Skipping a month

We skipped January, mostly to give J's body a chance to heal, and because we were in Mexico for 2 weeks, and we would have spent almost the ENTIRE trip waiting for a positive or negative. We were in Puerto Vallarta, which is perfectly safe in terms of water and food, but I always worry about picking up a bug. I didn't want to have to worry about potential fetus friend while we were on vacation, so we just skipped it. A great decision. We lost a month (which also came with the pregnancy announcement for a friend, which resulted in J being in tears because she's getting frustrated), but we're back on and ready to start up again next week.

Andddd the fun begins again!

Happy New Year!

My ringing in the new year consisted of wearing scrubs, cuddling an adorable (and very happy) NICU baby, while wearing a party had and drinking bubbly apple juice. I called J at midnight. Wasn't particularly exciting, but I was happy to do it.

2011 has been a lovely year for us! We got married, made big plans, are started TTC. We don't have a baby quite yet, but I feel that it is near, very much on the horizon. I am learning to be patient, that it will come.

In the meantime I'm making myself a post-night shift sleep dinner (consisting of rice, lentils and squash! I might even make a salad, I'm so decadent!).

We've been working on ripping all of our CD's onto an external HD so that we aren't hauling them around with us when we move. This means when I hit "play" and "shuffle" on iTunes, the resulting mix is *extremely* eclectic. It's rather entertaining.

2012 promises to be even bigger, since we will hopefully have our first little one, and we're definitely moving in a couple of months. We're adults now and got ourself pre-approved for a mortgage (it's a little one, comparatively, since I have no desire to waste my baby's newborn period working OT to pay for the mortgage).
