I LOVE birthdays! And I try to make mine last as long as possible!! This time it's going on for 3 days.
Saturday was a very fun game day with some friends & ice cream cake. Hey, why not? :) Sunday was fun too with a bike ride around town to church, farmer's market & then a massage and lots of time in the sun!
Husband did lots of grocery shopping & dishes, which was wonderful!!!
And today, I get to enjoy the day off for my birthday, which is something I've never done. I plan to go to my beloved bik.ram hot yoga class - a daytime one which I also never experience. And then I've been saving a Jhum.pa La.hiri book, Un.accustomed Ear.th to take to a coffee shop with me where I hope I can snag a cozy chair... and I may get a pedicure. B and I are still deciding whether to go out or stay in (he's a great cook!) so either way, it's going to be a fabulous day!
On the IF front, with my period making an appearance on Saturday, it at least left the guessing game out of the weekend but also had a couple of tearful moments. We talked about the next IUI, which would be the 3rd and while I wasn't ready to start getting Day 3 bloodwork on my bday, we'll start the next cycle. That's progress. And we have counseling this week, Wed to help us through some of these decisions.
For my birthday wish when I blew out my candles this year, instead of hoping for a baby, I wished for peace. I want a peaceful year. I want to focus on 'me' things and 'us' things. I want us to have fun and enjoy life. Woohoo!
