Surviving the snow

For all of you worried about me and Rachel on the roads last night - we survived!  Actually the interstate was pretty clear by the time we were on it.  AWESOME CONCERT.  Ryan Bingham and the Dead Horses, and opened by The Silent Comedy (which was so good I bought their CD) and Liam Gerner.  Juts a single guy and his guitar from South Australia but he was good too!  Any-who, Ryan was still going strong at 12:30 so us old folks decided to head out early because we were tiiiiiiired.  (Hey, we had been standing in that theater since 8:30.  That's 4 solid hours of standing,.  Plus we had an hour drive home)

Of course Rachel was especially tired... no test has come up positive but she's got all the symptoms she had in her previous pregnancy.  We debated between which test brands were the best so I got her a box of EPT and First Response Early Detection.  And a balloon.  But that's just for fun because it made me smile.  :)  I've been waffling between excited certainty and cautious realisticness. and to be honest, even once we get a positive test I'm going to be holding my breath until the blood tests show good doubling, and then I'll be on pins and needles until the heartbeat ultrasound... GAH!  And I wont really be able to take a deep breath until we are past the first trimester.

Even with all this worry talk, I'm sure I'll be squealing with joy when we do finally get a positive HPT. :)

Waiting, waiting, waiting.... It's the Dr.Seuss book but in real life.  And less colorful.  At least I have a new CD to distract me  :D  Seriously, if you like texas-style rocking country, check out their website


  1. Glad you had a good time at the concert!

    The 2ww is so hard. Ugh. Hoping and praying for a BFP for you/Rachel!

  2. So glad that the roads weren't too bad and that you were able to enjoy the show. I'll check out that band... they sound great.

  3. Thanks ladies. It's been interesting to be included in a 2WW but know that it isn't my body... This must be what it was like for Scott to stand on the outside as I drove myself a tad insane. Hu. Poor guy. And definitely check out the band :) Their website is and if you search for them on youtube there are a lot of "bootlegged" videos from their concerts which is fun, to get a feel of how they were live.

  4. I'm pretty sure I used to date a guy who used to play drums for The Silent Comedy. Looking at their website, I guess he's not with them anymore, but yeah... Weird.
