I love tests that I know the answers to. Who doesn't? I can only wish that the 2 take home tests I have to do for school today are as easy as the test that my lovely lillypie counter is suggesting. I, of course, know the answer to that one. No need to rush out to the drugstore. Those little sticks can stay on the shelf for another month. I have broken the 70+ day record. Do I get a prize if I hit 100?

I made it! I made it through hosting my first thanksgiving. Believe it or not, nothing burned, no one got food poisoning and people were actually on their best behavior. (I am sure the multiple bottles of wine had something to do with it). Everything went great! The southern inspired fried turkey and pecan pie were a huge hit with the Cali in-laws. We even pawned off all of the leftovers!

Now, I am exhausted but trying to crank through the last few school assignments so that I can really get into the holiday spirit!

I think I'm going to like it here

Today hubby hurt himself playing soccer AGAIN. He is fine, but on crutches. This is maybe his 5th soccer injury in the last year. I stopped having sympathy for him serveral injuries ago (bad wife). So now I am trying to make a dent in this massive paper that I have due and all I hear is "honey can you get me....?"

Aaaaaahhhhhh!I have offically entered the gates of crazy, and I think I am going to like it here. Anyone want to join me?

Stupid turkey

Who's idea was to host 20 people at my house for thanksgiving?!? Oh, right...MINE.
What the @#!#! was I thinking?? I have a TON of work to do for school, including a 20 page paper. I have work/class all next week until Wednesday at 5pm. I spent last night cleaning my house, this morning moving furniture, and I have yet to figure out what exactly I am going to make. I should get to the grocery store (along with everyone else in the state) and buy stuff before it is all sold out, but did I mention that I have a ton of work to do?
Did I also mention that I woke up this morning with cold and I feel like crap? And then to top it all off hubby told me that I ordered the "wrong" tables for the dinner and he couldn't understand why anyone would order the ones I did. I of course told him all about the order when I placed it... 2 MONTHS AGO!! I am so glad he went elsewhere to watch football today, because I was already standing on the edge of crazy and he was pushing me right over!!
Next time I get a crazy idea like this, could someone please intervene.

I wish

Don't get too excited. My arbitrary ovulation counter is displaying my wishful thinking. I am on day 60 something. I don't even look anymore. I just take the temp andrealize that it is the same as the last MILLION days. I will keep you posted if there are any changes.

Can I ask Santa for an ova?

The Holidays are upon us

The holidays are here.
Oh sh*t.
I have a husband that LOVES presents (8 for Hannukah, 1 for Christmas, and 1 for his January 30th birthday)!!
The problem is that he doesn't like NORMAL presesnts and he needs Nothing. Shopping for this man gives my an ulcer every year. I know, you say that I have plenty of time to think about this stuff, but my schedule is already booked through January! I have school, work, thanksgiving prep, baby showers, holiday parties, travel, and all the other stuff that comes with life.

I am trying to NOT wait until the last minute (although I am sure that is what will ultimatly happen) Any suggestions? If you happen to think of anything good between now and any of the winter holidays please let me know. Thanks!
