Caffeine is a Drug and I Really Like It

Thank you everyone for the sweet comments.  It’s nice to know that you’re all out there like an invisible security blanket.  I can’t imagine going through all of this without blogging about it.  Thank you Thank you!

So what do you do with yourself after your 4th BFN?

  • Leave work early
  • Go shoe shopping (buy nothing)
  • Salivate over hiking and camping gear at Paragon (but buy nothing)
  • Vow to buy as many Merrell shoes as possible (but not today)
  • Devour Scuba Diving magazine and travel guidebooks to Bali at Union Square’s Barnes and Noble (why would I buy it when I can read it for free there?)
  • Do Yoga
  • Eat Thai food
  • Get Dessert (mango and sticky rice! YUM!)
  • Stay up too late reading
What do you do the next day?
  • Work from home
  • Sleep late instead of working
  • Wake up and make a double espresso latte
  • Get super wired
  • Actually decide to get a little work done
  • Find yourself researching IVF options in Thailand
  • Decide this clinic is a excellent option for the future at a fraction of the cost in the USA
  • Wonder if you should just go now
  • Drop off dry cleaning
  • Meet friend for Sushi (yah raw fish!)
  • Take new jeans to tailor
  • Pick up shoes from cobbler
  • Go to drugstore
  • Pay rent
  • Download music
  • Email RE 
  • Shop for sperm
  • Do two loads of laundry
  • Pick up vegetable share from farm co-op
  • Go to Pilates
  • Get a pedicure
  • Read on the couch eating leftover Thai food from last night
  • Realize that while mango lasts a day, alas coconut sticky rice does not.  
  • Vow to just eat it all next time.
  • Think about going to beach tomorrow instead of working….
Sorry if that bored you, but damn it was a productive day!
Thank you caffeine.  I may even break my rule and have you again tomorrow.  Maybe not.
