I'm so freaking boring.

It's kind of weird to be blogging about IVF when really not all that much exciting is happening. Started up lupron again today, and now we continue on with that until my baseline stuff on March 3rd, a little over a week away. Woo. Hoo.

I do have some random things to talk about. First, I was listening to NPR the other day, and they were talking about this thing called GTD. I thought it was just another crazy high tech way to manange your life, which I never go for - but it's actually almost what I'm doing now, just smarter. I bought the book, and have read around on a few blogs, and it's a cool idea. Basically, you carry around a notepad, and whenever you get an idea, you just write it down. When you get back to your desk, you store the idea in a folder (he suggests having 43 folders, one for each day of the month, and other for each month). Supposedly, this allows you to clear you mind of the clutter, and help get thing done.

I already do the weekly 'to do' list, and it really helps me visualize what's coming up in the week ahead, from big work things, to going to the gym, planned meet up with friends, and even what is going to be for dinner each night. This is kind of taking it to the next level, and I'm interested to read to book to see what he suggests.

And - I did a rather spontaneous thing. A knitting pal asked me innocently enough if I was going up to SPA this weekend - it's basically a 'knit and spin in' - in which a bunch of people who like to do such things invade a hotel, and knit together. It's free, except for the cost of a hotel room (if you choose to stay overnight, which you don't have too). This one is pretty well organized, there are vendors and lots of people go each year. It's only a 2 hour drive from my house, and I just decided yesterday to go. I booked a room, and told my mom she was coming with me (she protested a little, as she needed to clean her house this weekend. I countered with the fact that I was paying for the room, and it was in Freeport, ME. Mom loves LLBean - so that clinched it). Aaron is going to be working on the living room all weekend - so the house is just going to be a big mess with a lot of loud construction going on. So - I'm escaping! Hope the forecasted snow doesn't mess with my plans!

Yay for doing something spontaneous! That sounds like a ton of fun!

Hope you have a great time. There are always fun things for you to go do where you live. Not so here in Texas. Knit a bunch.

How fun! The GTD method sounds like something I do, sort of...I don't have 43 folders though!
