Sunny day.

I'm feeling surprisingly chipper today. I was even able to sit and listen to SS tell me all about her discussion with our boss about her pregnancy and her plans for her maternity leave. (Of course, my listening was basically a closed mouth smile and some "mmm-hmm"s while I multi-tasked and checked my email....)

Why is it surprising? Well, aside from yesterday's post, I had to get up at 5am so that I could go have my baseline u/s and blood tests (CD7 after 4 days of Bravelle, no measurable follicles on the left, one 13mm on the right). 5am is never a happy time for me.

I was in and out in 15 minutes, though, and still had time to stop for coffee AND I got a parking spot! (Something that is often impossible at my school if you get here after 7:20am. My 7:18am arrival scored me one of the last four spots...) I think the sunny weather helps too. It's supposed to be SIXTY today! Unfortunately, I probably won't get to take advantage of it since I get out of work at 2:30, have acupuncture at 3, and therapy at 4:30.

Update on III- he was feeling better last night, and I would like to think I helped contribute to that. Work is still shitty and he's very frustrated. He talked to his supervisor, who is completely inept so that was unhelpful, but at least he knows he's done what he can. And I probably feel better knowing I did what I can. He really appreciated the card and gift and said it made his day better. He had a doctor's appointment, so he was able to leave work early for that and was home by five. I made pizza for dinner, and I shaved my legs! And we all know what that means... ;-) Maybe that's contributing to my good mood too...
