Today marks day 2 of administering shots to myself! It's fairly easy and allows me to live out the fantasy of being a doctor without the student loan debt of medical school. So far, things have gone well and I haven't slipped and stabbed J or anything like that. Also, this medication is in a… Continue reading Shots, shots, shots!
While we are thankful to be home after several weekends of travel, we had an absolutely amazing time in Las Vegas. I'm happy to say that we did not let Vegas beat us, though J did get his ID and one credit card stolen at the pool, along with his favorite t-shirt. Apparently, we aren't… Continue reading Vegas Recap….
"Huh, that's weird." Exactly what you want to hear when someone is swirling an ultrasound wand around your vagina. But, I've become slightly used to it. Today was my appointment for a baseline ultrasound and to pick up all my drugs (and learn how to administer them). It was also another time when I got… Continue reading Another episode of “huh, that’s weird”
J and I went to D.C. last weekend to see Kelly and Matt get married. We arrived late Thursday night after quite possibly the worst flight I've ever had. There were intense storms across the country and then we had to circle D.C. due to air traffic for an hour. I took that time to… Continue reading Washington D.C. Is for lovers

Plus, I've got a shot at winning my dignity back in Vegas, so that would be great. I'll learn from my past mistakes and employ the following strategies:… Continue reading Wedding Time!

Maybe it's just because reading about things and anticipating updates is different than actually being in the situation. Anyway, I went in on Thursday for a "mock embryo transfer." I think I'm a fairly prepared person, but… Continue reading The Blue Tarp….and other new things.
I picked up my birth control today! It feel so surreal that this is how the process starts. I talked to the doctor's office yesterday to go over the process. My first concern was that I didn't want to travel with injectible medication to either DC or Vegas and I let them know that. We've… Continue reading Here we go!
So, most of the people who read this are my family which means that they do not share the same musical tastes as myself. That being said, my musical taste is eclectic and borderline "decent" at best (terrible at worst). I do try to stay abreast of the top 10 albums in the country, just… Continue reading Popular things…and how they become popular.
If you've ever been around me and dogs, you will know that I always let them lick my face. This is usually met with a lesser version of disgust (even from those I love), but that's fine. Letting dogs lick your face raises their self esteem and enhances the trust between both of you. After… Continue reading Can dogs empathize?
