We are ready to have a baby. Well, I guess as ready as we will ever be. I will be 34 this September, and my ovaries aren't getting any younger.

My best friend from college, who is pregnant, told me about a website called . This site helps you track your ovulation, and will even email you reminders to get busy. It let me print a calendar--and the days you are fertile have bunny rabbits on them--cute!

Twins run in my husband's family, which scares me a bunch. Don't think we can handle two little babies. I decided that I should find a cool way to tell my husband when I actually get pregnant. He is a Chicago boy and a huge Bears fan, so I bought a newborn one-sie and booties with the Bears logo. When I am pregnant, I will give it to him to let him know!

I hope it isn't hard to get pregnant. I have no interest nor intent to mess with fertility drugs, etc., if it turns out to be difficult. So, I will be counting the days and keeping my fingers crossed.

To blog or not to blog.

That is the question.

When I was in law school (2004), I started a blog. I was too busy and never really got around to writing very much. No one ever read it or knew it existed. But it was fun. It is kind of neat to go back and read what I was thinking, especiall through the hell that was bar review. It is at:
I have three friends who blog. Why do I mention this? Because when friendster emails me that one of them updated their blog (which is rare) I have to read it. I must guiltly confess that I check the sites of the other two folks who blog almost daily. I am a total voyeur. It is just so interesting to me.

My life over the past few years has been such a time of transition, that I decided to get back to it and to start writing things down. Let's see how well I do--I wasn't able to be a regular contributor in my last attempt.

The evolution of Betsy Booth Hill

Did you ever play the game when you were an adolescent, the one where to find out what your porn star name is you take the name of your first pet followed by the name of the street you grew up on?

Betsy Ross, the dog that predated my birth, and stayed with me through middle school. Booth Hill Road, my childhood home.

Thus, my porn name would be Betsy Booth Hill.

Probably wouldn't be a big seller, unless revolutionary war-themed porn makes a comeback.
