Fresh air!

I'll be getting some! I just booked flight for Mike and I to go visit our friends in Washington state. I've been looking forward to this trip since, oh, I last went up to visit them in February. I absolutely LOVE IT up there and am hoping that Mike will love it too. I'm pretty sure he will.

I really was thinking we weren't going to make it though. Thank god I have the greatest mom ever and she helped us out. As always. She's awesome. So, Merry Christmas in July to us!

It's really lightened up my mood to have this to look forward to. My brain just seems to be in a better place knowing that in a week, I'll be someplace that's green. And much cooler (literally). With water nearby. And really great friends. And a baby. Yaaay. I'm finally going to get to meet our Sarah and Zap's baby. For whatever reason, I'm really looking forward to that. Weird being that most other babies I see gives me a sadness attack. Maybe it's because I've known about Delaney from the beginning? Well, whatever, I can't wait to get up there.

Fertility news stands the same. cd16=high on CBEFM. I started the Provera again yesterday. This all seems so routine now that I just can't seem to get myself at all excited that we're actully trying to make a baby. My brain just says "uh huh. we're doing this again. nothing new." I think Einstein's quote just about sums it up - “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." But who knows, maybe our insanity will pay off this month.

And now, I'm off to get books from the library. I'm blowing through Janet Evanovich books like crazy. I've read the first six Stephanie Plum books in the past 4 days. Now, hopefully seven and eight are on hold for me at the library. I'm having withdrawls. Haha. This is *almost* as bad as Stephanie Meyer's Twilight series (anyone else holding their breath for August 2nd?). At least Janet Evanovich books were written for "grown ups." ;)

Yay for you getting away. I love WA and wouldn't mind moving back someday.
Oh, and I love Janet Evanovich. MIL gave me 10-13 for Christmas and she just bought 14 for herself. Aren't they great quick reads?!

And yes, the insanity will end!

I was just thinking about how wonderful a trip to Seattle would be (I've been watching Grey's Anatomy)~ it looks so pretty!!!

And so jealous that you get to go hang out with adorable Delaney.

You deserve a good time! :)

How fun! WA is one of the few states I haven't been to yet. Enjoy your trip and the baby!

I was laughing about Janet Evanovich. It took me about a week and a half to go through 2-14. I LOVE that series now! I had picked up the first one awhile ago, and didn't like it. Now I can't get enough. Isn't it nice to be a teacher and have some time to read in the summer?

Oh, I'm glad you're reading the Evanovich books (I probably just killed her name, sorry). I've wondered if I should read them or not, for years now. Maybe I'll read them next summer. I'm finally reading Eat, Pray, Love. I'm feeling a connection here and my desire to take a loooong vacation in Italy has flared back up. (I'm only at the end of the first section of the book.) Have fun in Washington.
