I haven't even accomplished anything today to be tired from. I made a quick trip to town this afternoon to Wal-mart, and I ran completely out of steam before getting out of there. As I sit here, I'm wondering how completely disgusting it would be to go to bed without taking a bath. And I'm also wondering how lame it would be if I were to go to bed at 7:00 pm. My belly feels like and looks like it's full of something. I'm without words to describe it. I noticed earlier it's a struggle to bend over. Yay for eggs! Oh please oh please oh please let there be lots of eggs.

Mom came over earlier and brought over a sweet surprise. She fixed us a care package for our trip next week, which included things like a new pair of pajamas for both myself and Keith, crackers, "squeeze cheese"( yum,) candy, crayons, coloring books, a new Sudoku book, magazines for us, and money for a tank of gas. Oh, how I love her. She's the best. She watched tonight as I took my last two injections for the day, the Menopur and Follistim.

I finished just about all laundry today. I'm going to pack tomorrow and finish up my cleaning.

Molly's feeling better, I think. She and Maggie are napping and have been playing alot today.

I'm getting hungry. I cooked a big lunch of macaroni and cheese, pintos, hot water cornbread, and mini chocolate pies. Maybe I'll eat leftovers.

If retrieval ends up happening during the first part of next week, and Keith and I end up making it home, we may try to make a trip to Vicksburg, MS or Tunica, MS, to see Aaron Lewis of Staind. We love his music (several of his songs are posted on our blog page.) He just kicked off his solo tour, and we've always said if he's ever within driving distance from us, we're there. He will be at the Ameristar Casino in Vicksburg on Thursday, January 21 and Friday, January 22, and at the Horseshoe in Tunica on Saturday, January 23. We have a much more important agenda next week, so I won't be devastated if we miss him this time. He'll be in Biloxi in March, so we may just have to take a birthday trip in the spring.

I realize this post is very random. I'm tired.
