what a great story about your mom's neighbor. The no spring chicken line made me chuckle. I also loved your story about running at the track. You are my inspiration. I'm not pregnant and don't run 5K. I think I need to though!
Welcome, knucklehead. I think doubts and questions are just part and parcel of being a mom. I think as women we may sometimes over think things. Just trust yourself to make the right decision. I certainly have had lots of thoughts and concerns about what effect another child would have on my daughter. Trust yourself to make the right decision.
AFM. My temp. has continued to confound logic. I decided to split my chart on the day I started the new herbs. Once I did that, FF did not identify the day my temp dipped as O day. I hope that is correct because it means I still have a chance this month to ovulate. I am trying to just ride this out and be okay with things I have no control over.
My best friend just found a new job and is moving to Alaska. I am really excited for her, but it just hit me that there is a side to me that is pretty sad she is leaving. She is my great support person and more of a sister to me and an aunt to dd than my family. In fact she is the only "aunt" my dd knows. On the flip side there is job opening there for me and just playing around looking at jobs revealed that dh could get a job making double what he makes here. Hmmm, it's tempting but I don't think I am ready to be away from dd for a full time job and there are very good reasons why I went into business for myself. Theorectically, if my business would pick up I could make way more here working part-time. That is if I could figure out how to make my business here pick up
And while I was investigating possible jobs I found jobs for both of us in Iraq making major money. Ignoring the whole living conditions, tents, 110 degree heat, spiders, scorpians, sandstorms, IED's
etc... you know those little quality of life issues, it's really tempting in some respects. If we were to go for 2 years we could make more $ than we would make in 10 years here. We could go for 2 years, come back, spend 6 months traveling or whatever and buy my dad's farm which is what I want to do more than anything and it's out of my reach without a huge miracle. However, with a 3 year old it's probably not such a great idea.
Fun to think about though.
Sorry to digress so far from the real reason for this thread.
