Operation BFN therapy - step 1

To add insult to injury, I was summoned to jury duty today. They kept me until 2 pm (fascinating process that I was happy to be a part of, but the timing was a bit sucky). I then washed my car (it was super sunny today in NorCal) and then had a mani/pedi. 

Bliss!

Only cloud was that the ladies kept asking their clients, "How many children do you have?" I sat there hoping quietly, "Oh, please don't ask me this. What am I supposed to say? 'I'm barren, I won't ever have kids!'" Luckily, they didn't ask. I buried my head behind the latest Cosm.o and prayed.

Now my toes are a beautiful deep cranberry color and my fingers, a cute pink. I look and feel good.

Step 2 of Operation BFN therapy involves a huge latte and a donut tomorrow morning (after my second "confirmation beta").

Step 3 will take place Saturday here, involving champagne mimosas. Bottomless champagne mimosas. Or manmosas. Or beermosas. Fun?

Good plan, no?

Jem, I hate this for you, but I'm glad you're taking time for yourself - I can't do pedicures because I am VERY ticklish! xoxo

Excellent plan!!!

I wish I lived closer to you so we could make it a double. (Date, that is. All the drinks are assumed to be doubles anyway.)

Considering what you are going through, you are doing SO well. And while I wish that you didn't have to go through this, I also think this pampering sounds amazing. It's just what you need.

Continued hugs and love. <3

Hey, that's my friend you're talking about! "Barren" is like calling a woman "an old maid". Just because you haven't had a baby doesn't mean you have to use such hurtful language about yourself! How about much loved, but not a Mom.

With hot toes....

And great weekend plans...

And, sigh, sun! When 3/4 the country has been hit by an ice storm, sunny and warm is no small thing.
