There is a large fire burning pretty close to my house. The smoke and ashes are terrible. The smell is overwhelming. I closed all of the windows, but it still smells like a campfire in our living room. Joe said I should try and pretend we are camping. He's a funny guy, my husband. I know we are not in any real danger, but it is scary. I pray no firefighters are injured or houses lost. It may affect my commute tomorrow, as the toll road I take to work is closed at the moment. I wish the wind would stop. Other than that, it was a nice day. I had breakfast with two of my friends that I met through an infertility support group I attended two summers ago. There were five of us originally. One girl got pregnant and dropped out(her loss), two became preganant after IVF, and the other one is pursuing domestic adoption. Only the three of us live locally still, and we try to get together every three or four months or so. Jenny has the handsomest little boy, and Lynn has the cutest little baby girl I have ever met. I would post pictures, but I don't have permission and I won't post pictures of other people's children without their consent. You'll just have to take my word for it. Extreme cuteness. I managed to shake off the insecurity and negative vibe I had from the last two days of work. My motto this week is going to be "Suck it up." Oh yeah, and "Stop making stupid mistakes". Hope your Sunday was good.
