think we need to do a few more plane rides and of course save up. My host-Mom is a teacher due to retire soon. This actually might be something in our near future. Probably not the Viking cruise, but flying there and being able to stay for a few weeks. And... it's only 2 hours to Strasbourg, France! Oui, oui, my other love:)
Favorite Childhood memory? I'm glad that I spent time with my grandparents. My elementary school was year round, so I'd spend a week or two at their home in Ramona, CA. It's so pretty out there, kind of like being in the country:) I have memories of playing board games with them, cards, watching their programs, and going "into town" for errands. I still remember the line up: Murder She Wrote, Matlock, MacGyver. I'd politely listen to my grandmother telling me stories that never seemed to end. They were filled with details though:) I realize where I get it from and hope to still remember it all when I'm the age she was.
Everyone had a favorite teacher while in school who was yours and why? I do remember all of my teachers' names, but my favorite is Marilyn B. She was my high school French teacher and has become my friend and colleague. I consider her "my second mother from Ohio." I was already studying French before high school, but she taught me so much more. She also chaperoned the student exchange I participated in. The experience made such an impression on me that I got a degree in Secondary Ed!
What kind of music do you love? I love all kinds of music. :) Love to sing along, but the backseat doesn't appreciate it.
Lindsay, I love knowing more about you. You have been on here to help support all of us through the years and we appreciate it. I wish you lived closer so you could teach me more about history and our boys could play together. We could introduce new foods in such a fun way!
Lindsay - I am so grateful for everything you do on Share and all the advice and insight you have given me over the years! I'm reading Turning Tables too! Guilty pleasure, but actually pretty fascinating. I cried when she had to leave her girls. I hope you get to take your trip to Germany soon!
It is always so lovely to read more about the people we all feel like we already 'know'. Thank you so much, Lindsay, for all that you do and for sharing just a little more about yourself.
Lindsay, you rock! I enjoyed learning more about you, and am looking forward to seeing you next week!
I loved your answers. Especially about how the back seat doesn't appreciate it. I'm only allowed to sing very specific parts. I can't wait to see you in less than a week!!!!!!
I miss you Lindsay! Hugs and love, Aimee
you have little critics too in the backseat when you sing...I get told that he is trying to listen to music pleeeaase be quiet. =) Hope you make it to Germany soon! Nicki
