I'm probably get into reading the book during the summer. That's when I think I'll take more pics at the lake and such.
Mimi...sorry you are having problems sleeping. Maybe it's a "sign" :) I am the world's lightest sleeper. I can fall back asleep pretty easily. I've kind of had to learn to since DH's pager goes off at all hours of the night. If it's in the middle of the night and he has to go in to the ER, he'll just stay the rest of the night there so he doesn't bother me. I slept really good last night. I don't think I woke once.
Jenni...hope you are doing well.
Good morning! Thanks for the kind words about well me ;) I had originally wanted to do 100 facts but decided that people probably wouldn't want to read that many things about me. I might go back and add a few things every now and then. At the time that I did it, the only people who read my blog were friends and family that probably knew more than half of that stuff anyway. As I have gotten braver about talking about our journey, more "strangers" are reading. I even linked up to a pretty popular "Mommy blogger" a few months ago. It's pretty scary putting yourself out there (especially with my history of non-existant self-esteem) so I really do appreciate the kind words.
I'm sorry about the sleeping problems Mimi. I hope that it's a sign of good things to come!!
Meg - are you "batching it up" yet (what I call it when DH is out-of-town and I'm a batchlorette for a few days)?
I'm sorry for the headaches but glad that you figured out the cause. It's a fine balance between subtle fragrances and those with the more chemical smell.
Speaking of reading, what do y'all think about a board book club? I've always wanted to join one and it seems that we all like to read. We could decide on a book and talk about it. Thoughts?
I'm in! :D

That game sounds like a blast. I LOVE board games and try to wrangle DH to play with me but more often than not he won't. A few Christmas' ago my parents gave us a few of the classics (i.e. Scrabble, Clue, etc). I asked to play with DH's Ipod all the time to play some of the games on there. That's one of the things I'm looking forward to is getting to play games w/ our kids. For the last few Christmas' my brother, his GF, DH, and my dad have had "Family Fun Night" where we play "A Christmas Story Monopoly." The first time we played it it took over 4 hours because my bro's GF had never played Monopoly before. I know - I was shocked too.
Yay Mimi!! Maybe I'll put a post on the main board and see if others are interested too?
Jenni, when is your beta tomorrow? When will you find out? I'll say extra prayers tonight :)
Thanks. It's at 8am tomorrow. I'm going to POAS in the morning. DH and I have completely flipped on what we think the outcome will be. He is now thinking that it's not looking too good and I'm more optimistic (that's what Dr. Google will do to you :rolleyes:). I'm now afraid that DH is right and I'll be even more crushed tomorrow. But we will just have to wait and see. Absolutely nothing I can do about it now. :shrug:
And a slight rant - I'm already seeing the ads for the dreaded upcoming holiday that I would gnaw my left arm off to be a part of. You know, the one in May that feels like a slap in the face. It's everywhere and I'm afraid that it's only going to get worse. I think this year will be harder since I was [this close] to being able to join in. Sorry. Just had to get that off my chest.
I am actually feeling very optimistic about your results. I just have a "feeling," KWIM?
I used to feel really bad on that big May holiday, but ever since we got Roxie I feel like "Roxie's Mom" :D Plus DH is a total dork, he insist on bringing me breakfast to bed. However, he requires a beer with foot massage on Father's Day :ROFL: Funny thing is he doesn't drink, ever!
Thanks!! We'll see. Your DH is so sweet. Unfortunately we all know how DH feels about presents anyway so tough work convincing him that I can participate in a holiday honoring something that *technically* I am not. National Infertility Week starts Sunday. Do you think that anyone will send me a card for that instead? :ROFL: I really wish that we could just "escape" for the day but DH's extended family (that doesn't know about our journey) wouldn't be very understanding.
Hi ladies!! I've been gone all day shopping. I met my mom for lunch also. The weather here has been horrible all day. It's either been raining or down-pouring. Our pond is overflowing. I guess we won't be pumping water from the creek soon.
Jenni...good luck tomorrow. I'll be thinking about you. I hate Dr. Google. I've convinced myself so many times that I've had cancer. I swear if my DH wasn't a doctor I'd be in the doctor's office constantly with complaints and worries. Even when my husband tells me there is nothing wrong with me I don't believe him and he gets frustrated. I view him as my husband, not a doctor.
Mimi...how was your day? Did you make it through with little sleep?
