Yesterday I woke up at 5:30 a.m., 45 minutes later than planned, and RUSHED out the door to get on the road to the clinic.  Fortunately, I didn’t get stuck in the worst of morning rush hour, so I did my lab work, ultrasound, and made it back home by 10:30 a.m. 436 more words

John was the first person I knew I definitely wanted to have kids with.
