AF came on her own on day 32! Although her coming means this cycle is out, this does give me hope that she will continue to be regular, and I will be in a better position to predict! Hopefully her visit won't last long!
So today, we had a end of the year program and stress free stop for our students as they get ready for finals. Me and a couple of other advisors were sitting at the table when one of our students came over to us and showed us a door hanger she made. It had a girl name on there and a boy name on there. Long story short: She is 4 months pregnant, will find out the sex in Jan. As she is telling how she derived at the possible names, and how she has been feeling, and moving into a bigger apartment to accommodate . yada yada yada, I just stopped listening, and began singing a song in my head. I just can't believe it. Here I am sitting next to one advisor who just found out she was pregnant, and a student informs me that she is pregnant. I can't escape it.....
Although I have a top 10 list of all the places I want to visit in my life time; Paris, I certainly in my top 5. The history, the culture, the art, the food, the shopping, the fashion, etc...and I want to experience all of it!
I've never seen water so clear, yet so blue. Sitting here, I remember being totally at peace. The beauty was mesmerizing. When I look back at this picture from time to time, I feel calm and happy. I hope to go back there soon....
The good: I got offered the job! I will be the Education and learning Specialist. I am so overwhelmed. I have a month to figure out the move, Mooshkah's school, pack, and finish up things at work. YIKES!!!
The annoying: My co-worker just told me she is pregnant. It's so hard to put up a happy front, when all I can do is cringe on the inside. This is getting down right comical at this point. In the last 3 weeks, I 've heard about 6 pregnancy/baby announcements. I am totally in last place, if I am even in the race at all......
I stole this from a blog I was following, and its such a neat idea. I will start with the 30 day photo challenge, because who doesn't love photos????

H and I will be celebrating our first anniversary as husband and wife. The last few days I have been reflecting on the things I was doing a year ago, you know, running a million errands, finishing the last minute details, packing for the honeymoon, fussing about H not getting his haircut yet, extremely stressed, hoping everything goes smoothly. I can't believe we are here.
H - It has been an adventure this year, and I can't wait to see where life takes us in the future-together. I love you!
I was watching one of my favorite shows "The Office" last night, where the character Michael Scott was doing one of his "that's what she said" jokes. At that moment, it occurred to me how many times I was questioned about having a baby, or given unsolicited baby-making advice. I decided to create a "That's What She Said" edition to my blog........
