3 . . . 2 . . . 1 . . . 0

We have lift off! High speed is up and running at 2000x the speed of our dial up. We also wired for wi-fi so Brad and I will no longer be fighting for computer time - at least when he brings his laptop home from work.

My intention was to get caught up on blogs, but my first stop was Coming2Terms which led to the International Infertility Film Festival which led me to all kinds of fun (and some tears) on You Tube. I was just getting warmed up when my sister and her husband showed up for dinner. We invited them over to help just in case we had problems getting the high speed set up. We were ok, but Hoan did help us get our system encrypted. Thanks Hoan!

Then we were off to see Transformers. Parts of the movie were good and parts were goofy or just plain lame. Early in the movie there is a scene where some soldiers can't wait to go home. One comments about how he can't wait to hold his little girl for the first time blah blah blah. I admit, I was feeling a bit sensitive already, but when he told his wife over internet video, "We made a beautiful baby together," I walked out. Brad and I won't be making a beautiful baby together. Hopefully we will be raising a beautiful baby together which I know is more important, but at that moment all I heard was, "Not me." Come on! Wouldn't you think that Transformers would be a reproductively safe movie? It was like stubbing your toe in the middle of the night. The pain really isn't that bad, you just aren't mentally prepared for it.

Anyway, we got back home at around 11:00 and I did hit a couple of blogs, but since I haven't had enough sleep in weeks, I really must get to bed.

Very cool that you're up on highspeed wi-fi and glad to hear that you enjoyed the IFFF (hint: I make a cameo appearance in Bea's video wearing a Michigan shirt with the Rose Bowl behind me.)

More importantly, I want to say that I know how daunting the decisions you and your husband face are. I also know from reading your blog that your previous experiences have forged you into a strong person capable of taking what life throws at you. I feel privileged to be in a position to see what comes next!

Kami, thanks for your visit to my blog (and your comment).

Ditto what Pamela Jeanne said. You've been through the fire in ways most are never tested, and you are strong and wise in ways you may not even know yet.

Yippee for high speed and wi-fi!
