TGIF ** I can't complain; this week has gone by very quickly, fortunately. Last night I got to see an old friend and Michelle and others for dinner. For once, I managed to eat. Of course, it was Indian food and I think I'd have to be comatose to turn down Indian food; it's my favorite. We had a nice time, though. Michelle and I retired to my house to watch Vanilla Sky. Not surprisingly, I started getting really sleepy about 9:00, so she took her video and went home. :-( I really need to finish that movie someday - I was starting to enjoy it! Tonight is my first alcohol-less happy hour. I have had other things going on since I found out I was pregnant, but I'm being hassled into going tonight. Not that I really mind. Then, when I get home, I have a movie/date night with my husband. We're going to watch Cast Away, another movie I haven't seen yet! I know, I'm behind the times.

Yes, we bought a Ford ** My brother is so supportive, saying things like:
Chris (e) (w) @ 18 Jul 02 18:09"
Okay, let me defend myself here. (a) I told the husband - naively - to do whatever he thought was best and I'd leave it up to him, thinking all along he was going to buy this 1995 Toyota 4-Runner he wanted. (b) He swears it was a smoking deal and it's fully loaded and we're stupid for not buying it. (c) There are people out there who really like Fords. (d) I know I'm not one of them, but I'm going to have to learn, now, aren't I? :-)

Confessions ** Okay, I just can't do it anymore. There are so often things I want to say, but can't because all of you readers out there are blissfully unaware of my news. Well, not all of you; a handful of you already know. So, here goes.

We're pregnant. Yes, yes, I know, big shocker. You all know we've been trying. Well, the second month of Clomid did it. I'm in my 6th week, with an approximate due date of 3/13/03. Now, and this is important... Thank you for your well-wishes, but remember that I am still early on and still at risk for miscarriage. That's why I didn't tell you, and I could still be sorry I did. So, I hope you understand if I don't sound overjoyed and ecstatic for a while. I really am, trust me, but I can't get all worked up and excited only to have my heart broken. I do have a "Baby Blog" and it's here. It's nothing fancy right now, and I'm mostly keeping it for myself. I'll make it prettier later. But it will not have belly pictures, sorry. Online belly pictures freak me out a little, and the thought of my own belly up there? Oh, hell no.

Anyway, that's why I've been so moody, even around here. Only select people know, and I guess I just broadened that a fair bit. I just had to tell you, because I have more news. My husband's truck went kaput and we were shopping for a mid-90's used pickup with an extended cab (for the baby seat). Yeah, well, he came home yesterday with this, in white:

I guess he's ready to be a daddy. We own a station wagon. I just don't even know what to say to follow that up!

Hippo Birdies To You ** Happy birthday, Michelle! I hope you have a fun day today! I'll see you tonight. :-)

Answers ** Solution #1: Baja Fresh charbroiled chicken tacos. Solution #2: A good dose of laughter. Solution #3: Remembering the work day will be over in less than 3 hours.

Mood swings ** I'm in a very cranky mood this morning. It's amazing how that just happens; you wake up one morning, pissy and bitchy for no apparent reason. Well, there's usually a reason, but that's another story. We had a nice evening, I had a pretty good night's sleep. Just cranky. This is how I felt last Friday and I ended up going home early because of it. I hope I can rough it out today. Anybody have any great ideas for being cheerful and getting out of my funk?

A Year in the Life ** One year ago today, I was walking into the lobby of Prudential Financial's Kierland Campus, into a building known affectionately as Paradise One. That day I was given orientation about what it meant to work for Prudential. That day I met my now-good-friend Melissa. Tomorrow will be one year from when we sat together and enjoyed our first luch together. Today she is one of my best friends. I'm not doing the job I was hired for then. Well, actually, I am still doing it, but it is transitioning away from me this week, and I have a new promoted job title. A lot of things have happened in the last year, and yet, a lot of things have really stayed the same. I know that sounds cheesy, but it's true.

Anyway, I had a busy but nice weekend. Yesterday was crazy, as I am training my replacement for the above-referenced job, but today's a little better. I've also been crashing so early at night, I'm not online much. My apologies to those of you who expect posts on Delphi or emails from Earthlink. I'm not ignoring you; I'm sleeping by 9:00!!! I guess I just need it right now. Hope you're all getting what you need and enjoying yourselves!
