Fertility update: my period came yesterday. I'm pretty bummed about it. I'm trying not to think about it, but I find myself crying over things that shouldn't be cried, perhaps I should just have one long cry and then move on to the next cycle. I had hoped that I would have had beginner's luck with the injections. I'm not looking forward to the next few weeks of blood draws. I don't mind the injections or the vaginal ultrasounds. It's the blood draws that really get me. I don't like them. At all. It probably has everything to do with my "donating" plasma back in the college days. I didn't have a job and that was my only cash flow--I didn't know that my veins would pay for it...every time I have it drawn.

Yesterday was spent in preparation for my Grandparents arriving today. We were up until 1am getting ready. Well, actually, Tyler was working on a project for his MBA until 1 am and I didn't want to go to bed without him, so I cleaned furiously until 1am. The alarm going off this morning at 7:30am was notsofun. But somehow I've made it the whole day without a nap. (is that smart or dumb?)

Grandma & Grandpa arrived around 5:30pm. We had a lovely meal of chicken enchiladas, refried beans, spanish rice, & corn. We showed them around our house and our lovely backyard and garden. Then we had some angel food cake with cream & strawberries, because Anna couldn't wait any longer. Anna went to bed & had stories from Dad while I did some dishes. I had intended to "interview" my grandparents tomorrow morning after breakfast. I have a list of 73 questions about their life's experiences that I wanted to video them answering. Grandpa said he needed more time to think of the answers before the video could happen. That wasn't what I wanted to hear. I had planned to give them the questions beforehand, but I didn't get them all compiled until yesterday...such is the way it goes. I'm planning to go out to visit my sister after her baby girl is born and then I guess I'll do the interview while I'm out there. It's hard for me to get something out of my mind when I want it. I wanted the interview to happen tomorrow. I guess I don't always get what I want. (when have I ever??) ha ha.

I'm sorry. My deepest condolences. That is rough. Please feel free to cry. And call me and cry if you want.

Will your visitors only be there for a short time? Why can't they do the video thing in the afternoon or the next morning?

The dinner sounded yummy. Mmmm
