Hey everybody! It’s your long lost blogger friend – me! Hello? Anyone out there? I know, I am terrible (Muriel) but I am just soooooooooooooooooo busy. You wouldn’t believe it. But try. Please?
I have phoned Vita.lab on Monday to make my first IVF appointment, and they can only see me on the 4th of July! Crazy huh!? So I have asked them to put me onto a cancellation list.
It wouldn’t be terrible, because it would give the Hoff and me some time to whip ourselves back into shape. (But I am ready now dammit! ) I have ordered him back onto his various pills and potions and threatened to send him to the dietician. (heehee that always seems to work!) We have made a deal. At the end of every week, I will dress in white and carry a clipboard, and make him weigh himself, and he will have to pay me – I will be the acting dietician! Don’t know if that plan will work, we’ll see.
Anyway, so they (Vitalab, of course – keep up!) sent me a form to fill in for the meantime, and I swear, it’s nine pages long and is very, very in depth. (You should know, Tam!) I am surprised they have not asked for lock of hair for DNA analysis! Anyhoo, I have started gathering all our previous tests and files, so that if the clinic phones, I’ll be ready and waiting!
They must be good though, because our Tam had 16 follies, and eight of them fertilized! You go girlfriend! Please pray or rain-dance or whatever it is that you do to ensure that Tam’s transfer is a riproaring success on Friday!
The (not so) new house is undergoing a major cosmetic overhaul. The poor little hovel is busy falling down, so we have undertaken to revive it. The Hoff is busy re-painting, then we’ll do the floors hopefully (fund-willing). We will probably move in at the end of July.
The New Job is going well – very challenging, but I think we are winning. I am just thankful that I have Debs, we work so much better as a team. We are old birds now, so all this new stuff is quite frightening. 🙂
Oh, and one other thing. I went to the post office a couple of days ago to fetch my crate-load of post. I was rifling through the bills when I spotted a brightly coloured postcard…. then another… and another! I got a whole lot of postcards and cards from the Braces Bunch gals, and it made my day. Thank you so much to those who reached out across the miles. It really was wonderful. I promise to return the love real soon.
Until next month (hopefully sooner), this is Mands signing off. xx
