Although I didn't achieve my goal to be pregnant by this time of year, I'm still thankful for everything else I've archived in the last 12 months. I'm even more thankful for the wonderful and supportive family and friends I have. What would I do with out you?

I think change is in the air again folks! I'm applying for a new job that is closer to family and pays $20k more than what I make now. I think the best part of this job is it will allow me to do the type of city planning that I have always wanted to be a part of: redevelopment. Ooh and I actually have a real shot at this job! Just thinking about this gives me goose bumps. I haven't been this excited in a long time.

This potential change couldn't come at a better time. Ever since I won the big grant, my supervisor has started to make my life hell again. THIS IS NOT A COMPETITION! I DID NOT WIN THE GRANT IN AN EFFORT TO STEAL YOUR POSITION! I'm right back to square one with this guy. Why he feels so threatened by me is something I have a hard time comprehending. When it gets down to it, I'm a bit of screwball. One minute I have a genius moment and the next minute I'm the girl walking out of the bathroom with tissue paper dangling from the back of my skirt.

I recently relayed all the information I learned from my conference in Chicago to him and another co-worker. I also provided a list that I created of potential projects and jobs that we could go after in light of the recent shift in politics. He called my boss, where I was within earshot, and told him how HE had all these "great ideas" that will make us so much money blah blah blah. D-bag.

In other news, I finally found a promising international clinic for IVF. Its the Barbados Fertility Centre. Even with traveling expenses, doing IVF there was still significantly cheaper than it is here AND there's a vacation involved. How fantastic is that? I'm just trying to decide if I should try one more IUI first or go straight to IVF. The earliest I could do IVF is in August. Do I really want to wait that long? Damn I will be 34 years old at that point, another year lost. HMMMM....

Hope everyone has an excellent Thanksgiving! Safe traveling!

I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you for this new sounds perfect. Aside from more money & being closer to family, being away from that toxic boss of yours will be so much better for you.

Yous Barbados option sounds very promising. I've been there for vacation & it is absolutely beautiful & the people are very kind. I hope it works out & I can't wait to hear more about it.

I am liking this job prospect. Closer to family, more money, no nutty boss to deal with. All of the above are very good to have for when your baby comes along!

And Barbados for IVF....this sounds like a wonderful idea!
