Bad Blogger **Updated**

Yup that's me. I apologize for the hiatus. My job has been crazy. I've been traveling for work to exotic places like Southern Illinois!

No offense of course. If I look out my bedroom all I see for miles is cornfield too.

Anyways. Nothing new has happened. EXCEPT! This girl:

Celebrated a BIRTHDAY! Woohoo. Just multiply those candles by 10 and add 1.

Look at how freaking cute I was! Shouldn't I procreate? I think so too.

31 seems so much more depressing than 30 for some reason. I was still so close to 29 you know? Those optimal baby making twenties are now far out of view. Sigh. Obviously, infertility has sucked all joy out of birthdays.

On Monday, I will have both a Laproscopy and a Hysterscopy done. I will have a uterine catheter taped to my thigh. Lucky for me I get to drive 6.5 hours to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan two days later to give a speech... with a catheter taped to my thigh.

Let me tell you how excited I am about that. I am keeping my fingers crossed that these procedures do not leave me in too much pain. Any experiences out there?

Thanks for the concerns on working so soon after the procedure. Unfortunately, its a little too late to back out of the work commitment now. However, I did convince a handsome younger man to drive me so I can relax on the drive. (Yes, my husband likes to point out the fact I'm 4 months older than him from the March-June period. It's a special time for him.)

Now we just have to hope that I can operate a computer and projector while on Darvocet, and speak without any obvious drooling or lapse of consciousness.

Oh and Happy St. Paddy's Day to all! You might notice that I am a fan of all things IRISH and typically I'd be elbows deep in Guinness. But this year I'm taking a break from the shenanigans due to oldness and tiredness. So it begins.



  1. I'm 31 too, and I agree, it sounds so much older than 30! Like, last year I could say "oh, I just turned 30," but now I'm officially IN my 30s. Blah. there any way out of that speech? Because I, at least, needed a couple of weeks of resting up (& taking Vicodin) following mine. I'm an extraordinarily slow healer, but least can someone else drive you?? Go easy on yourself!

  2. Ok from my perspective 31 is super young! :)

    Happiest of Birthdays to you!

  3. Happy belated birthday! I'm with Willow on trying to get out of that speech - two days is just not enough time to recover.
