This afternoon my good friend AJ pointed out that "while perusing my blog she happened to notice that the Mister and I have been married for 3 years, 3 months, 3 weeks and 3 days and to go out to dinner or something!" I wish we could but of couse Steve is working tonight. So I am going to Applebee's with my Mom and then returning to the house to cuddle up on the couch and get me some pug love and watch the rest of the Big Love dvds I rented.
Yep, RENTED from BLOCKBUSTER! I know what you're thinking. "Does Blockbuster still exist?" or "Redbox & Netflix are so like totally WAY cheaper" (not sure why I imagined that in a valley girl voice, oh well) Welp, Redbox does not have season 1 of Big Love, and Steve rules the roost when it comes to netflix. Since he has no desire to watch the show, I knew it would never make it to the top of the Netflix cue....therefore, WAAA-LAAA I rented it from Blockbuster. Oh and it was even a rewards day so I got 4 DVDs for the price of 2. $5 later and I have the 1st ten episodes to watch til my hearts content (or ready for the next ones)
In another wierd association with 3's...Today is 3 days past IUI #4b. The IUI's were successful, painful, and associated with a good amount of bloatiness and cramping. The 1st one hubby had to work, so my lovely friend Sandi held my hand while I had the procedure. I was pretty uncomfortable after, and I even spotted a little (which hasn't happened before). Tuesday's went better than I expected. She said to take some extra strength tylenol because it would probably be more uncomfortable that the 1st one and to expect Steve's count to be cut in half. We were pleasantly surprised to find out his count had more that DOUBLED and the pain was just about the same as the 1st one (thank you Tylenol!)...Now we wait.
We followed protocol exactly as written. I think this is our best shot yet. Even Steve was a little more optimistic about this one!
If this worked (please, oh please Lord!) then we will find out on my 31st birthday (Feb 4th).
In other news, I'm excited to be going to the Plymouth Ice Festival this weekend with Pril. We're going to freeze. We're going to dress in layers, and soothe our frozen insides with hot chocolate. It's going to be super fun! Pictures to follow I'm sure!
