Sorry to disappoint you all with my lack of blogging of late. I've been
busy. No, really.
You see, I found that in the end, when you know your free time is
limited, that the Days Of Leisure are coming to an end, you find
yourself rushing to cram it all in. So I saw my last two afternoon
movies, fit in a consult about IVF (you adore the way I just casually
throw that in, don't you?) and spent some precious time with Val last
It's that time with her that I will mourn, those 2 full days each week
of just us. We hit storytimes, played at the mall all day (it's amazing
how many kid-oriented stores not only have totally bitchin toys out for
kids to try, but have nice bathrooms as well), went to the park, saw
movies and just hung out. I'm tucking all those days away in my Bank Of
Awesome Memories so I can pull them back out when she's a teenager
filled with rage and angst.
Somewhere along the way, I started having a blast playing hockey again.
Not that it hadn't been fun, it still was, but apparently I was in a bit
of a hockey lull. That, I think, is partially caused by the whole still
not pregnant thing. When I'm less tired, maybe I'll delve more into
Speaking of that, I cannot thank you enough for not really asking about
the whole still not pregnant thing. It's so heartbreaking each time (11
attempts with escalating efforts now, for those following along at home)
that I just don't have the room in my heart to mourn each attempt *and*
explain how sad we are at the same time.
I started the new job yesterday. In the training, they suggested that
missing about 2 hours per month for personal appointments would be
acceptable. I'm not sure how the hell I'm going to work around that for
RE appointments, of which there are roughly 4-6 per cycle.
The good news is that it appears like I'll be able to work from home 1
day a week.
I'm sure you wanna know all about the job but the internets are so
small, so small that a fun co-worker from be.yond is working with me in
the new gig! Woo! So I'll share not too much.
It's a lot like my old job. In fact, I have to drive past my old job to
get there. That smarts more than a bit. Hello, place of good benefits,
let me drive up the road now.
But I think this will be a decent job, doing most of the same things I
did before, only for the Really Big Company up the road. I'll keep you
And now, dear readers, I'd better rouse the sleeping people and get us
all to the airport because we're off to TN for Thanksgiving. Sonic,
Waffle House, please save me a seat!
