I am, indeed, thankful that it's Friday. My dear E has been gone all week, and tomorrow I will get on a plane and be reunited with her.

It's been a bit of a long week for me. My new job is going well, but this week I finally really got going on several things, and I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed- in a good way, of course. There really is no better way to learn than to jump in. Still, I feel as if I've worked 3 weeks this week!! I am also really looking forward to spending time with our favorite friends in the world: Carolyn & Cheryl (aka C&C Music Factory.)

Erin is doing well out in Napa- at least she was when I spoke to her this morning. Things with her job have settled down quite a bit, and that's a relief. She's been under a great deal of stress since the beginning of May. Now that we are approaching July, it appears as though her work-life balance may come back into balance.

So, the end of our craziness is in sight. I think I've only gained 3-5 pounds, so not too much damage done through it all. E and I have sworn not to overdo it throughout the rest of the year. We are looking forward to being on schedule with eating & exercising so that we can get on track with this baby thing ASAP!!

It's odd, I guess that I hadn't really been thinking much about Baby over the last couple of months. We'd been obsessed with baby for about 2 years, and then I suddenly stopped. Just this week, though, I started feeling it again: the urge to focus on our baby, our family, our future. I've missed blogland, but not immensely until this very week... now, I'm missing the collective energy of our virtual friends rooting for our success... the community of folks all looking toward baby, family, future. I'm not sure if the crazy-busy knocked it out of me for a bit, or if I needed to take a break to retain sanity, but I'm thinking about Baby and baby-making again.

Not sure what that means - I am not sure we will try in July, but we will see what the month will bring. More when we're back from Vegas...

I'm excited that you guys are finding your way back to that baby-making place - we're here for your ride and rooting for you.

Glad things in your lives are balancing out and have a FAB time in Vegas.

gald E's job is settling down and you like your new job! july is just around the corner and then you two get to take a little break, right?

i think it's perfectly normal to have waves of thinking about and ttc and then not. last year i took nearly 8 months off from ttc, thinking about it, and even blogging. it was too much and my body needed all my attention in order to get it back to a place where we could even start to think of trying again.

hope you have fun in vegas!!!
