Good morning ladies!
How are you doing?
Hey, this thread is a bit sleepy, where is everyone?
MIRACLE!!!!! TRACIIIIII!!!! We're on May 4th, so is it official? Do you no longer belong to this thread???
:D:D:D Come join us on the May cycle buddies, there are many people who have just started their cycles too! And some of them know and love you (obviously!!!). Love ya, mwah!!!
oooooh yes please, I want to see those cute little faces!!!! And that way you'll be able to see my profile too and we'll keep in touch. Hey, congrats on being so well organised for your first day as a homemaker!
:D:D:D:lol: Oh, you're very lucky, they only wake up once? Took Jérémie much longer... and he's still waking up in early morning, although it's not really his fault, he's teething a lot these days... So what's your plan, how long before you go back to work? To the spa? To a posh party?
Ooooh I'm going for a massage, a pedi and a haircut on the 15th with my bff. My stylist made her dream come true and opened a Morocco-inspired spa. SO BEAUTIFUL and reasonably priced. Apparently, the deluxe pedi lasts for 1:30, and you get nice scrubs and a coffee mud wrap and all sorts of things... just in time for the sandals season!
A PUPO girl must assume her princess status, eh?
Carolyn is right, Christmas doesn't see too too far when you think about it. I'm also anxious to know how the meeting went!
Remember what the guy said at the meeting... sometimes it feels like it's going to take forever to happen, but you forget all that when you hold your child in your arms for the first time! You,ve come this far hunny, you're resilient and strong, I'm sure you'll find a way to keep busy with pleasant projects to make time pass faster!
Franca, CONGRATS!!!!!! How are you doing?
Ems, ooooh so sorry about the MS... with the fatigue, it really is trying... I hope you're feeling better now?
Jayne, hi there, it's grea to haer from you!!! Sorry you're so busy, but I guess it's just temporary! Hey, sounds like your little buggers are a handful, so beautiful to watch them grow isn,t it? Every week, every day it seems they do something new!
Lee? Hello? Back from Spain? How is that tan?
AFM, there,s much to report, as always. FET is approaching and I know the days between u/s and FET will be stressful. It's particularly stressful this time because I only have one package of frosties. BUT I try to reassure myself with the fact that, each time they thawed our embies, 50% survived. So we should have 1 or 2 embies, technically. And it only takes one... I'm quite calm about the whole thing, doing this again after having a child is very different. And being a veteran helps, too, although it's surprising how much you forget!!! (how many times a day should I take estrace?? eeerrrrrrrr) Thankfully, the stomach cramps went away when I started taking the pills after my meals and stopped the antibiotics. I still have to watch my appetite, but it's okay. The nicer side effects of the meds kicked in, and DH has dark circles under his eyes, but a nice sparkle in them too!
Gee, sometimes I would swoop down on him just for putting his jacket on, with his broad and strong shoulders and... *sigh*
Other than that, I have officially started a cool project. I became a part-time cake decorator!
Traci, if you feel like moving to Montreal, I'm ready to open a business with you!
I found a nice professional cake decorator in Connecticut who's coaching me (Traci, you might want to check her website, wedding cakes for you, she's so nice!!!). I made a first attempt with fondant for Jérémie's daycare birthday cake and I had a lot of fun. Then on Saturday, I made a maypole wedding cake and got very good reviews. This week, I'm making another bday cake for Jérémie because my family is coming to Montreal to celebrate. DH suggested me to become a part-time caterer last year when I was rethinking my career. It's been bugging me ever since. I LOVE cooking so much, you all know that, but I didn't want to work exclusively on evenings and weekends. So doing cakes and desserts allows me to work during the day, deliver, and then leave. I don't know if my hobby will become a burden once I open a business. So I give myself a couple of years to test the idea. I've made a website and I'll offer my services to our social network, and their networks... spread the word. I'll only charge for the ingredients and decoration. That way it's not a business, and I can pile up experience and see if I still like it after a year or so. Then, if I want to start a business, I'll do the 12-hour training for my hygiene and salubrity accreditation, buy a permit, register the business and my prices will go up!
Okay guys, time to go! Take care!
