Patience may be a virtue, but it’s not one of my personal strengths. Turns out some things are worth waiting for, though. Who knew? No, I’m not talking about that other thing that’s happening today, I’m talking about the arrival of my package this week for the great candyswap of 2006! Bethany not only came […]

3.. 2.. 1.. GO!

19 July 2006 Frostie

Oh look, it’s yet another post in the ongoing saga of “oh for the love of god, will you either get pregnant or shut up about it already”. Well, we’re almost there. And when I say”we” I mean “we” as in all of us, because I’m really enjoying having a couple hundred of you along […]

Hurry up and wait

18 July 2006 Uncategorized

I was going to post a really big whine this morning. I’m starting to get a little impatient with the whole daily bloodletting thing (no updates because there’s nothing to post, just a lot of holes in the inside of my arm and the back of my hand), and this morning on the way into […]

Tummy trouble

16 July 2006 Uncategorized

I’m a little bit worried about Simon. (Warning: there will be talk of barfing ahead. Consider yourself warned.) He’s always been a great eater, but he’s been a little off his food lately. And maybe five or six times in the last couple of weeks, he’s finished most of his dinner, started to whimper, and […]

Frostie update

15 July 2006 Frostie

I’ve been promising an update for a couple of days, but I’ve been holding off for two reasons. One, I don’t really have anything of substance to report, and two, I wanted to be able to capture some of my thoughts and impressions on being back in the world of the infertile again. Whatever thoughts […]

The Lactation Station Breast Milk Bar

14 July 2006 Uncategorized

Catchy title, eh? Sometimes I have to turn over rocks and scrape barrel bottoms to find blog material, and sometimes things leap out of the newspaper and holler “Blog me!” This is one of the latter instances. Last night in Toronto, performance artist Jess Dobkin hosted the first-ever Lactation Station Breast Milk Bar at the […]

Ultrasound day

13 July 2006 Frostie

I’ve got nothing to say today, folks. I’ve got an ultrasound appointment at 7:30 this morning, followed by four hours of French class. (Ugh.) And yesterday, which is actually right now because I’m frantically typing this Wednesday night – see how I put myself out for you? – isn’t going to work because I have […]

How old is too old?

12 July 2006 Uncategorized

This past weekend, I was looking for a quick wardrobe fix to get me through the summer heat and I had gone out looking for a simple knee-length skirt when I found myself looking seriously for the first time at ‘skorts’. I’ve always found both the word and the concept of “skort” a bit absurd, […]

The mommy wars, in person

11 July 2006 Uncategorized

Over the last year and a half of blogging, I’ve seen a lot of conversations the ‘mommy wars’. In five years of mothering, though, I don’t think I ever actually felt judged by another mother about my parenting skills – until yesterday. We have, in our community, a wonderful resource for parents of children under […]
