what's happening?

Since there's really nothing new to report about my lady parts (I'm on my fourth day of Femara. Woo!), I figured I would do a general "life" update to end the week:
  • Our couch is being delivered tomorrow, which means that I will finally start to post before and after pictures of the house. It also means that my husband and I can stop trying to squeeze our fat asses on the tiny loveseat that's going to reside in the guest room.
  • Joey is out of town this weekend, helping my mom move my brother out of his dorm room, but I won't be alone. Harley (my miniature dachshund) is coming to stay the weekend since my mom will be gone, and my best friend will be spending the night, too.
  • Also happening this weekend: I am taking the GRE. I've been studying, but I am still very nervous about the math section. My math skills were never great, and I haven't done some of this stuff in years. Ugh.
  • Yesterday marked three weeks until New York City! I could not be more excited/ready to take this vacation. We are leaving at the end of my 2WW, too, so the distraction from all of the infertility stuff will be nice.
  • We found out today that our first-time homebuyer's tax rebate is going in the mail next week. This is GREAT news since we are flat broke. You are welcome, Home Depot, for the boost in your sales.
That is pretty much it. Exciting stuff, huh? I hope everyone has a good weekend. I'll save my sappy, "woe is infertile me" Mother's Day post for Sunday.

You have so many exciting things coming up! Yay for your tax rebate, new couch, and breezing through the GRE (which I know you will do, math and all)!

Have a fun sleepover with your friend!

Good luck with the GRE; I can't remember if I took the GRE or the GMAT, but whichever it was, the math portion definitely made me feel dumb! I have never been good at math, and my skills certainly aren't better with age!

Have a good girls/dog weekend! I used to have a mini dachshund; they are so funny-like little clowns!

Jin said...

I took the GRE in 2008 I think. Scored higher on the math by 10 points than the English. And I hate math! So bizzare. Jealous of the new couch! We have one that was fine for our apartments, but isn't enough seating for when folks are over and they discontinued the line before we could get the matching loveseat. Grrr! Have a great weekend!

Rach said...

Wow, lots going on this weekend! The day my couch was delivered (I was single then), I took a nap on it that afternoon with the patio screen open (ah the breeze), and I woke up with drool on the pillow! The sign of an awesome nap! Hope you can take one after the GRE!

Good luck on your GRE's! So jealous of your homeowner rebate, we bought 6 months too soon! Have a great weekend.

Crossed Fingers said...

Good luck on the GRE!!

Jessica said...

Good luck on the GRE!!!

suchagoodegg said...

This is good stuff Katie. You will rock the GRE...but I agree with you that Math stuff is not my fave. Luckily, you are a beautiful writer and master wordsmith and you will overachieve on the verbal part, I am 110% sure. :) xo

Rebecca said...

Woohoo for the rebate! GL on the GRE!

Dear Diary said...

Yayyyy!!! I'm glad that you are doing better =) can't wait to see the pictures. Praying for you this cycle!

MrsShoffernan said...

Good luck with the GRE!!! Have fun with your bestie, it's always nice to have some girl time!

Also, ditto on the "woe is infertile me Mother's Day". Is Bahumbug appropriate? If not, it's definitely the sentiment.

JC said...

I hope you have a good weekend! I can't wait to see the before/after pics. And I had to laugh at your "fat asses" comment about the loveseat...your ass is so NOT fat, lol. ;)

Getting my first time homebuyers credit was a pretty happy day for me... Have fun with that one!

And good luck with the GRE lady! Standardized tests really scare me, but I am sure you are going to do so great!

Secret Sloper said...

Good luck with the GRE! I'm awful at math, too, and was sure I had bombed it but I wound up doing okay.

If you want any tips on things to do in NYC, e-mail me (parkslopepurgatory(at)gmail(dot)com). I've lived here for 12 years all around the city.

Hope you had a good weekend. I saw your tweet on the GRE, so congrats! That's a big deal!
You'll have to share some more house pics as everything comes together!
