Damn, Vegas

  • Coffee + croissant at the walk-up stand in the hotel = $10.00
  • Enough fake boobs to make me think implants are coming back in style
  • Enough cigarettes to make me think smoking never went out of style
  • $10.00 lost on the penny slots because I was feeling lucky

Update - the 2 month variety

Our profile has been live for 2 months as of today. Here's what has happened:

  • We were chosen as a "favorite family" by a birth parent on our agency's website (this is like adding a website to your favorites so you can go back and view it later)
  • Our profile was sent out to 5 potential birth families in August (September's numbers aren't out yet...that's just how our agency rolls...slowly)
  • Time flew by and we are going to have to start renewing parts of our home study this month

I keep feeling like I should be doing something. But I'm not exactly sure what. Every once in awhile we wander through the baby section at tar.get and find ourselves either oohing and ahhing over tiny clothes with monkeys on the butts or making a quick exit toward safer parts of the store because one of us has started to tear up. We haven't been brave enough (crazy enough?) to buy anything.

Fingers crossed for month 3....

Where the mileage mondays went

Right out the window.

Seems I have a torn plantaris muscle. Also known as "tennis leg". Even though I don't play tennis. The plantaris is a "vestigial muscle" that up to 20% of people don't even have. Consider it the tonsils of the leg! Two things I've learned: 1) it sure is a bummer to get old and 2) sometimes things you don't even need are a pain in the ass (erm, leg).
