Stuck

So: I take birth control. I have 6 beautiful children from my adoring and wonderful husband. But 8 years ago we got stuck with this house. I wouldn't mind having another child if we had different choice in living quarters..but after this last baby I was sure I am done.

So the calculated date of my period was supposed to be today and I haven't had it. I may have not calculated right though because I didn't have a period the month before last and then got my period around the 20th of last month, when it was normally on the 18th, so yeah. I dunno whats going on. I suspect I'll get my period tomorrow or the next day. But wouldn't it be exciting if I was pregnant!? I hope so, but if not, there is always next month (:

I might have succeded

not ready yet (:

My mother-in-law sent my husband and I a Christmas card this year with money (as our gift) and a funny little note written at the bottom; "this is bribe money for grandchildren!" We both got a kick out of that. She told my husband over the phone a few days ago that she forgot to say what she had been wanting for Christmas. . .three guess as to what that was! Yep, a grandbaby.
