Today is our 2nd anniversary. We have reservations at a lovely restaurant called Oleana in Cambridge. We went there after our friends S&G got married. It was one of the five finest meals I've ever had -- up there with Blue Ginger. I hope it will be similarly magnificent this evening.

We were going to see a movie too, but the one we wanted to see is only playing in downtown Boston, so I'm not sure we're going to make it. Perhaps we will see a different one. Perhaps not. We did go see a movie on Friday. We hadn't been for a while. We thought the movie was excellent. It was the Coen Brothers' new movie, No Country for Old Men. Depressing as hell, but well acted, well done, and there wasn't a single baby or mention of a baby or pregnancy during the entire film. We considered it a win.

Thanksgiving was fine. It was nice to have the days off, and the food was delicious. Has some slight inter-family quibbling, which is annoying, but what can you do? Sometimes my two sisters-in-law butt heads a little. And they both talk to me about the other. I don't like it.

Last night I went to see E&R and little S by myself. T was too sad after hanging all weekend with my nieces and nephew. It is so cute how much some of my nieces love T. They head-butt his belly, they sit on his lap, the giggle while he teases them. T doesn't have much experience with kids, so it's nice that they get along so well. It's too bad that it makes him sad, though. But anyway, little S is such a toddler now. He's walking and talking and completely knows exactly what he wants at all times. He throws little tantrums when he's frustrated. I find it funny. Is that cruel of me? I always think little kids tantrums are funny. They are so easy to see through. I know it's frustrating when you have to deal with them all of the time, but until then I guess it will make me smile.

I've started crocheting a purse/bag for my niece for Chanukah. We draw names, and I drew hers. I hope she likes it. I'm going to make one similar for myself at some point. It's nice to craft again, though my finger is still numb.

I have a cousin that may have a job for me that is only 2 miles from my house. Not bad.

I have one more dose of Cl0mid and my first (and most likely only) monitoring is Wednesday. That puts me on track for a Friday IUI.

What's Thanksgiving without some family stuff thrown in? (my nana didn't show up because she's mad at us.) I'm glad you got to have a nice Thanksgiving and a nice movie. I wish you the best of luck with your IUI.

oops! Happy Anniversary to you both!!! I hope you have a lovely dinner. I lived in Arlington between semesters and I worked in Boston and Cambridge. I fell in love with Boston.

Happy Anniversary. Hope the dinner is fab.
Can't believe it's coming round for your next DIUI again already. I hope the new donor brings new results. Will be thinking of you.
