The mess in my head. Bullet style. Maybe. with paragraphs too.

I have way way way too much going on in my head right now.

* CD2 today. boo. At least it was a 14 day LP though, thanks to progesterone.

* Ant turns four next Monday. Bday party planned for Saturday. Must bake cake, make frosting, decorate cake all of which usually keep me up until the wee hours, three nights in a row. Plus figure out what food we will serve, do we want to borrow a pool, what games should I plan?

* I don't know if I've mentioned it on here, but we're building a new house. It has been a long and painful process which has included a falling out with our architect, major structural issues thanks to said architect which necessitated replacing the main carrying beam with a steel beam and a huge delay because of that. Now at the final strech but that means picking everything from sinks to lights to tile and colors. I am slowly making headway, but it's SO hard to try and coordinate everything. I spend at least two hours every night working on it, which means REALLY late bedtimes. And then I can't get to sleep because of thinking about all this.

* I've worked an extra 8 hours a week (that's 50% more than usual) over the last couple of weeks because a bunch of stuff I've been working on all of a sudden is going to be presented to the FDA.

* Been trying to be a little more proactive in the friends arena (honestly most of the time I'm okay with being the one to initiate things, it's just when I'm sad about something else it all comes crashing down on me), thanks to your comments and Mara's directive to MWF seeks BFF. Left my phone number for a neighbor I really like, and we've chatted on the phone a few times although not actually managed to make plans due to end of summer craziness. and have a playdate with one of Ant's school friends on Weds, AND they're coming to his party on Sat (cue nerves... am I going to measure up? is the party?)

* I would really love to have a little girl to complement my two boys. The chinese gender chart has been right for all three pg so far... I have hamsters going around and around in my head on this issue - do I wait until my next 'girl month' or not? Until CD1 I was pretty sure I was going to wait, now not so much... hamsters!

Wow, lots going on in your life right now. Building a house is definitely a pain, but so worth it in the end to get exactly what YOU want. Exciting!!

I'm sure you'll throw a wonderful birthday party. :)

The Chinese Gender Chart...I've never even looked at it. you've got me curious now...

I know it's stressful now, but believe me, once you've picked everything exactly how you want them, it will all be worth it. And you probably won't even notice the small details anyways :) I was stressing out about the color of grout...then I realized, when have I ever noticed the color of grout before?!?

Saturday sounds fun! He must be so excited. What a fun age :)

My position stands...don't worry too much about the chart. What's meant to be is meant to be!

14 LP is great! Sorry about CD2, though.

I can't believe Ant is four already! I hope the party went well!

Wow, building a house! I can imagine that that would be pretty stressful. I have zero "vision" so I admire you for being able to put things together like that!

Yay! I'm so glad you like the blog! :)

That is such a tough call on the gender chart. So tough. I would be going back and forth too. Good luck with the decision - looking forward to hearing what you decide!
