San Diego, CA -- Imperial Beach -- July 18, 2007

Reading Pregnancy for Dummies, by Joanne Stone, MD; Keith Eddleman, MD; and Mary Duenwald. She's five weeks pregnant. Her husband is playing Tetris--addictive, he says. Though, he's also reading the Pregnancy for Dummies book, just not all the way through like she is. He looks for the interesting parts. Right now she's reading about what she's experiencing now--cramps, fatigue, nausea, constipation. Fun!

They have several Dummies, books that have made it through several moves--her husband is in the Navy--including Home Buying for Dummies, Raising Ferrets for Dummies, and Digital Photography for Dummies. The authors, they said, are geniuses.

Before this she was reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

What will they read their kids? Her husband suggested The Poky Little Puppy, by
Janette Sebring Lowrey, which he grew up on; Grimm's fairy tales; and Aesop's fables.

His favorite book--The Stand, by Stephen King.

If she wrote a book what would it be about? An autobiography. She is the youngest child and her older brothers had hemophilia and contracted the AIDS virus. One died when she was ten, the other when she was twelve.
