Mommy, where do babies come from?

Well from these of course!:

Well, we hope anyway. So today is my first day with the new medication. There will be mixing of powders and injecting of liquids this evening...I'm starting to feel like a junkie here. It's always amazing to me how they trust people to do this to themselves and do it correctly. Thank goodness the insurance pays most of this, I only had to pay about $170 for all these drogas mas fina. Third times a charm they say, so we'll see!

We were also supposed to get some adoption papers notarized today. Didn't get around to it because I had to go buy this:

Treasure Island is closing and having big sales. I would have bought more, but hubby gave me the "I'm going to go wait in the car" line, so I tried to go through it all quickly. I managed to get a great deal on bamboo dpns, needle holders, the Baby Knits book and this awesome green shaker box! Yay me! What? What about the papers for the kids? KIDS?? I said there was a YARN SALE didntcha hear me?? Some things just can't wait!! Ah, what's a few days anyway...not like they're in any rush on their side...These papers (along with a lovely check for almost four grand) are just to get me a home study so the orphanage has proof we're not axe murderers. And the laugh of it is, the people verifying this are good old New York City Social Workers! We know how reliable they seem to be!!

Anyway, in other knitting news, I managed to start the Leaf Lace shawl.

After like 4 tries that is. First, I learned that I am not skilled enough with circs to cast on 4 tiny stitches with lace weight yarn. Therefore I decided to get it started on straights and then switch back to the circs. I got a great tip on Knitty to put circ wires in hot water to straighten them so they are manageable when new. Who'da thunk it.

That's it for today. How much do Sunday nights suck. Back to work this week, which includes getting up extra early in the morning for trips to the doctor..nothing like a little blood draw and vaginal sonogram to start your day!!

Today I leave you with a stupid joke a bartender told me this weekend:

"Did you hear about that actress that killed her husband today?"
"No who?"
"Reese somebody?"
"No, I heard she did it with a knife"

Yea I feel so bad for women that have to go through the invitro system. If I can find a cure for women who are having trouble getting pregnant I would do it in a flash. it's no fun.
good luck with it.
