Here's to a great year, full of family, friends, love, baby-makin' fun, simple cups of tea, flares, accomplishments, ups, downs and all the in-betweens.  Here's to being wiser, gaining strength and letting go of some crap.  Here's to wishes and dreams, and not letting go of them.  Here's to boat-loads of birthday cake from some amazing people.

I'm determined that my 32nd year, which starts today, will be the best one I've yet to see :)  Much love and peace, friends!

Morning Conversation

Scene: Me sitting, N coming over to say hi.

Me:  "Morning!"

N:  "Good morning, are you putting on weight?"

Me: "YES."

N:  "Are you pregnant?"

Me:  "NO."

N:  "Oh, I thought you were going to tell me you were pregnant.  Cause you're putting on weight."

Me:  "Nope, not pregnant."

N:  "OH!  Guess what??   So-and-so is in labour!  It's so exciting!!!"

Wham, bam, schlam.  Three for one.  YES, I have gained weight.  NO, despite trying for 15 cycles I am still not pregnant.  OH, everyone else is pregnant and having their babies??   THAT'S GREAT.

Note:  I have only slightly altered this conversation.  There was a side conversation about going to the bank after I said good morning, and the story about the labouring woman was wayyyy longer than I depicted.  Other than that, it is nearly word for word.  Such is my life.
