I'm Back

I didn't expect to be gone so long.  

So much has happened in the time since my last post. 

I am going to spread out talking about it so I actually get my butt back into the blogging every day gear.

But the first awesome event was the arrival of our "IVF twins"...a.k.a. the two kittens we adopted in immediate response to not getting knocked up after our actual IVF.

So may I present.....Milo

And Lizzie (after getting into our sooty fireplace)....

So for those of you counting that is FOUR cats.  I keep feeling like I need to also mention that I have a husband whenever I bring up the fact that I now have FOUR cats.  Like that somehow makes it better.   FOUR!

Speaking of the other two .... Newman and Grace are not happy.  It's only been a month so here's hoping they learn to love the kittens.  It's so weird seeing teeny tiny little Liz all brave near big FAT Grace and it's Grace that is scared.    

Tomorrow's post - The first pregnancy announcement since my failed IVF or What not to say to an infertile friend when presenting the news of your easy conception.


  1. Welcome Baaaaack. :-) Your IVF twins are gorgeous...and may I reinforce that you are NOT becoming a crazy cat lady...really.


  2. Aw good to see you writing again! i love the kittens! I have two but could easily have four! they are so cute!

  3. I have eight right now! We live on a 3.5 acre piece of land, near several farms and people drop their kittens off. (Which I think is terribly inhumane.) I feel bad for them, so I feed them. I'll see them a lot for a while (when they're hungry and in the winter), then I won't see them for a few months. Your ktitens are cute!

  4. Teenage kittens. Awesome!

    We got a kitten last year, very much in response to repeated IVF failures. (My husband was adamant that we only have two--lest I become a cat lady even with a man in the house--so we got McNulty (kitten) after Ender (old kitty) died.) It was one of the best things we could have done. It's just so nice to have something unequivocally GOOD happen in my life. Glad to see you're doing the same.

    Hope they work out with your older cats. McNulty still spends half his day jumping on Valentine (old kitty/wimp). Drives her crazy. I feel bad, but have no way of really stopping it.

    Can't wait to see your next "What Not to Say" post. Been there so hard.

  5. Welcome back. And, we have five cats.

  6. Sounded by cat ladies! I love it!

    And as for McNulty - we're half way through The Wire Season three. What took me so long to watch this show?!?!

  7. I'm really happy to see you blogging again. I've been checking this site a lot and was really sad every time I saw no new welcome back!

    (oh and ignore the new "profile" - for some reason I can't get the recovering actress to show up right now... but it's me, Suz...)
