back from hiatus

WORK! and lots of it. like I was telling a friend - 2 days is the new 2 weeks. clients are now expecting these ridiculous creative turnarounds. it wasn't THAT long ago when I had time to think about a design project then sketch then execute. these days I barely have a (recycled) concept on my screen and the clients start ringing me up. "when can I see something?" bastards.

I was thinking the other night (major insomnia) about how super lucky b and I are with ginny in our life. first of all, how is it possible to have insomnia when you are dead tired? seriously? this little girl brings us such profound joy. just this morning I woke up in a crap and sour mood. sunday is, in theory, my morning to sleep in. but there was NO sleepin' in today or next sunday or the sunday after that because we have such a sucky mattress. your back can't tolerate anything past 8 am. how cruel! in my achy, grumpy state I was welcomed into the living room with a giant, sloppy, snotty nosed, open mouthed kiss for mumma. ahhhhh. the day is good!

even with such a beautiful miracle in our life this blog will continue to be an Infertility Blog. I dreamt on thursday night we were going to use DEs. in real life I'm not ruling that out. I'm also thinking a lot about adoption. once b finishes his training I hope to scream "piss of IF!" and continue on a different path to build our family. to be continued...

when i lived in England temporarily the mattress was hateful. I finally got an old comforter and put it under the bottom sheet, made all the difference in the world!!!!

A bad mattress is a bad thing, but shopping for a new mattress is pure hell in my book. We HATED IT.

Your work stress sounds awful. I guess one thing about my work is the pace is frantic when I'm there, but there is never work outside of work--I can't take patients home with me. Well, I should be studying or reading the latest research but right now, too much other stuff going on.

And I cannot WAIT to hear about all your upcoming plans. In the end, sometimes when we think we don't have any options we really have tons...

We too have the fortune of dealing with IF, although did the total opposite of you. When faced 5 years ago with the "You need to do IVF, and it won't work the first time," we decided to adopt. Adopting our son was a wonderful experience of which I would have repeated had we been able to get the money. This time around we thought we'd try treatment with a different doctor (made a world of difference), and are now expecting twins. I worried extensively about what this would do to my now 4 year old son, and he has no issues with it at all. I'm sure it will come up as he gets older, but I have to say both routes of adding to our family have been blessings and each comes with their own stresses, but adoption for us was such a wonderful experience I really do hope you find time to look into it, and truly consider it.

We're facing the same conversation...I keep putting it off, but we can't do that forever. right? I look forward to hearing how it all goes!
