Hola Aurora,



Qué bueno! Hoy me apunto la 16: \"A balanced diet is a cookie in each hand\". Hace muchos días que estoy intentando autoconvencerme (sin éxito) que debo ponerme a dieta...



Un abrazo y gracias por compartirlo,

Ariadna

matches!!! Sep 25, 2002

\"3\" would be the one that my husband and I share.



\"10\" will be true in 10 days... I really need that trip!!!



\"13\" is what I feel right now... Gotta lose some weight before I ruin another pair of pants...



\"18\" is the perfect one for the moment... I\'ve just turned down a position at the city newspaper, since I\'m not gonna stay here for any longer (remember number \"10\"?)



\"25\" has just turned my motto... I\'ve been an extremely serious and worried child... Now that I\'ve met my match, I\'m a happy and self-confident young woman ;o)



THANKS FOR SHARING IT, AURORA!!!

Agree! Agree! Sep 25, 2002

Definitely!!!. We (Sags) are not born to be housewives, so are Gemini, Aquarius, Cancer and the rest of the horoscope. Is there anything less gratifying than that?



Au:

though 2 is coming too quickly for me, we are safe, for 25 is always on our road.



Very funny, thanks for it.



Hugs to everybody.

This "sag" thing is not true... Sep 26, 2002

My mother is a sag from head to toe and when she was eight months pregnant, she decided to quit her job and dedicate herself to me and, four years later, to my brother... Cooking, ironing, washing and cleaning, besides promoting \"cacerolazos\" when she would have her period (she says it was better for her to relieve her stress on the pans than on the kids!!!).



Now, talking about me... I\'m a Cancer and I\'ve never been too worried about the house, since my mom would do everything in the best possible way. But, after I got married, this incredible man you can see on the pic made me a new woman. I wanna cook, I wanna keep our house in order and I\'m gonna keep working for us to save some money and start having our children from 2007 on... As I said, I\'m a Cancer, he\'s a Libra, and we always plan things ahead... ;o)
