What Are YOU Waiting to Do?

I'm curious to know what you other TTC women are waiting to do while you're out hunting for a sticky bean. It's so hard to plan sometimes, isn't it? Because, after all, you might have a new addition in 9 months...and then again, you might not. So what are you waiting to do?

Here's what I'm waiting to do:
  • Plan vacation time for 2008. I get three weeks this year...but if we end up with a baby on the way, I want to save it to use when I go on maternity leave, to have an extra three weeks off then, in addition to the 6-8 weeks post-delivery. But after another three months, when it becomes certain that even a preemie 2008 baby just ain't gonna happen, I'll use my time on other trips/for other reasons.
  • Decide to go back to school. Grad school, that is. I would like to begin pursuing my MSHRM, but...if I end up with a baby due during the fall term, why would I apply to begin then?
How about you?

Hugs,

My life, almost my whole life is on hold.
Can't plan vacations, just in case i get pg, and therefore we have not had a vacation since we got married (can't count visiting parents as a vacation).
Painting the spare bedroom/ soon to be nursery.

Ahh the waiting game.
Putting off holiday as *might get pg* - very familiar
Waiting for 2ww's to end so i can continue using strong chemicals on house renovations. Rest of renovations on hold as may need the money for IVF
Waiting to have oral surgery that I could have had for free by now but i thought I *might get pg* so i put it off for over a year, now I have to pay $1500 to get it done quickly.
Not sure if I will take up tempory teaching job I had last year as sick days (ie endless medical appointments) extremely inconvenient to students as classes might get cancelled for DAY.
MY LIFE IS EITHER ON HOLD OR IN LIMBO AND TO TOP IT OFF I CAN'T JUST HAVE A BACARDI&COKE AND FORGET ABOUT IT AS I'M ON A 2WW!

Yikes - I forgot about dental work - thanks for reminding me. I was supposed to have my wisdom teeth out over a year ago and have root canal/crown work done. Yeah. Keep putting it off on a "what if".
