I feel like I've been doing abdominal crunches. However, I have not done a crunch in a few years and I'm pretty sure my "abs" are hidden under some "padding". I am happy that I am feeling something while stimming so far. I'm sure I'm in for some more fun but at least I know the meds are properly being administered because my body is responding somehow...
DH and I have booked our hotel room for Sunday night and are excited for Monday's appointment - I got the addresses for TJ Maxx and Gordmann's (to plug into the Garmin) so we can shop when we get there. I haven't been to at TJ Maxx since I was a kid and I've always wanted to go to Gordmann's. Besides, we've been to Marshall's enough times that I figure he'll want to look for that elusive pair of sweats he's been searching for as if they're the freaking holy grail. He is picky about sweats, people. They must be comfortable. They must be long. And they must be inexpensive. Now I love a shopping challenge, but he's on his own for this one. It'll also keep him occupied while I'm looking at other stuff.
Who needs professional therapy? I have retail therapy - with a very small budget, mind you - and retail therapy is much more affordable.
And now, for your viewing pleasure, some random pictures that make me smile:
|This was Bella last week. |
I wanted to use my new crock pot but she had other ideas.
|I think I want this ski mask. |
At the same time, I think I'll freak a lot of people out while shoveling snow.
I can't tell if that's a good thing or a bad thing.
|Bridesmaid dresses FAIL.|
Speaking of bridesmaid dresses, my step-sister's wedding is Easter weekend this year. First of all, some of the Catholics in my family (and my in-laws) are appalled she would pick this weekend for her wedding and keep saying that "the church won't marry them, you know." Yeah. She and her fiance aren't Catholic, so that works out for them I guess. But that's the weekend DH's parents and sister/her husband, DH and I drive to Indiana to visit DH's brothers and kids. So that sucks and his parents aren't too happy about that. Sorry.
But I have to pay the remainder of the bill for my bridesmaids dress tomorrow. I don't like the dress. It's strapless, black, and knee-length. Oh well. I know some of my bridesmaids (consisting of my 3 step-sisters, DH's sister and my BFF) didn't like the dress I picked out for them so fair's fair. I just PRAY I'm 4+ months pregnant at that point and can wear that thing with a cute baby bump. Otherwise I'll just look fat - at least I ordered it one size bigger than I was in August. So here is a tribute to ugly bridesmaid dresses! I'll keep it short. But I like funny pictures, don't you?
|Wouldn't you want your face blurred out?|
|I'll bet these looked dyno-mite! under the disco ball.|
|The tanorexia girl makes the dress look better - or is it just me?|
|Sorry but you can't "make it work" with that. Any of that. Day-um!|
(Also, I can't tell if they're chicks or dudes. Can you?)
Enjoy your Friday ladies and I wanna make a special shout-out to those cycling right now - IVF rocks, right?!?!?
Fist pump if you're with me!
