Plans are Stupid

I've had a "Top 10" list for as long as I can remember. Recently, I've started a "101 in 1,001" list that helps me to set lots and lots of little goals to be completed in about three years. It's a lot of fun to check things off and keep myself motivated to get out, do more, and feel proud of what I've done.

But that is really hard to do when you're not allowed to make plans. I was talking to a friend about my list this weekend, and she mentioned that she'd like to help me with two of my goals: #54- Ride our horses up a particular Aspen-laden hill in the fall, and #86 - Go water-skiing on the reservoir near our house. My first instinct was to say, "Heck yeah!", but in the back of my mind, I am hoping with all my heart that I can't do either one of those things this summer. I'd rather be pregnant.

It's cool. I'll just stick to some of my other goals, like: #80 - Camp overnight at the bluegrass fest, #42 - Go to Taos, NM, #61 - Enter a photo in the State Fair, etc. I can do those things no matter what.

Because we all know what #1 is...

I've Been Cheating...

...with another blog.

I have an alter ego as a fashion blogger. I know, I's strange, but true. It's why I haven't been posting in the last few weeks. (Well, that and school has been insane.)

So here's the news, in case anyone is still following me at all:

1. We are going through with our first IVF in mid-June. I got my drugs on Tuesday, and HOLY CRAP is that a lot of stuff I'm going to be poking through my derma.

2. School is out in one week and I could NOT be happier.

3. I have no real summer plans due to IVF concerns / scheduling, so it's looking like a whole bunch of day-trips in my near future.

4. Did I mention that school is almost out?

If you need a break from baby blogging, please head over to my other blog, Casual and Clueless, to see me show off my budget-friendly (as in, "I just dropped $12,500 to have my uterus worked over and don't have money to buy cute trendy clothes", budget) fashion fun.

And I hope that I'll be posting more soon. I'm going to need the's going to be a tough month. Welcome back, hormones!
