Tomorrow morning I'll call the clinic to set up the appointment for my Clomid cycle review. I should go to the pharmacy sometime tomorrow to get my prescriptions filled. Looks like I'll be starting Clomid on Thursday the 4th. Oh goody. Just in time for Disneyland. Happiest place on Earth, indeed.

Interestingly, exactly 3 years ago today, I started the cycle that ultimately gave us KB.

How can I not get my hopes up with a coincidence like that?

The impending cycle of something something

Hear that sound?

That's my foot, impatiently tapping. Awaiting my period so we can get this show on the road.

I got my last period towards the end of the India trip, August 30. I was expecting this cycle to start yesterday or today. There is no sign of it whatsoever, not even spotting.

Figures. The one time I actually want it to start.

And no, I'm not pregnant. Unless that was not a real period at the end of August. And with the number of glasses of wine I've had in the last couple of weeks, we're not even thinking about that.

People who spend the bulk of their day gabbing on the phone (whether personal or business) should NOT be seated next to developers and engineers!!

I'm just saying.

I know I still need to post about the India trip and KB's illness/hospital visit.

Work is swallowing me whole right now, but I'm hoping after the launch this coming Friday, things will settle down A LOT and I'll have copious amounts of free time for things like blogging.

Not to mention things like washing dishes, cleaning the house, doing laundry...

Happy Anniversary to us

8 years. Good grief, it doesn't seem like 8 years.

We didn't do anything terribly exciting. Back in 2003, we happened to be in London during our anniversary and we thought we would start an oh-so-clever tradition of being in a different city for every anniversary.

2003: London
2004: New York City
2005: San Francisco (KB was 2.5 months old and anything more seemed impractical)
2006: San Diego

Our 2007 anniversary was spent in...drumroll please...Gilroy, California.

We're getting lazy. And it's much harder to travel and do Terribly Exciting Things with the munchkin.

Anyway, we did have fun today. We went to a theme park called Gilroy Gardens. KB loves riding the rides there and it's a fun way to get outdoors and be together.

Our big anniversary trip is going to be in a couple of weeks when we head down to Disneyland. We had originally thought we'd go for our anniversary weekend but then I read about how cute/fun Disneyland is at Halloween.

Funny how life is all about the kiddos now. But I wouldn't have it any other way.

I'm pretty sure I'm going to be on Clomid at least part of the time we're in Anaheim. I just hope it doesn't make me a raging beeyotch as it has in the past.

We're back

And I am so. frickin. tired.

Check the time stamp -- it's nearly 3 am and I'm awake. I think I would be peacefully snoozing if some small person hadn't woken up at 12:30 and insisted that it was time to wake up.

He was back to sleep at 1:45 after MUCH pleading and cajoling. Now I'm wide awake.

Need to sleep.

Will post about our trip when we're all better rested. The last 2 nights, KB woke up at 2:15 am (up for the day -- painful) and 2:30 am (went back to sleep from 3:45 to 6:30). Not sure why he is progressing backwards, waking up even earlier tonight.

I will say that if you're ever in Bangalore and find yourself in need of a hospital so your child can be admitted for IV fluids to combat dehydration caused by vomiting and diarrhea, I now know just the place.

Yeah. Our trip was that good.
