Back on soy

Nomi can go back to eating soy products. This would theoretically be helpful... if 1) she didn't absolutely refuse to drink soy milk or eat any fake 'dairy' soy things, like pudding.... and 2) not all of the soy products contained egg (which is out).

In other, more exciting news, my sister named her baby yesterday. Her name is Kinneret Esther (they'll call her Kinneret). My sister & BIL had a tough job, because there are a lot of girls in the family and so far the cousins all have different names. I think even for someone who didn't have fertility issues, it must be hard to be having her first child when her siblings all have many...

OK. My house is officially too crazy for me to continue this post. Nomi must be traumatized by having been taken to the hospital again (just for an appointment, this time). She will not stop screaming.

Edit: A walk helped calm her down. Believe it or not, she's actually asleep now...

And a p.s. - this is what I actually do in true life... (or what I used to do, when I had a life ;-))

Good job - I often run across companies who could use a few of you.

Actually, not having kids wasn't the hard part. Not having a spouse for years and years after everyone else was married with kids was really hard.

Going solo to events or bringing the "latest" is really unpleasant. (especially when I wasn't so sure that "the latest" was anything I wanted to keep.) At least people stopped expecting me to sleep in a room with our parents on getaways... I heard recently about a single who was placed in a room with her parents at age 25+. She refused to go until they readjusted the sleeping arrangements.

And yes, people do ask us singles "so when are you going to settle down?" just as often as people ask infertiles "so when are you going to have a baby?"

And that's not even mentioning the number of people who asked me if I was pregnant back in my single days... "no, just fat, but thanks for asking..."
