Long Weekend

It's unseasonably hot in Boston. It was over 90 degrees (32 for you C people) today. It was almost 90 yesterday. It's hot tonight. We have a window AC unit in our TV room upstairs from our bedroom. It's too early to install the units on the other floors (read: we're too lazy) so we're going to sleep in the TV room tonight. There's a futon up there. The Red Sox are in rain delay, and I'm crocheting this cute bunny.

Tomorrow is my niece H's 8th birthday party. We got her some books, a game book and some cute flip-flop/sandals that are pink and sparkly. She should like them (I hope.) Sunday we are having dim sum with our friends S&R. They know that we're going through IVF now, but they don't know about our failed second cycle, so I suppose we're going to have to tell them. Not really looking forward to that. I also realize that one of my sisters-in-law knows that #2 failed and one doesn't, so I'm going to have to tell them too, I guess. It doesn't go well when one knows something that the other doesn't know. Don't want to make anyone feel 'left out.' Then on Monday we're going to an arts festival north of Boston. I guess we're keeping busy.

I've started looking for other jobs and I sent out 2 resumes already. I'm feeling really down about my job, so looking makes me feel better. Even if I don't leave my job or don't hear anything from these other jobs, it makes me feel like I'm trying to do something. I'm also not looking in my current field. I used to be a teacher, and I'm thinking of doing something more educationally oriented. There are also many colleges in this area and I'm thinking of trying to get a job at one of them so I can at least be around education.

My meds are ordered and will be here a week from Monday. I have to call up the PGD place and set that whole thing up again. We have to pay to ship the biopsied cells to the PGD place. I can't believe this is about to happen again.

Good luck staying cool. That festival sounds like fun. I'd consider inviting myself along, except we're doing an unusually good job of keeping busy this weekend too :) (Unfortunately, I think Monday's plans involve babies, but that's another story.) I'm happy to hear that things are moving forward with your next cycle, and that you're starting to consider other job options. It sounds like that could be really good for you.

Good luck with the job search, and the new protocol. I can imagine how hard it must be to face PGD again, but it's good that your doctor seems to be full of ideas. That's the kind of support that you need right now.

Wow, it's been hotter in Boston than it has been in the North Carolina piedmont!

I understand about the whole telling relatives things. On my side, it doesn't matter if some know and some don't, but on D's side, it's all or nothing. We've opted for nothing but his immediate family. Take care this weekend, you've got a lot of things coming up.

I hope you have had a great weekend!

Good luck with the job search. If I can find a million or two at home, I will let you know so you can get in on it with me!

I hope that you new protocol brings you success with this cycle.
