Stunned realization of the day:

I don't have a ticking biological clock...I have a ticking biological time bomb.

Realization #2:

I suddenly went from dragging my way through the first 2 hours of work to only 2 1/2 more to go. The middle 4 hours just disappeared, for which I am profoundly greatful.


Matt and I have been having uber-strange conversations for us lately. The marriage and baby questions are still scary, but suddenly he is all over the joint checking account thing. I told him I want to keep my own small checking account, and he was confused. My big thing is that he freaks out when I spend my own money on non-essentials - what would happen if I spent OUR money on $45 worth of knitting needles? I shudder to think.

I am glad that he's been looking into this, though. I would like to have most of the money in one place, and just pay the bills from there. Especially since I feel that my resolution to pay internet and cable is creeping up higher than his phone and gas/electric. Maybe this will help me be a little more fiscally responsible. Who knows. But it's one more sign that he's in it for the long haul.

I'm so freaking boring by the way. Dear God, who talks about joint checking accounts? Oh well, it's my diary and I'll whine about boring stuff if I want to!
