Wow! Congrats on making it to 7 1/2 months with such a busy life. Reading posts like yours make me realize how lucky I am and that I really should suck it up and stop fantasizing about quitting everyday ;) Thanks for the reality check!

I still keep up with my DD but would feel better if I had a little more breathing room. TIA
