3rd Annual Girls Weekend

was this past weekend, this time around at my house in Santa Monica. We had a great time sipping wine, talking, hiking, eating, kayaking and more.. In the past years we have been many girls getting together for this annual trip, but this time around it was just 4 of us, as a majority of the old gang now have kids and therefore understandably - can't travel. It's amazing the difference though. The 4 of us were perfectly content not going out clubbing dancing all night, rather staying in at night and acting like old ladies watching movies and playing cards. I love that feeling of not having that stress though. Gosh, I would hate to be in my 20's again...yuk.

BTW - 33 days since the start of my last cycle. I am taking my test tonight. :-)

I don't know if I even believe that you can "jinx" things that you wish for. That's right - 28 days. I told Tom about it yesterday and he asks me not to think about it too much. OK, yeah, I'll try not to do that!

But I know why he feels that way..this happened once before when I was late (irregular) and he started talking about baby names. And then I had my period...I know he doesn't want to go through that again. It made him sad, I could tell.

So he went this morning for his second swimmer test and will get the results in a couple of days. My hope is that they'll be healthy, fast and lots of them. Like Tuna.

Pulled My Neck

26 days..if I make it to 30, I will go get a test :-)

On Sunday me and Tom had planned to take our long weekend walk on the beach. As I was getting out of the shower, I turned my head upside down to make a turban-head with the towel (you know what I mean). As I went back up I pulled my neck so I actually heard something "click". And after that I was completely immobilized. I couldn't sit nor lay down. So Tom put the boogie board behind me in the bed so I would have some support. Not a bad idea. Other than that, it was all Advil, tiger balm and Flight of the Concords all weekend. I am better today, but I can't really look to the left which made my drive to work..adventurous! I wish I hadn't parked behind that wall in the garage though.

Recession Scheshmession

22 days and counting. I know It's not going to happen because I can't even sleep on my belly because of soreness in my boobs.

But now to something completely different (insert drumroll sound here): Tom was laid off yesterday!

It keeps getting better and better. I just spoke with him and he is ut drinking with his colleagues. It's good to celebrate the recession with a bang! Yay - we joined another set of statitics (insert applause here)

20 Days..

It's now been 20 days since the start of my last cycle, so in my irregular cycle-land, this is the time when I start getting hopeful and nervous. I feel somewhat of a PMS coming on (boobs sore/short fuse) but then again, I sort of feel like that all the time. I'm going to attribute that to being a normal 31-year old woman.

Tom is going in on Friday for his second swimmer test, and I am hoping that his last result was just a bad report card due to late night procrastination at work...

One of my dear friends is somewhat in a similar situation that we are, they have been trying for the same amount of time. She emailed me this morning and told me that her period came. I feel bad for her because I know what that's like. On a positive note though, I have this lame fairytale fantasy that her and I will get pregnant at the same time and that our babies will grow up and go to Swedish day care together. Strange how we are designed, isn't it?

Toms fear of Babies

I think Tom is no longer afraid of babies. He is very good with kids age toddler and up, but babies that do not communicate with him so he can understand it have been scary creatuers to him. Until now I think. Our god daughter Hailey, 9 months, is just a great baby. She is happy, cute and easy to please - the perfect introduction for Tom who thinks that babies can "break".

I beleive that this is a start of a great love affair. On Saturday night I told him how much I am going to miss them when they go back to Chicago. To that he responded "I know - I love them too". Busted!
