Then I read a great story -- or well a great chapter in the middle of a a story by hawkeyesmartini, and that made me even more joyous. Now I need to go back and read the rest of that story. Been meaning to for a while, but haven't gotten around to it, but this might just be the boot in the bum I needed...:)
Last night M. and I had a fun experience. His grandmother has moved into a retirement community and no longer has room for, or need of, her good china. So she gave it to us as a wedding present a few years ago. Since we were in a v. small apartment ourselves until a couple of weeks ago, we didn't ever even unwrap it. Now, in our new house and with our brand spanking new china hutch just screaming to be filled, we finally got to open it up. It was like Christmas all over again, let me tell you!!!!! It's not quite a complete set -- I'm sure a few pieces have been broken over the years -- but what we have of the set is lovely and is real porcelein, the kind you can see through when you hold it up to the light it is so delicate. We were v. excited, to say the least! And it looks absolutely smashing in the hutch. So, whoo-hooo, maybe I really am an "adult" now, after all! (erm... I THINK that is a good thing.... Isn't it????)
Oh, and still no monthly visitor, so the chances of my being pregnant are getting better all the time! If "it" doesn't arrive tomorrow, then on Thursday morning I will be taking the ol' one ? test. Even better, my bestest friend may also be "in the family way", so we may get to share this experience, and that thought pleases me immensely, somehow!!!!
Now, onward into the madness....
P.S. 6 pounds of gummy bears is a LOT of bears..... ;)
