getting festive with it
Yesterday I went to the OB for a follow-up visit from the miscarriage. According to my doctor, I need to have two normal periods and then we can start trying again. I should have a period 4-6 weeks from the date of the D&C. Should. So from here I am just going to pray that I have two normal periods on schedule and can start trying again soon. I guess until then there is nothing left for me to do but wait and hope. It it’s hard because I feel like so many people are pregnant both in my real life and in the blog world. I am so truly happy for all of them but it still stings a little when I think about where I am. But I also know that I am lucky to have what I do have (read: my amazing husband) And again, as always, thank you for the amazing support.
I am not sure if anyone has noticed but it’s almost the holidays.
Believe me, if you live in Texas you haven’t noticed. Hello we’re still in the freaking 80’s.
And for the record “freaking” was not the word I wanted to use there.
I know. I know. When it gets really cold here (you know like in the 40’s) I will be complaining and moaning and wishing for these 80 degree temps back. But today I’m not. Today I want some fall chill. I am tired of the excessive heat we seem to be having in these Southern parts.
I mean it can’t be normal to be in shorts, a tank top and flip-flops in November.
And yes, I realize all my twitter friends who are posting pictures of snowfall hate me.
I can’t win.
But I can pretend to be in the fall festive spirit. Right?
I can even forget my dislike for pumpkin and make pumpkin cookies.
Because they smell like fall and the Holidays and all the things it is supposed to be in November!
That’s why Dammit!
Sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do to get some fall feeling into your life. Because Mother Nature clearly missed the memo.
