Random Thoughts

I love daylight savings. It means a world of difference in the Pacific Northwest. All winter we go to work in the dark, and then by the time work is over, its dark again. With daylight savings it feels like we have a whole extra day when we get home from work. Although...it also makes me feel a lot more guilty about plopping my big bottom on the couch as soon as I get home.

I finished our taxes last night. Ugh. Do you know that you only "get back" about 15% of your out-of-pocket medical expenses? I guess its better than nothing. Although more would be better.

St. Pat's is really no fun without the beer. Why be Irish if you can't celebrate by getting smashed? This is my first National Ireland day without hitchin up me knickers and doin' a little jig. It was spent, instead, watching Idol. What is with that weird Adam dude? He pretty much creeps me out.

I passed my sugar test. No gestational diabetes for me. That actually came as a big surprise seeing as 40-50% of PCOSers get it. I thought for sure the writing was on the wall. Especially as I gained four pounds in one week. Now I can only blame it on eating relentlessly.

We spent the weekend with four other couples at a big house on Whidbey Island (San Juans). Even though the weather was totally bi-polar (sunny one minute, literally snowing the next) it was a great weekend with friends. We made a big St Pats feast and shared all our meals at one huge dining table. I made my "meat lovers" lasagna (four kinds of meat) one night. Mmmmm. It was a relaxing weekend and we hope to make it an annual event.

So glad your test results were good! And that lasagna sounds tasty.

Hooray for passing the GD test! You're love of daylight savings time may be tempered a bit next year when you have a little one whose sleep schedule gets all screwed up :)

I agree with Jen - daylight savings and kids do not mix!

Congrats on no gestational diabetes.

Next year when you do your taxes, you will be happy to have your little tax deduction. Much better than the medical deductions (well, at least easier to calculate).

Sounds like a lovely weekend and Yeah for no GD!! I'm glad someone likes Daylight savings time, it's killing us in the sunbelt.
