We're compiling a list of all the events and milestones that our members like to keep track of in their lives. For instance, most of us like to keep track of birthdays of family and friends. Parents like to keep a record of when their children hit milestones, such as rolling over, first words, walking, cutting a tooth. And, many of us keep track of our medications, treatments and doctors visits. Members of our Breast Cancer community like to share with others when they have been "Cancer Free" for six months, a year, two years, and on.
Think about what you like to keep track of and milestones you like to share with your family and friends and post them here in this thread. I bet you all keep track of a lot of things our staff would never think of!
It's Monday again! Where do the weekends go to? My father's birthday was this weekend, he shares the same day as Elvis. Spent a lot of time with the family. Which meant, I didn't get a lot of reading time in. The only book I've read in the new year is The Host by Stephanie Meyers. It was really good fiction. What book are you reading or have you read in the new year? Any suggestions for books others might want to read?
How about TTC books, do you have any suggestions for those members just starting out who'd like to read up on TTC?
Have a great start to your week everyone! EmmaView Thread
How manic is your Monday after a holiday weekend? I hope everyone had a great start to their New Year. We spent the new year with family enjoying each other. I loved spending time with my siblings, and parents. I think it's an excellent way to start the New Year, how about you?
This week is Women's empowerment week, I know that sometimes having TTC can be difficult but how are some ways that you help give yourself some empowerment?
I don't know about everyone else, but I think I have a holiday hang over, and no I didn't drink this holiday season. I think it's from the go go go of the season. It's so wonderful to spend time with family though. My sisters and parents and even the extended family makes the holiday so wonderful.
How was your holiday? How Manic are you this morning? What are your plans for New Years? Do you make resolutions and if so what is yours this year?
Have a great week everyone and a Happy New Year! EmmaView Thread
How was your long weekend? Did you hit any black Friday sales? I got a lot of shopping done on Friday, getting up in the wee hours of the morning. I never use to understand that, but having a partner who's mom always did it. He loves it so we've done it the last few years now.

It's Monday, which always seems manic in our household. Today is also my SO's birthday. So it's even more manic here than normal. How was your weekend? What plans do you have for the week ahead?
While we are talking about weeks and manic. This is also National Impotence Month. Sometimes in TTC there is a lot of stress on the men to perform. Some men say it causes them trouble in the bedroom. How much stress do you think is on your partners in the bedroom? Do any of you struggle with your partner having impotence from time to time?
