This goes out to any (fertile) friends who read this post who may have been offended by my Christmas card rant.
My excuse: I was very premenstrual and pissed off by my lack of kids in my life.
The truth: I'd love to send out cards with pics of my progeny. Period. I'm a jealous bitch. So sue me!
More truth: Those of us suffering from infertility are super sensitive. We're like that super PC female friend in college that didn't like to be referred to as a Freshman and always corrected other people when they called the elite single-sex institution we attended a "girls school" ("It's a women's college!"). Just be aware that we're going through a total sh*t time of this. Think eggshells, folk. Eggshells. Sorry. It's just the way it is.
Last word: I love you all, whether you have children or not. Keep the cards coming. I truly didn't mean to offend anyone.
P.S. I do stand by my wish that you all would actually sign cards. But who am I to complain. I didn't send out cards this year. Maybe I'll send New Years cards, like they do in France. Love that tradition.
