i spoke with my husband about the feelings of desperation and depression i am having right now surrounding the start of our new round of IVF. i explained how i need something else to focus on other than it taking forever to get through each stage. i’m on day 5 of 16 days of birth control and am really struggling to keep my shit together knowing that i still have over 30 days to go with all this.
while we were making dinner i told him my dilemma. we discussed the fact that i usually have some sort of project on the go (he knows i’m a total busybody usually) but right now i don’t. i don’t have any furniture to refinish, no rooms to repaint or decorate, no gardening to work on, etc. i’m doing lots of little spring cleaning things and what not but nothing is really quite fitting the bill in terms of preoccupying my mind.
i confessed to him that i daydream that he’ll come home one day and say “honey, pack your bag, we’re going on a trip!”. my husband, however, is so practical, routine and quite frankly frugal that i know this is more of a fantasy.
so when he mentioned the may long weekend coming up and said, “lets do our new york trip now’ i nearly dropped the frying pan!
may 17-19 is the Victoria Day long weekend and the monday is a holiday. now that i have a different job that means i don’t have to be around to work that day 🙂
so, we’re going to the finger lakes and he’s left all the plans to me. where to stay, what to see, where to eat.
so far i have booked one night at the Abner Adams House B&B in East Bloomfield and one night at a private residence in Auburn (through airbnb.com). have any of you heard of airbnb?! it’s amazing. i highly recommend you check it out. my husband and i started a listing of our own last night actually! if you’re ever in the innisfil/barrie area of ontario, come stay with us 🙂
we’re going to check out the antique shops along the Bloomfield Antique Mile.
probably fit in some golf, definitely a wine tasting (or three!)
this will give me time to think about something else while i finish out my BC pills. i will finish them May 11th and will start my injections on the day we leave (May 16).
oh! while i’m thinking of it –
– get ice packs and cooler for transporting injectable drugs over the border during romantic pre-IVF vacation BAHAHAHA
