I have a bloggy friend (non adoption/IVF or the ilk) whose husband is deployed to the Middle East. He's 3/4 of the way done and was home for two weeks before Thankgiving. They have 2 kids under the age of 3.

She's pregnant.

In TWO weeks she managed to get knocked up!!!

Good Choice!

I am VERY happy with our facilitator, C. She called today because she knows the holidays can be tough. She wanted to wish us a happy holidays, find out if we had any travel plans that might affect being able to contact us (ha!), and give us a mini update. We went active Aug 9th. We've been shown 14 times. Four of those were new emoms. Only one of them has made a match with anyone. I guess I d0n't need to call her for an update this month!

My birthday party was lovely :-) I spent yesterday in a bed. We had a heck of a good time packed into 4.5 hours! Now we're currently waiting to see if we're getting this blizzard that is predicted. It's to start after midinght tonight. 100% of snow for Tuesday with 6 - 13" of snow by Wednesday night with 40 mph winds. I better check our grocery supply!

A New Day

Things are looking up. There's a light skiff of fresh, pure white snow covering the dead grass. Christmas lights are twinkling and I'm inhaling homemade chex mix and advent calendar chocolates! I'm also listening to Vanessa Williams' Christmas album Star Bright which has to be one of my all time favorites.

Mr H is throwing me a birthday party tomorrow night where wine and appetizers will be flowing.

Distract distract distract. That's the key around here ladies!
