Even though I don't have any of my Christmas shopping done yet, I'm in a fantastic mood. The party Friday was a pretty quiet affair, wimps not wanting to drive after getting 18" of snow! *g*

Saturday morning was the best morning I've had in a long time. I woke up and realized I had no pressing deadlines - school is finished for the term, I got my latest project at work more or less complete, and I had no plans that day. So for the rest of the weekend I read. Two books actually, both by Charles Sheffield; 'Between the Strokes of Night' and 'Mind Pool'. Then, I watched 3 movies: To Have and Have Not, Caddyshack, and Blade Trinity. Loved Blade! So much better than the second one. I fell asleep during Caddyshack, so had to re-watch it, and had a good giggle, thinking I'd have loved to be on the set with them when they were filming. I'm sure it was a riot.

Oh, I've also been knitting like a madwoman. I'm almost finished a hoodie (well if you count that it has no arms, I might be a bit delusional on that one.) I think I only have 3 pairs of socks to go.

Had our team lunch yesterday at The Works - if you're ever in Ottawa, awesome gourmet burgers - and they do organic, reg beef, veg, chicken and I think ground turkey too. I had the Spartacat - avacado, gouda and bacon - mmm!

Last night I had all these great plans for what I wanted to do and how I was going to get all caught up, (well actually, I was supposed to go work on Easter eggs with a friend, but I ditched) but instead I dyed my hair, and hubby and I finally got our Christmas tree. (Oh ya - he didn't notice that I'd dyed my hair either *g*).

I should get ready for work now, but I just want to crawl back into bed and read *g*

Do you have those people in your life that continually let you down, but for some reason you forget each time they want to make plans?
I am both smarter and more cynical than this. *grump*

Makin' babies

Possibly the only upside to being infertile is that I have never had to worry about birth control. Never that is until I decided to try to make a baby. The fertility centre has me on birth control for the next 21 days, and that amuses me to no end. It actually makes sense, they want to override your system and hormones, so they pump you full of them.

Ask me on Day 21 if I still find it amusing *g*

So yep, after the false start in November, I'm actually in a schedule and ready to go! All the drugs have been ordered, I just have to figure out how to pay for them right after Christmas (heh - I should just stick them in my stocking - Merry Christmas to me!)

(And to those I talked to about what I should do, I appreciate all of your opinions, and I did call the centre and explained my concerns with this cycle. They felt that since my IVF cycle didn't acutally start until January, with a transfer in late Jan (fingers crossed) the holidays shouldn't throw me too out of whack.)
