I am planning to clean my house - for real, this time. For the sake of my own accountability, I will note here that that requires the following: (1) wash remaining dishes. (2) clean counters. (3) sweep bedroom and laundry room. (4) wash kitchen floor. Maybe living room too. (5) do load of laundry. (6) meditate on eggplant on the bottom of the oven.
A coworker (not in my exact office) is 8 1/2 months along and there was an office shower for her the other day. I first heard of it three minutes before it started, and duly marched upstairs to a break room where they had done a lovely job with the decorations and the snacks. The gal in the office next to mine, who is a few years older than I am but married January 08, mentioned that she'd like to have kids but is waiting till she gets in a little better shape (I wanted to tell her not to wait, but I kept quiet). Then she asked me whether we were interested in having kids soon. Maybe she did it in a specially non-invasive manner, but I just responded that we had been happy to have kids since law school, but it just hadn't happened yet, and I figured I would see a doctor in case there was some medicine I needed to take. And she nodded as if that made sense. It wasn't so bad at all. Maybe this isn't so terrible...
Although my Monday annual exam was postponed due to the snowstorm, they were kind enough to reschedule it for Friday (yesterday), my day off. All went well - have you ever had a totally painless PAP smear? Seriously. My specialist appointment is in three weeks or so. We'll see how that goes. I'm accumulating more and more endo symptoms (BAD), but I'm behaving and getting myself to the doctor. What I really want is to see an end to all this - not a baby (that would be fine also), but a resolution. No more waiting and uncertainty. A simple, straightforward, rest of my life. And maybe that will happen.
More amusing lolz - again apropos (and because I have to show off, these look like pure-bred Abyssinians to me):
