Plain Jane Mom

83 is a great number. Congratulations! As you know, the next number you get will tell you more and the waiting continues.

This is great news. Try to savor it!:)


Right--I'm with Jane. The first number isn't as important as the fact that the second number doubles. I hope they take it on Saturday so you don't have to wait.


Hey! you totally buried that beta number! I think it sounds perfect, right in the range. Congrats!! I know it's impossible not to worry though.

Your kitties are very cute. We have a cat who is a bit of an asshole too, but I like that he has personality, so many don't.

I've tried every system of organizing and calendaring too. And I will admit - even though I work for a big technology company what makes some of the very software programs you mentioned - I still carry a paper calendar book in my purse and use that to keep track of my life, to-do lists, etc. It just works for me. Here is the one I just bought for 2007 - I love it: http://www.moleskineus.com/pocketweeklyred.html


83 is good, I'm with everybody above as far as doubling being the criteria to look for. And I can see why they would make you wait for Monday, only because doubling can take 48-72 hours at first right? And Saturday would be tight....but I'll cross a few fingers and toes for you anyway.

As for organization, you mentioned PDAs but you didn't mention having a blackberry. My DH lives for his, and the bigger screen on the newer ones is great for seeing larger calendars.


OH WHAT! Beta numbers in the middle of a tag!

You're forgiven this time given the circumstances, you lovely lady yourself :)

I'll be crossing my everythings for the results of the next beta......soooo excited!
