Leinenkugel Nostalgia

This beer tastes like College. Don't you love when senses can transport you in time?

Well, this Leinenkugel is taking me back to simpler times back before I knew my uterus looked like the surface of the moon and my eggs pitiful crybabies that don't do what they are told.

Tonight is for nostalgia I've decided. My husband got on a plane this morning off to Tel Aviv for 2 weeks. I miss him already.

Instead of my initial game plan of wallowing in self pity followed by a long stint plugged into my XBOX360, I've decided to summon a shadow of my former self.

I've thrown the snowman fleece jammies in the wash, and put on real clothes. (Bonus points for actually still fitting into my fav jeans!)

My cousin and I are going out to see a Tool Cover Band that will probably be God-awful but it'll be good fun to hang out with other people. They won't know that I am actually an INFERTILE HERMIT. Maybe I can forget for a night.

OK, just for a second I'm reverting back to INFERTILE HERMIT MODE:(**CCRM consult went well. I may have a crush on Dr. Surrey's personality, he was funny and warm without sounding like he was forcing it. I am starting to save my pennies. Due to the surgery and my ridiculous work schedule it looks like we are now shooting for July for the Stim cycle). END REVERT.

Bring on 1999 Reese. We're going out!

Anticipating Delays

Whew. Its been busy around here. I just got back from Texas and was disappointed to find everything appeared to be of normal size.

No matter how much I bitch about having to travel for my job (sorry N8). I do enjoy airports. I love people watching. My favorites included:

1. An absolutely beautiful British woman and her equally beautiful daughter. They were having the cutest conversations and she had a gorgeous long green jacket with an inlaid flower design that I was salivating over.
2. A Texan man on the shuttle bus, who boasted loudly about his apparent video work with the Superbowl. I think he was trying to impress the lady sitting next to him. It was pretty amusing.
3. An ~50 year old woman with the most amazing length of blond hair down to near her knees that was very carefully barrel curled. She was also wearing stone wash Brittanica Jeans and a Winnie the Pooh Sweatshirt. I was fairly certain she hopped a plane from 1983.

Now you will all think that people are staring at you while you are at the airport, and you would be right. I will be the moody looking 30 year old wearing an old band t-shirt, hooded sweatshirt pulled over her head, and ipod buds; looking like I think I'm cooler than I really am.

In infertility news, I have been scheduled for my UTE Cut-up on March 21st. I was kind of pissed that they had me wait to schedule until my period showed up only to delay me another month and inform me they'll have to put me on birth control. They couldn't have done this last month because.....

On Monday I have my consult with CCRM. I am pretty excited to spend my Valentine with Dr. Surrey @ 6:30 p.m. EST. I think I'll light some candles and pretend its a real date. I mean he may end up knocking me up so the least I can do is light some candles right? ...

Happy Valentines Day to all of you. I hope you all hug your loved ones tight.
