I spent the weekend blathering like a fool. I was so nervous that everytime my fab American visitors were in the car with me and Meg, I freaked out and got upset about the driving, freaked out and got upset about the parking, or freaked out and cried about my personal inadequacies, both real and imagined.

Or just cried about nothing at all. Cause hey, why not? I need to shed some excess liquid and I'm already peeing every hour on the hour. Time for a new orifice, eh?

Oh, and about that "Eh". Apparently, I have a Canadian accent! The word again was a source of vast amusement on "Penis Tour 2007." Canada is also full of sexual references I never knew about. Like the TTC picture Julia took? Here, it means Toronto Transit Commission. We have subway cars and streetcars that are called Red Rockets. And until they brought it up I'd only ever thought about it once or twice. Same thing for all the orange pylon/cone references.

It was a good distraction anyway. If you will excuse me now, I have to go stress over whether these cramps are just gas, or something more terrifying.

Tomorrow at 9:30 am I find out what the hell, if anything, is growing in my uterus.

It better not be a puppy.


  1. I just stumbled upon this blog and I am intrigued...I know by my limited reading that tomorrow is a big day for you. Best of luck, you will be in my thoughts -

  2. Aw, c'mon -- a puppy would be CUTE!!

  3. Yeah, puppies are soooo cuuuuuute.

    Um, good luck for a normal scan tomorrow.


  4. But what's wrong with a puppy? ;-)

    Seriously, wishing you all the best tomorrow.

  5. I will be waiting anxiously for an update!

    I am sure you were an excellent host, and tour guide. You sound lively to me, and I know I would never be bored while driving with you!

  6. All the best to you tomorrow my dear! I will be checking in on you later...

    hang in there,

  7. Thinking of you. (I love the red rocket reference, by the way...thanks for the much needed laugh!)

  8. Puppies are warm, snuggly -- and you often get more than one! (Plus, I could deliver it for you)

    Stay as calm as you can today. Cause tomorrow will be great, I just have a feeling.

    Thinking of you!

  9. Thinking of you today... Hoping to see some good news for you - finally!

  10. Here's hoping for good news!

  11. Thinking of you - I just said to Josh 20 minutes ago on our car ride home, "Aurelia's sitting in the waiting room right now." Anxiously hoping for some good news.

  12. I'm rooting for you... you're probably there right now.

    Puppies aren't so bad... you can even buy expensive strollers for them these days. And clothes. And probably diapers... who knows?

    I'll be stalking you this afternoon to find out how it went.

  13. I want to comment on the recent news ... good good luck on your visit! I am hoping the very best!!

  14. I am on a guarded wait. The force should be with you. What can I say, when I don't know what to say I get blathering foolish..
