That was fun. In other news. . .Things are crazy, but going well. I'm working constantly, but mostly enjoying it. I know it's going to sound a little nuts, but I enjoy and thrive off chaos. And things are nothing if not chaotic right now. One night this week I worked until midnight, and then got up at 4am the next morning to keep working. That's just how it's going to be in my little corner of the world, indefinitely.

On the baby front, I see Dr. GI on Thursday. I am feeling great, and hope to be cleared to TTC again. I should ovulate around the beginning of next week, so theoretically, the timing of this appointment on Thursday is perfect. Given the chaos of the Big Project, I haven't exactly decided though if we WILL TTC this month, even if cleared. It seems a little fool-hardy, given the utter chaos of the rest of my life, to be trying to get pregnant right now. Of course, it also seems a little foolish to think that after everything that's happened across the last year, we'd actually get pregnant immediately upon trying. I can't invest much time thinking about it, though, because if I do and Dr. GI says we are still on hold, I don't think I'll be able to bear it. I have to say, though, I am feeling optimistic. The planets are aligning. I can just feel it.

You know I cannot claim to speak Arabic fluently. I get by and am pretty good if I may say so, but fluent, fluent not yet. No classes at all, just be immersed in daily here in Cairo I have learnt alot. Can't read a lick though, a few numbers and letters but need studying for sure.

I am so glad things are looking up. Optimism is such a good feeling . . . hard to come by in IF sometimes!
