It's that time of my cycle where every little cramp and twinge is analyzed and I wonder if it's implantation cramping. It's been happening here and there for the last day or so and that would be about right as far as the timing goes. However, this happens almost on a monthly basis. So I have to sit and wait for another 5 to 7 days to see what happens. Always with the waiting.

On a happier note (as in my Happiness Is... post) my curtains came in early for the living room. I'm so excited. We hung them up on the new rod yesterday (which I got for only $25 which was 50% off) and they look great. There are some issues and I will detail them all to you at a later date. I need to get everything in order first. BUT, I love the curtains and how they hang all the way to the floor. We have some of my late Grandmother's paintings to hang and we need a ceiling fan/light and the room will be done. My Grandmother really could have made some money with her artwork. She painted 4 pictures of New Orleans post cards when I was about 3 or 4 years old. Somehow over the years, nothing happened to them with all of her moves and all of her clutter. I found them as I was going through her things after she passed away. They are beautiful. BJ loves them...as does everyone else that has seen them. They were perfect at our old house and they will be perfect at this house too (if I could just figure out where to hang them in the living room). It's like they were meant just for me, no matter where I am. I will try to post them one day but digital pictures probably will not convey their beauty. The old curtains, that were too short, will go up in the spare bedroom...bedroom #4 that was supposed to be the nursery but is now my temporary scrapping room.

BJ and I are going to try and get away within the next few weeks before baseball starts. We haven't gone anywhere since July (during our IVF) and it's been a long time coming. I hope we can get something planned...especially since it's starting to warm up outside. We usually go away 3 times a year together and at least once with the Little Guy. Not sure what the plan will be this year.

Thank you for your warm comments on my post about my mother. I have so much to say about her and our relationship that it's hard to find the time to get it all out. My sister is in therapy and she said that they talk about our mother a lot. I think getting all of my 'mother' story out there will be therapeutic as well. Stay tuned for a very drama filled story. :-)

I hear you on the waiting game. It's torture! Keeping my fingers crossed for you!

A getaway sounds wonderful - I hope that you can arrange it! :)

I hate the 2ww. I guess it's the 1WW now though. All of the guessing is just killer.

I'm glad that your curtains came and that you have a trip to plan. Any ideas where you may go?

I'm glad you and BJ are planning a getaway - hope it works out!
FF just picked my O date as last Wednesday, so even thought I'm not sure they're right, it's way better than only being on 3dop...so I'll take it :). I guess I'll find out for sure when AF comes around (I should be saying "if", right?). This waiting is no fun!

The 2ww never gets easier, does it? I hope the curtains brought a deserved distraction, and that you guys can get away soon.

Waiting sucks. Plain and simple. :) A getaway sounds lovely. Makes me want to plan one! :)
