Leaving on a Jet Plane!
My spring break has been utterly divine so far. My days have been filled with sleeping, blogging, running errands, cleaning my house, and playing Just Dance 3. Exciting? No. Deliciously lazy? Yes. Hey, after 26 conferences, I have no guilt.
Tonight I head to Los Angeles to see my family and my BFF from high school for 5 days. When I say a BFF I mean it. This is a friend so close to me that in 2008 we traveled together, cross country, for weeks and still love each other madly. That's friendship. Someday I'll blog about that trip. It was a truly amazing, life changing experience.
Since my parents live in the dark ages technology wise, I won't be able to blog. This is making me especially sad, because it is supposed to rain the whole time! The weather gods fucking hate me. Well, at least I'll have time to finally watch Downton Abbey on On Demand.
KG can't go with me on this trip, which makes me sad. I know I have said it before, but I am a lucky girl and I get pretty homesick without him. He swears after about a day of gaming and drinking beer, bachelorhood loses its luster and he gets lonely too. He swears the kitties are sad when I'm gone too. On the upside, he usually does an outstanding cleaning job for me when I go on trips. <hint, hint>
In TTC news, my pre-Lupron ultrasound came back "perfect." I don't know if that word has ever been used to describe my ovaries before. We have the green light to begin Lupron the day after I get back from L.A. IVF #2 will be underway next week!
I am really trying to swallow my fears about this cycle, and focus on it as a fresh start. That is a really hard goal to meet though. Although I know many people who needed multiple IVFs to succeed, I don't know any who had failed fertilization, who went on to have babies. Here's hoping that ICSI is the answer.
By the way, if you haven't headed over to Stirrup Queens for Mel's Toasts, do it now. It will make someone's day and is just the burst of positivity this community needs.
I haven't attached a song to a post for a little bit.
Today's choice is the newest single from Jack White, "Love Interruption."
When the White Stripes first emerged, I didn't like Jack White at all. But, over the years, he has really proved himself to be a musical genius. He plays tons of instruments (a la Prince) and is a chameleon style wise. If you have never listened to his other bands, especially The Raconteurs, you are really missing something incredible.
