Galactagogue, for the win
I've been taking fenugreek for its galactagogic benefits. Galactagogue is one of my new all-time favorite words. Fenugreek makes me smell like maple syrup. As Steve commented, "[Fenugreek] helps with milk production and keeps Norah coming back for more with that winning maple syrup taste."
Steve is so great. One week from today will mark our tenth anniversary. I thought then and I think now that I am the luckiest girl to ever live to have won such a grand prize as my husband. One week ago today Steve was offered a job that will take him far away from the "law firm" life. He has been floating around, all cloud-nine-like, with a perma-grin ever since. His new job is at BYU. We are excited, but in our family, I tend to be the one who makes arrangements and does all things money. I'm nervous about whether our house will ever sell because every which way I turn all I hear about is Dow Jones down two hundred points, subprime market falling out, jumbo mortgage rates at 8 percent, saturated housing market, blah blah blah. What if we buy a new house in Utah, and then have to pay on two mortgages for a year because we can't give away our Phoenix house? Worst-case scenario, but financial risks make me nervous. I think I like other kinds of risk, sometimes.
Anyway, we're moving! That's our news. Utah, for the win.
